The Best New Pieces to Wear During Lockdown That Will Life You Up!
It's time for yet another line-up of work-from-home lockdown essentials!
It's officially our third time in ECQ and a number of lockdown must-haves just keep on coming! What you needed earlier this year might not be what you need right now especially because of weather changes but don't fret, we got exactly what you need. For the third wave, we're focusing on making you look and feel better without you having to break the bank. Just a subtle change in your wardrobe and you're good to go. It's probably best if you tone down the use of your loungewear sets, your overused fabric face masks, and daydresses because we have couple of better weather-appropriate suggestions for you. Read up and let us know which new lockdown trend will you sport for the next few days.
Over the past year we've seen a lot of face masks with different levels of protection, structure, and fabric. This time around, we're proposing a completely bold approach to staying safe while still looking stylish. Color block face masks and wait for it ... gradient face masks are very much on trend! Not only do these face masks make heads turn but they also give you the right level of protection you need. If you've ever heard of the double masking technique, this is the time to layer up with a groovy color palette. The face masks from local brand Koko Essentials are absolutely to die for. In case you don't know it yet, the gradient surgical and N95 face masks are becoming a big thing on Tiktok and on Instagram! Even the colorful satin ones from another local brand named Chain are a real treat. There's literally a color for anyone from black and white gradients to tri-color ones.
If you're currently bored with wearing loungewear sets, you'll definitely thank us for this promising lockdown style trend. Use your favorite silk night robe or kimono to make your work-from-home looks even more interesting. Pair this with a buttondown or a frilly blouse and a midi skirt or a pair of denim jeans. The best way to style this is to go wild with colors, either completely complement your hero piece a.k.a. your robe or wear contrasting colors to make it pop. Just incase you need to run some errands, you know you'll be slaying the entire day in this look! Choose from the cloud kimono from R.A.F Manila, the yoko robe from Love Stories, or the printed cotton kaftan from Mango in Zalora.
We understand if you still live for loose dresses but its time to put your puffy, off-the-shoulder, or embroidered summer day dresses to rest in exchange for shirt dresses. The rainy season calls for stronger shoulders and lines! Whether you're off to a meeting, an alfresco brunch with your family in your backyard, or a quick run in the grocery store, these shirt dresses will be your best friend. The best ones we've seen so far are from Mango, H&M, and Love, Bonito! Go ahead and click the link to shop these must-haves right now.
