Rarely has having a wardrobe full of outfits felt more pointless than in 2020. Even working from home — once we’d mastered the art of the Zoom — scarcely required anything more sartorially challenging than dressing our top halves, while the hidden-from-view bottom half languished in leggings and pyjamas. Now, with the colder weather upon us and no real end to our time at home in sight, it’s probably about time to embrace loungewear with gusto  — after all, we’re unlikely to be able to justify festive season outfits this year, and the sumptuous robes and slippers of hotel and spa stays are kind of off-limits, too. And with everyone’s favorite joggers worn through by now, there’s never been a better time to gift loungewear with an eco twist.

Just add a few scented candles and your gift list is a wrap!

Multipurpose and stylishly organic.

1. Viverano Poncho

Do we ever grow up enough to stop wanting our very own comfort blanket? One of the best things about this Viverano poncho is that it provides enough of a cover up to make you look ‘done’ if you have to answer the door or dash out to the shops … the rest of the time, you can just snuggle down in it and stay cosy. Made from 100% organic cotton, it’s ethically woven and stitched at a GOTS and Fairtrade certified facility in India. Another bonus? Once we start flying again, it will make the perfect travel blanket – meaning that you can swerve the airline offering and its single-use plastic wrap.
