Silky Pants, Secret Slippers, and More Ways to Win WFH

In partnership with our friends at Vince

2020 brought out the slacker in everyone new to working remotely—not attendance-wise, but in terms of attire. And who can blame us? When finishing a Peloton ride forty-five seconds before your first meeting is the sign of a highly optimized work-from-home schedule, playing hooky from wearing heels just makes sense. But with the summer of tie-dye fading, we’re ready for a WFH refresh that makes sense now and translates to a future where we’re safely back to business outside the home. It’s a tall order, but it seems our favorite brands have anticipated our needs. Below, five ways we’re styling this season’s neutral knits, muted tones, and billowy silhouettes.

  1. 1

    LAYERED COLLARS

    Don’t be afraid of the double collar: Start with a light knit button-up (we love this bark-brown version), then add a substantial sweater with a wide, zip-up collar to make it all that much more modern. Skip the necklaces and save the sparkle for a pair of double-drop hoops.

    JUST ADD OUTERWEAR

    Italian-made wool trousers, a sweater in misty-Pacific-dawn blue, black leather low-tops, an oversize camel coat that doubles as a cocoon of inner contentment. If you have to hit the streets for a socially distanced meeting, this is how you do it.

    SLEEK MEETS SOFT

    If business on top, snuggly on the bottom is your Zoom MO, this leather jacket is the fall splurge your torso deserves. The silky butterscotch shade is versatile, and it has serious styling game: Wear it open over a white tee, belted at the waist, or with a turtleneck peeking out—and always with a pair of shearling slides.

    COOL COLORBLOCK

    A little color is a lifesaver for the visually understimulated—and an instant mood-booster if you’re trying to shake off a case of at-home blues. Flaxen yellow, soft stone blue, and light-catching gold dial back the brights for a palette that’s more California landscape than crayon box.

    THE NEW SUIT

    Casual Friday has gone the way of the landline. Instead, go big in fluid fabrics, vintage-inspired earrings, even a blazer. You’re not doing it for the meetings—you’re doing it for the martini waiting for you at 5 p.m.
