11 Cute sweater-and-short sets to lounge in all day, every day

Just when we thought the pandemic is under control in Malaysia, the recent spike in COVID-19 cases have led to the second implementation of CMCO. Unlike the first round back in March, our stay-at-home “handbook”—from a bag-cleaning guide to a self-care action plan to a list of new shows to watch—will let you fill up your next two weeks with ease. And for those of you who are looking to do some mid-month retail therapy, we’ve found a CMCO-appropriate trend you can chill in now and wear out later—sweater sets.

As people are spending more and more time at home, loungewear has seen an impressive rise in popularity over the past few months, and the sweater-and-shorts co-ords, in particular, are cosy yet tropical weather-friendly—what’s not to like? The best part? They look equally cute at home or on the streets, regardless of whether you’re pairing them with ankle-high socks, a pair of velcro sandals or thong heels when you’re out to grab a quick lunch. Some of our top picks below include cult-favourite brand Pangaia that’s known for its sustainable and ethical ethos; homegrown label Motherchuckers that was established by local It-girl Jane Chuck; gender-neutral brand Les Girls Les Boys; and celebrity-favourite LIVINCOOL.
