If you've been working from home, you've likely adopted a new wardrobe. What used to be loafers and slacks has probably turned into slippers and joggers as you try to keep comfortable while checking off your to-do list from the couch.
Now that stores and restaurants are starting to reopen, it's a great time to upgrade your style to include some trendy pieces that are perfect for fall.
Style expert Sydney Sadick joined Hoda and Jenna to share a few simple tips for upgrading those quarantine trends you don't want to leave behind. She found ways to polish up a pair of joggers and ways to turn a Zoom top into one you can wear for socially distant get-togethers.
See how you can make the transition with these trendy clothing essentials, shoes and accessories.
The sweatpants alternative
1. Express High Waisted Cargo Joggers

3. Zara Beaded Agate Stone Earrings
These unique earrings will make any outfit pop. The agate stone and beaded details will definitely make these stand out from the crowd. We're also loving the hammered metal bottoms that are contemporary and timeless.
4. Asos Public Desire Harlow Sandals

Updated tie-dye dress
1. Missguided Blue Tie Dye Midi Dress
The tie-dye trend resurfaced a few months ago — and we're thrilled that it's here to stay. Instead of wearing your DIY shirt on the couch, upgrade your look to include this midi dress from Missguided.

From sweatshirt to sweatshirt-dress
