How To Look Elegant At Home

How To Look Elegant At Home

Ladies, stop with a habit of wearing your ugliest
clothes just because you are home. Instead, I want you to look like this. My dear elegant ladies,
welcome back to another video. Today, I have a highly requested video for you. I know you want to know
how to look elegant at home and considering that we are
now quarantine ladies, this video is quite suitable.
First thing first ladies, I want you to go to your wardrobe after
this video and I want you to throw away everything with holes,
everything that’s worn out, everything that you bought in places like
H&M and then wore for about 10 years, everything that colors are washed out,
everything that’s old, nasty looking, everything
that looks very juvenile. Go take it by the hair and
just throw it away right now, not right now after the video.
We are elegant ladies. We’re grown-up ladies. We don’t know wear any cartoon
characters on the our home clothes. We don’t wear sweat pants.
We don’t wear Mickey Mouse. We don’t wear Betty Boop or Snoopy. We dress like adults and
adults don’t wear a worn out, ugly looking clothes. Adults take responsibility for their
appearance and then make an effort. I want you to also ask yourself
a very important question. How much time do you spend at home? Are you one of those who like me,
work from home and you actually spend a lot of time at home or are you those with a more
active lifestyle outside of your home? Meaning that you only use your apartment
or your house for sleeping mainly and maybe a few hours here and there. Why I’m asking you this is because this
is what’s going to make you understand, how much money you should be
investing in your home clothes. The more time you spend, the more money you should be
spending on your clothes at home. It’s funny how we have this thing in
our head that we spend a lot of money on the clothes that we go out in, like we can spend a thousand on a dress
but we can not spend $200 on a pair of really nice pajamas. Instead, we go
to maybe some fast fashion shops, get something really cheap for like
$10 and then we wear it year after year after year, even if
they have holes. Brilliant! Every household has its own dress code
and you have to understand that there is no etiquette for what you should be
wearing at home freely if you want to wear your rags at home,
you can do it. At home, etiquette
is not strict. We create our own dress code
and depending on your household, your household
will have its own rules. Maybe if you are a big family, then you might have
different dress code than somebody who just
lives with their partner. A good example
would be actually myself, I live with my partner so we have a
more relaxed address code at home. I can easily lounge around
in my pajamas, while if it’s like after
eight o’clock at night. But in a different household, you wouldn’t be wearing a pajama
at all to lounge around in as a family. You might have a bigger
family where actually, more loungewear would be
appropriate to wear when you’re watching TV
in the living room. So you need to understand
what is appropriate for you and what is appropriate
for your family. Set your own rules. But this video is really about you
elevating how you treat yourself at home, even though it’s behind closed doors, even if you live by yourself. I want you to step up your wardrobe
one notch because you are going to feel
more confident with yourself. You’re going to feel
much more feminine. That is probably the biggest plus of
this whole video and you’re going to feel better with your whole self as a result. How do we feel when we just let ourselves
go and don’t look after ourselves? We don’t feel good about ourselves. So that’s why it’s really important when
you spend so many hours in your home that you actually feel proud of yourself, proud of how you look and you passing
by the mirror and just like look at yourself a little extra time and feel, “hmmm, I look good, I feel good”. This is how I want you to
start living your life after this video. Ladies, I do have a free cheat sheet on
how you can look expensive on any budget. and download this free cheat sheet
because it’s going to help you elevate your wardrobe to the next level. So I’m going to divide
this in four parts. Now, the first part is about what
you wear as loungewear and what you wear
in what climate. The other part will be what you wear for
nighttime when you go to sleep and for what climate. So what is loungewear? Loungewear is what we wear when
we just lounge around the house. It could be things that we wear
during daytime. As an example, if I’m working from home and
