An evening out might be off the cards, but cosying up with your other half at home can be just as romantic. Amy Norbury checks out some luxurious options for lounging around
Dressing up for date night is so 2019. Valentine’s Day in lockdown means putting on your gladrags and hitting the town for a swanky dinner and cocktails for two just isn’t on the agenda. But the bonus of not leaving the house is that restrictive dresses and vertiginous heels can stay in the wardrobe. Getting dressed up lockdown-style means opting for a more stylish take on your trusty PJs.
And nightwear has well and truly had a luxurious makeover in recent times. Gone are the shapeless T-shirts and baggy jogging bottoms, firmly eschewed in favour of classically cut pyjama shirts and trousers or slinky camis teamed with shorts.
Luxury brands have honed in on the nightwear market, offering on-trend options which combine comfort with style.
And when it comes to creating cosy vibes for your lockdown lounging, fabric is key. Look out for super soft cottons, buttery satin and slinky jerseys which scream ‘cosy up’ or get seriously snuggly in quality cashmere. It’s a treat to slip into – and out of.
Bold, playful prints are the order of the day, so make a style statement in beautiful blooms and exotic jungle motifs, or opt for a laid back vibe in classic plaid.
Celestial prints are another firm favourite, perfect for channelling a relaxing night.
