Choosing comfortable clothing to wear at home isn’t as difficult as selecting an outfit when heading to the office. COVID-19 has forced many people to work from home. The only challenge people have is selecting outfits that make them feel comfortable while at home. If you don’t have any comfortable outfits, then you better upgrade your wardrobe.
Here are four types of comfortable clothing to wear during the COVID-19 lockdown.
1. Shirts And Sweatshirts

Shirts and sweatshirts are probably the most popular outfits to wear at home. If the temperature is not so low, you can simply have a shirt on and still feel comfortable. They are light, breathable, and soft, especially if you choose those that are made of cotton. The greatest advantage of cotton shirts and sweatshirts is that they don’t easily warp or shrink even after several washes.
Since you’ll be at home, you may not even be bothered about ironing them. They will still look neat and smart. This means you’ will not have to worry, even if you have an emergency video call from your boss.
Another advantage of shirts is that you have the option of choosing either the long-sleeved or the short-sleeved design.
2. Lounge shorts and pants
Lounge shorts or pants are what most people wear 90% of the time they are at home. They are durable. Just having two or three pairs is enough to last you for many years.
The shorts are perfect for summer, and they are exceptionally comfortable. They look smart and slim and it is a plus if they have deep pockets where you can keep a few items you might need urgently. If you want to have a walk along the streets, you can choose brightly colored loungewear so drivers will notice. You can also put them on when you are going to play some games or just to stretch your tired bones.
The lounge pants are good in winter or evening hours when the temperature is low. Both the lounge shorts and pants are stretchy and comfy, which means they fit you well. You can choose the ones made of recycled polyester. They are wrinkle-resistant, breathable, and quick-drying.
3. Sweat Pants
Sweat pants are very comfortable to wear at home. They are mostly preferred by joggers but can be worn by anyone. During this lockdown, when people are encouraged to exercise at home, it would help if you are in sweat pants.
The greatest advantage of sweat pants is they can help you burn calories. They do this by increasing your body temperature, causing your body to feel hot so you can sweat quickly. As you sweat, you wouldn’t want to walk around with sweat on your legs. The pants will wick away the moisture quickly to leave you feeling dry, cool, and comfortable.
Not only that, but sweat pants will also protect your skin from the sun’s rays, thus protecting you from sunburn. Wearing them means you will save on sunscreen. If you are taking a walk in a bushy environment, the pants will protect your legs from nasty bites from insects and pricks from thorny bushes.
The popularity of wearing t-shirts at home need not be overemphasized. T-shirts are a must when choosing comfortable clothing. These outfits are super-comfortable. Whether you choose the crew neck t-shirt, the pique t-shirt, or the polo-collar t-shirt, all will have the same comfort level.
The only difference would come in choosing the one you would wear when it is cold. In that case, the polo collar t-shirts would serve you better. Many people like t-shirts made of 100% cotton. Cotton is particularly preferred in humid and hot climates because it is breathable, absorbent, and soft.
Cotton t-shirts are known for their cooling properties, so having them on allows your body to dissipate heat, making you feel comfortable. They also come in different sizes so you can choose one that gives your body a breathing space. That aside, t-shirts also come in different designs, with some being plain while others have graphics or images printed on them. All these provide you with a big pool to choose from.
One other advantage of t-shirts is that you can wear them anywhere at any time, whether you are at home or on the road jogging or at the gym, sweating it out.
While at home, you are free to wear anything that can make you feel comfortable. Apart from clothes, you can also think about other accessories like beanies, scarves, hats, shoes, and even gloves. You may have missed these accessories while you were going to work, but now you have the freedom to try them out.
When it comes to footwear, many people prefer sandals. Sandals are great because they allow your feet to breathe, and you just need to slip them on. However, if you have to go out, you can wear light rubber shoes or snickers.
Wrapping It Up
There are many types of clothes you can wear at home. The best part of it is that you’ll have the freedom to choose whatever you want to put on, whether or not they match. What matters while you are at home is your comfort.
When it is hot, choose light attire, and when it is cold, wear warm attire. If your work from home program involves video conferencing, you can choose clothes that befit such video conferencing sessions. Choosing comfortable clothing while working from home will make you feel so much better during the COVID-19 lock-down.
