I’ve been thinking a lot about clothing and appearance a lot lately. I work from home, so though I do spend a fair amount of time in Zoom meetings, the company I work for has a very casual culture and I can basically wear whatever I want. My decisions about what I wear and how I present myself are all based on my comfort and preferences. I could wear a plain black crewneck and minimal (or no) makeup every day and that would be fine. But instead, I find myself exploring what I actually want to put on and look and feel like.
The early days of the pandemic gave me the opportunity to explore fashion and appearance choices with a lot less outside pressure, and I’m doing my best to keep as much of that experience with me as I can. Sometimes clothes and makeup are mindless and functional for me, and that can be fine, but sometimes I choose to be intentional about constructing and exploring identity through appearance. Right now, that construction is a performance with an audience of one, and I’m really enjoying it.
