Just because we’re stuck at home these days doesn’t mean we can’t be stuck at home in style. This week I’m showing you guys what I’ve been gravitating towards while working and just hanging around the house. Yes I am all for comfort when it comes to quarantine outfits, but comfort does not mean you have to sacrifice on style! There are so many stylish sweatsuits, ways to dress up sweatpants, and other comfy pieces you can rock while at home!
Sweatpants…. but make it fashion
My favourite way to rock sweatpants and still look stylish is layering it with a cool kimono on top. I have so many kimonos in my wardrobe that I usually wear to the beach over a bathing suit, or with cutoff denim shorts and a crop top to music festivals. But kimonos are also super comfortable and flowy which makes them perfect for wearing at home too! It’s like wearing your bathrobe, but way more put together. For a top to go with the sweatpants, I think a simple form-fitting crop top like I’m wearing here is a great option because the slimmer silhouette lies seamlessly under the kimono. However, for an edgier look, I also think a loose band tee (either a cropped one or tucked in) would also be super cool with sweats and a kimono! Sweats are probably our #1 best friend in quarantine, so if we’re gonna wear them, might as well make them look good at the same time.
Tie-Dye Sweat Sets
I know, I know! Everyone and their mother is wearing tie-dye sweatsuits right now and I can’t deny it, I’m definitely a sucker for the trend too. I’ve been obsessed with the trend for a while now (see THIS post and THIS one too where I rock tie-dye) but I love that because of quarantine, the trend has taken over in the form of comfy sweatpants, sweatshirts, hoodies, etc. Matching tie-dye pieces are so cute and you instantly have a full outfit to wear at home. They’re easy to find as well since literally every online clothing shop is selling them. My favourite ones are from Urban Outfitters, they have such a wide variety and come in so many cool colours! Since they are sweatshirts after all, to dress them up, I like to pair them with some gold jewelry. And don’t skimp out on the jewelry either. Layer on chunky necklaces with your daintier ones and go to town with it! The more, the merrier.
If you wanna get a little more creative, then I highly suggesting tie-dying some sweatsuits yourself!! It’s such a fun way to pass the time and you can customize them however you’d like. The sports bra and sweatshirt I’m wearing above were both tie-dyed myself with some Rit dye I got off Amazon. All it took was dye, white sweats/bras/whatever you want to tie dye (just make sure they are mostly comprised of cotton), water, and a few hours! I decided to do a pink pair and a purple pair to either wear together or mix and match with each other. I absolutely love how they came out! Once you wash and dry them, the colours bleed together and fade a little so they’re the perfect pastel shades. The little beaded choker necklaces I’m wearing are also a DIY project. I’ve taken up jewelry making during quarantine as well and I’m having so much fun making these little beaded flower necklaces and bracelets!
Y’all know I can’t resist a good two-piece set. They’re the easiest, most effortless outfit you could put together and so versatile at the same time. Well for quarantine, I am OBSESSED with these knit sets that Zara has come out with!! Not gonna lie, they’re hard to get a hold of since they always sell out so quickly, but if you can get your hands on them, I highly recommend it! They are the cutest and comfiest thing for lounging around at home in! The shorts are itty bitty so I probably wouldn’t wear them outside the house, but the crop top and cardigan are both pieces that I can easily pair with other things in my wardrobe like high-waist jeans or dresses once quarantine is over.
That’s pretty much been my stay-at-home quarantine outfits for the last few months. Granted there are definitely some days where I spend the entire day in my pajamas or bathrobe, but when I do put in a little more effort, these are the outfits you’ll most likely find me in. I think it’s also super important to get dressed in regular clothes from time to time, whether you’re staying home or have some essential errands to run. My last two posts featured regular outfits and I definitely will be showcasing more of them going forward. Quarantine fashion can be fun, but it just does not compare to putting on an outfit that makes you look and feel your best!
Until next time, stay safe!!
