There is no denying that life is very different from the way it was last Autumn. As we begin to think about the clothes we will be wearing in the months to come the likelihood is that the first word that comes to mind will be comfortable. Whether we are working from home or going for a walk in the park our clothes will need to be hardworking. So let’s begin to build a practical and comfortable wardrobe.
Loungewear, athleisure or whatever you like to call it is being promoted by many of the stores. Brands and designers are no longer trying to persuade us to wear the “latest fashion”. Personal style, practicality and comfort are the new buzz words. Not that I ever took much notice as I have always preferred a more pared-down classic way of dressing.
When I examine my wardrobe I find many items I was wearing in “lockdown” will continue to be part of my wardrobe going forward into Autumn. I was nervous about embracing joggers at the beginning as they reminded me of the gym and running, neither of which I ever liked. To dip my toes in this particular pond I bought my first pair of joggers from Me&Em back in May. You can see me wearing them here. I really got to like them, they were so practical and comfortable and as they were made with drapey fabric they did not bag or cling. Me&Em have an excellent range of joggers plus some great ideas on how to style them.
My grey hoodie is also from Me&Em a few seasons ago. They do some gorgeous cashmere ones, which are on my wish list but they are a bit pricey. These are the second pair of joggers I have bought and they are from Hush.
