Gone are the days where style trumps comfort.
As a reflection of the times, brands, influencers, and editors are no longer forgoing comfort for style and have instead found a way to make both a priority. Whether you're getting dressed to stay at home or searching for a chic-off-duty look, the secret to building a cozy and comfy outfit is investing in relaxed core staples made from elevated materials. Garments like sweatpants and fleece pullovers that were once reserved for lounging are being reimagined for the new season.
With just a glance at the latest offering from some of the biggest names in fashion, you'll quickly realize that the idea of easy dressing is having a major moment — and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Prada showed an extensive offering of luxury thermal "long Johns" and satin slips for its Spring/Summer 2021 collection. While Dior's Resort 2021 show took a less on-the-nose approach, presenting a more laidback version of the free-flowing gowns that Maria Grazia Chiuri is known for. Regardless of your personal preference, there's an undeniable influx of cozy staples on the market and it's worth taking notice.
