6 Black-Owned Loungewear Brands to Cozy up in

We’ve all been forced to slow down through these past couple of months because of quarantine. Not only is the fashion world suffering as retail operators, manufactures and stores have since been actively shut down, but consumers have been fed up with Black creatives having their creations utilized by major brands with little to no credit. Yet, one particular branch of fashion has managed to blossom in this all: loungewear. It’s an amazing assortment of clothing that seamlessly combines comfort and style for Zoom conferences and classes or simply lounging around. So, in times of buying Black and social distancing, here are some six Black-owned brands of the new loungewear trend.

It is affordable and aimed at representing strong working, independent women of all age groups and physiques. The brand stands in favor of women empowerment and drives a platform of making women feel confident in their style. Most notably, the brand has been in works with popular New-York streetwear brand FUBU.
