Although we are still in lockdown and comfort is king, I can’t help but style outfits for when the lockdown is eventually lifted. It provides a glimmer of escapism in my day, doing something I love. After being told we must continue lockdown for 3 more weeks – at least – it was the news we were all expecting, but a quiet wave of sadness hit. It’s difficult to stay positive when we are unsure when life will go back to ‘normal’ or if in fact it ever will! But, we must rally together, connecting online and embrace the fact you may be living with and re-connecting family that you haven’t lived with for 10 years. I feel strongly for those who have lost family members and friends and salute those who have lost lives while treating and caring for Covid-19 positive patients. For us sat at home we must stay positive and make the best out of this dystopian reality. Here’s a snippet of what I do to stay optimistic; styling.
Co-ords are perfect for Spring/Summer. The lace-up skirt detailing, shirt style crop top and cut-out design caught my eye. The off-white colouring and long sleeve style of this ASOS co-ord is ideal for the transitional months between Spring and Summer. Generally co-ords are fashioned from light, cotton materials however, this co-ord is denim, making the fabric rigid and the visual edgy. I love taking a trend and putting my own spin on it. Two pieces have ruled the warmer months for years, this set has fashionable twists that I adore; the cut-out design with button neck fastening and collar adds an original flair to the two-piece top. The lace-up style of the skirt adds décor and an alternative aesthetic.
I paired the look with off-white lace up sandals for a dressy vibe, mirroring the lace up skirt style. To add a contrast colour, I chose my popping red Topshop shoulder saddle bag that I bought last year. In lockdown, try styling some looks from your wardrobe for a sprinkle of excitement.
