The Irish Women To Follow For At-Home Outfit Inspiration

For these women, getting dressed has been a welcome release of expression.

Meet the real women who featured in our 'Dressing Up Like No One's Watching' story...

If you've yet to pick up the May issue of Irish Tatler, then you're in for a treat. Not only does it deliver some much-needed distraction from wall-to-wall news reports, but it's also our attempt at survival guide when it comes to self-isolating. 

As a fashion magazine, we often muse on the merits of getting dressed up according to whatever you want to tell the world about yourself on a given day, but thanks to commune-living and the actual intention of going out in the world being removed, we wondered what was – if at all – motivating real people to get up, dress up and show up?

So, to satiate our own curiosity, we asked some fashion industry doyennes to talk us through their go-to, go nowhere, outfits for the new issue, and the feedback we got back was really interesting.

From listening to what their heart of hearts desires (no.jeans.ever!) to putting together outfits purely to feel like their old selves, our style-set seemed to make tangible connections between clothing and their sense of purpose.

Suffice to say, if the joggers-and-a-hoodie repertoire is feeling a little old by now and you're after some fresh inspiration for cool, at-home outfits, then allow us to introduce the women to follow...
