Many of of you are at home more than usual at the moment. So, now, more than ever, having a closet with plenty of comfy clothes options is a good idea.

Comfy clothes can be stylish too!

While you can stay all day in your pajamas if you wish, you’re likely to want to look and feel more put together than that. But, don’t worry, you don’t need to dig your underwired bra out from the bottom of your closet just yet, or wear anything uncomfortable.

You can stay comfortable but still look stylish and polished, whether you’re working from home or even if you’re just watching Netflix or sitting down with a good book. I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom to bring you a comfy clothing capsule of Nordstrom Made clothing that will see your through winter and beyond.

What you might like to include in your comfy clothing capsule closet

If you’re looking in your closet at the moment and feeling that you don’t have enough comfy, casual clothes to suit your lifestyle, there are some factors you may want to think about when choosing your comfortable clothes to wear at home.

Soft fabrics

First of all, the fabric you choose is important. You’ll want to make sure it feels good to wear and doesn’t restrict you in any way. Think about cozy knitwear, jersey, modal, bamboo and lycra.

Trendy touches

Even though you’re choosing comfy clothes, that doesn’t mean they can’t be on-trend. Look for touches such as on-trend prints and colors, asymmetry or draping.

Elasticated or tie waistbands

While relaxing at home, you’re unlikely to want restrictive button closures or anything too-tight around your waist. Instead, look at waistbands that tie or feature elastic.

Comfy underwear

There’s no point in the rest of your outfit being super comfortable if your underwear is making you feed uncomfortable. You may, for example, prefer full-coverage panties rather than thongs, or bralets rather than underwired bras.

A comfy clothes capsule wardrobe

Let’s take a look at some of the tops, bottoms and accessories you might want to include in a comfy capsule for the upcoming months.

Comfy tops

When choosing tops, you’ll want a relaxed t-shirt as well as some cozy sweaters to wear when the weather turns cold. You could choose draping or a wrap top to elevate your style.

Outerwear (just in case you need to leave the house)

Of course, you’re unlikely to stay at home 24/7 unless you really have to. If you are popping out to run errands, you could think about adding a wrap coat, a moto jacket or a long cardigan over your outfit.

If you need to raise your style game, a blazer will add instant smartness to even the most casual of looks.

Comfy jeans and pants

When relaxing at home, a pair of stretch leggings or a tie-waist top is the perfect option to choose to stay comfortable. You could also opt for a pair of utility pants or jeans, so long as the waistband doesn’t dig in at all.

Comfy dresses and skirts

You’re likely to choose leggings or jeans for casual days, but that doesn’t mean you should discount the option of a dress, skirt, or perhaps a jumpsuit.

Choose stretchy options, such as sweater dresses rather than anything too restrictive and fitted.

Comfy shoes

You can go barefoot if you wish. But, you may find your feet get too cold, or you may need arch support even though you’re at home.

Choose a pair of slippers, or you could add sneakers or ankle boots to your look if you’ll be heading out during the day.

Comfy accessories

A scarf can keep you warm and help you to feel cozy whether at home or outside. If you are heading out, you may like to take a tote bag or a crossbody with you to fit your essentials in, while a hat will stop heat from escaping on cold days.

If you don’t feel fully dressed without your accessories, you could add a pair of stud earrings or small hoops.

What to wear underneath your comfy outfits

To stay warm, and comfortable, you’ll also want to think about what you wear under your clothes. You could wear a sports bra or bralet rather than an underwired bra. A camisole, vest or bodysuit will help to add warmth.
