Clothes for the Couch

Written by Kate Falchi — April 07, 2020

It’s no secret that with everyone working from home it has become clear that people fall into two camps- Those who dress like they are still going into the office and those who would rather die than put on a pair of structured anything right now. Either way, we must all work with the unavoidable video conference calls which begs the question- is there a level of dress that could satisfy both camps?  At least from the waist up?


My mother and I fall rightly on either side of this great divide. Today I put on a pair of pants with a button and fly and that felt like a major victory.  Missy on the other hand was in full dress-complete with accessories and makeup when I video conferenced her this morning. It got us thinking… Who is making the best new dressy loungewear for this age of casa-bound living.
