As winter draws in and the country enters another lockdown, there’s never been a better time to invest in loungewear essentials. We’ve all put away our nicer clothes, and our usual winter staples, in favour of more casual clothes to wear while working from home and spending more time indoors with our families. When it comes to loungewear, there is a world of options for modest fashion choices. To help us all deal with our new ‘normal’, we have rounded up our top four loungewear styling tips to reinvent your lockdown wardrobe.
- Invest In A Casual Abaya
We all have go-to pieces in our wardrobe that are our favourite comfort outfits to snuggle up in during the colder months. Treat yourself to a casual abaya to wear during lockdown to spark a little joy into your day. Our light hooded abaya dress is a perfect choice for layering over other clothing for added warmth, while still letting you look put together for when you need to run to the shops. This style is also perfect for anyone with an athleisure flare to their style.
- Keep Your Look Monochrome
An easy trick to elevate any loungewear outfit is to keep your look monochrome from head to toe. Pick your favourite colour, or stick with earth tones for ultimate versatility. Not only does this add a little style into your wardrobe, but it also allows you to experiment with colours. A simple way of achieving a monochrome look is with a matching abaya maxi dress which is a wardrobe staple that you can wear post-lockdown as well, or with a hooded abaya.
Loungewear no longer means just your pyjamas, and by elevating your look with a simple tip like this, you can stay comfy wherever you go. The right loungewear set will become your go-to outfit for running errands, shopping or meeting friends at a coffee shop. Find a comfortable outfit that you can wear both at home and on the go.
- The Fit Is Important
When choosing your loungewear outfits, it’s a good idea to keep the fit of the garment in mind. We all love to snuggle up in oversized clothing, but it’s best to go up one size when choosing your loungewear items. Going up just one size lets you still enjoy the slight oversized feel without giving the appearance that you’re wearing pyjamas. If you’re in the market for a two-piece outfit, then look for slim-fitting trousers and an oversized top to balance out your look.
4.Wear A Casual Abaya As A Cardigan
With a casual abaya, you can make any loungewear look stylish - even your pyjamas! You can wear a solid coloured open abaya as an oversized cardigan to complete any look. We offer abaya dresses in a rainbow of colours, letting you pick your favourite. An open abaya can be styled over a cotton dress or a two-piece tunic and pants set. It’s also a perfect styling option if you have to go outside and don’t want to get out of your comfortable outfit. Just throw on your abaya as a cardigan, and you’re ready to go.
