Relaxed at Home but make it Stylish!
Quarantine life has brought out a different side to fashionistas. We are taking virtual meetings in our pajamas and most likely can’t remember the last time we felt the actual need to get dressed up. The current pandemic has made us less excited to wear our wardrobe best. Safety guidelines and restrictions are keeping us inside more than ever and the urge to be elaborate with our looks is no longer there. A little inspiration can go a long way, however. This style guide is for the professionals still working remotely from home and the social butterflies who periodically host intimate gatherings at their abodes. We are sharing some ‘Relaxed at Home’ must-haves to get your head in the game.
Be Chic & Cozy
One of the main concerns when dressing up to stay indoors is making sure they’re comfortable. I mean, how exhausting would it be wearing an extremely fitted dress and high inch heels in our own homes daily? This is why many are opting for sweats and oversized crew necks every day to get their jobs done but let’s say goodbye to those. Striking a balance is important. It’s quite easy to find really chic comfort wear but only if you’re looking.
Knit textured pieces make up incredible loungewear. They are also on-trend so it’s a guaranteed fashion pick. The soft material not only feels good to put on but it also keeps you warm. When slipping into knitted garments to wear at home, go for a casual co-ord or a dress. That way, your entire outfit is loose and chill. Whether it’s a chunky midi or a thin flare pants set, you should certainly have knits on your radar.
The perfect jumpsuit is also a great option to remain relaxed but fashion forward. Jumpsuits can go for any occasion and that’s what we love about it. It the ideal easy to wear attire that meets you in the middle. Looking for something cute to wear during your next conference call? Go for a jumpsuit. Even if you’re celebrating a quarantine birthday coming up, you can party in style wearing one! Select them in fabrics like satin, silk or a stretchy jersey. You can also get major style vibes from boiler, cargo, and utility suits.
Wear Your Tops & Frocks
Sometimes, putting together an entire outfit just to stay in the house can be a lot. Especially if you’re always doing virtual meetings and the only thing others can see is what you have on from the chest up. Setting your focus on tops and dresses is absolutely okay, some days. To those still seeking comfort, your tops can include lightweight blouses and ribbed jumpers. You can also trade in your blazers and bulky coats for cardigans. Dresses are the versatile and practical pieces. Think of how The Island’s Kloset’s ‘Calla Knit Wrap Dress’ can take you from answering emails in your home office to the Galentine’s dinner you may be hosting later that evening in your dining room. Lastly, we encourage you to have fun with your shirts and shifts! A statement top or dress with bold colors, sleeves, collars or patterns will have everyone talking about your look and that’s just one piece.
Don’t forget to Accessorize
When styling to sit at home, you may forget to incorporate accessories. However, a look isn’t a look without them. Of Course items like sunglasses and handbags aren’t needed, but you can own them in other areas. Dress up your outfit with a pair of eye-catching earrings, dashing necklaces, or some stacked rings. You can even rock a headband or glamorous hair slides. Also, don’t underestimate the power of a nice comfy shoe selection.
