Seeing as we’re all stuck inside at the moment it’s very easy just to slob-out and give-up making an effort, but we sometimes forget the transformative nature of what we wear to reflect our mood and this is so important at the moment. It doesn’t mean we have to compromise on comfort, which is also key.
I think it’s also important to not go and buy a whole load of new things to try and lift our spirits. Now’s a really good time to rake through your wardrobe and see what gems you have hidden and what you may want to add, if necessary.
My lockdown essentials are definitely workout gear and silk shirts, kaftans (for warmer weather), cashmere and elasticated trousers. If I do buy anything it will not be something I wouldn’t normally wear outside the house.
I have always loved matching separates, preferably in a print, so for me these are a great investment:
I think they can look so pared-down but chic with a smattering of gold jewellery.
Here are my current picks of all things comfy but chic (click on image for link):
Not your typical loungewear I must admit, but I think it’s important to wear things that make you feel good and for me, as always, colour and print as well as comfort are key in lifting my mood.
I’ve been wearing a lot of workout gear to keep me motivated to move:
…my favourite brand for this is Sweaty Betty:
…not cheap I admit, but you really can’t go wrong for a great fit, superior fabrics and comfort. I’m seriously tempted by the blue top and leopard-print leggings.
As we’re coming into a new season I’ve noticed my wishlist is getting rather long so I’ll share what’s on it in another fashion post and I’ll do another one on my favourite bags from my personal collection (I’m missing not using them!).
Best wishes and good health to you all.
