2.  All dressed up and nowhere to go? Yes, it is #lockdown, but it does not mean going without those calf-workout heels and day dress.

3.  Lingerie as outerwear. SJP’s sleepwear is far from an oversized branded tee. She rocked delicate camis with lush cocooning knitwear or a silk slip, and had the option of throwing over a trench coat in an emergency. Remember the scene where she ran through the snow in her PJs and an amazing fur coat to get to Miranda, who was all alone on New Year’s Eve?

4.  Style your work space. Match a trendy leather-bound diary with your coffee mug or glass of wine, and a picture of “Mr Big” to keep you daydreaming.

5.  Sky-high heels. You know those car-to-desk heels that look oh-so cute, but are unbearable to wear in a nine-to-five job? This is the time to take them out for a spin, and it will help you break them in without walking long distances. Bring those babies out!
