After roughly two weeks of self-isolation – for our Northern Hemisphere friends, that could vary up to eight or more weeks – it’s possible you have regressed into a shell of your former stylish self. Denim and leather have been ousted in favour of sweatpants or boxers and you’ve lost all sense of time – what day is it again? This is not unusual, however, we can guarantee that dressing up your WFH look, even for the now dubbed ‘Fancy Friday’s, will make the woes of the current pandemic just a little brighter. And we’ve officially found our style muse for iso.
Jeremy O Harris, an American actor and playwright is best known for his work on Slave Play and Water Sports and since lockdown, we’re stealing his looks. Hailing from London, his current Instagram following of 57,000 is treated to almost daily uploads of his WFH fits. Taking a leaf from A$AP Rocky‘s book, O Harris is a fan of the babushka headscarf, loafers in doors and the occasional addition of classic jeans.
When he isn’t dressed to the nines, a lush robe suffices with some heavy bling.
Tailoring doesn’t go astray with the 30-year-old either, and he so expertly pulls off a Thom Browne suit with striped crew socks.
Research suggests that wearing shoes with your WFH look aids in concentration and productivity as we normally wear shoes to the office. And that should go for your daily wear. So, if you’re feeling flat take inspiration from the Instagram feed of Jeremy O Harris and add these new pieces to your kit for instant revival of your former self.
