If you have been working in a corporate setup then you know how Fridays are lighter days, with the weekend starting right after you end work. In many offices, Fridays are the day when employees ditch the formals and dress up casually to work. But as Coronavirus lockdown in several nations has forced people to work from home, every day is like sitting in pyjamas. And while that is comfortable, people are ditching the casuals to dress up in formals on every Friday in quarantine. A fun trend called #FormalFridays has been started online which has people posting their pictures, all suited and formally dressed as they log in to work from home. Popular celebrities are also being a part of this trend, which first started in Australia.
