House Style
Easy does it as times get hard. Jeffrey Yan explores how fashion can be utilised as a cocoon of comfort amidst uncertainty
Jeffrey Yan

First things first: Having the ability to work from home is a privilege; to be able to muse about matters of style while doing so is an added bonus. Having acknowledged the conundrum in which fashion now finds itself, perhaps it would also help to remember the power and pleasures of fashion. It offers escapism and a way to reclaim some sense of normalcy, no matter how small, in these turbulent times of upended routines—it’s the one thing in our lives we can control.

After all, even with nowhere to go, one is still faced with the contents of one’s closet each morning. How do you take from that what you need to put your best foot forward? What you put on yourself and project outwards reflects, and ultimately influences, what you feel inside. Comfort should be the key here. As more people than ever are staying home, this will perhaps mark the turning point where athleisure, with its emphasis on ease and efficiency, completes its takeover of our wardrobes.
