Whether we like it or not, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it forever. So even when the whole world settles from it, there are still going to be practices that follow us into normalcy.

No one is sure if the COVID way to celebrate aka Zoom is going to be a thing afterward but learning how to put outfits together when the situation arises is a great idea. A step-up from that are drive-by events that people throw for their loved ones nowadays. It is a situation whereby everyone is physically present but social distancing rules are being abided by.

We’ll take that over nothing any day and show up looking great for it. So if you have one of those coming up, here’s a simple guide you can follow.
Wear breathable fabrics

Because the virus spreads through body fluids, it is best to stay away from fabrics that will make you sweat. We are not saying a nice breathable fabric like cotton won’t make you sweat but we suggest you don’t aid the process.

Opt for comfortable pieces

We know how exciting it is to go out there and be merry but it is best that you never forget the situation at hand. Wear something comfortable so whatever happens at the party or on your way there, you are able to adapt. Free/loose fitting outfits will definitely do the trick.

Accessorize to the teeth
