Everyday clothes

What do we want? We want to be both comfortable and beautiful. Here are lovely clothes to wear at home.

Being concerned with the way we look, taking care of the way we dress, doing our hair and wearing make-up are not only good for weekends or work days. It is important to take some time to look good for us, not only for other people. It is possible to feel beautiful every day even when you are a stay-at-home mom, without wearing an evening gown or a suit!

Choosing your fabrics is important: you must choose natural and elastic fibres. Softness and flexibility are important to feel comfortable all day.

Sophisticated and sexy apparel should only be worn during adults’ nights out. The same goes for stilettos. During the day, you should aim for comfort, simplicity, style and femininity.

To spice up your outfit, accessorize with some trendy items: handbags, watch, ring or bracelet. Here are a few suggestions of clothing:

Jeans: They should not make you look like a muffin (with the little strip of fat hanging down all around your waist). Make sure that the waist is not too low. It will give you much more latitude to choose a top.

Cardigan – shawl: V-neck vest without buttons of different lengths (somewhere between mid-hips and half of your thighs)

Stylish jersey t-shirt (ex: heart warmer, draped neckline, shirred shoulders and neckline, empire waist)

Yoga style apparel

Boots and slippers all at once UGG, indoor and outdoor styles (ultra comfortable and stylish)

Legging or jeggings – wear with a tunic (mid-thigh length minimum)

Mid-thigh length coat Carefully choose one that is not too sporty or too masculine.

Wear hoes with soft and non-slip soles, with or without heels. I am not talking about a schoolboy shoe with think and massive soles! There are feminine versions on the market that are both stylish and comfortable. Keep your sport shoes for… sports!

In fact, you must avoid wearing pyjamas and old clothes all day long. If you are spending most of your time at home, then you must invest in everyday clothes. Pick quality over quantity, your clothes will keep their shape and you will truly notice a difference in the comfort level.

Taking a few minutes every day to do your hair and wear some make-up (foundation, bronzer, mascara, eye shadow in neutral colors and gloss) will enhance your outfit and give you a little boost of energy.
