If you ask me, lockdown dressing can be encapsulated by two words: elastic waistbands. I can barely remember the last time I fastened a button or a zip, and to be honest, I am not complaining. Rather, the months in lockdown have allowed me to find myriad ways to create outfits which look put-together yet are also extremely comfortable. And of course, I’m more than willing to share what I’ve learnt.
Evidently, I am not the only person who has developed a love for all things comfort throughout lockdown, as John Lewis reported a 1303% increase in sales of loungewear and leggings in 2020.
