The pandemic has meant that we’re all spending so much more time indoors than we usually would.
That said, whether you’re working, being productive with house chores or simply lounging around, it can be difficult to figure out what to wear at home all day. (Especially when you’re at home a lot these days, right?)
Ultimately, you want to feel comfortable, but you want to look cute at the same time because why not? And sometimes just getting dressed and making yourself feel nice provides you with the motivation you need to tackle the day ahead.
If you’re struggling for inspiration in this department, not to worry. Read on for our 10 favourite loungewear ideas of the moment.
1. The Loungewear Set
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.
2. Leggings and an Oversized Jumper
Likewise, you can’t go wrong with jersey leggings (preferably in black so that they go with everything).
For instance, team yours with an oversized jumper or a snug sweatshirt for a classic loungewear look that’s always a winner.
3. Leggings, Cami and a Chunky Cardigan
Are you a leggings lover but want to wear something a little prettier on your top half? If so, consider a lace-trim cami complete with a chunky knitted cardigan.
This outfit is flirty, feminine and sure to turn the heads of your housemates for all the right reasons.
4. High-Waisted Jogging Bottoms and a Simple Tee
If you’re wondering what to wear at home all day and you’re a fan of minimal style, you might opt for high-waisted neutral joggers with a short or long-sleeved tee tucked into them.
Alternatively, trendsetters may decide to rock a crop top given that the nineties are back again for Spring/Summer 2021. (Millennials, rejoice!)
5. Jersey Flare Trousers and a Boyfriend-Fit T-Shirt
Those who are a fan of traditional comfies with a fashion twist may want to get on board with jersey flare trousers as part of the hippie-inspired movement of SS21.
Personally, we like to pair ours with a boyfriend-fit t-shirt around the house (tucked in or loose depending on what kind of a mood we’re in and how many TikTok dances we plan to learn that day).
Having said that, high-waisted jersey flare trousers also look fabulous with a crop top, bodysuit or even a regular-fit t-shirt. Did someone say groovy?
6. The Throw-On Lounge Dress
If you’re searching for something that you can just throw on in a hurry, look no further than the lounge dress.
Whether it’s 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.
7. Jersey Shorts and a Cotton Top
Is the weather getting warmer? Consider jersey shorts and a cotton top as your go-to at-home uniform.
If this feels (or looks) a little dull to you, add interest to your aesthetic in an original way. For example, you could choose bright colours or unique prints to express your mood or personality.
8. Jersey All-In-One
Advocates of the old-school onesie, listen up — a jumpsuit or playsuit might be the way forward for chic yet cosy style.
Long-sleeve, short-sleeve, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you stick to a jersey version. Fundamentally, nobody wants to feel trussed up in impractical fabrics around the house.
9. Oversized Button-Up Shirt
For those days where you want to feel like you’ve made more of an effort for a cheeky FaceTime date or group Zoom call, we’ve got the perfect solution for you.
An oversized button-up shirt will channel effortless elegance (and nobody needs to know that you’ve got nothing on your bottom half!).
10. Workout Clothes
Finally, if you’re still pondering what to wear at home all day, why not consider your workout clothes? (Especially if you plan to work out at some point anyway.)
For instance, the right vest tops, yoga pants and sports bras can be functional and fashionable if you pick out pretty yet practical pieces.
What to Wear at Home All Day: It Depends On Your Plans
The trick to choosing the right loungewear outfit depends on what you’ve got planned for the day.
After all, there’s no point wearing an oversized button-up shirt and a face full of makeup if you’re just laid on the couch watching Netflix and chilling (solo). Know what we mean?
Regardless of what you wear though, never forget your fluffy socks. They’re the ultimate way to feel warm, cosy and content for a day of not doing much.
