Is it really necessary to dress up while working from home? For the fashion girl, the answer's a resounding yes. Personal experience speaking: Putting on a nice little 'fit despite having nowhere further to go than the living room helps banish laziness and is great for productivity-focused motivation. Nobody ever said you had to be a slob!
Here, five of-the-moment trends you can actually don on your slowest WFH days.
1. Cardigan sets
It doesn't matter if you prefer the candy-hued cropped plaid versions the TikTok kids all adore or Aimee Song's sleek, subtle longline option—the point is, feel free to cozy up on your couch in a cute matchy set reminiscent of the '90s. There's always something instantly put-together about au courant co-ords.
2. Silk robes
Well, this one's a no-brainer. The zanier the better, say the likes of Martine Cajucom and Jess Wilson, whose Olivia Von Halle and Bernadette picks are always bright, bright, bright. Plus points if you've got quirky illustrated zebras or tigers or butterflies drawn on, to boot.
3. Fluffy bedroom slippers
Ever since UGG gave other subverted-sandal brands a run for it after dropping a fresh new line of outrageously plush slides, you can say our love affair with fluffy bedroom slippers has been rekindled. Raise a hand if you remember 2016's manic obsession with those Fenty Puma pairs.
4. Printed leggings
No need to mimic Leandra Medine Cohen's sparkly stiletto and tweed jacket combo, obviously. Adapt a printed legging into your regular quarantine wardrobe rotation by pairing it with one of dad's unused oversized shirts or a colorful chunky knit...or, if summer's indoors and air-conditioning is scarce, a thin white sando.
Preferrably thrown with calculated nonchalance over a graphic T-shirt and well-worn jeans, your beloved mother's heirloom pearl strand is the quickest way to loungey luxe. That huge old college varsity tee you irreversibly consider pambahay? Upgraded, as Marie Wibe Jedig readily demonstrates.
