Style Essentials for Women: Lockdown Edition | THE STYLE INSIDER

Have you got the style essentials you need for lockdown?

Lockdown has really made us value our essentials, respect the NHS more than ever and learn that no matter what, you cannot wear jeans every day. That being said, you also can’t keep wearing pyjamas day in and day out either.

From work to dinners out, we’ve all been used to having huge wardrobes with lots of choices for all occasions. Now we’re stuck at home, it’s a completely new ballgame. Don’t worry though, as we’re here with our top style essentials to get you feeling, and looking good during lockdown.


This lockdown we’re throwing it back to a seventies track-team vibe with matching sweats. When your out normally you should always have a theme with an outfit, and loungewear is no different.

Tie-dye is a huge trend for SS20 so why not get your self the matching Polo Ralph Lauren set? Each item is chic in its own way and will easily translate into your daily wardrobe when things go back to normal.


The phrase “go big, or go home” is super relevant when it comes to loungewear this lockdown. Firstly, bold branding is an easy way to elevate a basic garment and make it look fresh and fashionable.

Secondly, if you’re planning on lounging in items all day long you want them to not only look good but also feel good. Good quality loungewear isn’t hard to find and when comes with big banded branding like Tommy’s, who can say no?


Are you even human if you’ve been lounging in a pair of jeans?

If there is one essential piece of uniform for your lockdown style it is a good pair of joggers, or ten…

They provide ultimate comfort while going with practically anything. You can follow our first essential pick and gets a full matching set, or just get an individual pair which can then match with your current wardrobe. We’re partial to pairing joggers with a branded tee knotted on the waist.


If everyday wear had to be an item, that item would be a t-shirt. They’re easy, comfy and go with anything.

Just because you aren’t seeing people doesn’t mean you can get away with wearing that oversized t-shirt you’ve had for years. Staying home can really lower your mood, so treat yourself to a good tee and feel good about yourself.

Our Polo Ralph Lauren Cotton Crewneck in white is a great choice for weekly Zoom meeting too.


Leggings, the jogging bottom’s skin-tight sister.

Everyone has a pair of leggings in the back of their wardrobe somewhere. They’re a go-to when you’ve got to run errands or clean, but your joggers are just a bit too baggy. The tight fit of leggings makes them feel like a second skin and allows your shape to be seen.

So many people only opt for baggy clothing while they are working from home but tight fits can be a winner too.
