It's getting colder, and we're lucky enough to be faced with a very first world dilemma. Our current situation has us wanting another pair of track pants to put on rotation. But with restrictions in Australia slowly lifting, it's looking like we'll be slowly emerging from indoors in the coming months. And in the Southern hemisphere, that means a winter post isolation wardrobe.
Will our changed world, and increased appreciation for leisurewear, ensure we never suffer another heeled walk or tight waistband at work? Or will we do a 180 and go for complete impracticality and unbound self expression.
We're predicting a happy medium. And condoning a WFH to post isolation wardrobe that allows as many wears as possible. With this in mind, we've put together our favourite pieces of the moment to take you from on-the-couch to outside world. (FYI, we're still leaning towards comfort.)

Okay it's technically a robe, but we're using creative licence. It's quilted, much like a wearable duvet. And it looks good with trousers and white sneakers, as demonstrated above.
The winter boot, on consignment
We still want Toteme's cult Wide Shaft boot. And turns out you can still find it on consignment at Vestaire Collective. We plan to pair the wide leg with sweatpants and call it a trend.
The investment cashmere
Go oversized, for comfort and cool. A cashmere piece can be your best friend forever if you treat it right. And feels just as good on the couch as it does taking the streets.

A lush hair accessory will render your post iso non-haircut unnoticeable.
These pants, by Le 17 Septembre
Undeniably lounge-worthy, yet more than acceptable to wear outside. Wear with a coat and R.M.s or sneakers.
Socks that spark joy
To go undercover outside or as an outfit essential indoors. We love the signature rib from Baserange or indulgent cashmere from Jac+ Jack.
