In the blink of an eye, the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed people around the world to adjust to a new normal.
From working from home if possible to only leaving the house for essentials and a daily dose of exercise, day-to-day life is currently strange and uncertain for many. As always, however, there are still plenty of positive things to celebrate during these unprecedented times. We're learning to appreciate nature and our loved ones more, for example, and staying connected through innovative methods like video calls and social media. Best of all, for those lucky enough to be working remotely: We can stay in comfy clothes all day!
Whether you're working from home or cocooning in comfort while you binge Netflix, you don't need any excuse to trade in your trousers and work shirts for comfy tees and leggings while we flatten the curve. And if that isn't a silver lining, we don't know what is! To explain how to swap your work week wardrobe for cosy bamboo basics, we've teamed up with Australian sustainable clothing brand, Boody. Read on for their top tips for building a quarantine capsule wardrobe out of sustainable clothing items today.
1. Rise to the top
Put the cherry on top of your loungewear outfits with Boody's new collection of ethical bamboo tees, tanks, and camis. Versatile, soft, and breathable, they're the perfect partner for days spent working from your study or dining table. Slip on the Boody ¾ Sleeve Scoop Top and be prepared for everything, from Zoom conference calls to a much-deserved movie marathon at the end of the day.
House feeling a little chilly? Master the art of winter layering by pairing the Boody Cami Top or Boody Tank Top with your favourite winter gear. Great cold weather staples, these bamboo basics can be worn alone or teamed with a chunky knit jumper or cardigan as the temperatures plummet.
2. Stay active at home
Staying indoors all day is no reason not to stay fit and healthy at home. In fact, living a healthy, active lifestyle is now more important than ever and can help support physical and mental wellbeing during these uncertain times.
Be the most stylish woman in your live streamed fitness class and hit all your home workout goals with the Boody Racerback Sports Bra. Featuring silver stitching around the neckline and arm openings and a matching reflective logo on the back, this ethical sports bra is designed to provide medium support - making it ideal for low-impact workouts like pilates and yoga.
Complete the look by teaming your sports bra with Boody's Full Length Active Tights. The ultra-soft bamboo leggings feature a high-rise, wide waistband that lies flat against your skin for extra comfort, and a streamlined silhouette thanks to flattering contoured seam details.
3. Don't forget the finishing touches
Our final tip for staying comfy and chic at home? Perfect the finishing touches. Start by choosing luxuriously soft sustainable underwear like the Boody Shaper Crop Bra and Classic Bikini. Offering seam-free, breathable comfort, it's no wonder why both are bestselling styles of women's underwear.
Last but not least, keep your feet toasty with Boody's Women's Crew Boot Socks. Once you slip your feet into these chunky bamboo socks, we can guarantee that you won't want to take them off all winter - except to wash them, of course!
4. Stay comfortable while staying at home
When it comes to comfortable, sustainable loungewear that doesn't compromise on style or versatility, it doesn't get much better than Boody's bamboo basics. Naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, and unbelievably soft, their ethical clothing is the perfect companion to days spent indoors and working from home while social distancing.
