AS spring bursts into bloom and lockdown rolls on, it’s time to think about the new season’s hot looks. What are you wearing in your hallway or kitchen?
Lightweight two-season dressing gown
Wave goodbye to frumpy, outdated towelling robes and slip on a lightweight number that will, as has become tradition, be worn for 16 hours every day and only be removed for Zoom calls and showers.
Weird old football shorts
Early lockdown was the era of the sweatpant, but with sunshine comes the opportunity to get your knees out in some bizarre old football shorts that you honestly couldn’t cite the provenance of if your life depended on it. Works equally well for men and women.
Damp, musty workout clothes
Maintaining fitness is crucial, but rushing to change afterwards like you used to back when people could see you? Less so. Let your damp, rancid workout clothes act as a welcome cooling system as the days heat up.
A five-day sock system
Wear your socks for five days minimum. A lockdown fashion staple that’s going nowhere between seasons. Because, really, who is changing their socks every day right now? Even David Gandy can’t see the point.
Half-cup bra facemask
Haven’t got a facemask? Simply cut an old bra in two and use one cup to cover, and offer support to, the lower half of your face. Perfect for two-metre distant flirtation in the Lidl queue.
A great way to mark the new season is by changing up your stain patterns. While gravy and tea were all the rage, the spring palette is all about ketchup, barbecue sauce and smoothies where you left the lid off the Nutribullet. Wine stains continue to be very chic.
