While we often think of style in terms of what we wear out in the world and for social interaction, I think that how we dress “when no one’s looking” can be just as important. What we choose to wear is a message we send to ourselves about our needs, values, attitudes, and self-worth. So even though we may be staying home and avoiding social situations, we can still use style as a touchpoint.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be focusing on clothing that’s comfortable enough to wear at home now, and put-together enough to wear out later.
Wear At Home Clothes: Sweaters
For this edition of the Wear-At-Home Style Files, I’ve pulled together some cozy, colorful sweaters. Even though we’re a few days from the official start of Spring, it’s been chilly and damp here. Most days I’ve been wearing a lightweight cashmere pullover at home. (For those of you in warmer climates, next week I’ll feature some warm weather tops.)
And I’ve focused on colorful options, as I find color is such a mood-lifter.
Cashmere & Wool
So let’s start with some cashmere, shall we? J.Crew just dropped some new styles, and in some excellent colors. I have this striped one on order to try in two of the new colorways. It’s offered in sizes XX-Small to 3X.
Lands’ End also does some good cashmere. This tee is offered in what looks to be a cool-ish red, as well as some neutrals.
This v-neck cashmere tunic is offered in Misses, Petites, and Plus sizes, and in several colors.
Merino wool is another favorite of mine (excellent for travel once we’re back to it), and this sweater is SO good. It’s lightweight, not oversized but not too fitted, and soft, not scratchy. In sizes XX-Small to 3X, and some good neutrals too.
Here’s a 100% cotton sweater in a very pretty rose pink.
Here’s an organic cotton and linen sweater in a gorgeous blue. (Winters, I think this one’s for you.)
Another nice option for those who prefer darker, deeper colors. This cotton-linen blend sweater will also look great come Autumn. Offered in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Tall sizes, and in several other colors too.
Here’s an easy, lightweight cardigan for those fluctuating temperature situations.
