Oh, the Joys of Cool-Weather Comfort Fabrics!
Mariah’s classic Christmas song is back on repeat. So 'tis the season once again for at-home comfort and coziness. And what do you wear for that? Loungewear, of course! If last year was all about Sherpa, for this year’s hibernation season waffle knit athleisure is everywhere, since it checks all the warm and cozy boxes!
Traditionally used for sports clothing, and, forever, in the making of cold-weather underwear, this thermal fabric is woven in small, square grids that are super breathable and absorbent to help create your perfect winter moments. Right now we’re seeing it reappear in many fashion collections, at all price points. Great for all those après-ski vibes without all the fuss!
The New Set
Made from a soft cotton blend, waffle knit joggers offer the ultimate lounge look but are still cute enough to wear for the commute to the gym or as you hop on a bicoastal flight for the holidays. Spotted! Plus, you’ll be thankful to have a nice pair of stretch pants to change into post-workout clothes and not trek back home into your old sweatpants. Right?
Paired with a cropped relaxed zip front hoodie, you’ll look smashing in your new pants. Our Foxy Jeans waffle knit joggers are designed with tons of cozy features, like a thick elastic waistband that allows room to stretch, a tapered leg style that's super flattering, and side pockets deep enough to fit your smartphone — yes, even those really big ones. Just add some cool sock sneakers, a logo waist bag, and you’re ready to rock the town with your friends.
Not only is waffle knit fabric light and drapeable on the body, it can also be worn in transitional weather and easily dressed up or down. If you’re all about casual comfort, even for work, waffle knit pieces like tops and short dresses, made from a smart blend of cotton and polyester, will quickly become your ideal layering pieces that adapt to varying temperatures. If your apartment tends to run hot, a short-sleeve waffle knit jersey dress is the perfect companion to leggings. Foxy Jeans dresses are ultra-soft and can double as a long tunic.
Going out for a run in sub-zero conditions? A Henley shirt (which is essentially a collarless polo) worn under a velour hoodie and topped off with a waterproof shell, will wick away sweat to keep you warm and dry, no matter what falls from the sky.
And if it’s Santa loaded with gifts, hurry home and head to bed!
