How to Find the Perfect Balance Between Comfort and Style At Home

For many people it would be safe to say that 2020 changed our style and fashion sense significantly. With no offices to go to, no weddings and brunches to attend, and no fun outings and travels, a huge portion of our closets started to feel useless. We started dressing mainly for comfort and convenience, which brought on the jogger and loungewear craze, and changed the face of fashion. In reaction to working from home and being indoors all the time, high style took a backseat for most of us, and now it’s hard even remembering days where we wore a glamorous dress and a pair of heels. Add to that the shift to the winter season and longer stay home orders, and it can truly feel like our style has slipped away forever. So what happens when you want to elevate your at-home style and bring a little fashionable flair to your day-to-day style? Here are a few ways to strike a balance between being chic and comfortable.

Loving Loungewear
Many fashion brands have found ways to expertly combine chic clothing with comfortable pieces, and they’ve become wardrobe staples for the fashionistas of the world. Whether it’s a tracksuit that’s a gorgeous color and made with luxurious fabrics, or leggings that can be worn with sneakers or even a more dressy pair of shoes, loungewear is truly the fashion hero of these times. One of the coolest trends that have emerged from the age of staying indoors is how loungewear has become universal and how different people can wear the same piece comfortably and confidently. Non binary fashion brands like Llessur are taking the world by storm with pieces like tunics, tracksuits and t-shirts that would bring both comfort and really elevated style to anyone’s wardrobe.

Coordinate
Back in the day, the idea of a coordinated fashion look conjured up a tacky and dated image. Now two-piece co-ords are back in a more stylish form. We’re not talking frumpy old tracksuits. We’re talking about denim shirts with really comfortable matching jeans, and comfortable top and skirt sets that look good on Zoom calls but are also comfortable to slouch on your sofa and watch Netflix in. These pre-matched outfits are great because they take a lot of the thought out of putting outfits together, and you can look really put together without a lot of effort.

Oversize
Oversize fashion is a huge trend right now, and it doesn’t have to look like you didn’t put an effort in your look or like you just rolled out of bed. In fact, an oversized look done right is incredibly chic and polished. For example, an oversized formal shirt with a pair of biker shorts has become a much favored look. It’s comfortable but also looks like the kind of outfit a model would wear off-duty. The way to make oversized look good is to make sure the item is still flattering to your shape, and then to pair it with something form fitting on the lower half of your body like a pencil skirt, shorts or leggings. That way it won’t look like you’re drowning in a lot of clothing.

Make An Effort
There’s been a big debate about how working from home and all the changes have impacted our productivity. While the jury is still out, we do know that the clothing associated with being indoors all the time can impact how you feel and present yourself. It’s really tempting to spend the whole day in your pyjamas, but it’s actually really counterproductive and makes us feel like we’re not putting our best foot forward. Even if you’re working from home, get into the habit of having a morning routine where you shower and wear a fresh set of clothes and get ready for the day ahead. Many people used to wake up excited to get dressed up for the day ahead, and that used to get them motivated for the day. Not having that in your daily routine can affect how your day goes. Why not bring that feeling to your day even if you’re just staying indoors by coming up with outfits that make your home office style feel more elevated?

It can seem like it’s hard to be fashionable when we’re all so focused on being comfortable and functional with our clothes. It’s a natural feeling to have in light of the fashion trends of 2020. Luckily, there are ways we can still look chic and feel confident while also getting the benefit of comfortable clothing. It’s pretty simple to strike the balance and still be able to express your style, even from the comfort of your home.
