These days, I swear by loungewear. With our home as the new office and party destination, it seems like we’re leaning into simple comforts. By switching our jeans for sweatpants, it’s a sign that it’s bound to be our uniform for the rest of the year.
Not only are sweatpants THE new jeans, bike shorts are replacing high-waisted cutoff shorts. Stretchy, but figure-flattering, bike shorts give you the freedom to not feel constricted after a meal, which is why I like to wear them around the luxury of my own couch.
Speaking of tops, I’ve ditched my going out tops for a baggy sweatshirt, which was one of my previous college girl staples. Warm, but breathable, the long-sleeved baggy tee has been so kind to me when I indulge in açaí bowls, oat milk latte and a hearty Indonesian lunch. Also, the sweatshirt has been my latest excuse to cover my cold bare legs inside its bagginess whenever I blast the AC while watching trashy reality TV shows on Netflix.
Last but not least, my trusted Juicy Couture hoodie from 2009 is like an ex you’ve decided to rekindle your relationship with. Although Juicy Couture is more of a nostalgia brand nowadays, its cultural cachet will never die out regardless of the amount of times that fashion has tried to find the next new brand to obsess over. Since I literally grew up to Juicy, I’ve collected a number of hoodies. Out of all of them, my personal fave is the cheetah print velour hoodie, a gift from my parents that I received after they visited my sister in NYC during her college years.
Now that I’ve been so accustomed to staying in, I took the time to make this tutorial for you!
