Last year was a time when we couldn’t go out much or at all because of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, science and medicine are doing their best to release ample vaccines for all of us to fight the virus. This year, we can move around more freely. Many people are getting vaccinated and maybe you have been, too!
But even with complete doses of the vaccine, you must always keep in mind safety protocols. Wearing a face mask, face shield, and practicing social distancing is still the best way to keep yourself and those around you safe. Now, going out can be more fun, so why not upgrade your wardrobe for this year. After all, you probably didn’t go out much last year and the first half of this year. In this article, we’ll discuss five simple ways to upgrade your wardrobe for 2021.
1 – Wear a nice timepiece on your wrist
An outfit can look more complete with a nice timepiece to finish everything off. Being in the generation of the internet and technology, we would rely on our smartphones for everything. This includes checking the time. When going out and spending time with your friends and family, it’s only proper etiquette to put your phone aside. Checking the time on your phone leads to more distractions because you’ll see your notifications. So, wearing a wristwatch helps you avoid distractions and be focused at the moment. Nice timepieces like Timex, Diesel, or Guess watches can make your outfit look most polished. It’s basically the icing on the cake! So, opt for a nice timepiece that is versatile enough to match with most of your outfits.
2 – Get some reusable cloth face masks
A face mask is still a need at this time. It has become part of everyone’s daily wear, so you could say that it’s an essential to your wardrobe. Unfortunately, most of the disposable or surgical masks available look too plain or boring. And as their name suggests, they are disposable. Any one-time use item should be thrown, and this only contributes to more waste in our environment. Also, you’re wasting a ton of money in the long-run. So, get yourself some reusable cloth face masks. They come in different colors and styles, so you can match them with your outfits. You can just wash and dry them after every use, and they’re good to go again! You’re saving the environment and your money. Awesome!
3 – Choose an aesthetic acrylic face shield
There are some places that will also require you to wear face shields. These can include malls, museums, and other closed areas. There are many disposable face shields available, but just like surgical face masks, these are disposable. And they don’t really look that good, either. The cool thing about acrylic face shields is that they come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. You can choose one or a few that can match with your aesthetic preference. They don’t have to look tacky!
After each use, just wash or sanitize them and dry them! You’re doing your part in lessening plastic waste and you’re also saving money!
4 – Versatility with a crisp white shirt
A crisp white button-down shirt is one of the most versatile clothing items you can have in your closet. You can dress it up for formal occasions by tucking it in your pants and adding a belt. Or you could dress it down by folding the sleeves and matching it with a pair of shorts for a casual stroll at the park or meet-up with some friends. The possibilities with a crisp white shirt are endless! But the problem with it is that it can become yellow after some time, so get yourself a new crisp white shirt that you can get a ton of use from.
5 – A pair of white sneakers for everything
Just like a crisp white button-down shirt, a pair of white sneakers is also just as versatile. You can wear these shoes for semi-formal events and get away with them! And casual strolls or long walks are more fun and easy with a comfy pair of white sneakers. Make sure they’re clean, but some dirt can also add to their character. White sneakers should be an essential to any closet because of their comfort factor and versatile style.
Keep it simple, be safe, and have fun!
So there you have it, five simple ways to upgrade your wardrobe for 2021. Things are starting to look up, so it’s good to also look good when going out.
