LUXE LOUNGEWEAR

For most of us, our pandemic wardrobe has pretty much consisted of comfort clothes (Zoom call waist-up outfits being the rare exception). Now as we slowly start to emerge from our oversized cocoons of shapeless sweats and slippers, we find ourselves conflicted. Loungewear feels good. We like being comfortable in our clothes, but let’s face it…most of our work-from-home wardrobes really only work well…well, at home.

So what’s a gal to do? We recommend a fresh take. A more updated and, dare we say, elegant version of the silhouettes you’ve come to love so much from your couch. And we’ve got just the looks for you…

French Terry Pearl Sweatshirt $69.99

You love your crew sweatshirt…now take it next level. Super soft French terry keeps you cozy while embellished pearls add just a touch of luxe. Wear it with your leggings for casual errand running or pair it with a dressy skirt for a night out. Either way, you’ll look dapper, not dowdy.

Velour Jogger $49.99

You’ve lived in them for months…okay, going on two years. And while no one’s going to give you a second look while you’re cruising the aisles of your grocery in your well-worn sweatpants, you can do better! These sumptuous velour beauties are just as comfy, but with a more trimmed silhouette. High rise waist helps elongate your legs, and we love the neutral color that can easily go with anything in your wardrobe.

Mock-neck Sherpa Pullover $49.99

If the area you’re living in hasn’t already seen snow on Turkey Day, we’re betting it will soon. This uber-plush pullover is like wrapping yourself in your favorite blanket. This would look amazing paired with some leather leggings, or even a drapey sweater skirt with some stomping boots. Donning this sherpa will keep you looking stylish instead of slobbish.

Rhinestone Trim Zip-up Jacket $69.98

Are you in love with your track jacket? So are we! But there are times when you’re going to wish it was a bit more elevated. Let us present to you this zip-up jacket. First, let’s talk length – it goes all the way down past the hips, like a proper coat. Next, we’ve got the bling – just a little on the arms to give an homage to the athletic stripe. And then there’s the fabric – not too bulky, but much more luxe than your standard track. This is a coat you can wear with your jeans and some booties for a night on the town, and no one will be stopping to ask you if you know directions to the nearest gym.

Rhinestone Trim Sport Set $139.50

Have your friends told you you need a track suit intervention? We say rather than judge – upgrade! This two-piece set is made from soft-as-a-cloud fabric, with just a hint of spandex to keep your look shapely, not shapeless. It also sports plenty of rhinestone trim on both the pants and the top, instantly unifying this as an outfit that’s sexy, not sloven.

TRAVELING IN STYLE

Your Thanksgiving Day travel was the dress rehearsal for the December holiday main events. How’d you fair? If the answer is “Great! Wearing my PJs came in real handy when our flight was delayed”…um, we should talk.

Contrary to belief, you can travel in clothes that are comfortable and pulled together. Really.

The ‘secret’ is to find outfits in fabrics that give, but don’t lose their shape or wrinkle easily. Here’s our recommendation for some must-have items you need in your holiday travel wardrobe rotation…

Beyond Travel™ Palazzo Pant $69.50

We have to start with pant, because it’s everything when you travel. These lovelies from Boston Proper’s Beyond Travel collection check all the boxes. They’re wrinkle-resistant, made with four-way stretch fabrication, have a seamless interior waistband (no pinching when you sit!) and a nice wide leg that’s chic. This will be the go-to for your holidays, work travel, or anytime you’re heading somewhere and need to look fresh upon arrival.

Beyond Travel™ Wide-Leg Short $49.50

What’s that, you say? You’re holiday travel is actually taking you to warmer climes? While this sounds like a curveball, we’ve still got you covered. Take everything we just described about BP’s travel pant, and turn it into a bermuda-length short. Comes in black (shown above) or ocean blue if you prefer a pop of color. Either way, you’re warmer weather travel conundrum is cured.

