Liberate your partywear
After a couple of weeks in lockdown, I’m feeling that Working From Home needs livening up a bit. And it’s not as if there’s a shortage of time in which to experiment with old wardrobe favourites and a few new styling tricks. Particularly when your office is your spare room, and your closet is right behind you. While I’ll always enjoy my utilitarian, faff-free garb (new post on jumpsuits coming soon), adding a vintage beaded top, metallic shoes or some knockout jewellery is making me feel more cheerful. Blending bling with more normcore pieces – a gold lamé top with cargo pants, a sequinned sweatshirt and wide leg trousers – combining effortless basics with one look-at-me standout piece is what I call Casual Glamour (a phenomenon I wrote about in my first book Style Forever).
