Somewhat inadvertently, I became a minimalist. Not solely with the style of clothing and accessories that I gravitate toward - though I do revel in clean lines, classic silhouettes, and neutral colors - but also with my space and the amount of "stuff" in it. For the last three years, I've primarily worked from home (which is a one-bedroom apartment that I share with my fiancé in Manhattan), wherein certain clothing types no longer made sense. While I've always maintained a clean and relatively clutter-free space, I routinely became distracted by the little messes that would pile up around my workspace, from papers to clothing. My focus derailed and shifted into a full-on deep clean of my apartment on more occasions than I'd like to admit. To wit, on days when I had meetings or went into an office pre-COVID-19, I found myself increasingly challenged by getting dressed. Many of the standout styles in my closet lost their luster. The majority of my "investment pieces" felt fussy for the occasions at hand. And newer items I purchased were trickier to style than I imagined. As for the basics, well, they were wearing down after many a default outfit, which often consisted of a T-shirt, blazer, and jeans. For someone who has worked in fashion for the past 10 years, this felt like an epic failure, to say the least. I decided to restrategize and started with a major home and closet clean-out. In turn, my approach to shopping shifted, too. Admittedly, I've been an impulsive shopper and felt buyer's remorse on one too many occasions. But I've managed to curb the habit, which ultimately has made getting dressed easier both on the days I put on "real" clothes and when I work from home in a cute workout set or sweats. Since COVID-19 began, I dug in deeper. I revisited my already pared-down wardrobe and developed new guidelines for myself in terms of the clothing and accessories I keep and how I shop for something new. Keep reading for some of my most significant changes and renewed approach to shopping, from my "wish list" strategy to a more thoughtful consideration of the brands I support and my methods for curbing impulse purchases.

Lately I've been on the hunt for a lightweight pair of comfortable pants that are easy to wear on a day-by-day basis, and something I can even wear during any upcoming road trips. While recently shopping Old Navy for workout clothes, I stumbled upon these Old Navy Mid-Rise Wide-Leg Linen-Blend Pull-On Pants ($20, originally $40) and bought a pair. Within seconds of trying them on, I knew I needed them. The fit was perfect and flattering, but for me, the real selling point is the material. They're lightweight and will keep me cool, but thick enough to offer some stability; they don't feel too thin or see-through. I decided on a black pair because they're easy to wear with just about anything, but they come in four neutral shades and even some printed choices. Since I purchased them, I've been wearing them while working from home and couldn't be happier. The black shade doesn't fade, even though I've washed them several times. I love styling them with sneakers or sandals and a comfy tee. So, if you're headed on a trip soon or just want comfortable pants to wear at home, you'll want a pair for yourself, trust me. Keep reading to shop all the colors - and hey, at prices this good, maybe you can get more than one. Take a look. Related: These 12 Summer Dresses Look Like a Million Bucks, but They're All Under $20

Truth be told, I have been modeling all my lockdown outfits after this Jennifer Lopez throwback look, perhaps without knowing it. She wore this longline cardigan, buttoned only at the top, over a pair of silk lounge pants at ShoWest '96 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Either the image has been subconsciously planted in my head in a dream or this minimalist, monochrome loungewear style is just back again, plain and simple. While Jennifer opted for a soft lilac set, I'm now determined to find matching cardis for all my satin trousers in every color of the rainbow. "This effortless mood is so my move." J Lo's loose pants skimmed the floor, but still allowed us a peek at her heeled sandals and lavender metallic toe polish - this being a beauty move we'd see carried right into the early aughts. There's no denying that the silhouette of a cardigan that's extended a few inches, flowing right over the hips, elongates the frame - especially when part of a monochrome ensemble. While I might be wearing my makeshift coordinates with slippers and a lacy bralette that peeks out ever-so-slightly from my neckline, this effortless mood is so my move. How about a round of applause for some A+ J Lo fashion nostalgia? Related: And ARod's Makes 5! Look Back at Jennifer Lopez's Many Stunning Engagement Rings
