Lockdown has been a great excuse to stop wearing tight jeans and slacks in favour of comfortable joggers, loose tees and flowy linen fits. If your loungewear collection currently consists of ratty old sweatshirts and holey trackies, elevate your wardrobe with pieces from these Australian brands. We've taken a liberal approach to loungewear, also incorporating resort-wear collections and pieces that can generally take you from bedtime to couch time, and on to picnic hangs and meanders down to the seaside. 

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 includes a mix of more affordable loungewear brands and some luxe brands if you feel like treating yourself to something a little more bougie.
