Models-off-duty: it’s time to embrace the loungewear uniform

If an extended home-stay is on the cards, make like Kaia and Gisele and embrace the ultimate model-off-duty loungewear uniform.

“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” - Jane Austen.

It’s the year 2020 and social distancing, along with at self-quarantine, is the new normal. More and more we are urged to work from home (WFH), keep a one-metre distance from others, refrain from touching our faces, wash our hands rigorously, wipe all surfaces and disinfectant everything.

Once upon a time, most humans would have relished the fact they could stay home, indoors, for the long haul with Netflix, a good book, an interesting podcast and your loved ones. However, once it becomes forced, a twinge of resentment also comes into play. The small joys that bunkering down bring suddenly dissipate when we don't have a say in it. And without any clear end in sight, we're preparing for anything.

In the spirit of keeping safe and making smart decisions, we rounded up our favourite muses and their real time model-off-duty loungewear style. Sweats, baggy tees, cosy knits and comfy underwear. From Gigi to Imann to Alexa, choose your lock-down wardrobe wisely. Comfort is key during solitude.
