A lesson I learnt early in lockdown was that I had to let go. My family and I needed to reset our thinking and schedules to get through every day in iso. Sure, some things, like our children’s primary needs, had to maintain the usual standard. But it was the smaller stuff that I couldn’t sweat any longer. I needed to be a bit easier on myself to get through these challenging times. And it’s struck me, as we’re putting this issue together, that rewriting the rules is a constant theme throughout.

SWEATER VEST Conquer in-between forecasts with this cosy layer. Pulled over a smart dress it reads relaxed yet polished--- the ultimate WFH style staple. Practicality aside, the preppy piece injects a charming dose of quirk into an already exuberant outfit by adding another playful print to the mix. KNITTED DRESS While a generous amount of stretch makes this an undeniable comfort piece, a modern cut-out panel defies any notion of a tired silhouette. A statement coat completes the high-fashion makeover. Tap into the streamlined shape’s versatility by slipping a cute miniskirt on top. Piled with a patent topper and chunky boots for grunge-girl edge, the knitted dress earns its wardrobe chameleon status.
