To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
It’s easy to love late autumn dressing. Harder to fall for winter clothing.
There may only be a few weeks that separate them both but the difference is loud. Gone are the cute blazers as jackets and the bare legs in chunky boots when chilly November winds grab you by the spine. Me, crying? No you are crying.
And like that bummer wasn’t enough, the world is entering lockdown no.2.
So, how do one get through this? I am not gonna lie, I am struggeling. But what I do know is that when life is giving me lemons, I cannot make lemonade in sweatpants. I just can’t. So, lockdown, social distancing and so on or not, I am getting dressed to cheer me, and everyone I see IRL or via a screen, up.
I have with a little help from my friends, made a list.

Nothing says cool like a leather look. It’s without a doubt the easiest way to give a look some attitude. So, even if your catwalk is the length of the distance between your livingroom and your kitchen, make it extra.

Go harder on knits (all-in that is)
Ok I see how doing a meetings marathon in your couch could be more comfortable without leather pants. I am a human too. Switch the leather for some layered knits and compensate for lack of leather with some heavy metal. Could be both music and a necklace. You choose.

If the world was not in a pandemic we would this time a year be sprinkling Hobnob with headlines like Party season attire and Glitter outfits for you next party etc etc. We don’t want you to party now so we wont. But we do want you to dress like you were going to a party because let’s face it life is what you make it. It’s a cliché because it’s true.

Doing a fun coat instead of a classic coat is an instant mood enhancer. It even makes grocery shopping and/or walking your dog fun. But remember, a fun coat do not have to be a weird one. It can be an oversized coat as well. I know you know that but I just don’t want you to feel like more toned down coats are boring just because they lack tiger stripes. But believe me when I say, fun coats obtain a lot of power in a winter wardrobe.
