I never thought I would have developed a full-blown “quarantine wardrobe,” or had to put together multiple work from home outfits…let alone that I would be wearing these outfits well into the end of 2020. But here we are. And now, Chicago has officially mandated a stay-at-home order for the next 30 days. So, it’s safe to say that I will be wearing more plus size athleisure outfits.
For the longest time, my plus size loungewear consisted of plus size sweatpants or an oversized T-shirt. While I didn’t hate lounging around in comfortable clothes, I noticed that my confidence and productivity were low when I didn’t get dressed. So now that we are going into the second wave of stay at home orders, I am glad I know what to expect and how to keep myself feeling confident and balanced—with my wardrobe and beyond.
This outfit has been my favorite look for a day out. It’s perfect for the times when I just want to wear something comfortable, but I don’t want to feel frumpy. I feel like a beige plus size coat can elevate any look, so I usually start with one of those! To add some dimension to the outfit, I threw on a pair of plus size faux leather leggings. I kept my top simple with a beautiful plus size black sweater. Since I live in the city, I am usually walking around a lot so I topped this look off with my favorite Adidas sneakers! To elevate the look further, I usually throw on a cute designer handbag and a pair of statement sunglasses.
No matter where you are, I hope you keep your head up during this next month as we all grapple with COVID-19! XO