maybe I want to feel comfortable, I will be wearing my loungewear.
This is definitely my go to outfit. I think it’s cute. I think it’s
casual and not too dress down, not to dressed up, perfect and you can actually even leave
your home like this if you need to run a quick errand. Or like I said, if you are in the bigger household where
you wouldn’t be lounging around in the pajamas, you would be wearing something
that is more like loungewear. One of the perks of living in a cold
climate is actually the loungewear that you can wear because one of the nicest
loungewear is to have like a really nice cashmere set. Oftentimes, if you want to look elegant
and expensive even at home, they should always be matching so
you buy always things in the set. So a nice gray or camel cashmere set,
definitely a good investment. Maybe you wear them with a nice pair
of cashmere socks. In the winter, even if you have central heating,
you might want to wear long trousers, long sleeves, and maybe not so
much shorts or dresses. However, you can wear
longer dresses if they’re knitted and you can also have
nice throw overs, like nice cardigans and such. I personally like to wear palazzo trousers
at home and those actually work for both cold and warm climate. Ladies, this is one of my favorite outfits
for casual lounging around at home. These trousers are made out of
silky satin material. Actually, these are quite affordable. They came from River Island and I bought
them many years ago and they still lasted. I think what’s important to think about
for loungewear in winter is that you can layer, you should definitely layer
with like cardigans and longer fabrics. And you don’t have to think that you
have to wear bulky sweaters and thick materials, not at all. You can layer many times with
thinner wool or cashmere, or even fabrics like modal or
viscose or jersey. You can see, it’s very light. It’s almost see-through, but it’s very comfortable when you wear it,
really lays nicely on the body. It’s very like stretchy and jersey-like. This is definitely something cozy to
wear at home and you can spend hours and hours in this, and just feel
very comfortable. Ultimately, it’s never that cold indoors even
if you don’t have central heating, but the trick is to wear long sleeves. So what about in warm weather? Well, here we really have to think
about the materials we’re wearing. In the warm weather, if you want
to look elegant and expensive, then wearing something like linen,
even though it gets a little bit wrinkly. But trust me, linen is a very sophisticated material
that I really think everybody should own something in that material. Very comfortable bleeds light, will definitely handle warm weather. I have a beautiful linen dress that I’m
eager to show you and this is such a good example of how you can look
feminine and chic, even at home. It’s still covering, it’s still feminine and this belt really
makes it very feminine because you can actually show your silhouette,
even though this is a loose dress. You don’t have to wear always trousers. You can actually wear a dress and
if you are in a warmer climate, definitely think about wearing
dresses. They can be longer, they can be shorter, but dresses really
make you feel feminine. As you can see, I’m wearing a dress right now and this
is actually a dress that I bought in Bali. The fabric is so nice.
Yes, I know it’s black. It’s not really my color, but when
I go back to Bali, I will buy more. The material is really nice.
It’s like a jersey viscose material. It’s very light and I wear
this in 30 degrees heat, so I know that this material
doesn’t make you feel that hot. Same goes for when you wear silk, even though silk is a tricky material
because it does get very wrinkly. But it does make you look elegant. I really think if you want to add that
little luxurious flavor to yourself when you are at home, when you
feel like you are $1 million, then definitely wear something with silk, even if it’s just a nice little
cami top or a nice little skirt. Treat yourself when you are home.
Don’t get lazy, don’t get comfortable, don’t put on the ugliest thing you own. I really don’t know who invented or
who programmed us to put on the worst clothes that we own at home.
What is the logic of that? I really don’t understand. Considering that if you are married or
in a relationship and you live with your partner, if he sees you wearing your rags,
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, Okay, this is a no go. I would never ever
dress like this at home. Do you think that’s going to elevate
your relationship to the next level? I don’t think so. On the
