Welcome to Season 3
Are You Actually Wearing That …… Out?
Today l am wearing my frilly knickers, spinning nipple tassles and my spotty sneakers and ….. no, l am not wearing those things at all. I am wearing blue twill denim jeans, a black fake leather belt, a grey zombie flesh eaters organic cotton tee shirt and a light dark blue zip fronted hoody and black indoor fabric sneakers … did l need to be THAT detailed? Of course not … l just was because l could be!
Yesterday l was wearing a combination of three outfits on accounts of flipping compost at lunch time, so l varied between smart casual and grunge casual to just grunge. But l have almost always worn a combination of fashion at home .. for me my days are not really that different from pre lockdown days and will not vary that much in post lockdown days.
Suze on the other hand has gone from wearing smart casual for work Monday to Thursday when at the office in pre-lockdown days to flopsy hippy casual lockdown fashion whilst working from home.
Today she was meeting a friend yada yada yes yes socially distanced social excursion out and they were to combine that meet up with a shopping trip as well. The weather is beautiful and despite it being a Bank Holiday Monday which is rubbish as opposed to it currently being a Friday so it is a Bank Holiday Friday. [just another day in truth]….
….. she decided to dress up out of grunge hippy flopsy and the first thing she yelled out was the discomfort of her bra [which trust me is ANOTHER post soon – so look out for Gravity Lifters!’ One thing l do know a lot about is boobs! But she was meeting a lady from work and didn’t think it right for the whole world to be on nipple alert because of her going braless….
But she looked like a different person on account of the fact that she was dressed up …. but it does beg the question also about how people are dressing down during lockdown for working from home as opposed to how they would normally dress if attending their actual employment environment.
Years ago in management in fashion, advertising or retail l always had to be suited and booted and that also meant wearing a tie and properly laced up shiny shoes – these days even most of the managers don’t wear ties in retail and usually that is reserved only for the likes of Bank Managers and city workers.
Fashion is always changing …. but currently with our present situation and the actual scale of our unprecedented times during the pandemic many observations are being made from industry and employers alike that truth be told perhaps more people should just work from home full time? This will change the way people dress for work … but with the social distancing and the introduction of new routines and behaviours the way people dress socially will also change … so today’s questions are these?
Has the lockdown altered your day to day dress code and after lockdown will you instantly revert to old fashion you or new fashion you?
What will your future fashion or dress code style be and consist of?
Will you even bother to dress up to go out post lockdown?
