Once Labor Day is over, Washingtonians typically swap out their summer wardrobe with fall staples. Think knit sweaters and denim jackets replacing patterned sundresses and bright and bold tank tops. These days, with nowhere to go, quarantine has put a bit of a damper on the idea of dressing up. Still, fall clothes are here—and although we’re practicing social distancing, it doesn’t mean you can’t buy in.
Whether you’re hoping to impress a colleague with a new top on Zoom or dining at an outdoor patio (we’ve heard these places are a must-try), here are a few of our favorite fall fashions that are both functional and comfortable. Bonus: Some of these products are from local shops.
