From formal attire to casual looks, how celebrities are styling lockdown fashion

From formal attire to casual looks, how celebrities are styling lockdown fashion

With no parties or red carpet events to attend, celebrities have found themselves confined to their homes.

It’s a strange time for fashion, with most of us forgetting what jeans feel like and reverting back to the same tracksuit every day. While some celebs have been pulling out some of the flashier outfits from their wardrobes, most have been revelling in loungewear.

Here’s how famous faces have been styling their time in quarantine – and obviously posting about it on Instagram, because what else do you do when you’ve got so much time on your hands?

Dressing up…

Even though Amanda Holden might be taking the bins out instead of walking the red carpet, she’s still going to do so in style in a pink gown and vertiginous high heels.

We’re not sure Mariah Carey has ever dressed down in her life, so it’s unsurprising she spent her birthday in isolation in something suitably glam: a black mesh and glitter outfit, with full hair and make-up. Considering it’s an effort for the rest of us to actually wash our hair semi-regularly, you can’t help but be impressed by Carey.

Designer Marc Jacobs knows full well the power of a good outfit, as he’s been donning his finest clothes when feeling “down and out”. For this mood-boosting look, Jacobs picked out a teal leather jacket, silver high heels and a string of pearls to top off the look.

Isolation means most of us have been wearing our baggiest, comfiest clothes, but not Laverne Cox – who’s instead been playing dress-up in some major bodysuits and dancing for the camera.

We don’t really see Lady Gaga as a jogging bottoms kind of person – wearing a studded leather jacket and sunglasses inside seems to make a lot more sense.

Dressing down…

Despite the odd few who are actually getting dressed up, most celebrities have settled nicely into the loungewear lifestyle – like Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who have been modelling various combinations of tracksuits, leggings and hoodies.

Hailey Bieber seems to have forgotten about trousers entirely, instead sticking to an oversized t-shirt – although chances are it’s a whole lot fancier than the old t-shirts the rest of us are wearing.

Even supermodels aren’t bothering with fashion-forward outfits – take Kaia Gerber, who’s been sporting a wide array of tracksuit tops and trousers. If you’re going to spend all day at home, why not be as comfortable as possible?

The same goes for Emily Ratajkowski, who shows the cool girl way to do loungewear is with cropped tops and a drink in hand at all times.

The infinitely relatable Chrissy Teigen has let go of clothes entirely in lieu of a towel. Why bother with underwear anyway?

A post shared by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on

While we do think it’s slightly insane Jessica Alba would choose to wear jeans indoors when she doesn’t have to, we can’t deny her cardigan situation looks cosy and cute.

Just embracing it now really

A post shared by Kate Beckinsale (@katebeckinsale) on

And then there’s Kate Beckinsale, who inexplicably dressed in activewear with make-up like a cat to do some cleaning. We’re not entirely sure why, but we do know that isolation has also made us feel a bit like this too.
