HOW TO BUILD YOUR POST-PANDEMIC WARDROBE
By Talitha Ward
Finding your style again after cycling through numerous sweatpants for the last year and a half is no easy feat but luckily our LDC brands have you covered with all the pieces to rebuild your post-pandemic wardrobe.
Things are looking brighter and we are all well over ready for date nights that don’t depend on the weather, long-postponed weddings, office gossip and many a staycation. Finding your style again after cycling through numerous sweatpants for the last year and a half is no easy feat but luckily our LDC brands have you covered with all the pieces to rebuild your post-pandemic wardrobe.
Gone are the days where your outfit is hidden beneath your thickest coat as you endure rain and storm for your carefully booked outdoor date night. The return of indoor dining means, safe from temperamental British weather, the long-awaited chance to turn a look is back. When dressing for date night we like to choose versatile but eye-catching pieces. Conflict of Ego's Lara Silk Corset has all the characteristics of a stand-out piece - carefully draped details, an off-the-shoulder silhouette and pairs perfectly with a pair of leather trousers, like the Nora Cynical Pants by Aggi. Accessorise with simple jewellery, we love the Patty Rose Silver Single Herringbone Necklace, for the perfect debut date night look.
Wedding season is set to be back in all its glory and a backlog of postponed events just means more chances to be seen in your pandemic purchases. At LDC we champion sustainability so a look with longevity will always be our pick! For this season we love the Silk Hand Marbled Dress by Edward Mongzar. Made ethically and responsibly in England from high quality silk, this is a piece that will last you for many events to come. Style with the Ajax 50 Heels by Lamperti Milano and finish the look with a pair of delicate earrings, like the Tiana Jewel Rose Quartz Earrings for an instant head-turning look.
BACK TO THE OFFICE
With many of us set to be returning to the office, restyling your favourite go-tos and accessorising with new, sustainable pieces is the best way to refresh your style. The pandemic has seen a trend towards more relaxed tailoring as we look for a blend of formality and comfort. If you are still in WFH mode, Z.G.Est’s Wide Leg Trousers have a wide leg with a tailored waist for a comfortable, fashion-forward silhouette. Pair with your favourite top, we love the of the Ingenio Top by Maqu, and accessorise with a pair of striking earrings, like Alison Fern’s Kendric Jade set, for a standout look.
Finally summer is fast approaching and after a long winter we are all well over ready to be frolicking on the sunny shores of Cornwall or immersed in the lush scenery of the Cotswolds. A classic dress is our summer staycation go-to for so many reasons – versatile, comfortable and best of all, an all in one look. Our favourite is the Rhaea Satin Slip Dress by Cocoove, throw on your favourite sandals, the OPS Beige pair by Ganor Dominic are our fave, and a fun accessory, like the Marine Henrion Robbie Hat and you’re good to go.
