Over the last few months, everyone has developed different attitudes to social-distancing dressing. Whether you’ve become a comfy co-ord convert, a legging devotee or someone who is militant about staying smart to keep a routine in place, clothing has played an unexpectedly important role in the way we approach our working weeks.
As someone who loves to dress up for work, my approach has been to try and put on something that I feel good in every day, even if it’s just a super-simple ensemble. My general approach has been comfy minimalism with the odd splash of colour or playful detailing. This has meant I have rarely worn jeans (too constricting) and have enjoyed digging out some previously neglected dresses, alongside embracing neutral separates and championing the throw-on appeal of the jumpsuit.
Of course, the only person seeing these outfits is my husband—well, and now you—but I have found that fashion is a small yet significant way to be creative and lift my mood each morning. For you, that might be cooking or exercise, crafts or puzzles—you just gotta find what keeps you going. So if you’re interested, I’ve detailed the seven outfits that have brought a bit of fun to my working week. Scroll down to see what I chose.
