Thanks to the current pandemic, spending all day in the house has become “the new normal.”
Whether you’re working from home, being productive with new hobbies and jobs you’ve been putting off for ages or simply lounging around, it can be difficult to figure out what to wear at home all day.
Ultimately, you want to feel comfortable. But you want to look cute at the same time, right?
After all, just getting dressed often provides the motivation you need to tackle the day ahead.
If you’re struggling for inspiration, read on for my 10 favourite loungewear ideas.
What to wear at home all day 101: the loungewear set that is specifically designed for being lazy.
Whether this consists of tie-dye printed joggers and a matching sweatshirt or a plain sports tracksuit, one thing’s for sure: this option is just as comfy as it is stylish.
Likewise, you can’t go wrong with jersey leggings (preferably in black so that they go with everything).
Team yours with an oversized jumper or a snug sweatshirt for a classic loungewear look that’s always a winner.
If you’re a leggings lover but want to wear something a little prettier on your top half, consider a lace-trim cami complete with a chunky knitted cardigan.
This outfit alternative is flirty, feminine and sure to turn the heads of your housemates for all the right reasons.
Trendsetters who are wondering what to wear at home all day might want to showcase high-waisted neutral joggers and a short or long-sleeved crop top.
I mean, it makes sense given that the nineties are making a huge comeback for Spring/Summer 2020. (Millennials, rejoice!)
In addition to the above, fellow fashionistas might want to get on board with jersey flare trousers as part of the hippie-inspired movement of SS20.
Personally, I like to pair mine with a boyfriend-fit t-shirt around the house (tucked in or loose depending on what kind of a mood I’m in and how many Tik Toks dances I plan to learn that day).
That said, high-waisted jersey flare trousers also look boss with a crop top, bodysuit or even a regular-fit t-shirt. Did someone say groovy?
If you’re searching for something that you can just throw on in a hurry then look no further than the lounge dress.
Whether this is in the form of a relaxed-fit sweatshirt or long cotton t-shirt with a drawstring waist, this outfit always looks the most adorable when finished off fluffy slippers or boots.
Is the weather getting warmer? Then you might want to choose jersey shorts and a cotton top as your go-to at-home uniform.
If this feels a little dull to you, add interest to your aesthetic by opting for bright colours and unique prints that express your personality.
Fans of the old-school onesie, listen up — a jumpsuit or playsuit might be the way forward for chic yet cosy style.
Whether you prefer long or short sleeves, just make sure you stick to a jersey version. At the end of the day, nobody wants to feel trussed up in impractical fabrics around the house.
To channel effortless elegance, rock the oversized button-up shirt for those days where you want to feel like you’ve made an effort.
(Hey, perhaps a cheeky FaceTime with friends, colleagues or a love interest is on the agenda?)
Finally, if you’re still wondering what to wear at home all day, why not consider your workout clothes? (Especially if you plan to work out at some point anyway.)
From soft vest tops to stretchy yoga pants and even sports bras, you can’t go wrong with this functional yet fashionable attire.
Because looking and feeling good go hand in hand, the trick is to choose the right loungewear outfit depending on what you’ve got planned for the day.
Needless to say, there’s no point wearing an oversized button-up shirt if you’re just laid on the couch watching Netflix and chilling (solo). Know what I mean?
Oh, and never forget your fluffy socks. They’re the ultimate way to feel safe and warm in these difficult, unprecedented times.
