Thanks to lockdown the humble tracksuit and comfy co-ords have grown in popularity over the past year, and if you haven't already invest in one (or two) well, you are simply missing a trick as it turns out these casual pieces are what our wardrobes have been crying out for.

There is no denying that lockdown has made us take a long hard look at our wardrobes and style choices. The thought of wearing heels quite frankly fills us with uncomfortable dread, and loungewear has now become a vital part of our everyday dressing.

It's not just us who've had to adapt, celebrities such as Kelly Brook and model Rosie Huntington Whiteley have been spotted rocking a more casual vibe recently – and we're all over it!

Gorgeous model Kelly Brook was seen keeping her cool on the rainy London streets wearing a black quilted coat and grey tracksuit from F&F clothing. This was a very different look for the Heart Radio presenter who is much know for showing off her curves in feminine figure hugging styles.

Captioning the Instagram post "When it’s a go to work in a Tracksuit kind of Day," it seems Kelly, 41, has also embraced the loungewear as outerwear trend, and well who can blame her?

She stylishly teamed her trackie with chunky Grenson boots which were ideal for the wet weather, and a black cap. This is one outdoorsy look we can all jump on board with.

Another model who has the right idea is Rosie Huntington Whiteley who has been showing off the best of casual chic dressing.

Not only do we love the head-to-toe neutrals of this look – it always looks super expensive – we admire how she has cleverly mixed in smarter pieces to allow for an outfit that could slip seamlessly into any wardrobe.

Swapping in a tailored crombie coat instead of a puffer and a leather cross-body bag will give any tracksuit more grown up appeal.

In another outfit showcase Rosie won us over again with another look we want to take out of lockdown.

Again she takes a neutral lounge-set and pairs it with luxurious separates this time a cropped sheepskin-look coat (wear over shoulders for extra style points) and a Bottega Veneta padded shoulder bag.

You probably thought it was never acceptable to tuck in your leather knee high boots into you joggers either, but yes we can conclude Rosie just made this totally ok.

If you are in need of a few wardrobe updates that don't involve fitness gear, then all is not lost in the world of shopping. Who said you need major plans to warrant a treat this week?

These must-have staples are not just for lockdown, we'll be loving them for many years to come…

We suggest choosing neutral shades as they can be styled with minimal effort.

Why not take a leaf out of Rosie's book and style them with a smart coat, or if you are feeling brave tuck into a pair of leather boots.

Ribbed knit dress, H&M, £39.99 here

We've ditched uncomfortable dresses during lockdown, instead opting for looser styles or comfier fabrics like knits or jersey.

We're talking styles that elevate your every day loungewear without sacrificing on comfort, head to H&M for some classics that will stand the test of time.

We will be wearing, slightly unbuttoned with comfy leggings but there is no reason this won't become an everyday favourite when we are allowed back out again.

VB camel cap, Reebok, £50 here

Caps; love them or loathe them there is no denying the 00's trend is back with a-vengeance.

We didn't think we could be swayed into wearing one again but Rosie Huntington Whiteley's dreamy lockdown wardrobe has convinced us caps are a great idea.

Choose simple styles in cream, black or camel which will work with countless looks from, blazers to your cool-girl sweaters.

Trainers with chunky sole, La Redoute were £48, now, £28.80 here

One item every Fashion Editor and celebrity owns these days is the fashion trainer.

They became a faithful staple before the country was put into lockdown and now we love them even more.

If you are yet to invest you can find some corkers in the January sales, again try neutral tones or black as they will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe.

Lace up track sole boots, Mango, £59.99 here

If on the other hand you are tired on wearing trainers and you haven't bought a pair already then adopt a pair of chunky black boots.

Before lockdown we were wearing with floaty dresses and skirts but they look surprisingly good with trackies too – as seen on Kelly Brook.

Grenson styles will cost you around £300, so we have found a cheaper alternative that'll do just the trick.

Pale Grey oversized hoodie, New Look, £17.99 here

As well as stocking up on sweaters, the hoodie has also become a staple item in our wardrobe that we won't be getting rid of post-lockdown.

Think of them as a key layering piece, giving a casual edge when worn under tailored coats, blazers or with satin skirts.

For only £17.99 we will be buying these in a few colour-ways.
