I dont know about you, but all I want for Christmas this year is cute and comfy loungewear and that’s it. Since that whole “holiday outfit shopping” thing has gone out the window, why not use those funds on some fun and actually functional pieces instead, right? I have been admittedly been missing the mark a bit on the “matching” part when it comes to loungewear. But I’m thinking the holidays are the perfect excuse to finally set up my game. If you’re in the same “let’s just be comfy and still try to be cute” boat as I am, climb aboard sis and let’s do some shopping!
Oh, and did I mention the best part? All of the pieces/sets mentioned below are all from LA-based or LA made brands – because there’s nothing we love more than getting cute stuff AND simultaneously supporting our small and local businesses!!!
Stay cute. Stay cozy. And stay sane.
THE 15 BEST LOUNGEWEAR SETS MADE IN LA
My favorite pieces of 2020 have all been from Aquarius Cocktail. And once I got my hands on some of the recent loungewear pieces they’ve been producing I officially peaked. Their sweats are made from a cotton that has been washed to a level of softness I never knew existed. I highly recommend getting the tie dye sweatpants AND the matching pink pullover sweatshirt. But at least treat yourself to one!
HARPER SWEATPANTS ($198) | VIOLET SWEATSHIRT ($198)
Mate The Label has always been a solid go-to for ethically “made in LA” cotton basics. But their matching loungewear sets have always been some of my favorites. I just love all of the interesting colors these pieces come in. They’re the types of sets you’ll want multiples of! (Note they also offer extended sizes!)
ORGANIC TERRY RAGLAN SWEATSHIRT ($108) | ORGANIC TERRY CLASSIC JOGGER ($128) – both come in tons of beautiful colors!
Does it get any more classic than Michael Stars? Michael Stars is the epitome of cotton basics. But did you know they’re an LA-based and LA made brand? (Love that!) I just got my hands on a few of their new loungewear pieces myself and LOVE love love them (featured pic above). My favorite thing to wear around the house right now (besides my famous Costco flannels) is my long Michael Stars cardigan; pair that with a matching top and bottom and its a whole “winter white” vibe!
CANDICE LONG SLEEVE DUSTER ($138) | JULIET CREW NECK THERMAL ($88) | SUDIE THERMAL SHORT ($78)
Resa is one of my favorite brands in LA to shop for dresses but they’ve recently come up with a few different matching loungewear sets that are just to die for – I mean who’s not sold over a “ComfyAF” collection? Love that they made a short set as well as a set with long pants, but both silky numbers come in a few colors!
COMFY AF SHORT SET ($128) | COMFY AF SET ($128)
Sydne Summer is one of my favorite LA-based fellow bloggers to follow and as of this year, she launched her own collection of masks and loungewear! Her masks are hands down my favorite (seriously, I have three) and I am OBSESSED with her new loungewear pieces as well. Everything looks so cozy but she did a great job at making sure all of these pieces were functional. comfortable, and still chic as hell. I’ve got a few favorites:
LONG SLEEVE DRESS IN AQUAMARINE ($68) | LONG CARDIGAN IN AQUAMARINE ($58) WIDE LEG PANT IN MERLOT ($48) | OFF THE SHOULDER TOP IN MERLOT ($48)
Parachute is definitely one of the “bigger” brands on this list but dammit if they don’t know how to define comfort! They make some of the most cozy robes, sippers, towels, comforters – the list goes on – so naturally they’ve made the perfect loungewear set that’s actually available for both men and women! This is one of the more lightweight lounge sets and has a bit of a vintage vibe to it with its “waffle” material.
WOMEN’S WAFFLE LOUNGE SET ($149) | CLOUD COTTON ROBE ($99)
One of my favorite brand discoveries of 2020 has been Etre LA who’s bread and butter is simple, basic, neutral, and of course chic loungewear. From tops, cardigans, shorts, joggers, to skirts, it’s easy to mix and match any of their super soft ribbed pieces. I am the proud owner of a full Etre LA look and love that I can just as easily lounge around my house in these pieces as I can go out for a meal or to run errands.
EMMY CAMISOLE ($28) | EMILY RIBBED CARDIGAN ($68) | ELI RIBBED SKIRT ($58)
Strut This is an LA based premium fitness fashion brand that makes some of the most fun activewear out there, so it’s a no brainer the same applies to their more cozy loungewear pieces! They have SUPER cute joggers but most of them have limited sizing options, click that hyperlinked text to check out your options though. The same seems to go for their SUPER cute sweatshirts, limited sizing left on most but still worth checking out! I get the impression they run small batches and offer new items/prints often, so I’d just keep checking back! Besides the loungewear stuff, their regular workout leggings are really comfortable and soft as well, so be sure to peruse that section too.
VAUGHN JOGGER ($95) | SONOMA SWEATSHIRT OLIVE CHEETAH ($110) | PIPPA SWEATSHIRT – AMBER ($119)
“Made in Los Angeles for ladies who like to lounge” – SOLD! But in all seriousness, MASONgrey has some of the cutest and most cozy-looking loungewear out there. I love their array of prints and colors, love that they don’t just do sweatpants/loungepants and long sleeves, they also do robes (long and short), slips (long and short), PJs, and more. It’s hard to pick when you kinda want it all!
