Comfortable and practical clothes. Words that I find essential these days when planning my wardrobe. I was going to call this post “Comfortable capsule travel wardrobe”. However, under the circumstances, I don’t think many of us are doing much travelling at the moment.
We were planning to go down to the South of France next week however sadly that is no longer going to be possible.
However, in my opinion, we still need to keep our spirits up and there is no reason why we should not continue to wear stylish, practical and comfortable clothes if we are working from home or choosing to self-isolate. This season Hopefashionuk seems to have come up with a collection that is not only comfortable and practical but also stylish. The type of clothes that we will be able to wear for many years to come.
All the styles that I have chosen for this post are in my opinion simple, elegant and chic.
Above I am wearing their Cotton Saddle Stitch Knit Jumper in Cream. The subtle navy saddle stitch detail lifts the sweater from plain to special. The side splits, allow the garment to sit comfortably on the hips, delicately accentuating your curves. I can testify that the 100% cotton yarn is very soft and comfortable. I have completed the look with their Cotton Knit Wide Leg Trouser. Cream and soft pink bead and freshwater pearl necklace available at Chicatanyage Shop.
These really are pull-on and go trousers. The 100% Cotton knit makes them very comfy. They are widish but in my opinion not too wide so would not be overwhelming if you are petite. The subtle but unmissable cream saddle stitch detail along the outer leg creates a transformative illusion that serves to elongate the leg, whilst also providing a modern-chic look.

These days many of us are looking to consume less, purchasing when we need something rather than because it’s “on-trend”; thus helping us to avoid impulse purchases. One of the things I find refreshing about Hopefashionuk is that they launch their seasonal collection later than most brands so that we can make our purchase when we are ready to wear them.
It was a joy modelling these clothes as they were so comfortable I did not want to take them off.
Disclaimer: The trousers and both sweaters were kindly lent to me for photographic purposes and have been returned. They are definitely going on my wish list.
PS. I am not going to specifically take about “the virus” as unless you live on a desert island with no means of communication you will be well informed. However, I am wishing you all well. Due to my age, I will be “self-isolating”. The blog will continue as I work from home. Let us keep connected and I would be happy for you to use the comments section to keep in touch, let us know how you are and to share any tips on how you are managing and what is helping you to navigate these very challenging times. I will be back at the end of this week to share some ideas of my own.
