With government guidelines keeping us locked up inside, it’s all about our environment to keep us sane. Not to sound like one of those spiritual wellbeing influencers, but clothes mean a lot. Known by fashion psychologists as 'enclothed cognition', it's true that what we wear has a systematic influence on our psychological processes. It stands to reason, then, that in choosing clothes that make us feel happy, protected and comforted, lockdown will look a lot brighter.
