With an Aussie television favourite like Home and Away continuing to deliver us the goods each evening, isolation definitely seems slightly more bearable.

That said, with all this extra time on our hands, we’ve never craved content more – and lucky for us, the stars of the iconic soap are serving up the goods for us from their own homes – though not in the way you’d expect.

Filming for the Palm Beach-based show has been temporarily suspended as social distancing rules are enacted across the country to stop the spread of COVID-19.

So with a little more down time to connect with their fans, we’re seeing some of the cast utilise another talent – a knack for styling themselves in loungewear, and indirectly serving up fashion inspiration a-plenty.

Of course, being at home all day doesn’t exactly motivate us to go all out in the wardrobe department, but with Zoom calls and FaceTime chats rife, as well as our own desire to retain a sense of normality, we’re happy to mix things up and try our hand at some at-home chic.

So if you’re after some ideas, inspiration, or even wanting a good old gander at what some of the show’s stars have been up to in isolation, keep scrolling – we’ve got the low down on how to recreate their looks without breaking the bank.


Penny McNamee

As for those shorts, we’re super into the above Nique culotte style which are great for isolation now, and post isolation later… $29, buy it online here.
