Wake up and get dressed! While it’s easy to fall into the routine of wearing your pajamas all day while you’re working from home, most people would agree that getting dressed actually provides a mindset shift that helps you get into your workflow. While you don’t need to put on a suit and heels, the simple act of changing your clothes presses a reset button that can motivate you to be more productive and feel as if you are going into the office.
The easiest way to create cute WFH outfits is simply to have lots of cozy pieces in your wardrobe that you can mix and match as needed. Need some outfit inspo? Try out the five looks below, which start from the most casual to the most formal WFH look.
Moving into the slightly more dressed-up category, a sweater dress is a dreamy all-in-one look that is cozy, yet pulled-together. A ribbed knit sweater dress is the most flattering as it will fit you like a glove, yet still be stretchy and comfortable for sitting on your sofa or home office chair. If you do need to give a presentation, you can always throw on a classic black blazer to give your dress an even more professional feel. Slip your feet into a pair of wool clogs to complete this look and keep your toes warm.
Crew Neck Sweatshirt and Leggings
For those days when you really just want to stay in something as soft as cozy as your pajamas, do yourself a favor and pull out a pair of black leggings and your favorite crew neck sweatshirt. The key to wearing a sweatshirt without it looking unprofessional is to choose one that is relatively form-fitting in a neutral tone like beige or black. Add some pretty necklaces and a pair of slippers and you’re ready to tackle all your work projects, Zoom calls, and quick walks outside with your dog.
There is not much that is more cozy in this world than a soft jumpsuit, which is why this one-piece-wonder had to make our list. While you probably wouldn’t wear a jumpsuit to work, you can and should wear it while working from home. It doesn’t take any thought to put on a jumpsuit in the morning, yet it’s a really fun outfit that you’ll love to wear on repeat. Plus, a jumpsuit looks like you are wearing a regular top when you are on a video call.
Midi Skirt and Black Turtleneck
Skirts are generally much more comfortable than pants, right? We bet you have some midi skirts that you used to wear to work that have been stowed away in your closet for the past year. Perhaps it’s time to pull them out, because a midi skirt and turtleneck combo is the perfect WFH outfit with a pair of black or tan flats. If someone drops by your house or you need to run to a meeting quickly, you’ll be more than ready to greet them.
Tailored Trousers with a Fine Knit Sweater
Wide-leg tailored trousers are a more practical and professional choice when working from home than a skinny or straight-leg pair of jeans or pants. While they have structure around the waist, they have a more loose silhouette around your legs, which makes sitting all day in them super comfy. For a gorgeous WFH ‘fit suitable for presenting your latest project on Zoom, wear a pair of camel tailored trousers along with a white or off-white fine knit sweater. This tonal look exudes sophistication, even when paired with your favorite fuzzy slippers.
