How To Make Your Post-Pandemic Fashion Debut

For those unfamiliar, to be "in one's bag" means to work with singleminded determination towards a goal, such as the accumulation of wealth or learning Esperanto. But for some of us, the phrase took on a different meaning during that year at home: to keep grinding until we could emerge with a stronger style game than ever before.

Through moodboarding, a running list of outfit ideas, and more than a few dress-up sessions, we've condensed months of research into three enormous looks for returning to (non-sweatpants) society. What ties these made-to-mingle 'fits together? Silhouettes that actually show your shape, can't-look-away colors — and a full-to-bursting sense of joie de vivre. Ahead, in partnership with Macy's and content creator JaLisa Vaughn, see how we're planning to make our post-pandemic fashion debut.
If we're not rolling up to the club in this (then promptly back out because who are all these people), we don't want it. With body-hugging ruching and an asymmetrical cut, this peach dress says, "I'm the main character, full stop."

For a celebratory dinner inside a restaurant, we'd pair this mock-neck top with a polished leather wrap skirt. Remember that while white might not be the safest option around bolognese, there's nothing like it to make brights pop.

You know, sometimes after surviving a global pandemic, you just want to wear a lacy dress. We say go for it with a mini, off-the-shoulder babydoll number.
