5 Ways to Wear the Lounge Sets - Outside and In!
As the designer and maker at Stylecamp, I believe wholeheartedly that the clothes we wear should not only look good, but make us feel good too.
There's nothing quite like the feeling of looking forward to wearing something that makes you feel elegant, stylish and even a little bit sexy. It can be a real-mood booster, especially during the testing times of 2020.
The 'new normal' sees many more of us adopting work-from-home lifestyles which has inevitably resulted in a desire for comfort dressing. Yet it's true that comfortwear can sometimes leave us not feeling the best version of ourselves.
For that reason, I was inspired to create lounge sets to effortllessly combine luxurious comfort with Stylecamp's signature timeless style. Something to suit our ever-changing modern lifestyles, and bring a little bit of feel-good vintage glamour to everyday dressing.
Worn as separates or as a complete outfit, these practical pieces are designed with life in mind, offering complete versatility whether lounging or working or celebrating.
Looking as effortlessly glamorous dressed down with slippers as they do dressed up with heels, there's no hint that this outift is your typical loungewear. As one customer phrased it so perfectly - 'I feel like I am wearing PJs but look like I am off to a cocktail party!'
There's no limits on how and where you can wear these sets, and their modern nod to elegant 1930s loungewear is sure to make you feel more than a bit special. Here's just a handful of ways you can wear these pieces and elevate your outfit for any occasion.
FOR CASUAL DAYS
I just love throwing the Myrna wrap top on with a casual pair of jeans and trainers. Wrap tops are infinitely timeless and flattering to wear for all shapes and sizes, and the substantial stretch velvet is not only comfortable but adds a real dose of luxury. It's a really simple way to elevate an everyday look.
This casual outfit is great for working at home, making you feel both smart and presentable for above-the-keyboard video-calls, but also means you can dash out the house and feel stylish and comfortable doing your daily errands.
FOR A DINNER DATE
How quickly the wrap top is transformed by a simple swap of the trouser! Teamed with a smart trouser and finishing the look with heels, this is the perfect office to dinner date look, or even a weekend celebration outfit.
Adding personal touches with jewellery and a sleek clutch, it's a sexy and sophisticated evening look with a festive touch that's comfortable and easy to wear all night - right up until you can deservedly kick off your heels when you get home.
FOR STAY-AT-HOME COMFORT
The matching velvet Hepburn trousers are ideal for stay-at-home lounging. The soft, silky velvet is so smooth against the skin, making them a joy to wear and luxuriate all day in comfort, while still feeling smarter than a jogger or pyjama bottom.
Although perfect as a glamorous outfit with the matching Myrna top, keep things in ultimate pared-back comfort for home by dressing them with a simple jersey tee. You can then indulge in a spot of relaxing yoga or light exercise, made easier with the split seam detail* that allows for complete freedom of movement

FOR A SPECIAL NIGHT OUT
These flattering wide leg trousers deserve a special night out too! The opulent velvet fabric shimmers in the light, making them a perfect base for a going-out outfit.
These stylish high waisted trousers feature an elastic back for ultimate comfort in wear, which is perfect for tucking in a silky blouse for an elegant evening look. The split seam version of these trousers also gives a truly satisfying 'swish' as you walk, adding to the drama of this outfit as an evening look.

READY TO PARTY
As a two-piece, the matching velvet wrap top and trousers are a total force when it comes to party dressing! Simply show-stopping in all its vintage-inspired glamour, all this outfit needs is a simple pair of heels to get the party started.
The fact it's comprised of separates makes this outfit doubly practical when worn as a two piece jumpsuit. Together, it's a statement-making outfit perfect for all kinds of special occasion gatherings, from weddings to birthdays - in fact every and any occasion when you want to feel special and stand from the crowd.
