7 Items That Will Keep You Polished But Cozy During Quarantine

If you’re one of the millions of people telecommuting from your living room couch for the first time, the challenges of working from home are starting to become glaringly real. Sure, maybe not having to shower was exciting at first, although that novelty wears off fast. Plus, Zoom meetings are the new normal. There is a filter to help fake the “I woke up like this” look, but that still leaves your outfit in question and sadly there’s no filter for that. Thankfully there is a middle ground between a blazer and your stained, oversize track shirt from high school. Here are some inspiring infits that are polished but still embody a hygge lifestyle.

Free People Shore To Shore Set, $128

Unsurprisingly, Free People nails it with this cool and casual set from its FP Beach collection — which FYI is packed with plenty of other cozy goal items. This set includes a long sleeve pullover top and tank-style midi dress with distressed seaming throughout for the ultimate lived-in but not too much look, and it comes in 6 different colors. (We also love the Bicoastal Set, as shown in our featured photo.)

Jenni Kayne Shearling Moroccan Slipper, $275

Jenni Kayne Slippers

Ok, so admittedly these are pushing “professional” a little far but no one can see your feet on a video call anyway. Slip into these super comfy Moroccan-style numbers for a luxurious escape. Made in Los Angeles, the back heel folds down and flips up, too. Chic either way.

Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pant, $68

Wide Leg Pant

The bestselling dress pants are now unofficially rebranded as our “work from home” pants. The perfect hybrid of dress, yoga and sweatpants, these stretchy but stylish pants absolutely go with everything -— from a sweatshirt to a button-up — and they are even machine washable.

Anthropologie Basel Ruched Tunic$88

Anthropologie Dress

If you dreamed of sunny spring break days, this simple but polished tunic dress will maybe, just maybe, give you vacation vibes from home. In a cheerful blue, the cotton tunic also has pockets, so you can store your airpods and maybe a snack, or two.

Marine Layer Tate Crop Sweatshirt & Sammi Jogger, Both $88

Marin Layer Sweat Set

We love Marine Layer for their upcycled and eco-conscious initiatives, but our crush grew even stronger when they sent out an email featuring their employees working from home (and looking cute while doing so). We love a company that loves its employees back, so we headed straight for this matching sweatshirt and jogger set, which has streamlined lines that say “casual but comfy.”

Everlane The 100% Human Unisex French Terry Sweatshirt in Small Print, $48

Everlane 100% Human Pullover

It may look like a simple sweatshirt, but this Everlane pullover supports Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. All of the proceeds from the entire 100% Human Unisex collection will help someone in need, and that is something to wear with pride. Each purchase also includes a 100% Human pin and Everlane is a sustainable company: this purchase is a no-brainer, really!

Eileen Fisher Organic Linen Crepe Stretch Long Cardigan, $278

Eileen Fisher Cardigan

The queen of eco-conscious contemporary fashion does it again with this slinky cardigan. Made of organic linen with a little added stretch, Fisher’s cardigan is designed for an easy, straight fit, and works for lounging on the couch or running out to get groceries. But perhaps best of all, like all items from the brand, it’s sustainable, created to last and farmed organically to support clean water and healthy soil.
