Relaxation has never been so fashionable before. This whole “slow life” philosophy of mindfulness, being still and in the present moment means watching men relax more, recover after a long day at work, and even spend Saturday night lounging on the couch. .
And because fashion is a spokesperson for current cultural trends, luxury brands are also turning to rest, crafting well-designed garments to simply be in the house, like a good Pijama.
Men's Leisure Clothing
Made from soft cotton or exotic cashmere, and impeccably cut and tailored, some clothing items are so refined today that men wear their sweatshirts indoors and outdoors, in the right style, of course.
Neutral or traditional colors navy blue, black, white and literally fifty shades of gray, are the homogeneous palette for the contemporary television addict; delving into reds, purples and greens for more sophisticated and silky items, as famous icons used to wear.
Outside of the domains of overalls, sweaters and sweatpants are the most potentially common and tragic household item for men; the need for comfort is often detrimental to style. From above or below, the cotton loop back jersey is extremely comfortable, breathable, and the most affordable fabric for your sweats (unless pure polyester is chosen, which is not recommended).
The most luxurious material of all? Wool, silk or cashmere. And opting for a mix of one of these with cotton or a cheaper synthetic gives much-needed longevity to sweats. And it increases the likelihood that they can be machine washed.
For an adjustable fit, look for drawstring trackies and pockets, opting for zippers on these to prevent important keepsakes from falling out and getting into the crevices of the sofa. You have to think about tailored pants for the silhouette of the pants, slim and that does not tighten the contours of the leg. Ribbed cuffs at the ankle give the bottom extra refinement through tapering.
Like the front pleats, to imitate suit pants, pull up the top. For more detail, contrast stitching, contrasting cuff colors and additional pockets (on the back or side of the leg) are recommended, as well as zippers that function as aesthetic décor and have functional appeal.
Like sweatpants, sweaters should be thin, but not restrictive, and have functional points of interest: tapered cuffs and hems, and a ribbed neckline. Look for modern intarsia patterns and retro prints for sweaters (the set of prints looks less childish on the top than on the bottom).
You can also choose to stick with navy blue, gray or black, infallible for a minimalist style. Again, the zippers and pockets add active details that look great and have a function.
From boxer shorts to long johns (thermal underwear), underwear is a very personal decision. When shopping for underwear as break wear, the following should be considered: Finding a pair that breathes well and is supportive but not too tight.
For the former, avoid satin boxers as they stifle the flow of air. For a great all-rounder, opt for affordable and comfortable cotton with a bit of stretch when buying a blend with stretch fibers. And to the synthetics it is preferable to discard them; private parts will appreciate it, especially in summer.
Cool and Comfortable T-shirts
Once again, comfort is key. As clothes for being at home, avoid worrying about the rules of folding the shirt. There is also no need to worry too much about the neckline of the shirt. If you always opt for pure cotton, opt for the scoop for a looser and longer fit or the scoop or V neck for the standard slim-to-regular fit.
The collarless design of the t-shirt is also a simple, matched version of the pajama shirt. And just like the sweatshirt or cuffed joggers, basic tees are just right for slipping into your everyday fashion arsenal. Therefore, it is necessary to choose shirts of good cut and color, also designed for outdoor use, to maximize their value-use ratio.
The robes, are perfect to put on after the shower, and are a comfortable option of outerwear for a night at home. Most quality robes come with pockets and a belt for secure closure and back shaping, as well as an ultimate shawl collar; sometimes made in a contrasting color or fabric for added style and texture.
The cotton jersey is the most versatile - it provides comfort and quality, while a flannel and cotton blend will provide some extra warmth in winter. Do you want to spend some money? Silk adds an elegant element to living room clothes. And, if you agree with a bit of a flashy robe, opting for a deep red Jacquard or paisley with brown trim is very European.
The pijamas they are meant to be a peculiar representation of personal style. So, you have to play safely in the bedroom, why not inject some pattern and color? For the classic gentleman, the pijamas Plaid or striped prints are great this season, in primary red, navy blue, white or dark green, reminiscent of times when the aristocracy didn't have to work.
Meanwhile, pastel jacquard fabrics are, like dressing, more refined and springy, some with colored piping on the edge of collared pajama shirts. For the modern look, a plain T-shirt and cotton pants, short or long, are elegant and easy (and a little more attractive to the bed partner than a formal pajama).
Pants should be relaxed and light, with loose elastics at the waist and ankle. The fabrics are more diverse: from pure silk to cotton or flannel and wool materials for the winter months.
Slippers are at home as rest clothing. Perfect for little trips outside, like donning clothes out of line or picking up the mail, the sneaker is as luxurious as you want it to be.
Woven leather versions are at the more premium end of the spectrum, especially when made from calfskin, while velvet slippers with embroidered toe detail are a luxurious option and a great way to add subtle color: burgundy, forest green or navy blue, to its otherwise neutral, lounge look.
In the current scenarios where being at home has almost become a new reality, looking good is not a luxury but a necessity.
Looking for models of suede moccasins with a fleece lining in the colder months is recommended. Avoid novelty sneakers; Giant animal legs and Disney character heads are strictly prohibited.
