If your loungewear collection currently consists of ratty old sweatshirts and holey trackies, elevate your wardrobe with pieces from these Australian loungewear brands. Comfortable enough to be worn around the house all day long but stylish enough to wear out to the shops and while running errands, soon you'll be wondering why your whole closet doesn't simply consist of loungewear. 

This list starts with more affordable loungewear brands if you're not looking to break the bank and ends with some more luxe brands if you feel like treating yourself to something a little more bougie. 

Since we've all been spending a lot of time at home, might as well make it a gorgeous place to be with some products from these homewares stores that deliver. Don't forget to set the mood with a candle or two from these Melbourne brands
