It’s official: The days of working from home in my pajamas are behind me. What felt like a pure thrill in the early weeks of sheltering in place quickly turned into a recipe for sluggish, repetitive days with no way of distinguishing one from the next. Then, last Tuesday morning during an unexpected burst of energy, I started getting ready as though I were, in fact, going to the office. Admittedly, our Who What Wear offices have a fairly relaxed dress code that embraces stylish athleisure looks wholeheartedly, but still—I wore real clothes! And as a result, my days became so much more productive and positive.
I can now share that I’ve found the perfect (and realistic) outfit formula that makes for easy styling and super-cute results: Start with athletic basics (I’m currently very into PUMA’s Forever Luxe collection), and simply incorporate a few on-trend fashion pieces to feel pulled-together, chic, and insanely comfortable. Plus, it means I’m always ready for anything, whether that’s popping out to run an errand with my dog, meeting a friend for a socially distanced coffee, or jumping on a last-minute Zoom call without fear of turning on my video. Just like the five on-trend outfits below, the new normal is decidedly comfortable, chic, and casual-cool, and I’m here for it. Like what you see? Catch PUMA’s Forever Luxe collection on Bloomingdale’s site and in stores at the Beverly Center, Glendale Galleria, SoHo, Willow Grove, and Tysons Corner Center.
