Most of us have probably been living in loungewear more than ever these days. Once the summer months make an appearance in Arizona, I ditch the jeans and gravitate towards more loose and breathable fabrics. Linen and soft cottons are my fabrics of choice. Long dresses and wide leg pants with elastic waists, and loose tanks and bra tops are what I reach for. I rounded up a few of my favorite ethical loungewear companies in today’s latest IGTV video. If you haven’t seen it yet, click the video below to see a few outfits I have had on rotation these days.&nbs

After I had Oliver, I received a very kind care package from the team at Storq. Their company was new to me and I was completely blown away by their kindness and the quality of their loungewear, plus they’re ethically made in the US. Although their items are primarily aimed at pregnant women and nursing mothers, I reach for their 3-piece set at least once a week. I have the set in sand and its so comfy. I also love just throwing the kimono over and easy dress some days.
There is something so important about being comfortable, but feeling pulled together. Odd Bird has somehow managed to do both with their handwoven robes and loungewear. We’ve been living in these ethically made pieces for the past 3+ weeks now and we have absolutely no regrets about it. Huge plus when your threads match your home decor and we’ve definitely hit the mark. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for a matching baby sized robe for Oliver.
The bra and undies set featured in my styling video is from Arq. I have grown to be obsessed with their comfy bras and tanks, plus they have baby and youth sizes too! They make everything here in the US and are very conscious on the environmental impact fashion has. I love their transparency and how they celebrate women’s bodies in all shapes and sizes. Ollie has been wearing their tanks and onesies so often lately, especially with temperatures already in the 100s here. (Above is Arq’s leopard high rise undies and cotton tank. Ollie has the cotton onesie on.)
There are so many things I love about Ozma of California. Their philosophy is all about living with less and their pieces are so easy to mix and match. They aren’t really a loungewear company, as their pieces are so beautiful to wear indoors or out, but I couldn’t leave them off this list. Their wide leg pants have become a favorite…so much so, I have them in three colors. They are a bit on the higher end price wise, but all of their items are so versatile and believe me, you will definitely wear them again and again. I’ve also been loving their bandanas wrapped in my hair. You can use code NEWDARLINGS15 for 15% off.
Sister Katie is a brand out of San Fransisco with a focus on easy living. I was immediately drawn to their classic silhouettes and organic cotton sets. I love the Everyday shirt with matching Puglia pants, or to wear the shirt oversized as a dress. You could wear it to bed and then the next day too…its that comfortable.
