All you need to do is belt up your pillow, carry an accessory, put on shoes that best go with the look, and you are good to go!
The #InstaRainbowChallenge was started by influencers Zeena Shah and Natalie Wall. They asked Instagram users to brighten up their feed and the day of their followers by posting an outfit each day inspired by a different colour. Throughout this week, we’ve seen some bright, colourful lovely posts by people from all over. Here are our favourite picks.
The #DressUpFriday challenge was started by sustainable fashion brand owner Mary Benson in order to advocate how staying in is the new going out. So, what are you waiting for? Step out of your pyjamas and mark the beginning of your weekend already!
If you’ve always wanted to replicate those ramp looks yourself, now is the time. And if you do not have the exact same clothes, take the creative plunge and dig out your very own ‘Home Couture’, literally. I am sure this will add a smile to you otherwise stressed day. It sure did to ours! So, take a look.
Put your dancing shoes on in your fashionable best clothes and get dancing.

Isn’t this lovely? Fashion with a cause is our favourite kind of fashion.
Ditching fancy outfits and switching to pyjamas to party? Now, who wouldn’t want to attend a party like that? Check out #PJParty challenge that’s been the latest addition to the bandwagon.
