Spring Fashion Trends: At-Home Edition

at-home fashion

What do you wear for a pandemic? For me, it has been lounge wear. 

I have a variety of t-shirts, sweatshirts, leggings, and cozy pants that are in heavy rotation. Jeans? We’ll see if they fit in a few months.

I have found that uncomfortable times call for comfortable clothes. Here’s what has been my unofficial uniform for this pandemic.

Leggings and Joggers

Leggings are the backbone of any good stay-at-home outfit and provide for maximum range-of-motion. Great for household chores, workouts, impromptu dance parties, playing LEGOs, and more. Some of my favorites that generally stand the test of time are Lululemon. I also like pairs from Athleta, GapFit, and Target, All in Motion and this affordable Amazon pair under $20.

Joggers are trending right now and are also very comfortable. They are like sweatpants but a bit more fitted. Some of my favorites are are Nike, GapFit, and Under Armour. Also notable are these beauties from J.Crew that blur the line between pajamas and sweatpants.

Basic T-Shirts

Great t-shirts are also a staple. I have a ton of plain t-shirts that are mainly neutral colors. A great basic tee can be very versatile in that it will match up with almost any pants. I love shirts that are cotton and not too short (c’mon, I’m in my mid-thirties!). Some of my favorites can be found at Target, Gap, Old Navy, and J.Crew.

I also like to wear sentimental t-shirts. Many of my t-shirts are from travels, concerts, and the occasional funny/ironic t-shirt that remind me of lighter times.

Cozy Sweatshirts

I love a good cozy hoodie for around the house. I have also recently purchased some basic crew neck sweatshirts with a bit of a nineties look to them. They pair well with the basic tees and comfy pants. Here are some comfortable options from Athleta, Lou & Grey, and J. Crew.

Comfy Cardigans

I like my cardigans super soft and the closer to a blanket, the better. Cardigans are perfect for layering and feel a bit more pulled together than a robe, but are just as easy to throw on. I like these options from Eddie Bauer, Target, and Barefoot Dreams.

Robes

Great for a lazy morning or you know, the whole day. I like to use a heavy fleece robe in the winter and then transition to a lighter cotton robe as the weather warms up.

A good option for Spring would be a light floral robe like this one from Target. It could add a little color and elegance around the house. For classic comfort, try this well-reviewed robe from Amazon.

Slippers

Slippers are a must for hard, cold floors. It’s nice to have ones with a hard bottom so they can be worn outside if needed. I have owned and loved slippers from Lands End and Minnetonka Moccasins.

Light Jacket

For variable Spring weather, it is good to have options. I like to have a fleece coat, raincoat, and a coat that is slightly insulated for the Midwestern days that still feel like winter. I would recommend the Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket, Madewell Packable Raincoat, and this Lightweight Down Jacket from Amazon.

Rain Boots

For when your kids want to go puddle-stomping, rain boots. Hunter Boots are a classic and tall enough to withstand even the deep puddles. I have this Sperry pair and also this affordable pair from Target.

Running Shoes

For running outside, running after kids, or running to the grocery store. There are many, many options online to fit your personal preferences. Some of my go-to’s are Adidas, Nike, and Brooks.

Hats

Sporty or have not showered? They’ll never know. Paired with a face mask, you could have the perfect disguise. I like to use my baseball caps to show my sports affiliations; Vikings, UND, and Minnesota Twins. I also have one hat for running and a straw hat for just being outside or lake days. I like the idea of a fedora, but haven’t quite figured out how to pull one off.

For the Future

I believe there are good days ahead. Days involving get togethers with family and friends, dates with my husband outside our home, weddings, and lake days. And so although I have found comfort in my day-to-day wardrobe, I am also looking forward to dusting off my dresses, sweaters, and jeans.

I just hope they’ll still fit!
