The feeling of cosy and comfort has become a major vibe since working from home became a new normal. Perhaps that's why blanket dressing was one of the major trends of 2020. Warm, fuzzy outfits and layers provided the warmth that the harsh year failed to provide. Currently, our office wear consists of a chic top with PJ bottoms (all ready for 'em Zoom meetings), all snug under a puffy quilt with coffee by our side. Relatable much? The sudden dip in the air has us holding on dearly to our comforters, which is why it's officially the season of shawls and scarves. Since we're appreciating any form of layers for that extra dose of warmth, these act like our guardian angels.
