Elle editor Ann Slowey tackles an all-important fashion question: What should you wear when you've got the flu? Her answer: "Wrap yourself up in a pair of fashion pajamas—'denim' leggings and roomy argyle sweater—while an instant-cool classic like this Vuitton pea coat with knit collar is the perfect foil to cover up your dirty 'I-haven’t-washed-it-in-a-week' hair. (Cough cough.) My backyard needs the jumbo Burberry sandals to elongate my shrimpy legs but a pair of Converse would be the safer fever-friendly bet." Putting on a giant sweatshirt and staying home is, of course, not an option. [Elle]
