The COVID-19 diaries: clothes

16/04/2020

Has anyone else seriously rethought their fashion priorities under lockdown? I always privileged style over comfort – although I have had periods of wearing jeans and tops – but I’ve done a bit of an about-turn lately. I guess there’s no one to dress up for. And my local dress code is strictly athleisurewear. Yesterday, when I went out for a walk in my leggings and merino top and sneakers, I almost felt like I was passing.

And yes, I have attended a few of my work 9.30am stand up meetings in my pyjamas – it’s all about having the right scarf.

    Thank you for posting this Sarah – another so true moment – I was just laughing at an email from a trendy shop advertising rather gorgeous clothes including dresses, skirts and trousers bottoms for those important stand-up ZOOM meetings. Also it reminded me of a post you did probably pre-children about shopping with Alia. PS you always look amazing.

    Obviously you were meant for more glamorous places than where you grew up. A warm jumper and a good coat was de rigour all year round. But luckily there are lots of op shops where the glamorous but slightly impractical outfits can be found.
