With the confining walls of quarantine closing in, it’s hard to find a sense of self–especially as students at a fashion school with “no reason” to get prim and proper. Self care, makeup and getting dressed , plus any any other parts that you used to include in your daily routine before going outside …oh, what that used to feel like… seem almost meaningless.
Those small aspects of our day that used to bring us comfort are still important when it comes to continuing to feel sane. With this, we have a new wave of fashion. Goodbye athleisure, hello bathleisure. Gone are the days of heavy glam, now we appreciate more natural and artistic looks. Comfy and cozy costumes meet fashionable ensembles. Now is the time to embrace the extra time we have on our hands and get creative!
The time you spend in the morning preparing yourself for the day can be therapeutic and prepare yourself for what lies ahead rather than feeling chained to your pillow all day. Self care of the mind and body have never been more important. Elizabeth Beecroft explained to Refinery 29 that “The way we dress has a correlation with our emotional state, If we’re looking a bit crusty, in the same outfit we’ve worn the last few days, that has an impact on how we feel either in general or about ourselves”. Essentially what works is faking it (motivation) until you make it (productivity).
With the increased use of the new #WFH, the time we have on our hands, and rising online shopping sales, it has never been easier to find inspiration and partake in the global spread of casual workwear. If there was ever a time to feel confident enough to try a new makeup tutorial, take a shot at the quarantine pillow challenge or shop a new look. Manifest your desires and have fun doing it rather than feeling motionless all day.
Here are some great looks to help you to both look and feel good, whether you are on a zoom call for class, or just lounging.
