"Working from home is the new norm for us, in particular, for a while. So we wanted to share some of our favorite pieces to be comfortable and chic when working remotely and social distancing."

"Since we both conduct business out of our home offices on the regular, we have firsthand experience in crafting WFH looks. We know there may be the temptation to stay in your old pajamas all day long (we get that), however, we think making the transition from the PJs you slept in the night before to something else can inspire you to stay motivated and create a positive structure for the day ahead."

"So with that, we're here to showcase our top comfy picks that work for us, but could definitely work for anyone at any age. Bonus, most of these items can also be mixed and matched to create that perfect combo of cozy and chic. (Also note that some of the photos below were taken before we started social distancing but are used here for outfit inspiration.)"

"Let's start at the top. For the ultimate comfort, think sweatshirts, cozy sweaters, T-shirts, and button-ups. For a bit of a chic vibe, try throwing on a flowy blouse and tying it at the front." On Melissa Meyers: Frame crew-neck

On Janet Gunn: Grayson top

"A style once reserved for the gym or a fitness class, leggings and joggers have made their way into our daily lives. It’s the perfect choice for transitioning from an at-home workout to at-home working." On Melissa Meyers: Varley leggings

"It's all about fabric with extra stretch when choosing jeans or pants to wear when working from home. You want to be comfortable whether sitting behind your desktop or curled up on the couch with your laptop." On Melissa Meyers: Mother jeans, Elizabeth Reid socks. On Janet Gunn: Veronica Beard pants, Elizabeth Reid socks

"Thanks to a plethora of stylish brands out there, sweat sets are a favorite in chic comfort." On Melissa Meyers: Sundry sweatsuit. R0AM slippers. On Janet Gunn: Aviator Nation sweatsuit, R0AM slippers

"It's nice to have comfortable shoes to keep close by for around the house or when you step outside to get some fresh air. Our favorite styles are fashion slides and slipper styles." On Melissa Meyers and Janet Gunn: Jill Burrows slippers

The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