KIMONO – BLUSH TIE DYE ($128) | SLEEPY CREWNECK – BLACK STARS ($54) | SLEEPY JOGGER – BLACK STARS ($78) | SLEEPY SHORT – BLACK STARS ($48) – all of these items come in a number of colors and patterns! Take your pick!
Belen is another one of my go-to “basics” brands that makes their minimal, comfy, and chic pieces right here in LA. They’ve got a few loungewear sets to choose from but I love the look of their more vintage looking sweat shorts that pair with a matching sweatshirt. They make regular sweatpants as well though and they keep everything classic by offering every piece in either black, white, or grey. Simple and yet effective.
FRANKIE SHORTS ($65) | FRANKIE SWEATSHIRT ($68) | GINA SWEATPANTS ($90) | GINA SWEATSHIRT ($68)
Spirit Jersey is an LA-based streetwear brand and they’ve just launched a whole men’s and women’s loungewear collection called “Love Letter to Los Angeles”. And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t totally freaking out over every single piece. The collection is so fun, SO LA, and I personally can’t wait to get my hands on a few of these pieces myself!
LOS ANGELES SPIRIT JERSEY SWEATSHIRT IN SURF GREEN ($118) | SURF GREEN UNISEX CUT OFF SHORT ($88) | HOLA LUZ DEL SOL SWEATSHIRT ($118) | LUZ DEL SOL SWEATPANTS ($118)
Clare V. is LA’s queen of accessories featuring great prints and bold colors, and while the brand has dabbled a bit in apparel over the past few years I love that as of this year they’ve leaned into the loungewear trend and have made an entire collection of some of the most fun and unique comfy pieces out there. The prints alone have me wanting to put every piece in my cart, but no one is doing loungewear to the level of creativity that Clare V is. Just look at those sleeves!!
SWEATPANTS – MARINE FADED JAGUAR ($165) | PUFF SLEEVE SWEATSHIRT – MARINE FADED JAGUAR ($135) | HOODIE – MARINE FADED JAGUAR ($199)
Raise your hand if you’re the proud owner of at least one pair of Beyond Yoga’s famous buttery soft leggings! I’m wearing one of my favorite pairs as we speak. And while the brand is mostly known for their yoga pants, they do in fact make a number of items dedicated to simply relaxing as well. I love to pair my favorite Spacedye High Waisted leggings with one of my Costco flannels. But if we’re going the route of something much more attractive… see the tagged items below.
CAMO PRINTED LOUNGE AROUND JOGGER ($99) | CAMO FAVORITE RAGLAN CREW PULLOVER ($99) | FEATHERWEIGHT DAY & NIGHT SLEEP ROMPER ($98) – dying for this to come back in stock, waiting patiently!
LACAUSA is “redefining basics, blending romantic silhouettes with a contemporary bohemian twist”. And I love that LACAUSA means “LA (Los Angeles) -CA (California) -USA” and “La Causa” in Spanish means “The Cause”. I have a few of their basic tanks/tees and am totally into their recent collection of slip dresses and loungewear. They’re dabbling in the tie dye trend, which, I know we’re all here for. And they’re also doing a variety of cute matching short/top sets that come in some pretty pastel colors!
SLATER SWEATSHIRT ($132) comes in 4 colors | SLATER SWEATPANTS ($132) comes in 2 colors | BELLA TEE ($40) comes in 3 colors | KIKI SHORTS ($40) comes in 3 colors
Damn. Reformation has truly outdone themselves with this loungewear collection. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, they cant make an ugly piece of clothing if they tried. From sweatpants. knits, shorts, sweatshirts, tees, tanks, cardigans, pullovers… they’ve done it all, and done it all flawlessly. AN LA GIRLS DREAM COLLECTION,
BOYFRIEND KNIT SHORT ($58) comes in 6 colors | HUNTER CROP SWEATSHIRT ($58) comes in 6 colors | MARION TWO PIECE ($128) comes in 4 colors
The second I hit “post” on this blog post, I came across a new and super trendy LA based loungewear brand, NIA. And I’m plotting my purchase as we speak. All I can say is that loungewear has never been more “cool”, and if NIA had a club I’d be a member.
BELLA HOODIE ($68) comes in grey, mint green, white | BRADLEY SWEATPANT ($78) comes in same colors | HOODED DUSTER CARDIGAN ($98) comes in black, dove, natural
I, like most LA girls, have had a love affair with Fred Segal for as long as I can remember, but I have to be honest I didn’t know they had their own line! And what they make is SO good! They perfectly intertwine their iconic brand with pieces that truly feel like a love letter to LA, and their recent loungwear pieces are pretty damn on point. Need those sweatpants ASAP!
LOS ANGELES SWEATPANT ($138) | PJS CREST SWEATPANTS ($128) | PJ’S CREST SWEATSHIRT ($138)
This is one of those brands that truly all the cool girls in LA are wearing, I’ve seen these chic sweats and comfies all over my Instagram and I have to say, it’s pretty tempting! There’s no denying that The Mayfair Group makes some pretty cute stuff! Love their bold color choices, positive printed messages, and their success in somehow managing to elevating sweats.
