Kmart has won the isolation fashion game, dropping the work from home set Aussie ladies have been waiting for.

The budget retailer took to social media to promote a look that can only be described as 2020 chic and is perfect for many people’s new working arrangements that allow for comfort to take centre stage.

A matching loungewear set, the Textured Drop Shoulder Top and Wide Leg Pants retail for just $15 apiece, $30 for the set, and have proven to be a smash hit among fans.

The flowing, comfortable top and pants come in a washed off-white colour, speckled with black dots that create an elegant and modern feel, giving the relaxed set a stylish edge.

Available in extra-small to size 24, the set will service most ladies, and it looks like most ladies are eager to get their hands on a pair.

A number of bloggers came in way ahead of the trend, rocking the set since March though only recently have they piqued hundred’s of women’s interest.

Kiwi blogger and mum Mandy Dent styled the almost-PJ’s with sleek sunglasses and a black cross-body bag to turn the loungewear into a statement look.

Meanwhile, Tasmanian mum Claire who goes by The Kmart Lover on Instagram gave the top a subtle french tuck, turning the slouchy set into a fashionable head-turner.

Aussie ladies ecstatic over new ‘essential uniform’

Aussies ladies have flooded social media with praise for the look, sharing their love of the set, or heir desire to pick up one of their own.

“Got those pants,” one woman wrote on Kmarts post. “Love them, amazing Kmart.”

“These are the most comfy track pants I own,” another shared.

“I might need this,” one lady wrote, describing the pair as her new ‘essential uniform’ under the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Wow I need these for iso [isolation] life,” another agreed.

In a tragic twist, however, the pants do not appear to be available online, though the top can still be found, for now.

With no end to the lockdown in sight, looks like you might want to replace your blazers with the latest in workplace and semi-formal attire.

It’s not the first item to bolt from shelves as people settle in for what could be a months-long at-home stint.

After at-home workout materials sold out in popular stores such as rebel and Target, Bunnings stepped in with a brand new range that is keeping Aussies in shape but is threatening to sell out as quickly as the original stores did.
