Is FOGO the new FOMO? Author Alexis Swerdloff of The Cut penned an essay, in which she points to massive overexposed, social media-saturated events, like Coachella and South by Southwest, for driving her to develop the opposite of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)—which she has aptly coined FOGO, the Fear of Going Out. "Okay, well not literally a fear of going out. I still love a party," she writes. "But I have an active non-desire to attend the mass-Instagrammed events that clog up all my social-media feeds on several-week-long intervals throughout the year."
Our thoughts on the issue? Personally, the last thing I want to do after a long day at the office is to interact with people, let alone leave the comfort of home and party it up in a club. I have FOGO big time, and I've had it before I even knew what it was. As a homebody, I'm perfectly content lounging at home, binge-watching Netflix, and curling up with a good book. And so, for my fellow FOGO-ers out there, here are three outfit combos to wear at home that make good on both comfort and style.
