In our current era of social distancing, adjusting to a new normal doesn't have to be uncomfortable — at least where your wardrobe is concerned. Maybe you're new to the work-from-home world, or you're in need of cozy loungewear that's also acceptable for greeting intrepid Instacart or Postmates deliverers at your door (don't forget to select contact-free drop off, please!)
Whatever the case, we've rounded up comfortable staples that will keep you looking stylish (even if it's just for your partner, pets, or house plants) while supporting L.A. designers, brands, and boutiques. See our favorites from labels like Reformation, Madhappy, Parachute, Rachel Pally, and more, and stay tuned as we'll be sharing more picks for your home office, self-care routine, and more.

These cheetah print pieces by LNA — which just happen to be on sale — will keep your basics kit from looking too neutral. (And if you've been too shy to play with patterns, now's the time to try it at home first.)
Reformation has channeled the sportiness of the '70s into these sustainable shorts, which come in navy and vintage white options.
These vintage-inspired pants by colorful brand Big Bud Press are high-waisted with a loose fit for a casual silhouette that can be dressed up for when we're all ready to head back into the office.
Stockholm-born brand Happy Socks splits its time between Silver Lake and its Scandinavian motherland — and these cheeky accessories are one part foot-warmers, one part mood lifters. Those who aren't feline folks can opt for socks with canines, bananas, or toucans, to name a few other whimsical options.
What's better than pampering your feet in ethically-sourced Mongolian goat cashmere slippers? Knowing that said steppers also support a good cause: Naked Cashmere donates $25 from the sale of each pair to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
