How splendid indeed would it be to look casually fashionable when you run out to Starbucks during a work-from-home day? Find all your comfy yet chic hang-around wear at the flagship Westchester store of a retailer whose biz started a decade ago with a super-soft, iconic T-shirt. From there, it grew into a whole casual lifestyle brand for the entire family. Ombre cardigans? Watercolor maxi skirts? Print flip-flops and leggings? All the latest trends are present and accounted for, with most items less than $300 each.
