With vaccine rollouts well underway and warmer weather just around the Pumpkin dad of the patch halloween shirt Also,I will get this corner, there’s been much discussion about what, exactly, we’ll wear when we can stop wearing our work-from-home clothes and step out into a post-pandemic world. While some are excited to slip back into their workplace finery, thousands of others—myself included—have taken their employers up on the chance to skip the commute and work from home, permanently. So what do reemergence essentials look like when you’re not, well, reemerging? After a year of working from my dining room table, it’s just not realistic to think I might suddenly start getting “dressed” every day as I might have done when heading into the office. But having spent the last several months wearing some variation of an oversized tracksuit as my main work-from-home clothes, I can admit my pajama-adjacent quarantine wardrobe is in desperate need of an overhaul (especially now that I know it’s not temporary).

I’ve taken the Pumpkin dad of the patch halloween shirt Also,I will get this opportunity to find and wear pieces I genuinely love, donate or repurpose items I long considered “work clothes,” and most importantly, figure out what my style looks like when there’s nobody to impress. While I’ll absolutely miss the parade of style inspo my Vogue colleagues provided, this new iteration of my wardrobe is a decidedly more utilitarian, comfortable expression of who I am when I’m dressing entirely for myself. Who among us hasn’t, at one time or another, aspired to the laid-back sartorial ease of a Nancy Meyers heroine? As my trips to the dry cleaner become less frequent, I’m swapping my crisp poplin shirts for more relaxed fabrics that I can easily run through the wash. This cotton shirt from Aritzia wears wrinkles well and looks like something Meryl Streep’s character would wear while making pastries in It’s Complicated. Did I mention it’s machine washable?