contrary, its going to kill it. So yes, you should be making
an effort. In warm whether, you can also wear longer trousers. So I would focus on having maybe
linen trousers, maybe modal trousers, but very, very light fabrics, fabrics
that breathe, jersey, viscose, that type of blends. I don’t like cotton so much because I think,
it’s easy to make cotton look washed out and not very expensive. I just think
that there are other better fabrics, but if you like cotton, then
go for cotton. So ladies, what should you wear for sleep? Again, you can lounge a little
bit in your sleepwear, let’s say you’re watching a
movie before going to bed. I personally think it’s absolutely fine
and that’s what we do in our household. So I like to put on a really nice
silk pajamas or a nice silk negligee, the beautiful matching robe on top.
Ladies, here I’m wearing the matching set, the robe, the shorts, the camisole, and these lace details really help
for the elegance and of course, the silk. I think definitely, you should be wearing silk as much as
possible because actually when you sleep, your body and your skin wrinkles a lot
as you press your body on the surface. So it’s really important to have silk
as a material in between you and the surface. Because silk actually
reduces the wrinkles on your body. That’s why I use silk pillow
cases as well when I sleep, because that will reduce
wrinkles in my face. Yes ladies, when you wake up in the morning,
your silky pajamas will be all wrinkly. There are some silks that wrinkle
less, but yes, as a common rule, you will get quite wrinkly.
But you know what? If you have one of these, then you will be fine. You can just steam your clothes
after you wear them or before, or maybe you have your housekeeper
can do it for you. With silk, I would always say, you can wear just something in full silk
or you can have a little bit of lace details. I think lace is very
attractive and very feminine, and men like it a lot.
If you don’t like silk, then go for other fabrics. You can definitely have cotton.
As long as it’s a matching set, then it looks good.
But when you start mix matching, that’s when you start risking it
looking less elegance and expensive. So they are not total man repeller. They might be quite attractive
if your partner likes it. I think it’s important to actually ask
your partner what he likes and doesn’t like on you. Because if you’re just wearing things
that you think you like or you think he likes, you might never know
and you might put him off. And that that can definitely have
an effect in your life and in your relationship. We don’t only dress for ourselves, we also dress for
attracting the opposite sex. Women are not a sex object just
because we like to be attractive to our significant other. Mind you, we
want them to be attractive too. So it’s a two way street. Now, I like pajamas a lot and
depending on your climate, you might be wearing different
pajamas different times of the year. So if you are in a cold climate, you definitely want to sleep maybe
long sleeves and long trouser pajamas. But if I have exactly the same shorts, then this pajama can
become a summer pajama. I just exchange the trousers
to this short. If you are in warm climate, then you might want to have shorter
sleeves and maybe sleep in silk shorts, instead of long pajama trousers. Ladies, I do recommend that you buy a pajama
one size bigger than your original size. I have done the mistake of buying pajamas
in my regular size and it just is not as comfortable as one size bigger.
And I think for pajamas, it’s absolutely fine if it’s
a little bit oversized. Also for warm weather, definitely nice negligee dresses, a little bit of lace detail,
silk if possible. Now ladies, this is not a party dress. This is a thing that you wear
at home to feel feminine, to feel elegant and to feel luxurious. And don’t forget your robe. The robe is so important and you should
have multiple ones, not only one. You can take any long dress or robe and
just wear it like a goddess at home. It gives you a lot of feminine
energy and lot of confidence. Have robe that matches your pajamas,
maybe they come as a set. But you don’t have to have a matching robe only.
You can actually mix and match, as long as they go somehow in
the same color. Now, ladies, be honest with me in
the comments section. What do you usually wear at home and
what are you going to invest in now? I want you to have a discussion there
and encourage each other to upgrade your home wardrobe
because that wardrobe is one of the most important
wardrobe you will have. Now ladies, I want
you to watch my next video, how to look elegant in summer.

