In these current #covidtimes, our online shopping carts might look a bit different than they used to. The biggest fashion decision we need to make each day is, “Do I wear my comfy sweatpants or my REALLY comfy sweatpants?” So, the fashion & beauty team thought we’d share some must-have items to keep you comfy, sane and ZOOM-ready.

Raise your hand if you always dreamt of the day when loungewear would be acceptable to wear daily! ? Well, we’re in luck, because business casual is taking on a whole new meaning in this climate.
Hoodie With Heart
Perfect for staying comfy AND doing good, this “100% Human” hooded sweatshirt is part of Everlane’s 100% Human collection, from which 100% of proceeds will be donated to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund helps food banks across the country support communities impacted by the pandemic.
When it comes to essentials, who doesn’t love the Gap? They’re offering 40% off of some of their most trusty basics on the site now. From loungewear to tees to the IG quarantine trend of the moment – all things tie dye – the Gap has you covered, literally. The company also announced its factories will be making personal protective equipment (PPE) like gowns, masks and scrubs for healthcare workers on the front lines. That’s a win/win.

Now, more than ever, taking care of our bodies and minds is a must. Not only by working out, but also by tending to the self-care needs that we might otherwise have outsourced *sighs while looking at nails*.
Looking for an at-home workout that you’ll look forward to? Peloton is offering a free 90-day trial for all exercise junkies and aspiring fitness gurus who might be missing their gyms during these quarantimes. From yoga to outdoor interval running, there’s a class for every level with differing intensities.
Hair Be Gone
Bye, bye body waxes. Now that we’re stuck at home, it’s the perfect time to turn to subscription services for hair removal needs. Billie, the popular razor company, offers a Starter Kit complete with two blades and a magnetic holder for the shower. Depending on how often you shave, you can select your ideal delivery frequency from every month to every three. We also love that Billie donates 1% of all revenue to important causes around the world – now, they’re contributing to local American food banks serving people affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.
