Your Work from Home Style
April 20, 2020
It’s time to have a serious talk – what’s your outfit game these days? Daytime pajamas and nighttime pajamas? Wearing your old prom dress to check the mail? Whether your style is more Google Chat Glam or Couch Casual, we have some suggestions for pieces you can add to your quarantine closet.
Add a wrap
Got a last-minute Zoom call? No need to change out of your PJs! Simply go to your closet and throw on a cute wrap or kimono! No one will ever know that underneath your fashionable shaw there’s an oversized t-shirt with a cat drinking coffee! Everyone on your conference call will think you’ve got it together!

Comfy and Cute Pants
There’s no denying that elastic waistbands are having a moment in the fashion world right now. But stretchy pants don’t have to be sloppy. In fact, it’s the perfect time to find pants that can easily go from day (on the computer) to evening (on the couch). What’s great about all of these trendy trousers is that they can also be paired with a frilly top or casual t-shirt for a post-quarantine outfit option.

#1 Fashion Trend – Stay Safe
Of course, the most important fashion rule not to break is staying safe during these times. Many retailers have stepped up efforts to keep their customers healthy by making face masks. Johnny Was now has a line of face masks you can purchase on their website. For every pack you purchase, they will donate a pack to front line workers in our community!
Eddie Bauer also has a line of breathable masks for men and women.
You can also create your own mask using a simple scarf or bandana. To learn how you can create your own mask, visit Madewell’s online tutorial!
Stay safe and healthy friends!
We can’t wait to see you on our sidewalks soon!
