Host Weekly Challenge: Week 5

We’re into week six of lockdown and going about our normal, day-to-day activities seems like a lifetime ago. If like us, by now, you’ve probably fallen into a new routine.

You might have changed the time you wake up and the time you go to bed, you probably have more time to cook different meals, your video call usage might have increased, and your exercises regime is likely to have changed too.

But besides all of that, one thing we’ve noticed a big difference in, is the clothes we’re wearing. There’s been no getting dressed up for those big nights out with our friends, or the Sunday lunches out with our family, and no special occasions like weddings to get dolled up for.

So, if you’re missing putting your glad rags on, you might just want to take note of our latest challenge.

Week 5: The 50 Layers Challenge

It’s time to open your wardrobe, delve into your drawers, and dig out your clothes ready to take on our 50 Layers Challenge.

The challenge itself is simple. You must try and put on as many layers of clothes as you can – aiming for 50 different layers. Whether it’s t-shirts, shorts, dresses, trousers, socks and even your hats and scarves, it’s time to get layering.

And if you’re still not sure how this might look, think Joey from Friends…


Win with Host: how many layers can you put on?

After pulling your wardrobe apart to throw on as many layers as possible, you may be wanting some new clothes. You might have noticed some of your clothes are old and worn, or perhaps they don’t fit so well anymore, or maybe you just fancy a new look.

Well, if you’d like to splash out on something new to brighten your wardrobe, you’re in luck!

All you have to do is attempt our 50 Layers Challenge and get as many clothes on as possible. The person with the most layers and the best attempt will WIN A £50 GIFT CARD TO SPEND AT ASOS!

You’ll need to take a photo or video of your end result and then head to our Facebook or Instagram page and follow the instructions on the post relating to this challenge.

So, for probably the first time in weeks, it’s time to get dressed up!
