2020 Was a terrible year. Perhaps the worst in history. It robbed us of our beautiful summers. Basking in the sun and strutting our stuff. And it robbed us of our winter. Festivities with family and looking fine down at the Xmas market. But with 2021 we are looking to the future with positivity. We are staying indoors and hoping, by this summer, we will be back out in the sun.
And we are already eager with anticipation of the new fashions we will see while we are out to picnic. Nothing beats laying down a stylish blanket, cracking open the picnic basket, and watching the people go by in their summer gear. And with the scorching heat of both the sun and the stylish looks, you will need to keep your ice frozen for longer with a proper cooler, as it’s going to be a scorcher this year.
But how can you prepare your wardrobe for the eventual return to civilization? We are here to help answer that question. So, let’s dive in.
Color is the cornerstone of any fashion identity. And colors are also hugely seasonal. So with the emergence of summer, you need to make sure your wardrobe is color ready to match. This summer is hopefully going to be a lively one. People want happiness and joy. Our recommendation is to stock up on bright, cheerful colors. Lots of yellows and blues. Or if you want something less classic we recommend trying some bright reds or even some vibrant greens.
With the introduction of masks as a major fashion item, even after the pandemic will end, we recommend you try incorporating a secondary color using your mask. To complement your entire wardrobe and to stay even safer.
There will be a huge urge to rush out and buy a flurry of new clothes when lockdown ends properly. But we recommend for this season is to avoid doing that. Firstly because everyone else will be doing the same and that’s a surefire way to get sick.
But this is also a great opportunity for you to dig up all the old outfits that didn’t get a chance to be worn last summer. I imagine everyone has loads of outfits tucked away just waiting to be worn. Why not try creating some new, interesting outfits put mix and matching different items of clothing as well. Create a new fashion trend for this new world we will be in.
This summer is the perfect time to try out some new accessories. Perhaps you are someone who has always been a bit skeptical about using accessories in your outfit. Or perhaps you are a seasoned veteran, who will spend hours adorning yourself with lavish trinkets.
This lockdown has hit smaller businesses hard. So that is why we recommend you look at investing in some handcrafted accessories from smaller, independent businesses. Head down to a local market and browse their wares. Shop on Etsy or through any of the independent seller websites.
The great thing about accessories is there is no one right way of using them. You can go all out and wear extravagant make-up paired with matching jewelry and hairstyles. Or you could keep it simple with a watch and necklace combination. The possibilities are literally endless. So flex your creative muscles this summer.
The most important thing to remember is this. Even if lockdown ends, we won’t be out of the woods. This pandemic has shown us we need to be cautious and pro-active with our health. So wash your hands, keep your distance, and stay safe out there.
