Style Diaries | A Casual Cosy Outfit Of The Day

How amazing was the lull between Christmas and New Year?! Having lie-ins, not wearing any make up, eating all the Christmas chocolate and left over bubble and squeak… But the best part? Not having to ever get properly dressed. 

I lived in joggers and leggings, hoodies and oversized jumpers – the perfect post-Christmas attire. 

However, now that it is a new year, we’re back at work and have to do all of the normal boring things like going food shopping and have to act like real adults again. 

However, I missed dressing like a slob and feeling uber comfy, and so I raided my wardrobe for an acceptable outfit that I could wear out of the house, whilst remaining comfy and cosy. And this is what I came up with…

I love this cream, over-sized, loose knit cardigan and I have had it for years. It is so easy to throw on over the top of any outfit to give it that casual vibe. Plus, it definitely feels like I’m wearing a giant dressing gown whilst I’m out and about. It has almost bat-style, three-quarter sleeves which again gives a casual look. 

I decided to pair the cardi with an over-sized, black, tee-shirt dress. I picked this up from ASOS the year before last. It is seriously nothing special, but I think that any sort of black dress can act as an all round wardrobe staple as it is so universal. When paired with tights and heeled, black boots, this dress looks fairly classy, especially when I’ve put more effort into my hair and makeup. 

The pairing of the slightly classy black dress and the slouchy cardi creates the perfect comfy outfit that is acceptable to wear in front of the general public. And because everything is over-sized and baggy, it is the perfect cover-up for the Christmas-food-baby I have grown over the last two weeks!

What are you top fashion picks for this time of year?
