There's no doubt our lives have all been affected in some way or another due to the current circumstances—with concerns both big (childcare, income, elderly parents, loneliness) and small (no haircuts or manicures) looming large. It's the little things we're looking to in order to uplift us right now—from a great Netflix show to baking banana bread to putting on a statement pair of earrings with our sweats.
While we editors continue to provide you with the best in fashion news and shopping (knowing a little lighthearted distraction can be helpful), we have also been curious to see what fashion and beauty items are sparking joy among you—our Who What Wear readers and community. I reached out on our social media channels and did some digging. From bold lipsticks to tie-dye sweatpants, scroll below as we share the fashion picks our community is wearing, shopping, and loving right now. Stay safe, everyone!
"I was with my family in Arizona when COVID-19 hit New York really badly, and I decided to stay out here, but my March wardrobe quickly became a bit too warm for local conditions. I ordered a few versatile pieces that are comfortable to hang out in all day but aren't literally pajamas, and this one is my absolute favorite. The neckline is polished and appropriate for video calls, and it's easy to dress up or down." — Kate Winick
"My signature shade of lipstick—Charlotte Tilbury's Tell Laura. I realize I'm cheesy for having my favorite lipstick have my name in it, but it's absolutely perfect! A bright, wearable red. I'm also loving wearing pieces from my vintage jewelry collection."
"I recently bought the Hawley leather shearling coat from All Saints which I had planned to wear in Europe in the fall and in NYC in winter but it doesn't look like it's going to happen so I've just been staring at it in my closet. I don't regret buying it (even if I live in a tropical country). It's there to remind me that I will get to wear it someday and it gives me hope for future travels." — Gigi Varua
"I just bought a bunch of new bras and panties. Decided I needed some bras that were not underwire! I know a lot of ladies are enjoying the 'no bra' thing… I just can't do it. My undergarments keep me feeling sexy in a crazy world!" — Lisa Mimler Mariscal
"The new shoes I ordered are sparking joy! I just got a pair of Reebok sneakers that have 'It's a Man's World' crossed out on the heel of the shoe as well as a new pair of snakeskin booties. I also got a new pair of overalls that go great with both pairs of shoes." – Abi Sparks
"Some glitter eyeliner on the lower lash line does the trick for me! Even when I'm only wearing mascara, say for a Zoom call or a quick grocery run, it makes me feel extra and reminds me of the intricate makeup looks I'd wear when going out in the city." — Ana Popociciu
