3 Looks to Make Your Household Chores More Fun

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

Mrs Hinch may have taught us how to clean, but right now we’re thinking about how to dress up to make your household chores a little bit extra.

In times like these, we all need a little cheering up and what better way to spark a smile at home than by putting on your favourite dress, a cute pair of heels and a little make-up. This Friday we will be dressing up for ourselves while doing the housework. Tongue planted firmly in cheek, of course.

1. Taking Care of Business… and the Ironing

The ideal outfit for when you have kids to feed and work to do… plus the chores need completing as well. The tailored shorts suit is a perfect wardrobe addition for a new season suit update. Style it together with a simple white tee or wear the pieces separately. Wear the blazer with mom jeans and block heels for something a little more dressed up. Or style your tailored shorts with an oversized boyfriend tee and sneakers for a more laid back look. Wine optional.

2. Bathroom Blitz in a Puff Sleeve Dress

Keep the magic alive during lockdown with a stay at home date night – there’s no reason not to dress up for that special person in your life. Pick a cute dress, dress it up with heels or keep it cool with lace-up boots and add a little touch of something extra – like statement earrings or a dainty necklace. Oh wait, it’s 6:55pm! 5 minutes till your date night – no worries… effortlessly remove those rubber gloves and add a spritz of your favourite perfume and you’re good to go.

3. Multi-Tasking in a Bodysuit

When it’s girls night but you still have your washing to sort out… but it’s ok because you’re already dressed up and they never gonna know because you can simply hide your washing line behind your laptop screen (the joys of virtual catchups). For a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired look, team this adorable bow bodysuit with a pair of ripped mom jeans, a 90s chain belt and lilac heels. Pairs well with Cosmopolitans and girly gossip.
