Cosy co-ords will be your best pals for the foreseeable – these are the styles to try out, and never take off.
Hands up who wants to get cosy? Whether it’s the time of the year of just the year in general, 2021 is definitely all about home comforts. Yep, we mean hearty meals, wintry spiced scented candles and super snug outfits, too.
The humble hoodie is one of the hardest working items in most people’s wardrobe lately. Add to this the fact the casual jogger has made its way outside of the house – styled with leather blazers and crisp white shirts – and it’s safe to say loungewear is high priority on our lists of what to wear at any (and all) times.. The styles that are particularly gaining our attention right now are the matchy-matchy co-ords that make getting dressed a whole lot easier.
Granted, the comfy tracksuit isn’t new but we’re not just talking about your standard hoodie and joggers (although these also get a strong yes). We’re looking to the new comfy set – from the knit vest and wide leg trousers to the sweater and shorts set.
Fashion influencer Ellie from @slipintostyle pairs the lilac The Frankie Shop set with knee-high boots. You could even add printed logo tights and a cosy teddy coat to the mix now it’s so cold. Staying home for the foreseeable? It’s sets like these that’ll also become your go-to while you put your feet up to watch feel-good films.
One of the best things about these co-ords is that you’ll be able to wear them as a set, as separates, in and outside of the house. The typical capsule wardrobe looks slightly different right now, but we (along with some of our favourite brands) massively approve of the new cosy duos.
