Fashion Trends in COVID’19
Bill Cunningham once said ‘Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life.’ There goes a lot of imagination, time, effort and artistry behind the making of one garment. The coronavirus has given a rise to a whole new world which requires us to adjust to a set of new lifestyle as well as fashion rules. Every person’s behaviour towards fashion has taken a backseat and seen a drastic change due to COVID’19. People have been settling for more casual, comfortable looks with a pop of creativity and style on the masks.
6 fashion trends that have emerged during COVID’19:
- Creative Face Masks: 2020 has been all about protecting ourselves from the deadly coronavirus. Ever since the doctors have declared that wearing a mask is mandatory, every designer has started producing fancy, durable, reusable and quirky masks. Currently, face masks in different materials, patterns and colours, masks with chains as well as embroidered face masks for brides have been the latest addition to fashion
- Flip-flops: In the quarantine season, majority of the women prefer and prioritize comfort over style. Flip flops, sliders and mules are the most comfortable go-to footwear this season compared to painful and chunky high heels or boots. Contrastingly, women who like heels have plumped for kitten heels. Kitten heels have really tiny heels which make it extremely comfortable to wear all day.
- Scarves: The pandemic has made everyone think out of the box and get creative with every piece of clothing. Hands down, scarves as tops have been the biggest trend of the year. A lot of fashion influencers and models have opted for this new DIY trend and it is all over social media. Scarves as face masks have also been popular currently.
- Vintage clothing: Fashion visits the previous styles time and again which is why the styles from the ’70s and ’80s have been trending currently. Women have been experimenting with a lot of flare denim, squared necklines, puffy-sleeved tops and corset tops. On the other hand, men have been opting back to the style of ’90s which includes tracksuits, polo neck t-shirts, patch-work shirts and oversized blazers.
- Tie-Dye: Men and women across the globe have been obsessing over tie-dyed pair of jeans, sweatpants and t-shirts. The tie-dye DIY clothing challenge was a major trend on various social media platforms like Instagram.
- Crossbody Bags: Crossbody bags with a short strap and a few compartments have been the latest style for men. It makes a very casual attire look classy and is also very practical for men to keep their belongings.
With the entire world working from home, everyone’s priority is mainly comfort clothing. Athleisure
wear is now not only our workout wear but also office wear, market outfit and loungewear. Minimalism and sustainability in fashion is the goal for a lot of people this year. Investing in basic items of clothing and accessories is what people prefer in the current times. Glitter, glamour and high-end fashion have taken a major setback in 2020.
