The Strictly star looked incredible in a tux

The star went on to explain the reasoning behind her change of look in an Instagram Live video about how clothes can affect our mood during lockdown.

She said: "What you wear does affect your mood and how you feeling. Because we're in this lockdown and we have a tendency to wear PJs all day, or put on the clothes that you threw on the floor the night before... 

"I feel like if you want to get things done, attack certain tasks, picking out your outfit in the morning, making it a part of your daily routine and getting out of those PJs is going to make you a lot more productive and motivated." Wise words! 


Janette says her lockdown outfits boost her mood

Janette has certainly been putting the focus on her sense of style. Last week, the dancer posted a professional shot of herself looking beautiful in black and white, adding another motivational caption.

"Monday. Motivated, determined, and ready to slay the day! #Monslay," she simply wrote, prompting plenty of followers to comment on the gorgeous photo.
