Local loungewear wins you’ll live in this winter
From trend-setting knits and statement sweats to hot hoodies even the planet loves, Essex boutiques are stocking up on stylish loungewear lines right now. Here's our edit of the pieces to shop, pronto.
Crafted from mohair and merino wool, consider this cute and cosy number your new go-to luxury layer. (Bonus points: it even makes your usual gardening joggers look Zoom-worthy). Now stocked online at Annebelle’s boutique in Colchester, this ‘Lana’ knit won’t hang around long, so add to basket before it sells out.
The Shopkeeper Store
Marrying heart and design, this chic heavy-weight hoodie from Great Dunmow’s Shopkeeper Store is also produced purely from GOTS-certified organic cotton. Which means it – literally – won’t cost the earth. Pair with your jeans/dungas/PJ bottoms for a weekend respin, or channel your inner J-Lo circa 1995 and dig out those velours (we know you know what we’re talking about).
Libby Loves – a brand now stocked online at Lewis Yates in Billericay – does some seriously cool loungewear and this beige knit ‘Polly’ two-piece is ticking all the right boxes for us here at Muddy Stilettos HQ. Oversized? Tick. Neutral but not bland? Tick. HUGE pockets? You better believe it. We’ll be rocking the full look, but you can wear each piece separately to really nail cost-per-wear.
Soft (but not itchy), this Nordic-style knit from Saffron Walden’s most stylish boutique is perfect for a spot of easy fireside fashion this winter. Comprising the season’s key colours (yes, we’re looking at you mustard and beige), it’s the cardi you wish your grandmother had made you way back when.
Calling all athleisure-loving feminists: this exclusive Ramona sweatshirt was literally made for you! Featuring a new custom graphic created to inspire and encourage self-empowerment, it’s a winter win from Chelmsford’s Number Six store as far as we’re concerned.
