The pandemic made a huge impact on everyone and it affected almost every aspect of our lives from the way we communicate to simple things like how we order food or even how we dress. Today, people are strongly required to follow health protocols to prevent the virus from spreading. This includes the constant wearing of facemasks which now seemingly became part of our fashion statement. While sustaining our lifestyle may not be our topmost priority at the moment, our current situation should not be a reason to stop us from wearing what makes us feel comfortable and fashionable at the same time.
In fact, many popular clothing lines are starting to embrace this new normal and even launched their own lines of fashionable facemasks to complement well with our outfits. Just because there’s a pandemic doesn’t mean we cannot afford to be fashionable right? Here are some tips on how to stay in fashion amidst the pandemic.
Embracing New Normal Stay at Home Outfits
In observance of the current pandemic, many companies decided to embrace the new work-from-home environment where instead of heading the office, people are now utilizing the power of the Internet to connect with their bosses and colleagues. The new normal also means that public places like restaurants, bars, gyms only allow a very limited number of people. The same thing goes with large events to prevent the spread of the virus. However, just because we are all forced to stay at home doesn’t mean we just let those outfits catch some dust in our closets.
Go ahead and wear those outfits with full confidence whether you are about to enter a Zoom meeting or you just want to share your OOTD on Instagram and Facebook. It’s also a great opportunity to shop for more clothes. Online boutiques are becoming more popular because of the pandemic. They became a new platform for everyone to shop for more clothes in a very convenient and COVID-free way. To top it all, they give us more options to choose from without exerting too much energy walking around the actual shop. If you’re looking for some cool outfits from adorable Sunday dresses to comfy sweaters and pullover clothes, I suggest you check Tea N Rose Boutique Clothing and see their huge collection.
Luckily in our area, we are still allowed to attend very small gatherings including church masses so my sister and I were still able to pull off some of our outfits every Sunday.
Dress To Impress – Zoom-Friendly Clothes
Zoom meetings have become a common platform for businesses, companies, and schools to communicate. Just because you are just sitting there in front of your computer doesn’t mean you no longer need to dress appropriately. Especially, if you are engaging yourself in a virtual meeting or interview, you still need to dress to impress. Take note that dressing appropriately will still make a lasting impression. Make sure to dress to convey that you are the person for that particular job.
Your backdrop also plays a crucial role too. Now that virtual meetings are becoming a normal thing, creating a visually appealing environment will surely make great impressions too. From proper lighting to the proper set of accessories! Every angle must be considered!
Facemask – A New Fashion Statement
If there is one thing that really becomes part of our daily lives, it would be the facemasks. Of course, the main purpose of this is to protect us from contracting the virus but as time passed by, these masks evolved into a fashion statement. While we are still encouraged to wear the correct surgical masks, companies and clothing lines started to come up with fashionable masks that we can wear on top of the regular filter masks.
There is a great number of printed masks that you can buy online. If you want to take it to another level, you might also consider wearing masks embellished with beads and jewels. I was searching some online shops the other day and also found some over-the-top designs including anime-inspired masks that will surely go unnoticed.
Turn Casual Clothes to Instagram-Worthy Outfits
Here’s another fun idea. While we all embrace this new normal lifestyle and while we are all encouraged to stay at home, it is a great opportunity to showcase the best of our creativity. You can use social media platforms like Instagram and share your unique fashion sense. You can show your followers how can you creatively transform casual clothes and turn them into Instagram-worthy outfits.
I recently came across an IG post where she managed to turn her “duster clothes” into a fashionable one. Some were even creative enough to use different accessories to make their dresses fancier. With the proper combination of clothes and with the help of fancy accessories, you can surely turn boring outfits into a masterpiece.
