I spoke to the Guardian on how clothes have become another way to psychologically transport ourselves on holiday.
“Many people are craving their pre-pandemic lifestyles. As such, they have begun utilising their wardrobes as a tool not only to experience escapism but also to regain a sense of normalcy. You may not be able to hop on a plane and unwind on a beach … but you can … [dress] the part to amplify the experience of your staycation.”
“Studies have shown that outlandish dressing or simply dressing in a way that is outside of your day-to-day can carry a tension-release dimension.”
