The Covered Perfectly Leisure Suit

Last year I did a review of the Covered Perfectly MicroModal Tops and I was thrilled that they reached out to me again to do another review of one of their products.  I had my choice from their complete collection HERE to choose from.  I chose the Leisure Suit because I thought it would fit well with my casual lifestyle;  and boy am I happy I did because I've been living in this suit ever since I received it a week ago.

The Covered Perfectly Leisure Suit is perfect for relaxing around the house, sleeping, running errands and it can even be dressed up for other purposes as you will see at the end of my post.


The top has 3/4 length sleeves, a crew neckline, and an asymmetrical hemline.  The bottom is capri length and has a elastic waist.  The material is 94% micromodal and 6% spandex, and is so soft and comfortable. 


Now that you know more about the leisure suit, I'd like to show you three fun ways I wore it.  First I wore it for what it is meant for:  Leisure!  I have worn this suit every evening as I watch t.v., or work around the house; and I also wore it to bed.  It is so cozy and comfortable.


When I lounge around the house, comfort is so important to me.  I liked the flexibility of this fabric:   it is form fitting, but not clingy.   I also like the thinner material, because I don't get over-heated like I do with most fitness or leisure wear.


I also feel the suit is very flattering.  The pants have a wider cut so they hang around the leg area a little looser.  The top is form fitting on the top, but not tight, and looser at the waist line:  so no tummy bulge!


 Being able to wear my leisure suit at home was a no-brainer, but I also wanted to see if I could style it to wear outside the house.  The first look I came up with I call my "Errand Running Look".  This is a look I would wear if I needed to make a quick run to the grocery store or other errands.


For this look, I just added black sneakers, a utility jacket, and a scarf.  Isn't it cute?  You would never know I just went shopping with the same clothes I slept in! :)



 My next look is more dressed up.  This would be a perfect look for travel because its so comfortable, yet so stylish.  In fact, I think I will wear this outfit when I head to Chicago to see my children for Thanksgiving.

I created this look by adding over-the-knee socks, tall boots, a long burgundy cardigan, and then I accessorized with a long pendant necklace, hat, and leopard print bag.



The long cardigan covers my butt,  which is a must whenever you wear anything other than real pants.


Because the capri length was not long enough to cover the exposed part of my leg, I simply grabbed a pair of over-the-knee socks and tucked the pants into the socks.  If you have a pair of over-the-knee boots that would work too.


I am so happy with my leisure suit, it fits my casual lifestyle perfectly so I know I will get a lot of use out of it.

It comes in two other colors, blush and heather grey and if your interested in purchasing it, you can find it HERE!

  3. That's so smart of you to make this suit so versatile. I still get caught in the rut of only wearing certain items for certain events---although I'm trying hard to make items more versatile.
    I love how you added the longer socks to cover up the capris!!

  4. I have been out of the loop for so long. Just now catching up on my blog reading over lunch. Love the varied ways you styled this great piece. When I read leisure suit, I remembered the double knit suits my mom would MAKE for my dad, complete with white or contrasting top-stitching. Ha! Boy, has the leisure evolved since the 60s. Such a versatile piece.

    1. How funny! I actually remember those old suits too. I just called it a "Leisure Suit" because that's what the company calls it. Active Wear or Lounge Wear might be a better category name.

  5. Haha! I so need this leisure suit, it would fit my lifestyle perfectly!!!! And, oh my goodness... it looks completely different in both of the looks that you dressed up. I love the scarf and military jacket, but the burgundy cardi and hat look great with it, too!

    1. Yes, black can be hard if you have pets. I have a cat, and his hair did show on the suit. But I thought black was the most versatile and the other colors were too pajamaish for my taste. I did hear a rumor that they were coming out with more colors though...hope it's true!

  12. Oh yes indeed! I love when we can combine comfort with cute. And now I'd love to go sit on my couch and watch something myself. :) I like all three ways, but style 2 is my favorite.
