When it comes to quarantine style, comfort is key like never before. But you also don’t want to feel like you’ve let yourself go completely just because it feels like most of the world has shut down.
What we’re trying to say is that a pair of ragged old sweats or pajama bottoms isn’t going to help your quarantine cause, especially when you can up your game with a few simple clicks.
Here are some of our favourite Canadian loungewear brands to elevate your stay-at-home style as we ride out COVID-19.
October’s Very Own (OVO)
Drake’s beloved lifestyle brand, October’s Very Own (OVO) includes a clothing line full of casual staples like t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and hoodies that are perfect for isolating in style – even if your reality isn’t quite Drake’s new mansion. The relaxed pieces feature bold screen prints and patches with the OVO lettering. OVO has collaborated with popular names like Canada Goose, Timberland, Roots, and Jordan.
Province of Canada
Homegrown loungewear brandProvince of Canada is designed for the Canadian homebody – so, basically, most of us right now and for the foreseeable future. Made completely in our home and native land, the brand offers cozy and quality sweats, t-shirts, crewneck sweaters, leggings, and rugby dresses – many proudly displaying their Canadian roots.
Premium athletic wear company Reigning Champ offers elevated staples. The Canadian label is based in Vancouver and creates quality sweaters, hoodies, t-shirts, and sweatpants for sport (in better times), lounging, and working from home. Most items are classic in design and simple in colour, making them timeless weekend pieces once the days of social isolation are behind us.
For sweatpants that can only be described as game changing at first wear in the comfort department, treat yourself or the leading lady in your life to a pair of coveted Lazypants sweatpants. The celeb favourite ladies’ sweatpants are adorned with the brand’s signature three birds and available in a wide array of colours and prints – from bold and colourful, to pastel and muted.
Based in Toronto, Peace Collective lifestyle brand is known for their popular “Home is Toronto” and “Toronto Vs. Everybody” apparel. As part of their business model, every garment sold from the pride-forward weekend wear brand provides five school meals to a child in need. In response to COVID-19, Peace Collective has partnered with Budweiser Canada to release a new collection to benefit the Canadian Red Cross. Additionally, the company now sells reusable protective masks.
