Even though 2020's biggest fashion trends shaped up to be, well, cozier than we thought they would upon reviewing the runways, we're glad for them. We ended up discovering the beauty of two- and three-piece lounge sets and slippers that double as shoes — slippers that we now wear almost as often as we wear sneakers, both inside and outside the house.
Most of these essentials also made us feel really good and confident while working from home, whether we're on a Zoom call connecting with coworkers or spending time alone, hunkering down on reports. Just because these staples became must haves in 2020 doesn't mean they're going anywhere, either. In fact, we've got a feeling we'll be bringing them with us far into 2021, so if there's anything you haven't shopped for yet, but have been meaning to try, you haven't missed the boat.
Ahead, you'll find a quick roundup of inspiration photos for how we dressed in 2020 (spoiler alert: oversize hoodies and stylish face masks are, of course, involved), and the hero items we are keeping on rotation for awhile, along with our top picks for getting the look in case there's any item here you haven't tried yet.
