While we have been relegated to our couches during the pandemic, stylish loungewear options have skyrocketed in popularity. Ratty band T-shirts and stained sweats have made way for innovation in clothing cute enough to see the light of day for coffee runs.

NYC-based label Monse marries athleisure and high fashion with their Spring 2021 collection. Styled on model Indira Scott and an adorable Animal Crossing collab courtesy of @crossingtherunway, the collection combines sporty sweat sets with drapey, asymmetrical dresses.

Chunky sneakers are the common thread between each look, bringing a silky marigold slip dress back down to earth and elevating knitwear and biker shorts. Ribbon details stream from several of the pieces like aerial silks, lending dramatic flair to simple shapes. A standout look styles Scott in a wispy black tulle skirt and cropped sweatshirt, blurring the line between loungewear and streetwear.

In the accompanying Instagram video, Scott flaunts each piece in to an invigorating beat reminiscent of a sports theme. Scott's skillful posing animates the warehouse-like set, her long braids an extension of her lithe figure. Buoyant and fresh, Monse's collection makes ready-to-wear pieces ideal for the on-the-go wearer.
