There are lots of reasons to love Universal Standard, but four of their pieces fit beautifully into the sleepwear/loungewear category, and are my favorites. You can read more about Universal Standard here.
Take a look! You may have to get your very own set too.
What Are These Pieces?
Lots of us have a nice selection of work wear, but we shortchange ourselves when it comes to beautiful, comfy things to wear around the house. I know. Your dog doesn’t care what you wear. But, what if you could look fantastic in clothes that feel as comfortable as your pajamas?
I’m happy to tell you that you can!
I’m excited about these pieces, and I think you will be too! All four are from Universal Standard. Three of them are in their Lounge Kit. This set offers:
- Mariah Cold Shoulder Knit Top. You can pick out your own Mariah here.
- Billie Wrap Top. You can pick out your own Billie here.
- Hathaway Jersey Jogger Pants. You can pick out your own Joggers here
The pants are available in black or gray. The tops are available in black, gray or pink.
Currently the three piece set is selling for $100.
The fourth piece is the Meko Nightie. Choose your own Meko here.
Why You Need These Pieces
So what’s the big deal about these pieces and why do you need them? If you read my article, Plus Size Sleepwear-It’s The New Outerwear, I told you about how the lines are blurring and clothing that was once only considered sleepwear or stay-at-home loungewear is now being styled for outerwear. You can read it here.
What the Heck Does That Mean?
Women are taking pieces that were originally marketed as pajamas or loungewear, and they’re putting them together with other pieces of their wardrobe, and going everywhere in them. Shopping, work, church, you name it. These pieces are not just for staying on the couch or going to bed anymore!
What’s the Big Deal with These Four Pieces?
- The fit is fabulous
- As long as you compare your measurements to their size chart and order the right size, these pieces are going to fit you perfectly. If you haven’t measured yourself in a while, you may want to do that before ordering
- They feel wonderful on
- the Mariah Cold Shoulder Knit Top and the Billy Wrap Top are made of some of the softest knit that I have ever felt. they’re wonderful to touch and wonderful to wear.
- They should be. They’re made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester
- The Joggers are made of 47% Pima cotton, 47% Modal, 6% Elastane
3. You’re going to feel gorgeous in them. Who could ask for more?
That’s Only Three. Where’s the Fourth?
Number four on my list is the Meko Nightie.
At the time of this writing, there’s lots of snow on the ground here in Virginia. And, I didn’t order mine to sleep in, although I might when it warms up again.
How I Style These Pieces
Billie Wrap Top
I made a modification to my Bille Wrap Top. I love the way it looks on the model. I also thought it would make a cute little top over the Mariah Cold Shoulder Knit Top and a couple of other things I already own. There was a problem thought. I’ve never like myself in wrap “anything!”
No problem. I just tied it in front, without wrapping, and cut off the excess ends. If you decide to do this, leave more than you think you’ll want. You can always shorten it more. If you want to neaten the cut edges, just turn them inside and take a few stitches. Since it’s a knit fabric, you can probably get away with doing nothing more.
I pull mine Meko Nightie on with a pair of leggings. Then, I add a short tunic top over it all. Yes, I know what Will Stanton says about tunics in The Land of the Lost.
I don’t care…I think I’m a little too old to walk around with my rear end hanging out, so Meko gives me the look I want. You might like it that way too.
You could also put a top under Meko and add leggings, pants, or a skirt. Each way would look adorable. Choose your own Meko here.
A third option would be with a top either over or under Meko, or maybe a cute little sweater, and a knock-out pair of heels and some wonderful jewelry. You have a great outfit for a night at the club, or maybe a special night in!
If your goal is to create a great-looking wardrobe that is comfortable throughout the day, take a look at these four pieces being offered by Universal Standard. You can shop Universal Standard here.
