During the pandemic, people's relationship with clothes has shifted significantly, as people prioritize comfort and convenience over appearance. Furthermore, the lockdown has left most of us with little or no desire to prepare a new look daily. For working women, it has actually become an even greater burden and source of anxiety.
Amid the pandemic, Qua launched 'Embrace', a new collection designed for WFH- Work leisure! The collection has become a huge success given that it adapted perfectly to the growing need for more comfortable yet presentable clothing for Zoom meetings.
Rupanshi, founder of Qua says, "Dressing up can motivate you and increase your productivity as well.
The flared and relaxed fits of the shirts, co-ords and dresses make dressing up easier, without compromising on comfort. On days when you are feeling uninspired, you can wear the co-ord or dress as it is and still look dressed up. These outfits can be elevated further by layering them with shirts and blazers, on days when you want to feel like a true professional."
The collection includes already built ensembles that require little to no styling, lightweight and breathable fabrics, seamless finish combined with comfy-style garments.
- The key garments of the collection namely smart co-ords, casual shirts and chic dresses are made of premium fabrics like moss crepe, viscose and cotton, which provide optimum breathability and homely comfort. These practical wardrobe must-haves have been a great help to working women in order to maintain a work-life balance, as the garments are comfortable to wear, chic, and a great addition to the 9-5 and beyond wardrobe.

There have been studies that show how dressing up for work can improve performance. The brand also conducted a poll, where 100 women participated, which revealed that 84 per cent of women felt unproductive while working from home and 85 per cent of women agreed that dressing up for work increased their productivity.
Despite the shift in the workplace due to the pandemic, dressing up for work still holds much value as it gives people a sense of professionalism. By dressing up appropriately even for zoom meetings, you can adequately prepare yourself for the day ahead, otherwise you might get caught in the 'working from bed' vortex. (IANS/MBI)

Buying sustainable fashion was predicted to be the trend of 2020 last December. At this time most of us had not even heard of the Coronavirus and those who had, certainly thought it was something that would not affect the whole world. The pandemic, just like any other major global crisis has redefined everything. It is no longer about shopping sustainably but wearing the clothes we have sustainably.
As we sat at home, we no longer needed to consume fashion like we once did. And when the lockdown went from weeks into months we craved the joy of dressing up. We looked at our closets in both disgust and desire. We realized how we owned too many clothes — and how the very act of dressing on a daily basis brought routine into our lives.

While you dress for an occasion, you actually dress for yourself — for the pleasure it brings you. And when you buy new clothes they come with the hope of new adventures. This pandemic drove home the point we need to buy less. In the United Kingdom alone it is estimated that 350,000 clothes end up in a landfill. Sustainable fashion activist Livia Firth, the founder of Eco-Age (a company that certifies brands for their sustainability) began the #30Wears campaign to encourage us to only buy a garment if we wear it multiple times. After all the most sustainable clothes are the ones we own already. This is why the mantra for 2021 has to be re-wear and reuse. And actually, you can have such fun learning how to reward your clothes.
BE YOUR OWN UPCYCLING STYLIST
During the lockdown, where we had time on our hands, I spent time really looking at my closet. Understanding the clothes I wear, the ones I do not. Some of the clothes you do not wear, simply need a bit of “do-over”. Living in India is really a boon, as there are so many good tailors who can help you spruce up pieces. Sometimes a pair of trousers simply need to be shortened or a dress just needs its shoulders corrected. Other times you can be your own designer. For instance, take old textiles like discarded dupattas or unwanted saris and turn them into resort friendly kaftans, or even jackets for a dinner party. And some pieces simply just need to pass on to a sister or a friend. Your junk might be someone else’s treasure.
Shopping for Vintage is almost like fashion portfolio management- you need to know when it’s a good time to buy a vintage piece and when is the time to cash in. When it comes to accessories some fashion pieces really object dart. Right now, for instance, the Bottega Veneta pouch is an “it bag” but how much cooler would it’s older sister that came out in the 1970s be.
This pouch clutch was made popular by Lauren Hutton in the 1980 film American Gigolo and there was a reissue a few years ago. The new 2020 version references the “Lauren 1980 Clutch”. Auction house Christie’s and Sotheby’s now regularly hold auctions of handbags, and their websites such as The RealReal and The Luxury Closet specializes in pre-loved luxury pieces, you can often find vintage gems if you have a keen eye. Buying vintage is a circular fashion friendly as it gets.
THE FASHION SWAP
It was while I was in my 20s that the “it bag” syndrome started, and of course, we all had tight budgets — (And could never understand how Carrie Bradshaw could afford all those bags!) So we each bought one “it bag” every year and then did swap every month or so. And it’s a system I have restarted with friends — for instance, I have had my eye on the Sabyasachi Royal Bengal Tiger Belt for a while now — my friend has it and said was bored of it. So I now have it, and in exchange, she borrowed one of the statement necklaces, that I have just worn so much that I am tired of it. (IANS)
