Yes, we all have our days where loungewear and PJs are our favourite go-tos and the idea of “getting ready” isn’t appealing at all. Or we have days where we throw on an uncomfortable pair of jeans and faded tee…just because they’re there and they’re easy. We’ve all been there – and particularly through lockdown. But often, what we really want is to be able to look chic, with relatively little effort, AND at the same time stay feeling comfy. Sound familiar? While we’re still mostly #stayingsafeathome, we thought we’d share a few tips and tricks on how to how to achieve both of these things – with ease and simplicity!
1) Say YES to the dress
We all need to take a break from wearing tight-fitting jeans or trousers, once in a while, or from pyjamas/onesies – now that the novelty is wearing off 😊. At Pentlebay we feel that dresses really can be that missing piece to the “what to wear” (whilst mainly staying in) puzzle. Whether it’s a shirt dress or a printed midi dress… these are all incredibly comfy styles that will not only boost your overall mood but will have you looking dressed to impress all year round – both at home or out and about!Shop our versatile range of dresses.
2) Wear fabrics that have you ‘feeelin’ good’
We all have our own personal tastes when it comes to the kind of fabrics that we go for and most enjoy wearing. Some of us prefer wearing cottons & linens, whereas others prefer silks and floaty fabrics. Whatever the clothing is that you’re wearing, just make sure the fabric suits you and your lifestyle. Fabric places a huge part in the comfort of clothing and can really change our mood, confidence and productivity; without us even realising sometimes.
3) Play wardrobe dress up & dress down… or a bit of both!
It’s also really important that we wear clothes that make us feel happy and confident in ourselves. Sometimes that means following trends, and other times it’s being a bit more experimental and not so conventional in our dress sense. For example, you can make casual clothes look dressy and vice versa. You can combine multiple materials and patterns to create different looks on different days. You can combine tight fit with loose fit etc etc! The sky’s the limit! What we’re really trying to say here is just have fun, be creative, be YOU 😊.
4) Accessories can make all the difference
Sometimes, all that is needed is a pair of sparkly earrings, a sophisticated scarf or a fun pair of sunnies, to elevate an outfit and make it look more “chic”. EVEN joggers can look more stylish with the right kind of accessories or jewellery to match!
5) Treat yourself to some good quality basics
It goes without saying that basics should always be the fundamental building blocks to any wardrobe; so with this in mind, we’d recommend making sure that these are of a good quality. At Pentlebay we have a number of basic tees on our website that leave you feeling comfy and looking stylish. Our soft pink v-neck tee, with a rolled sleeve, is made from lightweight viscose fabric with elastane for added stretch.Shop Now on our website: soft pink v-neck tee.
