After a year spent in sweats, linen loungewear comes as a refreshing and welcomed addition to my wardrobe. Cozy clothes became the official 2020 wardrobe, and brands have steadily stepped up their games, making leisurewear luxe. The new Parachute linen loungewear line continues that trend.
The line comprises six separates that can be mixed and matched for sleeping, lounging, and even walking the dog, IMO. Each piece comes in three earthy tones: bone, a beigey off-white; clay, a dusty neutral pink; and coal, a deep gray. The colors make gorgeous monochromatic looks but are also neutrals in their own right. They’re made of 100 percent European flax that’s incredibly soft and breathable. If you’re familiar with Parachute’s linen sheets, these feel like that, only with slightly heavier linen to help them drape.
These pieces feel amazing on, but note that because they’re linen, they’re not exactly stretchy. Be sure to check the size guide and take your measurements for an accurate fit. The lightweight fabric makes them a teensy bit see-through so the items are best paired with nude undergarments. And because they’re linen, they will get wrinkled very fast, but keep that in mind that “lived-in” leisurewear works in 2021.
My first thought when I saw these pieces was “I hope they’re machine washable!” Luckily, they are. Because drycleaning loungewear is where I draw the line. Just machine wash them in cool water using a mild, liquid detergent and tumble dry them on low with wool dryer balls ($10).

This robe is the quintessential summer robe, keeping you covered without being too hot. It’s great for bedtime, but I can totally see myself also wearing this robe paired with the linen pants and a cute kitten heel at a resort. Just keep in mind if you get the robe in bone, you might not wanna pair it with a bone top and bottoms (Think: That episode of Schitt’s Creek when Alexis almost joins a cult, IYKYK).
