How to upgrade your loungewear

If you work from home or look after the kids or you just relaxing at home on the weekends you'll spend most of the time in the house wearing loungewear. And to be honest for most of us that means some old leggings and a baggy t-shirt. However, especially if you're working from home like me, you want something that is both comfortable but also adds an element of style and makes us look put together. 
To avoid being embarrassed again when we open the door to the postman, here are some easy ways to upgrade your loungewear. 

Stay away from damaged tees and leggings

Even though you're in the house and not in the public, you want to take pride in your outfit and feel good and confident. So it's time to let go of all the old and damaged t-shirts and those leggings with holes in and go for something that's both in good condition and looks effortlessly chic. 

DIY your old t-shirts

If you have plenty of t-shirts from live gigs or promo events, rather than throwing them in the bin why not transform them yourself? It's way more easy than you think. There are so many videos with so many ideas on how to transform your boring tees to stylish tops for your loungewear, you'll definitely find something that matches your personal style. 

Invest in a good layer 

Sometimes even in the warmer months, you need something to keep you warm and cosy. A good quality cardigan will help you look polished and chic. 

Stick to basic colours and breathable fabrics

When it comes to loungewear. less is more. It's better to stick to natural tones or solid colours so you won't have to spend time thinking about what to wear. Also, remember the benefits to picking loungewear with breathable fabrics: it will stop you roasting in the summer heat and it will help your body breath meaning you're going to be sweating less which is hugely helpful if you have a lot of work around the house. 

Loungewear has become very popular in recent years so it's quite easy to find the right style and fit for you. No more embarrassing moments in front of the postman!
