5 Tips to Make Your Loungewear Last Past Lockdown

Now that loungewear is De Rigueur, there are some beautiful options that would simply be wasted if they were strictly for the sofa! So make your loungewear choices work for lockdown and beyond, with our quick and easy guide to choosing comfy clothes that can be taken from casual to smart (for when we can actually leave the house again) with these easy tips:

1. Choose neutral tones

Opting for camel, beige, black or navy loungewear will not only make it look smarter, it will also go with similar tones. Think black joggers with a white tee, black blazer and trainers.

2. Add a stylish coat

Throwing on the right coat or jacket can take your look from the sofa to the street in an instant. Whether it's a trench coat, leather jacket or a sharp black or beige blazer, it will make your outfit more purposeful and less accidental. 

3. The right shoes pull it together

As tempting as it is to leave the house in your slippers, trading them in for a pair of box fresh trainers (either plimsolls or the chunkier dad-style ones) or ankle boots can make all the difference. Make sure your trousers have an elasticated bottom for a flattering leg shape - they also sit easier on top of ankle boots. 

4. Mix and match

If you don't have an entire loungewear set, you can mix and match one comfortable piece with other items. This could be a pair of joggers with a white shirt or an oversized sweatshirt with a pair of black cigarette trousers to bridge the gap between smart and casual. 

5. Don't forget to accessorise

A well-placed necklace or hoop earrings can instantly bring a more casual look together. Running out of the house? Scrape your hair back into a low bun, throw on your loungewear and add a pair of fabulous earrings - you won't believe the difference it makes.
