Reasons to dress up this quarantine

1.       Feel optimistic

It is a proven fact that dressing up makes you feel good. If you dress up before you start your work from home, you might actually feel great despite the current situation. Take a good shower, dress up and put that makeup on. It will only make you feel great about yourself and there are no negative points to that.

2.       Feel confident

Wearing a well-fitted outfit has never gone and never will go in vain. A good outfit has the potential to make you feel much more confident. You will be more invested in the work you are doing from home.

3.       Get rid of the lousiness

One of the most important reasons to dress up is so that you do not feel lazy and lousy. The greatest reason for you to feel lazy is because you are in your pyjamas with a messy bun to accompany it. Fix your hair and wear something nice to make you feel more energetic.

4.       Increase in productivity

It is another given fact that people who dress up deliver better. You will feel rejuvenated if you are well dressed even inside the house. A good amount of energy is all you need to get through the day anyway.

This reason to dress up is the most important one as we do not realize its importance. If you feel like wearing that great outfit for no reason, go for it. Quarantine is no reason for people to not feel gorgeous in their own skin. The best part about this being, fewer chances of your dress getting spoilt.

9.       Best time to experiment

This one of the greatest reasons to get dressed right away. You will be able to experiment with no regrets. You can try out how those funky pants look with the T-shirts you have at home. No room for malfunction.
