Are you currently working from home? Here are 13 loungewear pieces that are both comfy and chic to get you through the next few weeks
Many of us are finding ourselves in unknown waters this week.
With the current crisis, the government has advised the public to work from home wherever possible. We are used to office life and we have the attire perfected. This new reality can be confusing when it comes to dressing.
The easy option is the PJ’s but try whenever you can to resist. When working from home, dressing accordingly can help with productivity levels. One of the best ways to feel constructive yet comfortable is loungewear.
Loungewear is a wondrous mix of sleepwear, knitwear, tracksuits and exercise garments. It’s snug yet quietly chic and is the ideal sartorial option for these uncertain days.
It can be knitwear, a pair of yoga pants or even a roomy dress but the key is comfort. Rules don’t apply when it comes to loungewear but always search for soft materials and easy fits.
Our top picks include the Micha luxe belted midi dress which would be ideal with trainers. While Zoe Jordan’s Galileo knit is both directional and functional.
And for something a little extra we are gravitating towards the Weekday tie-dye sweatshirt and the Upside leggings – light and bright with a touch of happiness which is what we need over the next few weeks.
