Working from home become your new norm?
We get it; the idea of staying in your PJs all day can be tempting. But just because you’re working in the bedroom, doesn’t mean you should be dressed for bedtime. In fact, kicking about in your comfies can have a huge negative impact on both your mental health and productivity levels.
So, why not invest in some ‘work from home’ clothes?
We’re not talking about three-piece suits and killer heels. That’s going a tad too far. But it’s good to add a few staple pieces to your wardrobe that will put you in the right mindset for work and ensure you both look and feel great. Our online men’s and women’s range is packed full of WFH (work from home) clothes that will do the job perfectly – and here we take a look at some of our absolute favourites.
Working from home outfits for the working man
If your usual weekday attire involves a designer suit jacket and tie, finding a suitable at-home version can be tricky. But the solution is to strike a balance between smart and casual.
Our advice is to invest in a shirt. Don’t panic; we’re not talking about the stiff-collared buttoned-up number that you usually wear to the office. But, instead, a long-sleeved design – perhaps in a pastel pink colourway or with a classic checked pattern.
This is the key to the perfect work from home outfit. Simply turn it into an ‘overshirt’ and layer it over a short-sleeved tee by Le Shark or Dissident. Then, to complete the look for zoom chats with the boss, we recommend rolling up the sleeves and adding a pair of joggers. Easy as that.
For days when it’s just you and a pile of paperwork, why not ditch the joggers in favour of a pair of lounge pants? There’s plenty to choose from in our men’s loungewear collection. All of which can be styled with a hoodie or sweatshirt and are exactly what you need to create a laid-back WFH look.
Working from home outfits for the professional woman
For ladies, our advice on work from home clothes is simple. The bigger the better.
Whatever you buy – whether it be a hoodie, a t-shirt, a chunky cable-knit cardigan – always go a size up. Not only will this make sure you stay super-comfy, the relaxed look is hugely on-trend at the moment. Wear it loose and team it with a pair of leggings or cycle shorts. And, when it’s time to video call your clients, tuck it in at the hip and complete the outfit with playful accessories.
In terms of brands, we reckon Amara Reya certainly hits the chic WFH criteria.
This is a collection that combines vintage fashion and everyday comfort – including everything from boho-inspired t-shirts to pretty floral-embroidered jumpers. As such, it’s the perfect option for your Monday-Thursday wardrobe. Then, for the last day of the week (when you’re winding down with a cheeky glass of vino water at your desk), swap these styles out for comfy loungewear classics.
