For some people, getting stylish or simply dressing up is the last thing on their mind, especially for trying times like this. However, there are individuals who get their confidence and self-esteem back through fashion. After all, “looking good is feeling good.”
So, if you’re one of those who is fond of looking fab and stylish even at home, this post is for you!
In Fashion, There’s No Place Like Home
There are women who are more confident and feel a high morale when they’re wearing red lipstick, walking in high heels, or simply donning designer headbands. If you’re one of those, it would really help to keep yourself updated with fashion and lifestyle tips.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to wait until you can finally go out to practice these techniques as you can always begin looking fab even at home. Why wait for the normal outdoor life to come back when you can have fun and stay sophisticated indoors.
Trust us, this is something you should try!
Things You Can Do At Home During Quarantine In The Name Of Fashion
Most of us have a lot of free time we can use for other things -- reading the books you bought from bazaars, organizing high end accessories, attending free workshops on self-improvement, or simply binge-watching on Netflix.
Other than these, we can use this free time to get our inner fashionistas and do these quarantine fashion activities alone or with the fam. Yes, that’s what makes this more exciting!
Not only do you get to bond with the best people you have in your life -- a.k.a. your family -- you can also get all stylish together!
Create A Plan
The first question you should answer is: what do you want to wear?
For sure, you’ve done a lot of Pinterest scrolling at work or at school and you’ve wondered about trying different styles.
Cool and casual?
Simple yet sophisticated?
Whatever you had in mind, now’s the best time to plan it out.
You already had a list of designs you want but perhaps, you still can’t decide. What you can do is reconnect with your loved ones or even some friends and ask for some tips or inspirations. What style are they currently wearing? Can they recommend any trend you can practice at home? Who are the style icons they are following?
You can write down pointers from your video chat session for reference.
Start Dressing Up
The good thing when you’re at home is that you don’t have to wait for a long time to execute your plan. Don’t stress out and make it fun!
Check your plan from time to time and follow a fashion mantra every day to stay motivated and upbeat.
Here are some fashion mantras:
- Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day.
- Too much of a good thing can be truly wonderful.
- Make every outfit count.
- Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it.
- Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.
Follow the tips you had from your family and/ or mix it with your own. Again, the key is to have fun. Try various outfits everyday until you find the style that suits you. For example, on the first day of your fashion week, try that cute dress you bought but never worn and pair it with a cute white lace hair clip; the next week, go vintage and pair it with matching ballerinas.
Don’t forget to share some photos and videos to your family.
The fun doesn’t end in dressing up -- that’s only the beginning.
You’ve shared your mini quarantine activity with the fam, why not spread the word to your friends and followers, too? Go social and don’t be ashamed to tell them what you’ve been doing in these gloomy days. Share tips and your personal experience every fashion week and who knows? You might inspire another person or two.
So what are you waiting for? Start your fashion week at home now and don’t forget to switch on your camera and click!
