Whether you're on the hunt for comfy office separates or new to the work-from-home game and seeking a way to look polished on video conference from your couch, we've got a solution for you. This is the year of the fleece and you can literally get away with wearing sweats anywhere, whether that be your home office, a client off-site, or a brunch date with friends. Here's five different ways to style your Old Navy fleece pieces so you'll always looks put together while still being ultracomfortable.

Business Casual


Emphasis on the casual. Swap your business suit for a matching sweatsuit and sneakers. The subtle tie-dye keeps the monochromatic look fairly neutral, while a slightly oversize blazer polishes up your look, so you look more sophisticated than slouchy.

Off-Duty Chill


Nothing says "weekend comfies" like a pair of wide-leg sweatpants and a matching pullover. But this camel color elevates your Saturday and Sunday uniform, making it appropriate for your 9-to-5, too. Just try pairing it with a crewneck white tee, pointy-toe slides, and silver hoop earrings

Cozy Chic


Polka-dot slip skirt? Check. Sherpa sweatshirt? Check. Tie-up flats? Check. Looks like you've got all of this year's biggest trends accounted for! Never be afraid to play around with sections of your closet, mixing and matching sweats with your dressier pieces. When done right, the combination gives off a total cool-girl vibe.

Comfy Cool


Wear sweatpants, but make them fashion. It's totally possible to dress up your favorite pair of joggers when you add a flowy blouse and heeled sandals. No one will ever accuse you of being underdressed when you look this put-together.

Laid-Back Polish


Yes, this style trick works with dresses, too! Wrap your favorite hoodie sweatshirt over your shoulders or around your waist for an extra layer that helps pull your whole ensemble together. The over-your-shoulder look gives off a preppy, cool vibe, while tying it around your hips helps cinch your waist and add shape and definition to a classic shift dress.
