Even as things begin to reopen, quarantine has left us all dressed up with nowhere to go. It wasn’t long before your much-loved outfits were replaced by sweatpants. Luckily, thanks to Instagram, our favorite influencers are using this time so inspire our wardrobes. Here we’ve rounded up the best Instagram style in lockdown.
If you’ve been anywhere near Instagram in the last month, there’s been one trend making a comeback – and we’re here for it! Tie-Dye is a time old way to breath new life into your old clothes and you can use seasonal colors to keep it on-trend! From sweatpants to tank tops, we’ve even seen a few facemasks that have been given a facelift. This is one lockdown trend you won’t want to miss.
- Bike Shorts
We’ve been loving our bike shorts for a while but had to tuck them away during the colder months. We’re just so happy spring is here so we can wear them all over again. They’re the perfect isolation short to take you from a YouTube pilates class, to the office (if you wear a nice top who cares about your pants), or to Zoom drinks with the girls with your best baggy tee. Bike shorts aren’t going anywhere and we couldn’t be happier to hear it!
- Chunky Sweaters
We’re not sure if it’s to do with all the knitting everyone’s been doing or that extra cozy factor, but chunky sweaters are all over our grid. Whether it’s long and drapey or a turtleneck to keep your neck snug, a knitted sweater is our ultimate go-to. They’re comfy with jeans and extra-cute with a slip skirt – it’s definitely one piece you should make an investment in, even if we are heading into summer!
- Lockdown Gowns
Loved by boho babes across the globe, Byron Bay’s Spell set off a new wave of isolation style with their #lockdowngown challenge. The brand has a cult following and is known for their bright and beautiful patterns, and luxurious robes you want to wear about the house. The challenge inspired stay-at-home chic for all the wanderlust souls, and the gowns just make you want to spend a slow Sunday at home with a cup of coffee and a good book. We’ve been inspired to hunt out some of our own!
- Homemade Clothes
It seems like every fashion icon we know has been dusting off the sewing machine and stitching up something gorgeous. With this much time at home, it’s the perfect excuse too. We’ve seen everything, from babydoll dresses to maxi skirts, and we’re here for the creativity! If you’re new to sewing, try a couple of iron-on patches on an old jacket or turning your daggy jeans into cute shorts for summer.
- Funky Earrings
When it feels like your outfits couldn’t get more repetitive if they tried, pull out the accessories. By adding a scarf, belt, or your favorite necklace, an outfit can change just like that! If you’re looking for a simple way to spice up your sweats, a pair of funky earrings will always do the trick.
