We’re starting to see the light at the end of the lockdown tunnel. Here’s how to trade your trackies for something a little more fancy, without losing any of that WFH comfort.
Stretchy waistbands but make it fashion
Not all work-worthy pants are uncomfortable. Look for laid-back styles, such as the Bilds Pant from Elk The Label. With a hidden stretch waistband at the rear, and a flat front, they give the illusion of a tailored pant with the comfort of a relaxed culotte. Camilla and Marc also offer some excellent options, including their chic Roan Pant with an inbuilt press seam. If you want an all in one look, Bul’s iconic jumpsuit is a tailored comfy treat for all bods. They also have a range of wide leg pants too.
Switch from slippers to slides
The item of clothing we’ve been neglecting the most in lockdown is our shoes. Who can see your slippers on a Zoom call anyway? If the idea of sky-high heels and callous-inducing brogues has you reaching for your sneakers, try a pair of fancy slides instead. Live your 90s teen dream with these classic black chunky heel slides from 2 Baia Vista, or go cute and comfy with their low heeled baby blue slip ons. Looking for comfort? Bared Footwear was created by podiatrist Anna Baird, and their designs hide comfy cushioned soles. Their pretty Dunnock slide will take you through the summer.
When in doubt, print it out
As the weather warms, a loose-fit dress is an easy replacement for your lockdown activewear. A floaty dress is an easy all-in-one outfit that doesn’t require too much thought after months of matching sweat sets. Pretty prints like this 100% silk number from Husk will jazz up any wardrobe. Head to Bassike, the home of chic basics, for something laid-back and cool, like sleek black v-neck slip dress.
