You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
In this week’s dive into the internet’s sales bins, we found a bunch of loungewear for men and women that’s nice enough to wear on a Zoom call with your boss, and some housewares — from Breville, Boy Smells, and Aesop — that’ll make your time indoors a little more comfortable.
This women’s Better Sweater is as soft as your favorite hoodie (and even has a front pocket for snacks and your phone), but it will look a little more presentable for your next Zoom chat with your boss.
Some tried-and-true Patagonia Baggies, for warmer-weather lounging.
These buttery soft Eberjey pajama pants are also on sale, for when you’re ready to swap out your current sweatpants.
For the guys, some new joggers from Alo Yoga that are as good for an at-home flow as video gaming on the couch.
A charming flamingo dog toy in case your pup needs some entertainment, too.
David Pogue’s favorite noise-canceling headphones are on sale at Best Buy, in case you need to self-isolate from the people you’re self-isolating with.
Or, if you’ve been jealous of all your co-worker’s pups, here’s a Dalmatian-covered pajama set for just $40.
Take an extra 30 percent off this slouchy striped tee at Madewell with the code HAPPYPLACE.
You can also stock up on statusy Boy Smells candles at Need Supply, which is still running its sitewide 25 percent off sale.
Or pick up a statusy bath mat from Cold Picnic.
If you want to splurge a bit, this Aesop hand cream, scented with vetiver and bergamot, will keep those overwashed hands from cracking and look nice on your bathroom counter.
