Our country is facing trying times, and while we’re all sheltering in place, there are pieces we continue to reach for to keep the morale high. That includes accessories for some (think: visors and mini totes) – worn on long walks or for social-distanced backyard get-togethers – and feel-good loungewear for others. These pieces sort of fell into our laps. We didn’t know they’d become our best friends, but they totally did over the past four to five months.
This is a conversation we’ve been having as Fashion editors at POPSUGAR, but we wanted to reach out to our friends and creatives in the industry to confirm that we are not alone. As it turns out, we most certainly are not. Even though it seems we’ve all reached peak sweatpant fatigue, there are other stylish items that people are wearing for comfort reasons, or as simple reminders that fashion can often make us more cheerful and optimistic. If you’re looking to find some of these key pieces in your own wardrobe, perhaps the responses we’ve gathered will inspire you to pull out an old favorite slip or some earrings you haven’t put on in years. Hopefully, that will put a smile on your face.
