Quarantine & Chill: 5 Basic Loungewear Outfits to Wear During Lockdown

Fashion
Due to the current crisis, the UK is unfortunately in lockdown. As everyone is spending a lot more time at home, I thought I’d put together some laidback outfits for whether you’re WFH or using your time to ‘Quarantine & Chill’.
Although the urge to stay in PJ’s for the day is all too tempting, just getting changed into clothes gives you some sort of motivation and sets you up for the day. I find loungewear to be stylish yet effortless so for me, the next few weeks will consist of joggers, hoodies, cardigans and leggings  – Farewell for now jeans!
(Does any one else think it’s weird when people chill at home in jeans? Yeah, me too.)

OUTFIT 1

Hoodies are a staple item to have in your wardrobe; they’re practical, great for layering and incredibly cosy. I’m in love with the Charcoal colour of this I Saw It First Basic Oversized Hoodie and the soft fleece lining it has inside for extra comfort. Oversized hoodies in particular are a great throw on piece over leggings for an easy, chilled-out look.

An added bonus of being in quarantine with your partner? – you can pinch their clothes! Check shirts are very on trend at the moment and although I’m yet to get my own, I’ll make do borrowing this Asos Check Shirt from my husband for now. These shirts are quite easy to get hold of on clothing websites such as Pretty Little Thing, Missguided, Asos etc. I’ve teamed it with a Missguided White Rib Tank Top and the Missguided Oversized 90s Joggers. These are my absolute FAV joggers! They have a slouchy fit and a drawstring waist, are super fleecy on the inside and are probably the comfiest item of clothing I own so I would highly recommend. I feel grey marl joggers are the epitome of casual loungewear and the colour goes with most outfits.

The grey marl joggers are back and I’m loving the grey-on-grey. This soft H&M Rib-knit Cardigan has an oversized fit with big sleeves and is perfect for layering over a bralette or crop top and relaxed bottoms; I’ve worn it on top of my Calvin Klein Unlined Bralette.

This outfit is simple and comfy – everything needed for an effective, casual ensemble. This Primark Batwing Cardigan is great for warmer days as its made from a thin material, meaning it’s practical for spring time. I’ve paired the cardigan with a plain H&M Crop Jersey Strappy Top and these Dark Charcoal I Saw It First Basic Joggers as an easy, basic look. 

OUTFIT 5

All beige everything. Although this type of top gives me baby grow vibes, I do find it very comfy and easy to style with joggers. This Beige H&M Short Jersey Top has a ribbed texture and a cute buttoned detail running down it; I’ve teamed it with these I Saw It First Basic Joggers

Comfort is key when it comes to putting together your outfit for the day. If you’re looking for something easy and comfortable to wear, joggers are the perfect staple item for a casual outfit.

For a luxe yet relaxed style, I teamed joggers with a slinky, disco fabric zip up top and chunky trainers. The neutral tones of nude and grey in the outfit are contrasting yet balance out each other well and help the ensemble appear more effortless.
