Ask Belle: Stylish Weekend Loungewear

Dec 15, 2014

Hi Belle,

I have a weird question for you: What do you wear on the weekends?

I’m taking my first staycation after the holidays.  I’m just going to hang out at home with girlfriend, binge-watch West Wing episodes and order takeout.  It’s going to be great.  I really don’t want to spend three days in my pajamas though, so I hope you have some suggestion for stylish “couch clothes.”

Love the blog! Charlotte

Oh, how I love a good stay-cation.  May I also recommend House of Cards and, if you’re a Sorkin fan, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip?

I have a very strict weekend uniform: leggings and sweatshirts with tunic tops.  That’s all I wear when I’m just hanging out at home.

My leggings of choice are the Zella Live In Leggings (also in plus-size).  Though if you’re looking for something cheaper, the BP wide-waistband leggings are a good choice.

If it’s t-shirts you’re after, I love the $15 tees from Everlane.  They’re a great buy, and the perfect mix of fitted and slouchy.  Prefer something in a tunic length?  I like Victoria’s Secret Essential Tees, also $15.

Athleta Hurdle Wrap Neck Sweatshirt ($89)

My apartment is not exactly warm.  If I’m home, I’m wearing a sweatshirt.  I love Athleta’s sweatshirts; they’re chic and wear like iron.  This wrap-neck sweatshirt is great.  I also like their scoop neck Sharkbite sweatshirts for that slouchy, Jennifer Beals look.  And their Acacia sweater gives you the look of a sweatshirt in a soft, sweater-knit material.

Also, if you’re looking for a sweatshirt to replace the college or campaign sweatshirt most of us long in, I love a funnel-neck sweatshirt.  This Bella Lux sweatshirt is the perfect “grown-up” option.  And this funnel neck sweatshirt from Eddie Bauer is a great under-$50 option.  It also comes in five gorgeous colors.

Looking for loungewear for less?  Old Navy is the place to be.  This striped, funnel-neck pullover is the perfect mix of cozy and chic.  I also like this waffle-knit sweater and this basic hoodie, both under-$20.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for black leggings for petite women? I’m 4’ll and have a heck of a time finding leggings that don’t bunch up at my ankles.

    Belle – LOVE that you just recommended “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” – I second it! Such a shame that it only ran for one season. It was a pretty great show.

    What sort of underwear do people wear under their Zellas, or none?

    I would also suggest the Lou & Grey line at Loft for cute loungewear.