  • Thank you for watching! What do you usually wear at home? Also, here's my video on how to look elegant in summer:

  • Sorry, but I do dress only for myself, and if my bf stops liking me because I like to be comfy at home then he is not the right person, actually, he is not even a man, and no, we cannot spend 1000$ in a dress, because we have minimal salary. This is not a hate comment, but I do not like the idea of girls believing that they need to be, maybe, uncomfortable at home to impress their partners, I clean the house, cook, do laundry etc, and I like to be comfortable while doing it 😐anyways, this is my opinion and what works for me, if that works for you ok.

  • From my birth i was thinking that wearing the ugliest old clothes i have is most logic thing in the world, so much that if i bought something new and comfortable enough i didnt wear it at home because new clothes is not for home. It is so hard for me to change perspective on this subject. But i realise that you are right, especially because i live with my husband now and that must be affecting our relationship if not right now then in the long run. Thank you Ana!

  • I've been waiting for this video. I am always curious to see what elegant people wear at home. It is so rarely talked about.

  • Hi!
    I really like and enjoy your videos.
    I was wondering if you could ever consider a video about lingerie. For example as in which brands you recommend that might not be that affordable but are good investment 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your content <3

  • I totally disagree with this video. Our home should always be our sanctuary. We spend so much time away from it dealing with the world. Most of Anna philosophy is primarily based on men but as a human psychologist some of the things Anna present are very difficult to maintain in the long run. I was actually directed to your site by one of my clients. Her story was truly heartbreaking and the fact that you are perpetuating the same thing that lead her down the road is truly sad. Ladies my advice to you is try to be your authentic self. A man will always be attracted to what they like. I have seen the most beautiful and elegant women been cheated and have their hearts broken by the women Anna refers to as trashy or not so elegant. If you wanted to change up your style or polish your life, simply do so without no motive

  • I’m so guilty 😨 I live in Philadelphia where 90% of people wear eagle 🦅 jerseys around the house and everywhere else 😂

  • Do you have any videos about athletic wear, or for moms who need to run a few errands in comfortable easy clothes???

    Pretty please 🙏

  • I am vividly self aware of my camouflage sweat pants and army socks (gift from an actual Canadian soldier) right now.

  • Thank you, Ana for the video and for reminding me that I am a woman who has an obligation to myself not to let me go. I work from home and have a dog that needs to walk several times a day.

    I live in Sweden and it is very cold long periods of the year and you prioritize warm clothes, mostly black, rather than nice ones. It's sad because it's not true. You can have warm and beautiful clothes at the same time as you say.
    There will be changes going forward in the way I dress at home. It will also be a mental transformation 🙂

  • Can u please do a how to look classy for teenagers" , I am 18 and i am trying to be more feminine but I dont know where to start 😣

  • OK. So I appreciate this video! I’m always looking to buy cute home clothes esp since I’m home 80% of the time raising kids. So I recently went shopping with that goal in mind, and I end up buying clothes to go out in because it so much easier to choose, dresses, jeans with nice tops. I just can’t get myself to wear those around the house. I end up cooking, cleaning, and changing diapers. I feel bad to wear those clothes and I wear my not very flattering home clothes. I wanna kick myself. Where can I find comfortable but cute lounge clothes. I also went to Nieman Marcus a while back with the idea to buy cute and comfie pjs. I invested money on pjs there that were horrible,, they’re so baggy the shirts and pants although soft just so flimsy I hate it. If I dress up at home I feel like I’m trying to hard and I wanna feel natural. I don’t even own one silky night gown. Poor hubby, and if I do start wearing them he may think I want something more lol and in reality I just wanna feel good and sexy again!!!

  • I assume everyone watching this has the following:
    * personal chef
    *dog walker
    Because if you are wearing the clothing shown, you are not doing much else.

  • Another good video❤️ . I need her to upload a video every day while we aren’t suppose to leave our homes. I need something to occupy my time! Lol.. Literally every night when I soak in a hot bath and relax. I always take that time to listen to one of her videos. I’m now ALL caught up. I just now realized that when I ran hot water in the bath getting ready to soak; I began scrolling looking for a video of hers that I haven’t saw yet. BUT I’ve seen them all now🤦‍♀️ oh my goodness what am I going to watch now 😭

