We’ve made it well past the year mark since most governments across the globe put country-wide lockdowns in place. In doing so, they inadvertently caused a boom in sweatpants.

Loungewear has reigned supreme for the past 18 months. Hoodies have become appropriate attire for boardroom meetings and it feels like an eternity since we were dressed in any other material but jersey.

But as we sweat it out in peak summer, the need for lightweight at-home gear remains ever-essential.

Furry slippers should be swapped out for sandals or slides. Linen and silk should be well-cemented in the wardrobe. Quality T-shirts are even more essential for everyday use. You get the idea and we've enlisted the likes of Fendi, Story MFG, and Casablanca to help make the summer loungewear switch.

Scroll for cool summer loungewear.

Fendi does basketball, and specifically, a basketball jersey tank top. With a 23 on the back as a nod to the house's founding year, the tank is made from panels of lightweight mesh for super breathability. You won't want to sweat in this one, nor will you.

If you're not the tank type, then a solid tee is the obvious nucleus of your summer loungewear look. Brazil's king of the beach, Havaianas, recently teamed up with California artist Joshua Vides for a capsule brimming with seaside influence.
