It’s easy to think lockdown essentials are your bed and fridge, but for some men keeping their style in check is just as important. Not being able to see your family and mates can take a massive toll on your mood and mental health. Remember looking good can make you feel good and even though you’re not hitting the streets, keeping yourself feeling fresh can do wonders to your mood.
If you’re wanting to inject some style into your lockdown wardrobe, we’ve got a list of the best bits for your indoor fits.
Let’s start off with the most essential part of any lockdown wardrobe: joggers. On an off-duty day, they’ll always be the top choice, and now every day is pretty much an off-duty day they will be vital to your style. Keep it comfy and wearable with fleece-lined Armani Exchange joggers or make a relaxed statement with a trusty pair of branded Tommy Hilfiger joggers.
A trusty tee is the bread and butter of any outfit. Yeah, they can be basic in style but when you’re staying at home you deserve comfort. For days spent watching Netflix try a BOSS lounge tee, which comes in a slightly oversized fit. Or opt for a pure cotton Fred Perry Ringer when going on the weekly Zoom call with colleagues.
Care about the environment? So does Tommy Hilfiger, so slip on their hoodies made from organic cotton and feel confident while your conscience is clear. Or if you’re looking for a statement sweat, EA7‘s Maxi Logo Sweatshirt is lightweight and easy to throw on and off throughout the day.
In the UK we’ve been blessed with some good weather during the lockdown, so you need some style sun-based essentials. If you’re fortunate enough to have a garden or balcony, you’ll have been enjoying the weather in your shorts. Though, why not try a pair of swim trunks instead? They’re far lighter, have mesh linings and won’t leave you with any unfortunate sweat marks.
Sure caps are great for the sun too but they’re also a great accessory for your lockdown fit.
With barbers being shut and some lads doing their own trim, a cap might be a good idea for indoors and out. Hide what’s happening on your head grabbing a reliable accessory like the Armani Exchange Logo Cap.
Not everyone has a decent pair of slippers, some just have that gift set a family member gave them for Christmas back in 2014, which is still unopened. Don’t sweat it though, a quality pair of socks will do just the job and save you time and money.
They’re a pretty unrated essential but socks have a special place on this list. Best place to try out new socks is at home. So get your hands on a bold pair from Ted Baker, or a classic pair form BOSS.
