It is amazing how it has all changed from one moment to another, isn’t it? Just in a matter of days, the coronavirus has completely transformed our way of living. If we think about it, from the way in which we relate to others, even the clothing we wear is different now. Probably, most of us are in pajamas just at this instant; just like yesterday… And the day before yesterday. Our wardrobe must be wondering what happened to us!
And is that who has not been questioned: “what do I wear street clothes if I’m going to stay here in the house? After all, to me nobody is going to see and so I am more comfortable.” This has some logic, but… Mmm, what if it will be good to stay like this all day, every day? Spoiler alert: no. Obviously, it is not good.
Many of us are working from home and the simple fact of bathe and change our clothes makes a sort of click in our mind and puts us in the mood indicated. Rather, we change the chip. Stay in your pajamas and work lying down in bed can negatively affect our productivity and even our mood.

When we’re at home, it is ideal to dress with comfortable clothes, but that does not mean that we are to “walk in, murder” all the time, right?. The comfort and the style itself combine and to prove it we have made a small list of some of the garments are comfortable and fashionable, perfect for this quarantine.
