The Sustainable Loungewear Guide

What is Loungewear?

Loungewear represents the ultimate blend of comfort and wearable and sits between the categories of athleisure and sleepwear. Considered suitable for home, work and weekend wear, women’s loungewear has continued to evolve with tailored specifications for a more stylish, wear-anywhere take. Whether you prefer a more casual, sporty look or are seeking a little more glamour from your WFH ensembles, a considered loungewear approach can master the balance of cosy and chic, pared back and put-together. Explore our range of relaxed pants and kimono sets, transeasonal knitwear and organic tees designed to mix and match for your own take on this popular style category.

Why should your loungewear be sustainable?

Often on high rotation, these pieces should be well loved and timeless for decades of wear. Better still, select lounge apparel cut from conscious fabrications including Recycled (GRS) Cotton, Organic (GOTS) Cotton, Organic (GOTS) Linen and Hemp – all materials at the top of the MAURIE + EVE fibre matrix.

Essential Loungewear Items

Have you explored our ‘Peace’ series? Cut from 100% GOTS certified organic fabrications, these women’s loungewear pieces feature a series of exclusive prints from fellow female artists and are designed to manifest mindful intentions wherever you go. The series includes cosy sweaters and our signature oversized Tees for mum and mini. Style yours with pre-loved denim or underpin your favourite blazer through the cooler months.

LOUNGEWEAR SETS

It has been said that ‘dressing for the office’ can power productivity. Working from home? Ignite creativity in relaxed, 2-piece lounge sets with just the right amount of polish. The Indus Kimono and Pant set features a soft burst of Lemon to stimulate mind and mantras and looks just as chic with bare feet as a low strapped sandal. For a sportier take, pair the Inner Peace Tee in Cream with the Sun and Moon Knit Short in Mustard.

THE MULTI-PURPOSE DRESS 

Timeless garments are minimalistic in design and offer unlimited styling potential. Choose pieces that serve an array of everyday events. From morning coffee run, to ocean dip, Zoom call and coffee meet, these mini styles meet the ethical loungewear brief with all organic fabrications and the option to style up or down.  

Loungewear 3 Ways

Sets

These lounge lovers are made from textured organic cotton in a breezy shape. They sit high and elasticised on the waist and taper with ankle-ties at the hem. Pair with a loose shirt and sandals for a relaxed take.

Jumpsuits

These pants are the low-key-lush statement. Designed with an elasticised waistband and soft wide leg, these versatile icons are the ultimate form of sartorial self-care. 

Double Life Pant

This straight leg pant beckons slower days with a frayed hemline and adjustable waist. Features side pockets and touchable texture. Style with the Double Life Tee.

How To Wear Loungewear Out

1. Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise

The right accessories can completely transform an outfit. While that sweater and knitted biker short might scream Yoga time, add a pair of oversized sunglasses, edgy combat boots and layered gold jewellery, and you’ve made athleisure instantly chic.

2. Make it Monochrome

A main reason suits look so sophisticated is their head-to-toe colour approach. Make it a set and instantly up the sophistication factor.

3. Layer it Up 

Layers scream style. Layer your Teach Peace purchase with an oversized blazer or try converting your Tee into a crop by simply tucking it up into your (super comfy) sports bra. This will create an additional layer to play with, allowing you to underpin an oversized shirt such as the Ride Out Shirt without making an additional purchase. Remember, the most sustainable item is the one already in your wardrobe!
