The WFH Denim Guide

We are one week into California’s Shelter in Place mandate and we are already counting down the days to opening up the shops and getting back to our daily hustle. Until then however, we are making sure that we are still providing you with all the informative and entertaining content we can. As we find ourselves working from home all the time, finding the balance between comfortable, casual and “professional” while working from home can be quite the struggle. While denim may seem like a crazy item to include in your WFH warrior wardrobe, it feels surprisingly refreshing to actually make the extra effort to pull on some jeans and change things up. On this week’s Editorial, we are highlighting two of our most comfortable “WFH” jeans that will take you effortlessly from the couch to the kitchen, and maybe even outside for a bit of fresh air.

If you don’t know Moussy denim, then you're in for a treat. With each pair handmade in Japan, Moussy Vintage has perfected the art of jean creation. Our first pair of jeans in the line up is the Glendele Skinny in Light Blue. Hand distressed and cut from premium Japanese denim, this tried and true fit returns in a perfect bleached out true-blue wash. These pants retain an edgy destroyed look with a frayed hem and broken in holes while still being super soft and stretchy.  We love the comfortable mid-rise paired with the perfect inseam ankle crop length. While there won’t be any downtime breaking these in, the 4% polyester and 1% spandex blend means these will stretch and grow significantly. These run slightly small but will give quickly, size up if between sizes but keep in mind these will grow with little wear so be aware of this as you choose your size. We find that Moussy are perfectly scaled for petite people under 5’3”, an ideal crop length for many (no hemming necessary!) but for the taller ladies out these this might not be the pant for you or you’ll want to consider wearing these with a tall boot or high top. As you kick back with your laptop, keep cozy in one of our favorite new cashmere sweaters from Brochu Walker: The Looker Layered Lace V Neck in Ivory. Featuring subtle, yet romantic lace detailing embedded in the soft v neckline and hem, they’ve done all the hard work for you to make this plush, slightly oversized sweater, give off that elevated layered look. This outfit is equal parts chic and comfortable, the best combo for when you’re ready to shed those tired PJs.

Our second go-to WFH denim is perfect for those of you looking for a pant that looks like a jean, but feels like...nothing! The Sophie High Rise Crop in Claremont by AGOLDE if one our all time best selling jeans. These super skinny feel a bit “jegging-like” in their incredible light weight, soft stretchiness, but still look like jeans. We love the raw cut hem (that doesn’t grab at the ankle) paired with the higher waist. The 2% spandex makes these jeans feel as if they were a second skin, but keep denim details like fading and whiskering throughout. With an inseam of 25.75”, these are also great for the petite as a true ankle length jean. If you are a little bit leggier, these may seem a little short but these have been overall quite universally loved by those wanting a serious “comfort pant”. We often wear these to travel, but since WFH often demands the same comfort criteria as a long haul flight, we love to treat the Sophies like our favorite fashion sweatpant. For an easy way to keep your fashion game alive, throw on the Rib Stitch Cardigan in White by Moussy.  This cropped sweater is the perfect piece to kick back and relax in with heavy cotton rib knit. The off-white coloration and oversized tortoise buttons make this elegant and easy to outfit with your favorite high rise denim. Roll up the sleeves and take in the scenery...in the comfort and safety of your own home!
