Years of comfortable dressing after – think activewear, athleisure, etc. – — It seems that the fashion crowd is starting to prefer to wear formal clothes instead of down jackets. The feminine aesthetic was elevated with the help of Bottega Veneta’s voluminous midi skirts, Khaite’s waist-cinching silhouettes, and sweet footwear like Mary Janes and ballet flats. This season, however, we’ve seen the same streetwear ensembles return in a carefree fashion mode—where wardrobe staples shine, and chic comfort is on top. At the recent London Fashion Week, the catwalks were all in comfortable sportswear, such as coat shirts and trousers, denim midi skirts and tank tops. Plus, when it comes to comfy yet chic street style, no one does it better than Hailey Bieber. Her collection of oversized coats, baggy jeans and sleek sneakers may be pared back, but it’s anything but boring.
The allure of cozy dressing should come as no surprise, considering that off-trends (as we like to call them) have not only dominated our wardrobes this season. It’s also an especially easy fashion formula to replicate, since you probably already have a few of these pieces stashed in your drawer. In our opinion, nothing says casual cool like jeans and a T-shirt—these street style stars know how to elevate their essentials, whether layering them with a transitional trench coat or slipping on luxe loafers. There are even items that are traditionally good for lounging, like basic black leggings that have been transformed to sit in the front row.
