How to wear your WFH clothes outdoors
Now lockdowns lifting, that loungewear you stocked up on doesn’t need to be relegated to sick days and hungover Sundays. Pyjamas to the pub? We’re in.

It’s safe to say we all went a little bit overboard stocking up on loungewear when we found out we’d be working from home for the foreseeable future.
Now everything’s beginning to open up again, there’s no reason you can’t wear that comfy lounge suit to dinner or your satin PJS to the office.
Pyjamas aren’t just for bed. It’s been a tried and tested look for influencers and fashion editors everywhere and we can confirm – satin pyjamas make the ultimate effortless two piece.
To avoid the “slept through my alarm and came straight to the office” look, make sure you pair with heels or chunky trainers and some statement jewellery to make sure it looks intentional. Go for a matching combo in a luxe fabric like silk to keep it looking expensive.
Tracksuits can be chic too.
Tracksuits used to be considered the ultimate lazy-day clothing, but you can definitely get away with wearing them to brunch with your friends or some casual cocktails.
Keep your accessories chic – think an on-trend handbag, gold jewellery and some strappy heels, and throw a blazer in a bold colour over your hoodie or sweatshirt for a look that’s effortlessly on trend and comfortable to boot.
Sportswear doesn’t have to stay in the gym.
There’s never been a better time to wear your favourite workout clothes for anything other than exercise – you can even get away with them for work.
The key to taking sportswear “out out” is to pick one key piece and make everything else super structured and luxurious. Running shorts have been having a big revival recently – we love them teamed with some square toed strappy heels and an oversized blazer, or with some cute socks and trainers for a 90s vibe.
Tailored shorts paired with a colourful sports bra and heels is perfect for a warm Summer evening of dinner and drinks, or with sandals and socks for the perfect casual picnic look.
