Four cosy (but not frumpy) looks.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I kicked off my new Style Sunday content yesterday. You get to choose the weekly theme and I recommend four different ideas and style picks based on that – for both your wardrobe and your home.

First up for your wardrobe is your ask for cosy, comfortable but stylish outfits (that don’t make you feel frumpy).

I don’t need to know the entire plot twist for 2021, I mean, none of us have any way of knowing. But if you want to know how to level up your look (and therefore how you feel), read on.

Your four style picks

1. Co-ords

If 2020 had a look, it would be an elasticated waistband but, if you’re on the same pattern of thinking and feeling as me, you’re ready to level up.

Take last years joggers and hoodies, cardis and leggings and wear them head-to-toe on purpose.

Switch out:

  • Greying pants
  • Top knots
  • Tired bobbled fabrics
  • Eye bags
  • Socks

Level up by adding:

  • Sparkly earrings
  • A blow-dry
  • Soft-to-the-touch fabrics
  • Lip gloss
  • Hiker boots

These little details would make you look and feel more glam than glum.

Lip gloss and earrings glam up a hoody
(and they’re here to stay).

My current favourites

This Womens Olly Cashmere Blend Slim Cuffed Joggers set by AllSaints, from £229

This lilac joggers and boxy hoodie set from George at Asda, £36

This Dillon mini skirt with matching cardi by Dancing Leopard, from £30

2. Sweater Dresses

I’m a little bit in love with sweater dresses, hoodie dresses and jumper dresses. They’re cosy and so incredibly versatile.

Keep it casual by:

  • Teaming with high-tops and sports socks
  • Or hiker boots and spotty or coloured tights
  • Wear your hair loose and messy – yay

Glam it up by:

  • Wearing sheer tights and knee-high or over-the/knee boots
  • Adding a belt to add more shape
  • Donning massive earrings
Sweater dresses

My current favourites

This oversized mini hoodie dress by ASOS, £18

This Yvie sweater dress by Hush, £45 in the sale.

3. All-in-ones

It doesn’t get any more cosy cool than an all-in-one. No, not a onesie guys, you’ve got shit to do this year. Think jumpsuits, dungarees and what the fashion pack call loungewear.

Go for neutrals and add brighter colours and prints through accessories and layering. You don’t want to look like a Clown…or maybe you do. In which case, choose the unicorn printed ones.


My current favourites

‘The Organic Original’ Corduroy Dungarees in Charcoal Black by Lucy & Yak, £54

This Evelyn Jumpsuit by People Tree, £85.

4. Luxe fabrics

This is my favourite look of them all and what I personally opt for most of the time. It easy when you know how – all you need to do is consider the fabric of the thing you’re wearing. So if it’s leggings and a jumper you like – opt for ethically sourced cashmere and silk (yes, there is such a thing), soft and touchable recycled and eco-friendly fabrics like cotton and vinyl.

Level up with these ideas

  • Choose quality wet look leggings with longevity over horrid jersey that bobbles after one wash and goes into landfill!
  • Re-use all your summer camis and team with fluffy cardis for winter
  • Layer up your necklaces for a boho look – don’t be afraid to mix metals. Silver, gold and rose gold make a statement when worn at once and add luxe detail to any top
  • Buy a size up in jumpers and pull it off one shoulder. This looks cosy but sexy all at once.
