No wardrobe is complete without T-shirts. The only piece so versatile that can go well with workwear, casual wear, partywear, and sleepwear! While picking tees for loungewear, try picking up natural fibers like cotton, silk, linen, cotton with modal as your major focus is comfort while sleeping and these fabrics would provide the right warmth and breeziness that you need.


Summer calls for some great linen shorts while you can opt for fleece shorts during winters. Being my favorite, I not only get sets that have shorts but even loose ones that can be paired with anything. Trust me, they make my life a lot easier. They’re easy, breezy, and make me sexy at the same time!


We tend to spend most of our time sitting in our rooms under an AC which obviously makes us feel colder after some time. Sweatshirts not only make a cool outfit during winters but can be a comfortable choice for a flexible loungewear outfit. Of course, you need to keep in mind the fabrics that are likely to be used for different seasons.


If you’re fond of athleisure and tomboy aesthetics, Sweatpants and joggers will be your favorite. You can also get sweatshirts and sweatpants as co-ords while you can easily pair T-shirts with any jogger. When picking joggers, you can still to your style, but do keep a few neutrals handy for running errands!

5.Pajama sets

Pajama sets are hassle-free sets that need no introduction. As they come in sets, you don’t even need to rethink about what to pair with what.H&M, Marks and Spencer, Honeydew Intimates, Saslax are few brands you can find the best pajama sets.

6.A Satin Night Dress

Satin dresses work great for nights when you want to feel sexy and comfortable. These cute little camisole dresses have my heart! Not only do they look vibrant but they also give a premium look and feel which you’ll love!

7.Camisoles/ Bralettes

Whether you’re a t-shirt person or a bralette, that you choose, but you can replace t-shirts with camisoles and bralettes and wear them depending on your mood. Marks and Spencer does one of the best bralettes, camisoles, and pajama sets for sleeping.


You can use cardigans as a medium of layering with camisole, and leggings. Dorsu Cardigans are the best types of cardigans you can choose for. Keep at least 2 such cardigans solely for layering purposes.


Co-Ords are an easy choice to pick. Cotton and satin co-ords for sleepwear are any easy choices as you don’t need to think twice about what to wear with what. Also, you can easily lounge in the whole day, which works best for a sleepover with girlfriends.

10.Socks and Slippers

For Socks, I highly recommend Nike 3-Pack Everyday Plus Cushion Training Crew Socks, H&M 2-Pack Chenille Socks, while you can also add woolen socks like Ysense Women’s warm knit, People’s unisex socks for winters. You can also pick sustainable and durable slippers from Baabuk, Allbirds wool loungers, Rawganic woolen slippers for daily use.