  • "Ask your partner what he likes on you" THIS. This is it, ladies. You may be very surprised at his answer. Short story time.
    I wore camisoles and cute little things in lounge time and in bed with my ex (he's an ex for a reason, nothing to do with what I wore). One day I wore a pajama set that had been in my drawers for years, I only wore once or twice in bed alone way before we started getting serious. This set was made with extremely soft cotton but was a set of very basic pajamas. When I wore them one night in our bed he literally stopped and said to me "this is what I like. It is soft. It is so soft. Why don't you wear more things like this?" I was shocked. This set was something I never wore because, to me, it was not 'sexy' enough. But to him it meant everything. He liked it, he loved it. It was what HE loved and not what I THOUGHT he would love. From there on out I made sure to wear very soft and simple things to bed with him. He started touching me and my clothes all the time, started cuddling way more often, started to notice when I wore something new and soft. So when Anna says "ask what HE likes on you" it is the truth. Some men will like more sexy things and some men will like more modest but soft things. All men are different.
    I have not been with any other man intimately since my ex. Therapy and time is helping me, but when the time comes for me to be intimate with another man I will most certainly wear something soft and simple (not basic, but simple – there is a difference) and take it from there. When it gets more serious, I will ask him what he likes. End of story.

  • My goodness! YES! Merci, très chère! It is SO important. Sadly, many people think "why the effort, if I'm just staying home and expecting no visits?" The truth is, first of all, we should dress for ourselves, we deserve it as women who go through a lot in this world. THEN, looking attractive for a significant other comes after. How we feel inside is reflected externally. One's image says a lot. It's not about the most expensive item, but at least, look clean, fresh, feminine, effortlessly chic. You don't necessarily have to carry faux fur and a flapper hat with gloves and pearls all around you, (if it's your taste, be yourself, be happy!) but an effortless minimalist look goes a long way. How we carry ourselves can even affect us mentally. Our self esteem, confidence and self love can be in a very low level.
    It is important to look good at home, it even changes the energy around us and uplifts our mood. What if there's an emergency, An unexpected visit or a spontaneous errand to run? There will be no need to "go change" because we are ready. If you see yourself as a queen and a goddess, you will dress and portray yourself accordingly.

  • I want to always feel beautiful, comfortable and elegant even at home. because it makes me happy and classy and anyone who sees me beautiful and elegant certainly also comfortable and happy too. a good and positive aura will shine in the house.

  • Anna, can you recommend some brands or stores you recommend to find some of these pieces? Love this post!

  • I love being in pajamas or sweat pants at home all day/night long but my husband complains and worried that I'm depressed. I told him I'm just comfortable and happy when comfortable. But now I decided to wear regular clothes during the day… thanks to this video. He respects me more and have more sex when i look my best. Men are very visual. My husband said that what is attractive to him is the clothes i wear so this video is awesome. I agree that clothes affect our partner's respect towards us with what we wear at home too. My husband said what you wear is a measure of self respect. So life is too short and we should look our best all the time and have a more exciting relationship. I love you Anna. You are awesome inside and out… i truly admire your goal in life to share how to improve the quality of life. God bless you more. You inspire me so much to have a long good rich life which is the life God wants us to have.

  • Hello Anna, I would also like to know where you shop so I can start looking for more elegant home attire. Thank you.

  • Thank you for these details, totally agree with the fabric choices.
    I may go for bold colors or extraordinary cuts at home due to the convenience home ambiance, I create daring styles that don't match my outside fashion taste.

  • what i love about your channel is that you teach these things just how we were naturally taught about here in dubai, everything you mention, most of us actually do these things!!! Love your channel!!

  • Karl Lagerfeld: "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants.”

When I was 7 years old I once heard my older sister say “ I wouldn’t even take the trash out in that”… I knew what she meant and that always resonated with me. I never walk out my house or around my house with out looking pulled together. It just boost my spirits. I’ve been collecting beautiful lounge wear for the past two years and I can’t wait to come home from work and slip into some nice, which we all know we deserve. It doesn’t have to be expensive.

  • I would love your input regarding decor or styling an elegant home, bedroom, even simply a vanity, particularly spending so much time at home currently.

  • Where can we find these lounge wear pieces and night time outfits? Have any recommendations for affordable options?
