From affordable cashmere to the comfiest but still sexy underwear, loungewear just got luxe

Who'd have thought that in 2020 the elasticated waistband would become a fashion staple? With virtual catwalks referencing nineties tracksuits, and sloths our new spirit animal, we think that sitting down to Christmas dinner this year in our most superior slouchies, will be pretty much the vibe. Looking for inspiration? Welcome to the comfort zone...
