One whole year in this prison sentence AKA lockdown and one year of stained sweats, lifeless leggings, pungent pyjamas… I could go on. We’ve become experts at dreary dressing by no fault of our own but I miss using fashion as a form of self-expression and styling with substance…something that the SATC gang were great at!
“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”, but it doesn’t stop there, it also gives you the opportunity to show how you’re feeling, what you stand for, and what you’re in the mood for! I’ve barely gone a day without wearing black in lockdown, probably symbolising the mourning of my social life, but as we hopefully approach the end of a difficult year it’s got me thinking about how we can express our emotions through style and fashion when we step back into civilisation.
I’m envisioning bright colours and bold prints to express our excitement and happiness. Short hem lines and dramatically low backs to showcase our ‘don’t give a f**k’ attitude. Over accessorising and embellishing outfits because we’ve not had a chance to wear it all year so might as well wear it all at once!
When we’re released back into the wild, look out for what people are representing by the outfit they have chosen. Compliment the woman on the train with the clashing prints and tell the girls dressed up to the nines to have a good night because we might not admit it, but there is a reason why we chose that outfit for that day!
