How to pick a loungewear that matches your personality
We all have different personalities, but according to The Enneagram Institute, there are nine different personality types. Each personality type has its own unique characteristics, and we want to help you pick a hoodie or a sweatsuit that matches your personality.
It can be hard trying to define your own sense of style, so it might be an easier place to start with figuring out what personality type you are. From there, you can pick loungewear that matches that personality much easier.
1. The Reformer
The Reformer is said to be rational and idealistic. You are a perfectionist, and you like to look the part. For this personality type, we would recommend something a little more sophisticated and put together. You are intentional about every garment and piece of jewelry that you put on your body, so try not to overthink it. Sometimes less is more, especially when you are riding the line of comfort and chic.
Try being bold with your color choices, but make sure it looks intentional. Finding the right balance is the key for The Reformer. If you go with something too loud, your personality gets overwhelmed. Too understated and you feel like something is off.
2. The Helper
If you identify with The Helper, then you are caring and interpersonal. You are very generous and a people pleaser, so you can be a little more laid back and easy going when it comes to your loungewear. Matching sets are your favorite, that way you do not have to think too hard about what you are wearing. Whether it is a sweatsuit or a matching hoodie and pants, you love monochrome and simplicity.
Luckily for you, matching sets are very common among all major brands right now, so you have your pick. Go for something soft to emphasize your soft and welcoming personality. The extra fuzzy, the better.
3. The Achiever
As The Achiever, you are success-oriented and pragmatic. You are very image-conscious and driven, so you are probably the most put together out of anyone on this list. You know that people are watching, so you give them a show. You know that hoodies are much more than just loungewear, so you make them high fashion. The Achiever goes for a luxe hoodie from their favorite fashion house, maybe Gucci or Louis Vuitton. The hoodie pairs nicely with some chunky sunglasses, slicked back hair, stilettos, and a neutral trouser.
The Achiever has great taste when it comes to layers and putting outfits together. Always think about lines throughout your outfit to make sure things are blending the way you want them to.
4. The Individualist
The Individualist is sensitive and withdrawn. You are expressive, as is your clothing. You are not afraid to take risks and go for something that other people would not ever think of. After all, you are The Individualist. There is no one quite like you. We certainly are not able to tell you who you are or what to wear, but be sure to embrace the best parts of yourself and express them through your hoodie or sweat suit. We love seeing The Individualists in colors that match their energy.
5. The Investigator
If you are The Investigator, you are intense and cerebral. You tend to be perceptive and innovative, which is a hard balance when it comes to clothing. You want to try new things, but you know what everyone else will think. Try and get out of your head when it comes to loungewear. Do not think too hard or else you will psych yourself out. Put on the clothes that feel right in the moment. You might want a hoodie that will match your intensity, or you might want one that will subdue it. Either way, do not try to push something that does not feel right.
6. The Loyalist
As The Loyalist, you are committed and security-oriented. You are engaging and responsible, so you are less likely to take risks, and that’s okay. When you think of loungewear, you think of running errands or doing chores around this house. For this, you are all about function. Depending on the weather, go for a lightweight cropped hoodie with a pair of matching leggings. Lululemon is great for this, but you can find this style at pretty much any store. You want your clothing to be as dependable as you are, and that means finding loungewear that is made to last.
7. The Enthusiast
The Enthusiast is the busy, fun-loving type. You can be spontaneous and scattered, so your clothes are often put together at the last minute. This is what makes your outfits so great – you are not trying too hard. By grabbing the first thing you see or the first thing that makes you happy, you tend to put together outfits that have the same enthusiasm that you do. For this personality, we recommend going for a more abstract loungewear. Play with different prints and textures.
Thrifting is great for The Enthusiast. You are likely environmentally conscious and love all different kinds of vintage styles, so thrifting would be a great option if you are in the market for a new hoodie.
8. The Challenger
If you identify as The Challenger, you are powerful and dominating. You are decisive and confident, and you know what your style is. We know you like loud, vibrant colors, so feel free to incorporate that into your loungewear. Opt for an oversized hoodie in a loud print. You like to stand out in a room, so your clothing should match your energy.
The Challenger is someone that can pull off contrasting prints, so try to find a hoodie and a bottom that you love and see how they look together.
9. The Peacemaker
Finally, The Peacemaker is easygoing and self-effacing. You tend to be agreeable and complacent, so your style tends to ebb and flow with the seasons. Your clothing matches the occasion to a tee and you do not normally try to think outside the box when it comes to what you are wearing. For The Peacemaker, we recommend a comfortable sweatsuit in a neutral color paired with your normal day-to-day jewelry and simple shoes. You are all about comfort and not drawing too much attention to yourself, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Due to the fact that The Peacemaker is so easygoing, you often forget to buy new clothes for yourself. This is your reminder that you deserve comfort, too.
The Bottom Line
No matter what your personality is or how you identify, there is a perfect loungewear out there for you. Each personality brings its own strengths and weaknesses, so embrace yours. Finding the perfect loungewear might not be simple and depends on things like budget, occasion, functionality, and comfort. Whether you are looking for a hoodie to wear while cleaning or a sweatsuit to dawn the red carpet, you can certainly find what you are looking for.
