It’s been a long time since the Time Out team were in an office. And, in the months since we got sent to work from home, many of us have developed strange lockdown habits that will never be spoken of once this is all over. Another change – perhaps less noticeable because none of us (other than maybe our social media editor Sam Willis) could really claim to be influential fashionistas before this – is our wardrobes.
While lockdown arrived with us all making promises to ourselves and HR to dress for work so that we could live our most productive lives, very few of us have kept that up. Our daily Zoom calls have become a fiesta of comfy clothes, old clothes and extremely wildly patterned clothes as we swaddle ourselves in nostalgia and fleece. And even more slobbish than that: many of us appear on screen again and again, in the same item, getting sweatier and more stain-covered every day.
Here are the clothes we’ve been wearing the most during lockdown. We’d love to see what you’ve been wearing too. Tweet us your #looks at @timeoutlondon.
There’s a lot of links to big ’ol brands in this feature but, if you've got the urge to shop, maybe consider doing things a bit more ethically that some of us suckers have done. Here’s a guide to black-owned businesses in London and here are loads of quirky indie shops.
