From 2020 to 2021, it’s been a transformative year in all aspects. When it comes to fashion and styling, comfort is now the foremost need. Starting off with pyjamas, sweatpants, and slippers, we were all clueless on how work from home life works. With an extensive experience of staying at home, some of us are now clear about what we want the most – COMFORT! Now that we’ve started to go out, it is what we want to wear In & Out.
It is beyond our understanding how we even slipped into those restrictive clothes and go through 9 long hours of work. Currently, we crave breezy clothes, no matter where we are. However, when we go out, we all want to look stylish. The question on everyone’s lips is that how can we have something that falls in between these two?
Let’s find out what styles would fall in the ‘comfort zone’ with a bit of dress up and down!
1. Pleasing The Tees
This one staple piece was mostly limited to our homes. In the pre-pandemic era, when we headed out, we picked out the best blouse, style it, and get some pictures of our outings for our social grid. But with the habit of staying in, we are used to wearing summer knits and wovens, we are never letting these go. We have ignored our amazing tees all these years and now it’s time to make up for the lost time and please our tees.
You can lounge around by pairing these tees with a pair of functional skorts and style them up with comfortable pants to head out for all your social dos. These comfort-driven tees prove that they love our bodies the most as they help us survive the heat waves of summer even when you plan to read a book out in the sun.

2. Replacing The Jeans
Did you dump your jeans too? Guilty, not guilty! Initially, the staple for the outside world was either jeans or trousers. But guess what? We don’t plan to go back to our old habits. For us, now it is either about culottes, wide-legged pants, or any bottom that lets our skin breathe, doesn’t stick to our body and allows us to move freely through the day – inside and outside.
When we sit at home for our WFH session or even when we head to the office for a few days a week, we want our lives to be easier. Such bottoms help us do that, don’t they? Switch from a basic tee to a floral top and your look would be elevated in an instant.

3. Falling For Dresses
Our love for dresses has been eternal. But who would have thought that these classic pieces would become suitable to wear at home? Rather than creating a look with a bottom and a top, it’s always easier to pull off a look with one-piece wonders – after all, less is always more. And the In & Out looks get more comfortable when we have knit dresses by our side.

4. Stepping Into Shorts
Have summers at home trained you to be in your shorts 24/7 too? Work, errand run, sports, anything would be better in our beloved shorts. We know how absurd it sounds when we mention wearing shorts to work but workwear has evolved to an extent that all workdays will be casual Fridays for us. And our range of pleated shorts is just a kickstart to this new dress code.
Stepping out to cycle or just staying in to chill with your plants, it’s all more fun in shorts! Swap the tee with a breathable top and style your hair and give them a clean look and add on the footwear that suits the occasion and you will be all set to step out in shorts.

5. Adding The Flare
Aren’t we all bored of just staying in our basic clothing? Spending a massive amount of time in lockdown, we are now leaving no chance to dress up and pleated skirts do that for us. It’s a piece that will give you a break from monotonous clothing that you have been wearing all day long. Breezy, comfortable, stylish, and oh-so-gorgeous pieces – These will take you through your day with a dose of style and fun, all at once.
