LOUNGEWEAR FROM TKEES – THE BEST MINIMALIST SWEATS

I’ve been wearing TKEES sandals for years now. To be really honest I have about fifteen pairs! So many! There are some in the boot of my car, in my bigger handbags, just in case my shoes are killing me and I need to slip on a comfy simple pair. Not even kidding. I’ve tried almost all of their minimalist, chic flip flop and sandal styles. So when they released loungewear during the early stages of the pandemic, I was all too happy to try them. Cut to now, where I am realising almost all of my loungewear is now from TKEES. They were so good I donated my old loungewear and decided to be ‘that girl with a wardrobe of chic, neutral-toned sweat sets that I can live in at home. Cosy doesn’t even begin to cover it, so here is the full review. Oh and before I get too far, I should also mention that Mario has adopted a bunch of my TKEES loungewear too before I got a chance to shoot those looks. They are truly gender-neutral, wearable and so so cool.

But first, who are TKEES?

ALL ABOUT TKEES

TKEES was co-founded in 2009 by wife and husband duo, Carly and Jesse Burnett. After searching for the perfect barely-there flip flop that was accessible and responsibly produced—they created their own. The now-iconic Lily was launched in five nude shades and set the pace for future collections of timeless wardrobe staples. Today TKEES can be found globally in over 1,000 stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, NET-A-PORTER, Revolve, Shopbop, and more. The designs are all about functionality, dress them up or down, they are made to be wearable. They are also timeless both in design and quality, prioritising quality over quantity, which I love. Having nailed the market gap in footwear (and still growing this category), TKEES launched into clothing, which has since been seen on Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, and Jessica Alba among other celebs. The size-inclusive clothing range has grown and grown, so here is what you need to know.

loungewear update from TKEES

THE FIRST SET I GOT WHICH SAW ME THROUGH LOCKDOWNS

The set I am actually wearing above is no longer available, (I’m sorry!) but it was my first from the collection. I then proceeded to live in it throughout the pandemic, lockdowns and all, feeling very warm and toasty. The quality was perfect and I loved this soft dove grey tone. TKEES do still make dove grey sweatshirts and track pants, so I wanted to share this look all the same. Without feeling sloppy or like a hot mess, I could wear this set and work from home in comfort and style. I didn’t break a sweat by overheating, which is vital in the heat of Perth, but felt just toasty enough.

THE ORIGINAL HOODIE AND THE CORE SHORTS

Ah, the classic hoodie. You have to love them!! Layer under a coat in the depth of winter. Or slip under a blazer for a chic office but casual look. Wear it on its own around the house or out for your morning walks. Cool, classic and ultra cosy. I’ve been excited to wear this hoodie as the weather here cools down with my jeans or over leggings, then keeping warm in it under a coat on those rainy days.

Pictured here I am wearing it with the matching core shorts, which are a lightweight cotton terry that’s been garment-dyed and enzyme washed. They have a sporty feel that hits above the knee with a ribbed elasticized waistband, slight dropped crotch and channelled drawstring for easy styling. To be honest, this cut is cool but I personally prefer the Sport Short, which doesn’t have that dropped crotch. So, these shorts ended up being claimed by Mario. The Core Shorts look so good on him, he now has them in this Toast colour and another burgundy colour too.

THE SPORT SHORT

My favourites, I wear these TKEES sport shorts in black AAAAAAAAll the time. Made with 100% cotton terry they get softer with every wash. Featuring a ribbed elasticized waistband and drawstring for comfort. These come in a few essential colours, but I’m not going to lie, the black ones just go with everything and look awesome. I’d get the cream ones next to round out my collection/ give the black ones a break.

THE U TANK

This may just be my least favourite piece if I’m honest. Though beautifully soft, breezy and cool, the cut of this one is a little off on my body. It’s a good layering piece, so I mostly wear this one under jumpers and knits or hoodies when I need warmth but don’t want bulk or to overheat.

THE SPORT JOGGER AND CREW SWEATSHIRT

Right back to two of my most worn pieces!! I loooove this set, in the latte colour. It’s nude, cosy and very cool. This is the set that I wear outside of the house too. Perfect to wear with a trench coat, sneakers, beanie or cap and scarf. A full rugged up moment that looks cool but feels toasty and warm. The Sport Joggers are a slim fit with a relaxed feel throughout the thighs, our iconic silhouette was reworked with soft brushed cotton fleece. Featuring an elasticized waistband, drawstring and side-seam pockets.

Next on my wish list? The chic brown shade in Cafe and the classic cream. I’d love those sets. So wearable, so cool and very ‘that girl’.

THE PLAYSUIT

Okay, I don’t actually have a picture of myself in this one. I wore it mostly at home during the start of my pregnancy until the bump was too big to fit it. A one and done moment, the playsuit is cute and comfy. Made from mid-weight cotton terry with slight drop crotch, tapered legs, low back, and relaxed fit. Perfect to lounge in and hehe so good during morning sickness and low energy days.

And that is about it. I am loving having this chilled, cosy, minimalist loungewear wardrobe. The neutrals are exactly what I love wearing, they can be worn out of the house matched with my other wardrobe staples. TKEES really nail it with the perfect fabrics, relaxed cuts and wearable neutral colours.
