Missguided have assembled a well-designed style guide to replace your everyday ‘jeans and a nice top’ with a range of outfits that are self-isolation friendly. By pairing a stunning top with cosy joggers, the range gives you the chance to look good in isolation AND have a new outfit ready for when you’re able to go out again. This edit ensures you sacrifice neither your comfort nor your sense of style – you can be business on the top, whilst sticking to party on the bottom… what more could you want?

Having the opportunity to dress up brings some much-needed normality back into our lives

Since the whole world went on lockdown, staying in has become the new going out, so why not add a little flair to your comfy and casual looks? As there is very little to look forward to whilst in lockdown, having the opportunity to dress up brings some much-needed normality back into our lives. Whether you’re having a movie night with your family, a virtual pub quiz with friends, or even a Skype date with your beau, Missguided’s ‘joggers and a nice top’ have you covered. The collection solves all our fashion needs when struggling to combine feeling good and looking good. Just because we’re stuck inside, for the time being, it doesn’t mean that we can’t make an effort – or at least on the top half.

Routine is important for maintaining good mental health and getting dressed is an important part of that routine

It can be tempting to fall into a cycle of pyjamas and sweats when in isolation or working from home, whilst this isn’t a completely bad idea, getting dressed into a comfy yet cute outfit can really set your day off to a good start. Routine is important for maintaining good mental health and getting dressed is an important part of that routine. Putting together a fun yet functional outfit will add some excitement to what seems like a bunch of fairly repetitive days- just pop on a cute top and maybe a dash of make-up, and you’re ready for whatever your day has to offer. Give your wardrobe a re-vamp with a bunch of new gorgeous clothes, I guarantee you’ll love it.

Oddly enough, a dressy top and elasticated bottoms don’t exactly scream ‘New York Fashion Week’, however, the combination actually works well together. The new line fits every possible self-isolation occasion, and we’re here for it. You can browse the suggested combinations on Missguided’s website.
