Fashion in the Time of Covid-19: Wardrobe Tips from a Fashion Therapist

Fashion in the Time of Covid-19: Wardrobe Tips from a Fashion Therapist

The Coronavirus is turning the world upside down, forcing millions of us into quarantine. It's a scary time, and as we look for ways to comfort ourselves, whether consciously or unconsciously, we might find ourselves living in our pajamas. If you're not leaving the house, fashion might seem superfluous, and getting dressed might not seem worth it. But what if what you wear has a powerful effect on how you feel? Living in your sweats for a week might not be a big deal, but what if we're stuck inside much longer than that? We asked fashion therapist Stephanie Gisondi-Little of ComposedCo to share her perspective. 

Glam Capsule Challenge 3 Ways

Glam Capsule Challenge 3 Ways

Capsule wardrobes have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. A capsule wardrobe is a way of curating your closet to contain a set amount of items which can be mixed and matched multiple ways. While the word ‘capsule’ in the fashion world previously referred to ‘capsule collections,’ the slow fashion movement has taken it to the streets! While designer capsule collections are often created to try and convince consumers that they need to buy everything in their line, capsule wardrobes celebrate the reuse and re-styling of items we already have. Sustainable fashion Blogger Lee Vosburgh, of StyleBee, made the “10x10 challenge” popular in 2015. This challenge consists of narrowing down your wardrobe to 10 items and rocking them together for 10 days. The difference between the 10x10 challenge and the “Glam Capsule” challenge is that the latter is all jazzed up. Author and ethical fashion advocate Elizabeth Cline created this social media challenge this year with the aim of proving that conscious fashion can be for everyone. It’s easy to focus on basics when embarking on the 10x10 challenge, which is a wonderful way to learn about layering! However, the #glamcapsulechallenge pushes people to go out of their comfort zone and into the spotlight. Both of these challenges are tests of creativity and can help hone person style. Sustainable fashion doesn’t have to look one way. It can mold to your personal style and become your own. While capsule challenges, and ethical fashion at large, are depicted on mostly one type of person (thin, white, well-off, minimalist) they are for everyone.
