We shot this post two weeks earlier, prior to our lives were changed in a really real method. To be completely sincere, I’ve had a hard time a bit with how precisely to handle HSS during this time. Do we keep it “company as typical”? Do we pivot and make ambulance-chasing material with a sell-by date? Who even cares about style right now? And why does this matter?
I have actually practically responded to those questions for myself, however there are 2 sides to my thinking. Me, personally? My interest is waning. I scroll through my Instagram feed and believe, “Whatever. Give me a break. Get over yourselves.” However, I likewise feel a sense of obligation to continue to supply something of worth for those who have relied on us for seven-plus years– an escape, an interruption, a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. So that’s what I’m going to do which’s what this is.
This is a post about spring fundamentals. It’s a post about the virtues of dressing simply. It’s a post about convenience and design not being mutually unique. Strangely (or ironically or serendipitously)those are all things that aren’t just universal talking points I ‘d utilize for a springtime post any old time, it’s likewise extremely appropriate in our present #WFH scenario.
Full disclosure: I’ve been investing a great deal of time relaxing in sweatpants and a hoodie recently. Why the hell not ?! It’s comfy. Nobody’s evaluating you. But I need to say that are certainly times I’ve longed to have a factor to get dressed up.(My wife, Robin, has actually been feeling that itch also and she took it to an extreme for a virtual mixer with coworkers.) If you’re checking out these words, you have actually probably felt the exact same.
While I might not be wearing my tuxedo anytime quickly– though, never ever say never ever, I expect– there are still ways to look assembled without overdoing it when you’re needing to feel a little better. And isn’t that what dressing well is everything about, anyhow– feeling your finest?
If you’re going to dress up to work from home, please keep it easy. Do not be” that man”in a three-piece suit bending to your followers. That’s not real. Do not pretend. Not now. I in fact put out a contact Instagram and YouTube requesting for individuals to send their genuine WFH clothing to be featured in an approaching video. We’re all in this together– let’s share and laugh and appreciate everybody for who they are. Honestly, for those looking for some inspiration, I would recommend not neglecting the fundamentals. A white shirt and khakis will totally fit the costs.
Convenience is also something that’s very important. And the two pieces I’m wearing here from Mizzen+Main examine that box. They’re made in what you ‘d call an efficiency material. It’s soft with a 360 stretch, which are essential to keeping that all-day convenience. They’re likewise wrinkle-resistant, moisture-wicking, and maker washable (so no unnecessary journeys to the dry cleaners needed– keep practicing your social distancing!).
In basic, don’t overthink it, folks.
