What do a sweatshirt, leggings, white tee and hoodie all have in common? Supreme versatility, whether you’re doing a spot of morning yoga on the floor of your lounge or throwing together a last-minute professional look for an important video call meeting... on your couch. Using one sportswear item, we turned to Superbalist HQ to see how some of our style-savvy dressers are smartening up their looks or toning it down to relax at home.

“As the evening weather changes, I like to swap out my cycling shorts for some leggings, paired with the same white tee. It's my go-to EOD ensemble.”

LOOK 1: Just add a kimono
“Mornings are my favourite. I like to throw on my kimono, which is perfect for swanning around the house doing chores.”

LOOK 2: Just add a shirt
“Business at the top and comfort at the bottom. The best outfit for looking sharp in video meetings on the couch.”

LOOK 3: Just add a chunky sweater
“A TV-series session calls for comfort. Nothing better than a chunky sweater and socks to get nice and snuggled up.”

LOOK 1: Morning meditation and coffee

“Comfortability is key! I've paired my Superbalist hoodie with a basic cotton cycle short.”

LOOK 2: And the category is social distancing – WFH edition

“I've paired the same hoodie with my fave pinstripe wide legs. I love throwing on a hat to hide sometimes dirty or unruly hair or to give the look some personality.”

LOOK 3: After-hours virtual coffee-and-cake date

“The hoodie with a classic grey adidas 3-stripe legging, oversized white shirt and Birks for comfort. Once again, always here for dramatic headgear.”
