Singapore is tightening its COVID-19 safety measures this May and June. This includes 2-pax-max social gatherings, WFH as the default, as well as the closure of indoor gyms and fitness studios. As we learnt from the Circuit Breaker in 2020, pyjamas, loungewear and activewear are about to become our go-tos. We’ve compiled a stay-home closet guide with pieces that will remain relevant even as restrictions ease up in the future. Use this as a time to invest in some comfortable and chic closet essentials for your updated work-from-home wardrobe, in Phase 2 and beyond.
When staying home, loungewear is a must. It’s a cosy, coordinated and effortless ensemble perfect for a day planted in front of the television, computer, or engaging in your favourite self-care routine. For a 2021 update, look to sets in unexpected textures and sleeveless versions perfect for Singapore’s weather.
Stylish pyjamas are all the rage right now. Think: exuberant patterns, eye-catching accents and slinky materials. Wearing these pyjamas might make you question if you actually want to leave the house. Go for a complete long-sleeve PJ set or a more cooling combo. Whichever you choose, we’ve got you covered.
For most of us, pyjamas and loungewear are the default when working from home. But dressing up when WFH could just boost our productivity. Not at the cost of comfort, of course. When looking for a balance between feeling snug and sleek, we suggest structured knitwear, edgy yoga pants, and loose shirts or dresses for your updated work-from-home wardrobe.
As we’re coaxed back into at-home YouTube workout programmes, a new set of activewear might just be the motivation you need. Think about the perfect new sports bra paired seamlessly with a pair of tights accompanying every squat, push-up, and burpee—your online workout will soon climb to the top of your priorities list.
