It’s tempting to just lie around in trackies when you don’t have to go anywhere.
But comfy doesn’t have to mean sloppy. Making an effort can help you feel a bit more put-together and less like an amorphous blob becoming part of the sofa.
We’ve rounded up some products to help you looking and feeling your best without doing the most.
The ‘Crocs X Justin Bieber with drew’ Classic Clog, £54.99, Crocs
Yes, it may not be the season. And, yes, they are ugly. But stop the press: Crocs fan Justin Bieber has designed his own unisex pair of the classic clog and despite being a garish shade of yellow, we feel they’ll look great with socks.
They come with ‘eight custom Jibbitz™ charms designed to match his good vibes and laid-back style’.
‘Knockers’ Grip, £16.99, Popsocket
Naughty pictures of boobs are funny but dropping your phone isn’t.
Happily, the former is designed to protect you from the latter, with PopSockets’ new ‘Knockers’ grip helping you keep a handle on your phone and donating to Coppafeel while you’re at it.
James Read Rose Glow Self Tan Mist, £18, QVC
If you’re in need of a little pick-me-up now the summer of 2020 is firmly behind us, try tanning supremo James Read’s Rose Glow Face Tan Mist.
It’s infused with organic rose water enriched with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and witch hazel.
Bobbi Brown Real Nudes Collection, £25, John Lewis
Masks aren’t particularly conducive to the wearing of dark statement lipsticks so thank heaven for the Bobbi Brown real nudes collection, co-created with women ‘to produce true nudes for all skin tones’.
Infused with Vitamins E & C and beeswax, it has a satin matte finish to hydrate lips.
Kefir Water, £15.80 for four, Aquamadre
Good health starts in the gut, which works to support our immune system. Agua De Madre is a water kefir and contains 55 billion live cultures to make tummies happy.
Best of all, it tastes delicious – try their two new flavours, Elderflower & Apple and Passionfruit & Raspberry.
Tote Bag, £245, Arddun Stores
The new Arddun Stores concession at Harvey Nichols is a stylish edit of global independent labels from the worlds of lifestyle, fashion and beauty.
They’re also the only stockist in the UK for The Regular, a brand that celebrates traditional and artisan craft, made in the UK. Their Quilt Tote bag is lightweight and practical.
Leather gloves, £49, Mabel Sheppard
We’re quite excited for gloves season now we’ve discovered Mabel Sheppard’s ultra soft nappa leather creations, which have a cosy fleece lining.
A particular favourite are these black ones featuring applique eyes and a knitted lurex cuff to keep wrists warm. The perfect gift – even for yourself.
Handmade cards, £4.50 Etsy
Putting a positive spin on the plastic that lands on the shores of the River Thames is Washed Up Cards, a small business started during the pandemic by Flora Blathwayt.
By using the detritus she finds to create super-cute greeting cards, she aims to spread awareness of plastic pollution in a positive, feel-good way.
