The temperature has finally dropped, and with governments imposing new restrictions all across the country, it’s time to hunker down at home. To help you make it through the chill, we’re rounding up the best loungewear brands to stock up on before winter hits. From the coziest slippers to the sweat suits our editors swear by, your comfort level this season will be off the charts.
One of the original sweatpants brands, Lazypants offers the ultimate in comfort for those chilly winter days. Stock up on the beloved ultra-soft sweat sets or pick up a cozy hoodie in the trendiest style of the year: tie-dye.
One of the most successful companies to come out of Canada, Lululemon has a loyal following for good reason. The company’s activewear easily transitions into loungewear, making it a favourite of both fitness fanatics and comfort seekers. From the Align pants (seriously, the material is a must-try) to the Tundra Trek Half Zip, Lululemon’s fashion-meets-function line is perfect for both working out and working from home.
Undergarment company Knix may have made a name for itself with period-protecting underwear, but it’s expanded to so much more. The company now offers tanks with built-in support, sleep sets, rompers and cozy waffle knits. The waffle robe and LuxeLift Evolution Tank will get you through winter.
Smash and Tess
Smash + Tess has become one of the best loungewear brands thanks to its beloved rompers. What started as a limited collection of onesies has now expanded to include celebrity collaborations, robes, dresses and accessories. However, the hero product is still the super comfortable Friday romper.
When Kim Kardashian West launched a line of shapewear, nobody could have predicted it would morph into one of the best loungewear brands on the market. In addition to the body skimming undergarments, SKIMS now offers seven additional comfortable and cozy collections. Between the just-launched Velour collection, including matching suits and sleepwear, and the soft lounge collection, SKIMS has everything you need to make it to spring.
Roots is the OG in Canadian comfort, offering up warm and cozy sweats since 1973. The company hasn’t veered too far from its roots over the years, still serving up its fleece staples but with added comfort and softer materials. Try the Cabin Zip Stein Sweatshirt (made with ultra-soft fleece) or the Ava Reverse Fleece Zip Mock which gets its softness from the reverse-fleece style.
When Aritzia’s in-house brand TNA came out with a line called COZYAF (which stands for Cozy As Fleece, FYI), it was pretty apparent that it was aiming to become one of the best loungewear brands on the market. And the company succeeded. Made with “premium fleece with a sueded face, brushed back and cloud-nine cozy feel,” the entire line is what winter dreams are made of. (Just add hot chocolate and a roaring fireplace.)
Pyjamas are having a major moment in 2020, thanks to our new work-from-home lifestyle. What used to be solely for sleeping can now pass as acceptable business meeting attire — if you pick the right sets, of course. Eberjey offers the ultimate in comfort and style, meaning these are PJs you will truly live in.
A cozy winter getup isn’t complete without a pair of ultra warm and uber soft slippers. Manitobah Mukluks made a name for itself as one of the country’s best loungewear brands (the moccasins are like walking on a cloud) and now you can bring the comfort home with a pair of shearling slippers.
Love & Lore
Available exclusively at Indigo, Love & Lore is exactly what Canadians need to get through the season. The line includes everything from robes to slippers to pyjama sets in materials like brushed fleece, faux fur and soft jersey.
