As we begin to ease back into our normal routines, there may be a part of us that doesn’t want to say goodbye to this new level of comfort we’ve become accustomed to when getting dressed. It’s even possible that this time spent at home has you thinking of ways that you can continue to wear your pajamas! And although that does sound nice, our stylists have some insight into how you can keep the comfort, while up-leveling your look to something that you can actually wear out of the house - from work to an outdoor lunch with friends. With comfort in mind, we have put together some ideas to incorporate WFH coziness back into everyday dressing, while still maintaining style and sophistication.
Dressed up pajamas
Sure, they might be inspired by pajamas, but these sets bring street appropriate comfort to a whole new level. With cozy fabrics and beautiful shapes, you can actually debut a refined version of your favorite WFH look outside the house. Not only can you wear these sets together, but we also love the flexibility of pairing the top with denim or the bottoms with a simple tank, not to mention the relaxed and dreamy ease of this dress from Sleeper! Find a set that suits you and enjoy the freedom that follows.
Elevated basics are a great way to bring ease and comfort to any wardrobe and any look. Basics can range from a blouse in a soft fabric, to wearable pants that you come back to time and again, or they can simply consist of pieces with clean lines that pair well with the statement items in your closet. These items will give your wardrobe a foundation from which to grow. Simplicity and comfort go hand in hand, and you can expect your basics to help you feel cozy even as you head back out into the world.
Dresses and jumpsuits have the unique ability to provide a complete outfit on their own. A dress maintains comfort and an airy elegance that feels truly relaxed. Opt for this Bondi Born wrap dress that might trick you into thinking you’re wearing a robe, or throw on this satin drawstring jumpsuit from Nanushka that is the epitome of cozy-luxe. Alternately this camisole dress from Calvin Klien is as elegant as it is simple. When it comes to WFH outfit nostalgia, a dress is your best friend, all you have to do is step in.
While at home, loungewear might have been the only thing you actually wore. As you step back out, we believe there are clever ways that you can bring these pieces with you. Our stylists suggest choosing items with character, whether that’s a more sophisticated shape, an elegant fabric, or vibrant patterns or colors. The key to elevating these pieces is intentional pairings - balance cozy pants with a more tailored blouse, or match a simple T-shirt with a full skirt and a heel.
