Maybe you nabbed a ressie at your fave restaurant, maybe you’re getting ready to socialise indoors again or maybe you’re escaping the city for the weekend. Whatever you’re doing, you wanna be making maximum impact as lockdown is lifting. And when it comes to post-lockdown fashion, we’re not sticking to the less is more rule. Oh no, we’re going BOLD and we’ve found the wardrobe picks perfect for the job…
Ruched puff sleeves, a scoop neckline and the most majestic shade of yellow (or is it orange?) you ever did see. This silk midi dress from the Rejina Pyo x & Other Stories collab is an elevated version of an everyday summer staple. And not only is it a bold colour but it boasts a strong silhouette too, so you won’t go unnoticed when you waft around in this.
Go bold or you may as well just stay at home. These wide suit trousers not only feature a high waist, but they’re elasticated at the back too (great for transitioning out of your comfies). Match it with a classic white tee if you’re feeling casual, a printed tank for going back to the office or with the matching blazer if you’re feeling a little bit extra.
This ain’t just any old dress, it’s a MEGA bright colourblock dress from PAPER – the people who believe colourful clothing can change your state of mind. The straight cut top and balloon sleeves also recovers 1kg of ocean-bound plastic so it saves the planet too. If this isn’t a post-lockdown staple, then we dunno what is.
We’re here for sheer. And whilst it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, once you shove a blazer over the top or pop a layer underneath, we think you might just change your mind. The tie-dye print, extra-long sleeves and overlocked seams on this H&M dress make it a great addition to your wardrobe that’ll get all the right attention.
Jammies but make them socially acceptable. These pink feather trousers from independent and London-born brand KITRI will definitely get heads turning (in a good way). They feature a celestial sun print, a gorg fuschia pink hue and a cropped leg for those sunny but still chilly days. Get ready to swish around town in style as you come outta lockdown.
This little number is a high street STEAL. Not only does the bright shade of blue make a big ol’ statement, but the puff sleeve is bang on trend too. It’s perfect for a sun soaking sesh in the park, or layer it up with a leather jacket if you’re heading out-out on the weekend. Snap it up before it sells out.
