After spending so much time dreaming about what we would wear when lockdown lifted, it feels like we should have been a tad more prepared for it when it actually happened. But once we bagged that first outdoor drinks reservation, fashion was the last thing on our mind. As we sipped our first Aperol Spritz in a chilly beer garden and caught up with family and friends, outfit planning felt somewhat obsolete.
However, now that the dust has settled, we can start thinking about our summer wardrobe. We might not be packing for our staycation just yet but the idea that we now have places to go and people to see is enough to get us browsing the shops both online and IRL. And with more restrictions set to ease on 17th May, including eating indoors and some entertainment (cinema dates, people!), our anticipation for dressing up is growing by the day.
