When the coronavirus pandemic sent workers home and lives moved to the lower-resolution virtual world, fashion took a backseat. Crocs became an "it" shoe and "soft pants" filled closets.

As companies welcome back their employees, many people will have to think about what to wear to work for the first time in over a year. So, does that mean we have to change out of our sweats?