Beyond Travel™ Tulip-Hem Mock Neck Top $69.50

A good travel top should be universally flattering, easy to move in, wrinkle-resistant and versatile enough to go with a variety of leggings, pants and trousers. This one is all that, and comes in the perfect holiday red to put you right in the season. The mock neck and long sleeves will combat that airplane chill and the tulip-hem looks great on all body sizes…plus won’t expose anything you don’t want as you lift your luggage and bend your way to your seat.

Beyond Travel™ Zip Front Jacket $99.99

You’ve got a lot you need ready at hand when traveling. Your ticket, ID/passport, mask, wipes…that’s a lot of stuff. You need a travel jacket that can handle and hold those items and more, all while looking stylish. Like all the clothing in the Beyond Travel collection, this jacket has 4-way stretch and doesn’t wrinkle. It also comes with a double-zip front, so you can sit comfortably and keep your topside toasty. Plus it has four sets of front pockets – 2 snap front for quick items like ticket and mask, and 2 zippered pockets for valuable items such as your ID and credit cards (no need to dig out your wallet).

Beyond Travel™ Cheetah Print Leggings $49.99

All these solids got you down? Craving some print to inject into your travel look? These animal print leggings are just what the travel doctor ordered. They’ll look great paired with winter boots or your fav sneaks.

OH-SO-SEXY STAPLES

They are called ‘staples’ for a reason. They’re the items you reach for again and again to round out your looks. A great staple piece must be well-constructed, extremely versatile and timeless in design.

With the old year ending, now is an ideal time to take some stock of your wardrobe and see where some retiring of your previous tried-and-true items should occur. Here are five fantastic options that will help fill your clothing rotation into 2022…

So Sexy™ Basic Turtleneck $39.50

Summertime has its white tee. This is the winter version. Thick enough to wear on its own without fear of show-through, but light enough for easy layering under sweaters and jackets. A touch of spandex ensures it will bounce back for years to come. You’ll wonder how you did without it all this time.

 

So Sexy™ Square Neck Top $39.50

Normcore, Minimalism, Neutral Palettes…however each season redefines it, the color combinations that range from the fluffiest beiges to the darkest oak browns are showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, as the runways have shown us with major color pops coming in for S/S 2022, having neutral items to pair with such vibrant hues is even more of a must these days. This rich cocoa colored, square neck top will serve you well as a cooling agent against those candy-colored clothes that are heading our way.

 

So Sexy™ Scoop Neck Top $39.50

Next, let’s move on to another big staple item – the black tee. You’ll want something with a just-right fit that’s body-con enough to work with your sexiest skirt but comfy enough for throwing on with your jeans. This version features a square neck line (universally flattering) and a 3/4 length sleeve (making it versatile enough to wear through all the seasons). Add this one to your wardrobe and it may well be the hardest working piece of clothing you’ll own.

So Sexy™ Shoulder Skimming Top $29.98

Remember what we said about vibrant hues? From New York to London, the fashion runways have spoken – bright, effervescent colors are going to be everywhere in 2022. Move ahead of the curve and stock yourself with this chic and sleek apple green top. The boat neckline allows you to control how much shoulder you’d like to share, and with an 8% spandex weave allowing for a more comfortable bodycon look, this top will take you from daytime office to date night ready effortlessly.

High Waisted Leggings $79.50

And of course, when you are talking staple pieces, you simply cannot forget the quintessential legging. This high waisted, just-right-tight version from Boston Proper is made from 4-way stretch and a 20% spandex fabric mix which combined will ensure these leggings will keep their shape without pilling, pulling or unexpected shrinking. As a staple piece goes, this one is a truly great option.

So that’s our list! We hope you found something you love, but if not – don’t worry. Boston Proper has literally hundreds of items, with new ones coming in all the time. Have a look for yourself and don’t forget that fantastic offer of  $25 OFF purchase of $125 or more till 12/31! Just use the CODE: SHOPBP25
