So you think that being homebound during the pandemic lets you off the hook when it comes to looking polished and presentable? Sorry, but nope – at least according to Vogue magazine, which issued “pandemic-era rules to dress by this fall.”

Assuming you’re not even considering donning icky ripped T-shirts or stained jeans, one sensible Vogue suggestion is to load up on knits, among the comfiest materials out there and one that can really up your fashion quotient.

That can be a good move for Zoomers and hostesses. After all, the holidays are coming up and you’ll want to be well dressed – but still comfortable — for socially distant festivities.

Here are some ideas for nifty knits this season:


Sport Parisian style in this sleeveless viscose blend pullover with asymmetrical bare shoulders. Also comes in black.

Cop.Copine Alegria top, $160, available at cop-copineus.com






Ganni’s sleek knit dress will take you everywhere from Zoom cocktails to nightcaps.

Ganni melange knit square-neck dress, $245, available at Elisa B., 16 E. Holly St., Pasadena, ElisaB.com






Ischiko’s Jacket Gingka 007 makes a fashion statement with sleek stripes and details like a moderate drape and wide, casual cut. Made from a viscose blend with “a touch of cashmere.” Oska suggests pairing it with wide and conical trousers, dresses and skirts.

Pop on this super-soft Scotch & Soda pullover with a relaxed fit and an intarsia knitted floral pattern over your jeans and Zoom in style. The Alpaca-wool blend top invites layering with its short-sleeve design.

Every Pasadena fashionista should own a classic sweater set, and Cop.Copine’s Paresseux cardigan adds a bit of zing to your Zooming in lightly sequined, midnight blue lurex mesh paired with a matching knitted top.
