When you have nowhere to go and your social life is non-existent, you might think putting together a fab on-trend outfit is pointless.

The positive energy you radiate will cause a ripple effect on those you’re in isolation with, leading to better days for everyone. So slip out of your PJs and sweats, put on your fashionista hat, and remember to complete your ensemble with mood-boosting accessories and your favourite staple item. And while you’re at it, why not draw some inspiration from these lovely well-known women to make your world in self-isolation a trendier place? It’s time to dress up during lockdown!

So I talked to some doctors and scientists. It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups. I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok.
