7 Ethical Holiday Outfits

Ethical holiday outfits for holidays at home

This holiday season is different than any other in the lifetimes of most of us.  With the CDC discouraging travel, curfews, shut downs, social distancing or self isolation guidelines mean that we’re going to have a subdued Thanksgiving and holiday season in our homes with a smaller circle of immediate family.  No question it’s been a tough year, crisis after crisis, leading to hopelessness and despair.  While it will take big things to change our collective mood, at a micro level smaller things can lighten your mood during the holidays even for brief moments.  One really small way to find a little light is for you to find a holiday outfit, preferably an ethicalholiday outfit and dress up at home.  In fact there is research out there that finds an interconnectedness between mood and dressing up.  For example, behavioral psychologist Carolyn Mair, in “The Psychology of Fashion”. advocates that dressing up in this unusual holiday would be a great mood boost.  Better if your holiday outfits are ethical or sustainable. We need earth when Covid 19 goes away.  So here is a list of 7 ethical holiday outfits for holidays at home.

7 Ethical Outfits for this Holiday Season
