Chill Canadian Summer Loungewear
Thanks to our yo-yoing climate and deep-rooted cottage culture, we as Canadians inherently get loungewear. From fleecy sweats and breezy muumuus to fancy, monogrammable sleep sets, our homegrown design talent crafts A-grade leisurewear for year-round lolling. Here, we’ve rounded up our top comfort-first picks plucked from coast to coast.
Franc The T-Shirt Dress
A T-shirt dress for the ages: crew neck, classic black and white stripes, a side slit for ease of movement. Thanks to Franc, the made-in-Toronto label with ethical fabrics and production, your lazy day uniform is now secured. Franc The T-Shirt Dress ($73)
Harly Jae Kea Top and Skirt
A matching set made for the WFH age and beyond. Made by small-batch, Vancouver-based fashion brand Harly Jae, this oatmeal-hued two-piece is stretchy, breathable and a total cinch to wear as separates. Harly Jae Kea Top ($155) and Skirt ($240)
Hayley Elsaesser x Coors Button Up
Toronto’s very own Princess of Prints, Hayley Elsaesser, does it again. This breezy, beer-printed button-up, a product of her latest collaboration with Coors Slice, is an ace piece for taking it easy around the house or as a cover-up for backyard BBQ-ing. Hayley Elsaesser x Coors Slice Menswear Fit Printed Viscose Button Up ($85)
Hoi Bo A-Frame Dress
Three reasons why this Hoi Bo-designed bag dress is your best friend: 1) It’s made of butter-soft supima cotton for max comfort. 2) It’s got a very desirable, extremely elegant drape. 3) When cinched with a long-sleeve or paired up with sandals, it lives beyond the confines of your house. Hoi Bo A-Frame Dress ($128)
Jackson Rowe Coverall Henley
This loose-fitting romper from Jackson Rowe eludes all the comfort-disrupting hang-ups that usually come with jumpsuits. Think of it as a cotton onesie for the grown-up set, one made for Office marathons or forthcoming beach days. Jackson Rowe Coverall Henley ($90)
Kip. Sleepwear Cotton Short Set
It’s time you got yourself some proper PJs – bonus points if they just so happen to work in the outside world. This luxe short set from Kip. Sleepwear, which comes with the option to be monogrammed at your discretion, gives us major Upper East Sider energy. Kip. Sleepwear Cotton Short Set ($250)
Kotn Culotte Sweatpants
Super-comfy, Egyptian cotton sweatpants disguised as office-ready culottes – why didn’t we think of this first?! Sending blessings to thoughtful basics brand Kotn who get it right every time. Kotn Culotte Sweatpants ($85)
Laura Siegel Over-Sized Soft Jersey Dress
Laura Siegel’s formula for effortless, artisan-made garments always hits the mark. This one, made from recycled modal (that soft, drape-y fabric you wish all your clothes were made of), has plenty of built-in use beyond a slothful day around the house. Laura Siegel Over-Sized Soft Jersey Dress ($361)
Lights of All House Coat
Handmade in Toronto using organic, responsibly sourced cotton, this delicate housecoat by Lights of All looks like it’s from the Lizzie McGuire era and we like it that way. Lights of All House Coat ($144.99)
Odeyalo Jacopo Emerald Pant
The two words getting us through isolation: elastic waistband. Despite the comfort-first fit, this modern pair of sweatpants from Odeyalo doesn’t skimp on style: a slim silhouette, graphic, oversized pockets, and that gorgeous emerald hue. Odeyalo Jacopo Emerald Pant ($190)
Roots Cabin Ringer Dress
Count on Roots, purveyor of perfectly nostalgic Canadiana, to deliver a pristine pick – done up in the heritage brand’s classic salt-and-pepper fabric with a touch of cabin stripe detail – for lazy mornings lakeside. Roots Cabin Ringer Dress ($58)
Sartoria High Waist Undie + Bralette Set
If there was ever a time to indulge in a cashmere lounge set, now would be it. We see this one – made from upcycled material and blessedly designed with a high-waist fit – being a prime pick for napping, digital dance parties, and yes, doing those endless dishes. Sartoria High Waist Undie + Bralette Set ($135)
The Sleep Shirt Short Sleep Shirt Midsummer Stripe
The piece we imagine some Hamptonite wearing when she wakes up on bazillion thread count sheets. This crisp, linen-cotton-blend sleep shirt (from the aptly named brand, The Sleep Shirt) now comes in a plus option to fit XL to 3X sizing, so everyone can get in on this bougie-ness. The Sleep Shirt Short Sleep Shirt Midsummer Stripe ($295)
Tentree W Bamone Sweatshort
Made from an eco-conscious combo of 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester, these fleece-y sweatshorts from Tentree, a Vancouver-based brand that plants ten trees for every item sold, are a must-pack pick for a cottage weekend. Tentree W Bamone Sweatshort ($55)
