Now the word ‘lounging’ can give rise to many a fashion faux pas; think shell suits, velour tracksuits and jelly shoes*. Thankfully, Lounge Lover‘s relaxed, effortless yet sensual approach to design is making it easy to be elegantly laid back this summer.

“Lounge Lover’s philosophy is simply to embrace life in the most relaxed way. Our collections have been designed purely for lounging, relaxing, feeling good and feeling beautiful…Our off-duty luxury is all about enjoying life.” – Sylvie Gabriel, Designer.

Categories into collections for Travel, Lounging and Everyday Essentials, the brand offer simplicity and luxury in each area.  Travelwear is a series of comfortable travel clothes such as the Happy Classic TrouserWithin Loungewear my favourites are the Happy Sweater and Sleeveless Dress.  Finally in the Essentials selection has a lovely Crew Neck Sweater for off duty dressing or even as a luxe base layer.

Wearing: Lounge Lover EterniTee Asymmetric Pants in blue; Whistles white top; Nine West heels and carrying Edina Ronay bag. Thank you to William Williams for the photos.  Lounge Lover currently have a winter sale on, perfect if you want to invest in key pieces for your winter wardrobe.

*I have in the past owned just one of this group of three. You can guess which.

I left LFW yesterday, Blog Reader, having attended the Holly Fulton show at ME London and catching up with the lovely Notting Hill Girl and South Molton Street Style.  It was so interesting being at London Fashion Week rather than New York this season – London has multiple show venues which seems to bring a unique and exciting energy to the proceedings, yet as a result it doesn’t quite feel as polished at the events at the Lincoln Center.  There certainly feels like more individuality on the streets however; a greater display of colour and mixing of trends in attendees in contrast to the uniform sleekness of Manhattan (which, I must say, I love the place for!)

After a few days running around London in heels, seeing both new and established designer collections emerge, meeting some of my favourite blogger friends and arranging other catch-ups then stolen over coffee, I find myself with a few days to relax.  In between fashion week and moving home for a new job I’m all about lounging.  I’ve even hung up my harnesses for a while, Blog Reader :)

This is where sporty sweaters and skinny jeans come in, and a cup of Earl Grey at that.  Here are more of my blogger off duty favourites:

Reiss Lupo Apricot Neon Trim Jumper, 89 GBP

Ash Wedge Trainers, 185 GBP

Lounge Lover Asymmetric Trouser, 119 GBP

Anything by Zoe Karssen….

Paige Denim boyfriend jeans and

Mango basic tees, from 14.99 GBP

With thanks to William Williams for the photos.  ’Normal’ fashion blogger service will resume on Thursday!
