Who would have believed that getting dressed was a skill you could lose? That even the sharpest dressers among us could find themselves staring in confusion in front of their closets, incapable of putting an outfit together? More than a year spent in lockdown within the cocoon-like confines of hoodies and elastic waistbands has rendered even the most style-savvy among us at a loss for how to put on clothes.

But the time has come to get dressed again. Find inspiration (instead of trepidation) by investing in a new work blouse that may never see the cold glow of a Zoom screen. Store your sweats in favor of trousers that still feel like cozy pants but look ready for an important meeting or dinner party, buy some shoes for outside that are as comfortable as slippers, and spring for chic dresses that offer the comfort of a nightgown. If you’re feeling truly bold, ease back into (small! block!) heels and jeans, apply a captivating shade of lipstick that won’t be obscured by a mask, and stock up on accessories that make leaving the house a truly exciting endeavor. And please, don’t forget your sunblock and hats.
