We are all at home now (or at least we should be!). And as petty of a question as this may be, this stylist wants to know…What are we all wearing?
The first few days at home, I get it- we wanted to be comfortable and so, for many of us it was an-all day pajama day…but now that more than a week’s gone by- enough!
I wrote an article not too long ago about the benefits of dressing for our mood: Dopamine dressing (you can read it here). There is so much truth about how clothing can change your whole mood, demeanor and attitude.
Can we all agree that we need to pep ourselves up a bit and try to stay positive during these difficult times? So, let’s start by, at the very least, getting dressed when at home!
And, if you insist on comfort, this may be the time to take out those gorgeous kimonos you’ve been wanting to wear (and what exactly were you saving them for anyway??).
Besides kimonos though, ladies, please wear your clothes! Just because we are staying home does not mean we have to let go of it all- you don’t want to drag yourself into a depression (and yes- therapists will tell patients exactly that: get up, shower and get dressed- every day!). It’s important! It makes you feel like you are ready for your day.
You are not getting dressed to impress- you’re doing it for yourself! Go ahead and dress up; whether it’s in casual wear, evening wear- or whatever wear- just do it: Get up and get dressed!
There is absolutely no specific reason for this type of dressing- cause we’re not going anywhere! This, my friends can make it all the more fun! Wear what you want- now is the time to enjoy even the craziest of outfits. After all, nobody’s visiting! Get up, get dressed and put on your Confinement wear!
Here are some ideas for what some Montreal divas are wearing to dress up while in confinement (and even when not!). One thing that all these looks have in common (besides being so darn cute!), is: Comfort.
Let’s stay safe for the health of all during this difficult time, while we connect with all things that are truly meaningful to us. And, as we try to distract ourselves from the worry and anxiety- why not indulge in a little dress-up time? There’s no harm in bringing some dopamine back into our lives…Let’s keep this quarantine fashionable shall we?
#Confessionoftheday: secretly dreaming of a virtual runway where we all dress for our own runway…Hey- confinement will do that to you!
