Nothing says effortless elegance quite like cozy knits, which is why Skims’ sumptuous separates make such an enviable pairing. Style these with luxe slides by footwear legend Manolo Blahnik – once you’ve cosseted your feet in his shearling mules, you’ll happily disregard all other footwear – and use your extra time at home to try some new skincare products. Epara’s hydrating mask – which promises to restore elasticity and minimize fine lines and wrinkles – will transform your beauty regimen.

LA-based label Leset, which we all love for its premium pajamas and loungewear, has quickly established itself as the final word in off-duty dressing. Consider investing in the brand’s cotton-blend separates for the ultimate form of sartorial self-care. Turn nesting into a fine art by running a hot bath and adding a liberal splash of essential oils and lighting some scented candles – Diptyque’s signature Rose scent is sure to set the mood. After you’ve unwound, pop on a pair of cozy slippers and curl up on the couch with a good book. Bliss.
There’s been a lot of noise on the internet about how ‘dressing for the office’ – even if that’s working from your dining-room table – can have a huge impact on your productivity. That said, the idea of donning a suit to stay in the house does seem somewhat excessive. Get the best of both worlds by layering one of Meng’s chic floral robes over the ultimate tried-and-tested combination: a simple white tee and jeans. And the multi-tasking doesn’t have to stop there: make the most of this new normal – and time away from air-conditioned offices – by treating your skin to a little TLC. Give your usual nine-to-five beauty look a miss in favor of Dr. Barbara Sturm’s high-performance serums, which are guaranteed to leave you looking and feeling refreshed.
It’s fair to say that, until the events of 2020 turned the world upside down, loungewear was an oft-overlooked section of most women’s closets. Unsurprisingly, though, it’s become an area of interest in recent months and has led many of us to realize that an eclectic assortment of sweats and knitwear simply won’t do. Put an elegant spin on off-duty dressing by adding a collared sweater and pair of wide-leg pants by Loro Piana – the Italian brand known for its second-to-none fabric and fit – to your arsenal. Of course, all this time indoors has also led to a renewed focus on interiors. L’Objet’s heavenly scented and exquisitely crafted candles double as pieces of modern art – dotting a few around your home is a sure-fire way to spark joy every day.
