Anyone else planning their outfits for the celebrations?
Who knew that all it takes to drag us off the sofa and have us raring for a night out is a global pandemic? Along with everyone else in the world, I too am cursing my past introverted self for cancelling plans and leaving clubs early – how was I to know that that kebab would be my last?
While it’s still unclear how long we will be living under these new measures of self-isolating and social distancing, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun in planning the celebrations for when they do come to an end. I for one will be wearing every ostentatious piece in my wardrobe at the same time, even if it’s only to have a few pints in the local and then home. No outfit is too extravagant, too OTT – you only get to celebrate the end of a pandemic once (hopefully, anyway).
In my considerable amount of newfound free time, I have been perusing online to find the missing pieces to my party-ready wardrobe, and I’m pleased to report that there are lots of options. Here are 12 of my favourites.
