Loungewear Gets Sexy

We say loungewear, you say…

comfy? Lazy? Sunday spent at home?

What you probably don’t say is “latest celeb fashion trend.”

However since back in 2012, celebrities have been bucking the trend and bringing the indoors outdoors, making pyjamas and loungewear a legitimate fashion statement.

Of course, only certain brands, styles and patterns make it to the “acceptable outside” list, and obviously we stock them all here at UtilityBear.com!

Lounge Pants

Miranda-Kerr-Lounge-wear

Miranda Kerr is just one of many celebs making a statement in comfy pants – from the quirky patterns to travel long haul to the sports/yoga style for a morning at the park with the kiddies; these cool bottoms are no longer confined to days spent house cleaning or hungover-at-home.

And with some tailored cuts and cute styles from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and their Iconic Cotton Long Pant, we’re glad this moment has come because it would simply be a waste if no one saw them!

Joggers

 

Rihanna-Joggers-Style-Sexy

And not of the “sweaty running” variety. No, stars such as Rihanna have been rocking the jogger look in recent years. Sometimes it’s a simple tee or hoodie combo to get to the gym or rehearsals, but more impressive is their integration into urban night-time style.

You could team these Jockey Off-White Melange Jogger Pants with a satin bomber jacket and high heeled boots for a new take on the utility sports luxe trends.

Yoga Pants

Jessica-Alba-Yoga-Pants

Ah, the humble yoga pant. No longer confined to the mirrored dance studio or gym-selfie, celebrities like Jessica Alba are regularly papped in a yoga pant ensemble, giving them that just-about-to-work-out look so popular among modern students and mums alike.

And what’s not to love about these Tommy Hilfiger Fitness Cropped Leggings? A stretchy tencel fabric blend for a supportive, stretchy fit and a beautiful navy for all seasons.

Sexy Pyjamas

Rosie-Huntington-Whitely-Loungewear

Pajamas/Pyjamas/PJs/Jim Jams… call them what you like, but they have never really entered the real of fashion, despite many designer catwalk and celebrity attempts to make it so. But step in the new era of pyjamas – the slinky, designed pyjama pant, a la Rosie Huntington Whitely.

Calvin-Klein-Seductive-Lace-Pant

To achieve this look yourself Calvin Klein have brought out a beautiful set this season, with loungewear top to match. The Seductive Comfort Lace Trim pant will make you feel as comfy as home when you’re out and about (and looking chic while you do it!)

Hooray for Hoodies

Alessandro-Ambrosio-Hoody

Hoodies used to be a symbol of teenage rebellion (so much so they were almost banned from retail stores and public places back in the noughties!) But now, celerities are rocking oversized sweaters and hoodies as the acceptable “off day” get up to hid your sins and give your body  a Sunday break from being pushed in, pushed up and taped on a Saturday night!

Alessandra Ambrosio perfectly captures the trend and the trick, it seems, is to purposely buy a man’s oversized jacket/jumper to give the best effect. Look no further than our Tommy Hilfiger Cotton Blend Hoodie for the ultimate comfort and cut!

6 Ways To Treat Yourself This Mother’s Day at Utility Bear

6-ways-to-treat-yourself-this-mothers-day-at-utility-bear

Oprah calls it the toughest job in the world.

Have you ever watched a Mama bear try to control a group of cubs?

So we agree with Oprah.

Whether you’re a stay-at-home-keep-the-machine-running kind of Mom or a career-woman-juggling-everything kinda Mum, gone are the days when you had to wait for someone to buy you something nice to say thanks for all that you do.

Sure you might get to sleep a little longer, perhaps be treated to a (possibly burnt/cold/questionable ingredients) breakfast in bed and you may even receive some flowers or a cute crayon-covered card…

But you’ve worked hard all year and you deserve something special. These days we recommend treating yourself!

Sunday is “the day of rest.” Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday.

Coincidence? We think not!

There’s nothing better on a day of relaxation at home than the best fitting, most comfortable loungewear you can find.

And the Iconic Tommy Hilfiger Long Pant (RRP £32.00) remains one of the best out there.

Made from high quality stretch cotton for superior fit and comfort, the branded elastic waistband and Tommy Hilfiger flag logo at the hip will remind you that you are, in fact, worth it.

 

 

Lingerie…

So Valentine’s Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the special lingerie should be resigned to the back of the drawer until next February! Whether you’re in the mood for romance or not, sometimes donning a specially crafted piece of luxury can just give you that extra spring in your step for the day.

Fantasie’s “Penelope” underwired bra in purple haze (RRP £34.00) has a modern Geo floral print in sophisticated dewy shades, complimented with delicate embroidery trims.

You’ll feel pretty special underneath even if you get covered in baby milk!

Bags…

Often motherhood doesn’t allow time for special lady bears to be whisked away on romantic breaks or jet-set sunshine travels, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan for the next big adventure by investing in a beautiful bag.

The British Bag Company is a brand booming worldwide, with a reputation for high quality craftsmanship, design and traditional materials.

Own something worth travelling in with a Waxed Canvas Holdall (RRP £64.99) and drop some hints to the grizzly other half!
