What will post pandemic fashion look like?
Are you ready to ditch your quarantine sweats?
During the pandemic, conventional beauty standards have noticeably relaxed: People have ditched makeup in favor of a bare-faced look, and loungewear became a normalized fashion staple for many — even outside of the bedroom.
"At the start of the pandemic, people were always a little more eager to find ways to incorporate casual clothing items into more circumstances" D.C. Commissioner of Fashion Arts and Events Emilia Ferrara tells USA TODAY.
She recalled seeing a "strict diet" of more casual, comfortable looks during lockdown: for instance, sneakers and slippers in lieu of heels and pumps, or sweats and athletic shorts over dress pants or denim jeans.
