    “During the lockdown, I wore my pyjama set time and again. I got it from an online shopping site a few months ago. It’s something I like a lot, so I keep wearing it.”

    “I bought a Uniqlo hoodie from Bangkok in 2016, perfect for the summers and monsoons, and even these days, with a bit of nip in the air. I’ve been using it to train, since we don’t have to travel. I use it on my way to the gym and during warm-ups too. I live in this through the day. It’s in navy blue, a colour I enjoy wearing since it makes me feel good. It’s wearing out given how often I washed it, but I feel comfortable in it.”

    “My cropped Adidas hoodie, which I got during a trip to Japan last year, is my current favourite, my constant companion through the pandemic. It’s super comfortable and fun. It’s got a large cow print on it, and it’s cropped as well, so not very warm. Just perfect to lounge at home.”

    “I have a lot of comfortable nightdresses, which I wore during the lockdown. I had bought them four years ago in Berlin.”

    “Though I try not to fall into a cycle of wearing the same outfit everyday, I do have my set of favourite track pants from Nike, which I pair with Marks & Spencer polo shirts. These get me into my relaxing zone, exactly what I need after a long day of work from home.”

    “I usually switch a lot of clothes. But I’ve been wearing a Louis Philippe T-shirt a lot recently. I got it just before my birthday last year. It’s a casual look, a light and elegant shade. I don’t usually buy casual T-shirts, but this one has been my go-to look for Instagram lives and YouTube videos.”
