These days, our social media acronyms have suddenly taken major shifts due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. What were once OOTDs and YOLOs have turned into AFK and WFH. With most companies rolling out mandatory work from home arrangements for their employees, another thing that has changed is our choice of clothes for when we turn on that laptop and log in for the daily grind.
Here are some of our top picks for sustainable and ethically-made loungewear brands that will get you ready for both getting down to business at home, or binging Too Hot to Handle.
