Derek Rose Loungewear - Michael 84 Fashion Blog

When do PJ’s or pyjamas become loungewear or nightwear? It’s probably when you reach get into your twenties, and then once in your thirties, you really should be embracing the comfort and luxury of some really fine clothing to wear for bed, or even when you’re just lounging around (hence the name).

Quite a while back I got some really high end loungewear, I think it’s been on the blog before but I’ve never really written a proper blog post about it. Since we’re in Winter and it’s been cold, it’s probably a good time to feature it on the blog. It’s from Derek Rose, and it’s something which I really love to wear. Now, these are not traditional PJs or “Formal nightwear” as it’s called because it’s posh, this is more for relaxing. I associate the more traditional PJ style with two age groups; Really little kids, or really old men. In our 20’s and 30’s and even 40’s, where does that leave us? With loungewear.

Plain Style, Soft Feel

My idea of the perfect item of clothing to wear either chilling out or in fact going to bed are a pair of either soft cotton trousers or shorts, and if it’s cold, which it usually is, the same in a T-shirt. This is Derek Rose’s Basel fabric, which is incredibly soft to touch, and is the right balance of being fitted with an element of a relaxed fit. It’s made of micro modal with a touch of elastane which gives it just a little bit of stretch and makes the fit perfect.

I got a round neck T Shirt and some loungewear trousers which are in a deep red colour which they call Bordeaux. The trousers have a nice opening at the bottom which I prefer to it being cuffed, you get more of a sense of freedom around the ankles, and they come with two side pockets and a back pocket, so plenty of room to keep a phone which is pretty essential these day when you are relaxing.

They are quite expensive, with the trousers coming in at £95 (here) and the T-shirt coming in at £69 (here), but I think as a one-off luxury purchase as a treat, it’s a good buy. I have actually worn the T-shirt as a regular tee during the daytime I like it so much.

What do you think of loungewear? Do you have any favourite brands?
