There are no rules when it comes to fashion: especially in quarantine. Comfy should not be a prohibited word, there’s nothing wrong with the concept of feeling good in a particular outfit.
Fashion is changing: the experience of lockdown is reshaping our needs and desires, and with few chances of finding an effective vaccine for Covid-19 soon, the issue will probably be with us for some time.
As we spend more time at home – working remotely -, many of our clothes haven’t seen the light of day in months: the lockdown impacted on the way we dress, and style might be the least of our worries.
In that respect, almost everybody decided to adopt a comfortable lifestyle – and embraced the wardrobe to match. They’ve gone from dressing to look good to dressing to feel good.
However, dressing to feel comfortable and to please yourself doesn’t mean you should shy away from the show of dressing up. Dressing with joy can boost your spirits and make your style, and that’s because fashion and style do have an effect on our mood and emotions.
But that doesn’t mean you need to start wearing underwire bras, skinny fit pants and tight jerseys. In this challenging time, you have to fill your closet wisely and strategically.
Here are some options to help you move through your day with comfort and confidence while you stay at home.
A pair of stretch jeans
If you think wearing jeans in quarantine is crazy it’s because you haven’t found the right pair. Denim will make you feel more energized and positive during lockdown.
Luckily, jeans are evolving into a comfy option, and stretch jeans are reportedly one of the best as far as comfort goes. If you have never worn a pair of stretch jeans before, you might be surprised to learn just how comfortable they really are: you need to feel it to believe it.
In that sense, stretch jeans are a smart investment. The elastic material allows you to bend and move around easily, without the restraint of tradicional denim.
There’s no doubt that texture has a part to play: a pant made of stretch material is usually going to be soft and pleasant to wear, lightweight to the touch and looks.
A supportive shaper bra
When it comes to having a comfortable bra to wear at home, many women need or prefer a cozier alternative to the uncomfortable underwire bras. Although sports bras are an option, they can often provide too much support and weakening back muscles.
However, it’s important to have some support, otherwise your back muscles are going to have to work a lot harder to balance out your weight.
There are also other factors that can contribute to women’s back pain: some women are less comfortable with their shape, so may slump or arch shoulders, which could eventually lead to pain.
In that sense, for women who need in-home support, choosing a shaper bra it’s a good option: it has a flexible fabric designed with function and comfort (without poking or pinching!).
Shaper bras can be used everyday or anytime you feel like you need a boost on your energy.
An oversize colorful sweater
An oversize sweater is ideal when you want to get away with wearing pajamas but wrap yourself in something soft. It delivers on both quality and style: it can make you feel femenine and flirty, even when you’re just wearing it around the house.
The oversize fit makes it super comfortable, easy to wear and adaptable. You can combine your sweater with a pair or stretch jeans or leggings when you’re inside, and switch to skinny jeans and boots outside the house (and even add some accessories to dress it up!).
There are plenty of choices, whether you’re looking for something to boost your energy (choose bright colors!) or you’re more interested in the fabric.
Comfy clothing needs a rebrand. Simple well-fitting clothes make sense, not just for staying at home.If you have the right pieces of clothing there are many stylish and comfy outfits that can make you feel good when you look at your reflection.
