No doubt that being in quarantine for the last 3+ months has changed so many things for me: habits, wardrobe, mindset, beauty routines, etc. I’ll probably write a full blog post on each of those, but for this one, I’ll focus on style. I used to have some activewear, but that part of my closet has since expanded quite a bit since staying, working from, and working out at home.
Topshop crop tank top (under $15!), John Elliott “Flash” zip hoodie (affordable version), LNA leopard leggings (similar), Nike “React” sneakers, Grax Designs scrunchie (made by one of my former students!), Balenciaga square sunglasses, Likelihood face mask, Blackcurrantpop “Lolita” necklace, Supreme red bag
Below are two types of staples that I bought during quarantine, and they mix and match with everything:
White Crop Top
A white crop top is so versatile. It can be worn with sweatpants or leggings like I am in the photos, or with jeans, shorts, under overalls… you get the idea. If I wanted to dress up the tee a little, I would wear it with mom jeans, an oversized blazer, kitten heels, some big gold earrings, and a leather crossbody bag.
Biker shorts have been trendy for a while now, and pre-quarantine, people would style them with blazers. Maybe that day will come again… But for now, I wear biker shorts with either an oversized top or a crop top for a more casual vibe.
John Elliott tie dye tee, Old Navy gray biker shorts, Nike “Benassi” slides, Supreme bag, Forever 21 crop tee (sold out – similar) & tie dye biker shorts (sold out – similar here and here), YesStyle smiley socks
If you’re shopping for summer, currently there is a Shopbop Summer Sale that’s up to 75% off and an extra 25% off select styles with the promo code: SUMMER.
Look out for a part 2 coming soon! I think it’ll include my favorite leggings and hoodies that I got during quarantine… Let me know what else you’d like to see!
