Believe it or not, it’s time for the bi-annual closet clean out. Whether you need to downsize, upgrade, or both, there’s no better moment to reevaluate and start with a fresh perspective than the early days of spring. Plus, the chaotic state of the world is making small changes -- like finally ditching that Hervé bandage dress from 2010 that’s been collecting dust in the back of your closet -- feel like major victories.

For many of us, we’ve not been cooped up at home with this much time on our hands since we were teenagers. In a way, it feels like a prolonged limbo state. We’re stuck between the last week of summer (minus the time spent in the sun) and the first day back to school. Though we’re a bit older now, you’re never too old for something to look forward to, which is why this week’s curation is designed to inspire your outfit for the first day back to work post-quarantine.

After weeks (and weeks) of hoodies, sweats and sneakers, the first day back to work is an occasion to get dressed up. Wear something bolder than usual -- like a lime green Versace top -- or remind yourself what tailored trousers feel like again (we love a white pair by Lemaire). Maybe you’ll go all out and put on heels again. We think a vintage Gucci pair might convince you. Whether your office is business casual or just plain casual, you’ll likely find a new favorite below. We never thought we'd catch ourselves dreaming about a day at the office.
