cosy clothes to wear in the comfort of your home
For pretty much everyone now, it’s been long enough since we’ve had to adapt to a stay-at-home situation where the only excitement of the day comes in our stroll to the supermarket and the new film we’ll be watching tonight. Even though we don’t need to dress up to go to work or show off in front of mums bringing their children to school anymore, it’s not ok for our mental wellbeing to stay in pyjamas or sweatpants the whole day.
Just like your daily beauty or exercising routine, putting some nice and comfortable clothes on in the morning is a much needed ritual in these bizarre times. Keeping a sartorial structure while working from home will see you go through the confinement in a focused and positive way, ready to come back to the office with new summer staples and a bit more relaxed, too. And you still have the weekend to lounge in your cosy one piece and stay in bed until midday. Here we give you some outfit ideas to continue playing with your looks and prioritise comfort over effort.
If you’re in a lazy mood and will spend your time between the bedroom and the living, find luxurious loungewear that still looks nice and put together. Cotton track pants are the kind you can wear around the house without feeling guilty and make the perfect relaxed combination when paired with a long cashmere cardigan. Add a silk camisole with lace trims and a pair of nude slippers for a cosy yet stylish look.
For an active day made of a walk in the park and a drink with your friends over Facetime, wear your favourite pair of jeans with lots of stretch and a feminine floral blouse to welcome spring and the blooming nature. Accessory-wise, opt for sporty white sneakers and a cascade of silver necklaces that will bring some sparkle to your outfit.
It is now the best moment to sport this slip dress you’ve bought last year and were never confident enough to wear outside the bedroom. If you haven’t got yours yet, choose this satin dress in a soft coral shade and layer a wool jumper over it to keep you warm and cosy. Wearing the right underwear will also make you feel more beautiful and self-confident so play by matching your bra with the colour of your dress. Slide into a pair of velvet ballerinas for that extra sophistication and effortlessness.
Luxurious fabrics and neutral colours are key to your home outfit to feel good and relaxed. Wear a simple bamboo tee with wide leg, flowy trousers that follows your every movement. Just add a linen blazer when you need to have a video call with your work colleagues and look professional without overdoing it. Put on raffia slides to walk around the house and step outside in your sunny garden.
Now if you really want to spend the whole day inyour PJs on a Sunday, layer a colourful silk robe over a peach sleep setand tie it around your waist. This kimono-inspired robe can also be worn overjeans so it’s a versatile piece worth investing in. A pair of leather slipperswill add a chic finishing touch to this dreamy look.
