A lot of us are spending more time at home than usual, and it’s safe to say that loungewear has unabashedly become everyone’s favourite style. Relaxed silhouettes, oversized fits, and feel-good fabrics offer ease and comfort that tight-fitted clothes simply don’t.
However, if your work-from-home outfit includes the same old pair of sweatpants on repeat, your loungewear collection may benefit from a makeover. Research proves that planning an OOTD (outfit of the day) is good for mental health, while wearing bright colours or playful prints can help boost our mood. So, why not elevate your at-home looks by experimenting with different styles? Ahead, we bring you five trendy, must-try looks that’ll instantly transform your work-from-home outfit into an Instagram-worthy post.
