It may have been born from a pandemic-driven obsession, but it is a category set to define the cooler months as we step into Autumn. The journey toward this streamlined sense of comfort and utility began at athleisure, and now it’s a new kind of elegant versatility.
Ultimately, the extended trend focuses on the fact that you can be relaxed in it, but if you have meetings to go to or errands to run, it can transition into the situation seamlessly. Think tone-on-tone beige, rust, grey, and all white. Relaxed ‘tailoring’ is here to stay!
If you, like me, haven’t reached a point of fatigue with loungewear yet and are ready to add some more comfortable fashion trends into your wardrobe… These are the styles you can wear out your front door.
THE TRACKSUIT SET
Worn with a blazer, jewellery or at the gym and in the city, with a long coat and a plain t-shirt, the tracksuit is no longer reserved for weekends. It has become an ally in everyday life. The fact that it’s super comfortable is just a happy coincidence! Don’t dismiss the tracksuit. Why cosy up in old sweats or a stained t-shirt when you can snuggle up in a little stylish nostalgia, instead?

THE OVERSIZED ZIP-UP
There may not be many in Queensland, but there are days in the winter weeks we are tempted to leave the house in a hoodie and a blanket. Expect to see oversized hoodie’s or zip-up silhouettes styled over dresses or layered underneath blazers this season. Mix oversized clothing with pieces that will show your body: a shorter dress or skinny jeans. The warm and loose-fitting garment is a modern staple that everyone should own.
Get The Look: Collar Pleat Shirt Dress $115, Zip-Up Hoodie $99, Quilted Oversized Shoulder Bag $99, COS.
If approached correctly, the resulting ensemble should be stylish, comfortable and sophisticated.
