Everything has changed, and the word "unprecedented," keeps being used. But when you look at what happens to style when the sky begins to fall, we can turn to history, because the bottom has dropped out before.
In short, here's an encouraging forecast you can take to the bank - fashion will change, but it won't disappear.
In our time, minimalism, capsule wardrobe dressing, and an emphasis on classics have slowly gained ground on lightning-fast fashion trends in the past few years, but our experts think longlasting classics will become the norm now. “Less disposable income means less money to throw away on clothing each season, and priority will go to clothes that will be fashionable longer than a couple of months,” Pfingst says. - InStyle.com
How Fashion Will Change
Yesterday, we took a look at what has been showing up for fall on the runways and what is likely to show up in the stores. But what will people buy and wear?
What I have read suggests that the following is what we will see people wearing more of as corona continues...
(1) Easy wash-and-wear pieces
(2) Classic style that is more likely to stand the test of time
(3) Comfy clothing with an upgrade that's easy to wear at home
We’ll reinvigorate the kinds of clothing that are one step above PJs: wrap dresses, caftans, easy blouses, and wide leg loose-fitting pants that make us feel like queens of our realm instead of prisoners. -InStyle
Dressing Up in Style
Will we ever wear our best clothes again? Probably, they say. We will want to dress up again and may reach for whatever is currently in style to do so.
I kept reading, too, that tailored styles are likely to return in popularity. So we may see more classic fashion. And I hope, clothes that are more sustainable.
If it were up to me, casual comfy clothing would win the day, but instead, it looks like those of us who favor that style had better soak it up while we can because it isn't here to stay.
So if you are starting to get good and tired of wearing the same things over and over again, I know it might be impractical to dress up, but do get creative with what you're wearing. I encourage you to find casual ways to create looks and outfits you'll enjoy seeing in the mirror.
Inside clothes are not pajamas, they’re not athleisure, and they’re certainly not lingerie. They are what you wear when you actively live your life indoors. I buy them more often than I buy outside clothes, and I aggressively cull and curate them, because my standards are very high. - Connie Wang, Refinery29.com
