Sporting anything but supremely comfy loungewear — and the occasional Zoom-ready blouse — while in quarantine might seem pointless. But hear us out: You can dress up a little without looking (or feeling) silly. To zhuzh up your current lockdown aesthetic, consider…the dress. Remember those? (No, your robe doesn’t count.) The now-oft-neglected piece works surprisingly well for the strange indoor-and-sometimes-outdoor lifestyles we’re living now, even as temperatures turn. From easy-breezy chiffon maxis to a floor-length cardigan that’s more versatile than you could’ve ever imagined, these styles were made to mix and match, layer, and ultimately breathe some much-needed life back into your wardrobe — without breaking the bank. Still don’t believe us? Click through for four styling ideas — handpicked from the selection of autumn-ready frocks, accessories, and beauty products at Macy’s — that just might convince you otherwise. Neither a floral-printed midi dress with a sexy slit nor glossy tortoiseshell platforms might’ve been your first choice for quarantine clothing. But what is a long dress if not an elevated nightie, and heels aren’t a problem when you’re not going any farther than the living room.

But we believe in you and your ability to reintroduce both to your wardrobe in one go. Treat the sweater dress as a long top over a pair of cropped, wide-leg jean. To finish, just add a horse-bit loafer, a swipe of mascara, and gold collar necklace.
