Wherever you call home, we are globally feeling the effects of COVID-19. Whether you are choosing to proactively protect yourself and loved ones through voluntary social distancing, or observing a mandated shelter in place, every single one of us shares the message of togetherness as we learn to live with this pandemic. While sickness and the known can be scary, and even paralyzing, it is up to us to continue to take care of ourselves and those around us. In this week’s editorial, we are going to focus on how we can keep the style alive in the comfort of our own homes, so bundle up, get that “WFH” office running, and join the comfy-chic club.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, then the walls of your home are your new workspace. Although Spring has sprung, and the daylight lives longer, there is still a slight chill in the air, and for those of us cooped up at home, it’s important to stay warm, cozy and somewhat chic. Maintain your appearances in Moussy’s new Japanese made Rib Stitch Cardigan in Black. The latest cropped cotton cardigan featuring a rib-knit and oversized tortoise button, perfect for layering for the “grandpa-chic” look on top of. Amo’s new Long Rib Tank in White is the perfect cotton piece to live in amongst this new reality. Cut in the brand’s signature rib fabrication, this long-length tank is effortlessly easy to style. Featuring an updated sporty high neckline with a narrow cut armhole, this layer offers a fun canvas for stacking necklaces - or in this case - sweaters. Since most denim seems realistically out of the question, kick back in this ultra-soft and drapey pant. The smooth buttery hand-feel of this modal pant and easy silhouette are the best part of The Wide Leg Pant in Black by Modern Basix. Female owned, eco-friendly and made in San Francisco, the Modern Basix is famous for their luxe fabrication: soft to the touch, anti-pill and anti-wrinkle. Trust us- you’re not going to want to take these off. While most of you might not be wearing shoes indoors, we all need to get out for a quick supermarket run. The Desi Knit Loafer in Vintage Tan is a beautiful vegetable-dyed slide featuring a fine leather bound knit perfectly for slipping on for any casual jaunt. Made on a manually operated loom and finished up by hand, the Desi is a true testament to the art of design.
Since it seems we’re all working from home all the time, taking off your pajamas may feel like a difficult task. To combat that opt for something that still feels like jammies but looks a little better - trust us, it’s worth the effort. For the holy grail of crew necks, look no further: The Basic Pullover in Black by Stateside is the ultimate uniform for every comfort warrior. This simple sweatshirt features a simple crew neckline with a slight drop shoulder silhouette. The super plush fabrication is Los Angeles made, using a blend of modal, viscose, polyester and a dash of spandex - this spongy knit is truly the greatest loungewear piece to hit the racks. Break up the black a bit with some print. Camo continues to live on, so we only felt it was appropriate to include the unisex Campus Jogger in Camo by Alternative Apparel. Affordable, comfortable, and eco-friendly, this sweatpant is a triple threat. Made using the brand’s super soft burn-out french terry, this contemporary jogger features a ribbed ankle cuff, a chunky white adjustable drawcord, and back yoke welt pocket. Since this is a unisex style, ladies take one size down from what you normally wear, this runs true to size for men. If you’re ready for some sneakers, never sacrifice comfort and opt for Golden Goose’s Slide in White. This Pavilion favorite just came back in stock and we couldn't be happier! Hand-made in Italy, this sneaker features the brand’s signature distressing and star applique on the side. The classic pairing of suede and leather finished off with an easy side zipper makes this the perfect sneaker to throw on for those quick outdoor excursions.
