It’s 7.00 am and the alarm is ringing. Begrudgingly you heave yourself out from underneath your warm duvet and hop towards the shower quickly so as not to let that unmistakeable nip in the air take hold. 7.30 am and you flick on the breakfast news. The weatherman wildly gesticulates at his bluescreen and declares “a cold snap is on its way”.
8.15am you leave the house and find your breath catches on the air for the first time. As you walk to the car/bus/tube you note the sound of fallen autumn leaves crunching underfoot and it’s at about this time that you pull your light jacket closer, lament that you forgot to drape a scarf around your neck and long for the evening when you can curl up on the sofa in your loungewear and slippers, adjust your thermostat and resolutely affirm your position not to leave the house.
At figleaves.com our first line of defence against the cold is our snug loungewear. This winter our favourite is the super soft figleaves 100% cashmere lounge pant and hoodie. As all our loungewear is buy one get one half price at the moment we couldn’t wait to share it with our Facebook fans and Twitter followers. They loved it but they wanted to know just how it could be worn, and we’re more than happy to oblige with some fresh inspiration for lounging looks.
Just because it’s grey outside we understand that you don’t want your clothes to reflect that. Defy traditional greys and blacks and add a splash of colour to your loungewear with one of our tees or camisoles in fuchsia or jade green to remind yourself of the sunnier days gone by and those ahead. Put your feet up and settle into a good book all the while imagining yourself to be lying out on a Caribbean beach.
If like us you’re a little impatient and fancy indulging in a spot of winter sun, then the warm and comfortable cashmere numbers make for a perfect ensemble for your flight. And to be the envy of the airport terminal and all the duty free shoppers, accessorise your loungewear with a fabulous slice of arm candy to add a touch of luxe to your loungers. We love the figleaves Leather and Suede Snake skin shopper in eye popping magenta.
But alas, hiding or running away from mean Jack Frost is not the answer, and at some point you’re going to need to face up to the fact that the milk is not going to buy itself. So whether it be nipping to the local newsagent, grabbing a coffee to go, or a quiet Sunday brunch you’ll need your new loungey best friends to keep you in insulated company. Team with Just Sheepskin boots to keep your toes toasty and this chunky teal French connection scarf to add on trend interest from this season’s colour palette.
As it was our community that inspired us to write this, we hope we’ve inspired you in return to get cosy in your cashmere. Keep sharing your ideas with us and we’ll keep listening. Until next time happy lounging.
