Since we’ve taken a break from saving outfits for special occasions, we’re re-discovering the joy of dressing up for ourselves. Now, more than ever, it’s important to find the simple bliss of everyday moments, and one of the ways we’re doing that is through our personal style.
There are a few key pieces in my wardrobe – mainly dresses and jewellery – that I find myself wearing when I need a little help staying positive, and I got in touch with five of my favourite fashion editors to share the clothing and accessories that are lifting their moods in lockdown.
Style is a great form of self care through personal expression. It gives us both a sense of structure and freedom in that our outfit is a daily choice we make, which we have complete creative control over. A silver lining of working from home for many of us is that the luxury of dressing up for work every day is no longer reserved for the creative industries. The five editors that I got in touch with for this piece inspire me to take chances with my style, and remind me that every day is a great opportunity to dress for yourself – even when working from my home office sofa.
POPSUGAR editors Nikita Charuza and Sarah Wasilak are always on the latest fashion trends. Charuza is loving the comfort of a cosy loungewear set, and wearing her mums vintage handbags to feel closer to home. Wasilak has been elevating her fitness kits in lockdown, and trying out Yoga to protect her peace of mind. Whereas I’m relying on gold jewellery and iridescent midi dresses to keep my spark feeling bright and chirpy.
One of my editorial inspirations, Net-a-Porter‘s content director Alice Casely-Hayford is loving a statement pearl earring to bring that fabulous feeling to Zoom meetings. She also fancies tie-detail midi dresses for looking on-trend, but elevated on the every day. Vogue Business social manager Jess Lawrence has some of the best personal style in London, and when she isn’t blogging for the fashion bible, her impressive collection of chunky silver jewellery is giving her confidence. And one of my dear friends Hannah Skelley, fashion assistant at The Times, is also reaching for jewellery to pick up her mood, and cosying up in a gorgeous fringe-detail overshirt while running errands on the high street.Credit: Original article published here.
