Wardrobe Hibernation

“Fire, blankets, your arms,
They all bring warmth to my cold self.
Fire too hot to touch, blankets wrap me up,
Comfy, cosy, your arms, home.”
~ Michele M Diaz
I was curled up on the sofa reading a fashion magazine, when my eyes were drawn to a big, bold headline; ‘Get Ready For Wardrobe Hibernation Mode’ it stated, and I shuddered at the very thought. But then it slowly dawned on me; I was already there. I was sitting on the sofa wearing sweatpants, a slouchy top, and sneakers. I am slap bang in the middle of Wardrobe Hibernation right now, and do you know what? It’s bloody wonderful! The evenings are darker, the temperatures have plummeted, so who on earth wants to chill out at home in fancy clobber and high heels? The fashion pack are slipping into the cosiest, most comfortable, off-duty-wear, and they’ve never looked more cute.

Amsterdam based label Zoe Karssen, with its irreverent twist on leisurewear, is the leader of the pack where laid back casual cool is concerned. Set up in 2010, the Brand captures a pop-culture aesthetic and a rock and roll edge with its easy-to-wear tops and sweatpants, outspoken graphics, and lively lettering.

This long sleeved top is cut with a classic crew neckline and accented with funky green leopard print sleeves. Featuring an eye-catching 'Live Wild, Flower Child’ slogan to the front, this piece is the perfect match for the black, slouchy sweatpants with their sparkling green lurex cuffs and bold stripe detail to each side.

I finished off my Hibernation mode look with a pair of classic Golden Goose sneakers. Casual, cool, and artfully distressed, they have the look of an old favorite with none of the wear. I feel so comfortable I might never come out of wardrobe hibernation!
