Fashion week is cancelled, festivals are cancelled, summer is cancelled. And it seems likely the enhanced community quarantine is going to be extended as well. The lingering threat of COVID-19 is going to keep us home for the foreseeable future.
So what happens to fashion, then?
All of the platforms where we usually witness the creativity of designers—fashion shows, red carpets, street style haunts—are about to change as we confront the situation. There’s no clear direction as to where it’s headed, and already, some of the luxury brands are repurposing their production lines to help fight the pandemic. Things won’t be the same when all of this over, but for now, all we can do is wait it out at home.
Aside from wearing face masks, which have now become the symbol of our times, we’ve abandoned loafers for bedroom slippers, trousers for sweatpants, and polo shirts for everything dri-fit.
Still, there are times when you do have to show up in style. And there are times when you have to dress up, just to keep a sense of normalcy in your routine.
We’ve gathered a few inspirations for different situations—from getting supplies, to working from home, and even when day drinking—just to keep your fits in check.
