The Work from Home culture is here and is going to stay. Gone are the days of hurriedly dressing up
before rushing for a long commute (at least till the pandemic is over). But, with the increasing
arguments of the benefits of working from home, companies are now starting to consider a hybrid work
model once normalcy resumes.
So, does this mean the end of dressing up? Of course not! You can still spice up your closet with our
work-from-home suggestions. This list consists of outfits that prize comfort and professionalism while
leaving enough room to add your own style to the mix.
Why dress up?
While dressing up can feel a bit like a chore for those who simply like to wake up, grab a cup of tea/
coffee and start working from their laptops, it does have some benefits.
Firstly, it helps divide work time with fun time. Just like our mind associates certain areas of the house
for relaxing activities and certain areas for work-related ones, similarly, it associates pajamas for
sleeping and your business attire for work.
Dressing smart also works as a great confidence boost.
If you’re already dressed well, you don’t have to worry about that last-minute scramble to look presentable
when asked to join/ switch on your camera for a work meeting.
Give the existing stuff in your closet a chance to live outside it. With time, clothes grow old regardless
of whether you wear them or not. Don’t let them go to waste.
Work from Home Ideas:
1. A matching pantsuit
Nothing screams ‘efficiency’ more than the crisp set of a matching pantsuit. Pick a color palette
design that suits your style to completely rock all your virtual conferences!
2. Blazers and Track Pants
While not as formal as a pantsuit, this style blends the professional look with casual comfort. A
well-fitting blazer can add a business look to your outfit even when worn over a plain T-shirt (in
complementing colors). Track pants are a wonderful motivation on mornings you just want to finish
work. Don’t forget to adjust the camera to get only the blazer in focus to give the impression of
wearing smart attire.
3. Fancy Top and Jeans
The perfect outfit for Fun Fridays! Give that fancy top you’ve probably worn only once before a new
in your WFH collection. Jeans look good with just about any top. Since you’re going to be working
long hours (especially if you use a standing table), make sure that they’re loose enough and
4. Biker Shorts + Crop Top
Pair a crop top with a pair of biker shorts and you’ve got yourself a breezy outfit. Add a long
coat to the mix for a chill vibe.
A fun fashion staple, a jumpsuit can be thrown over any undershirt to turn plain into fancy. Add
matching jewelry to spice up your look.
6. Collard Shirt
The easiest way to go for a professional look, a buttoned-up collared shirt. You can pair it with
7. Crew-Neck T-Shirt
Looking for a more laid-back vibe when working from home? Pick a comfy crew-neck T-shirt. The looser
the sleeves, the more laidback it feels.
8. Turtleneck and Sweater Pair
If your indoors are incredibly cool, a turtleneck and sweater pair makes for a cozy look. Stick to
office color tones, such as blacks, browns, and creams.
9. Tan Pant
Tan Pants are brilliant in jazzing up an outfit while maintaining a sharp look. Add a cute black or
gold belt and tuck in your shirt for the perfect attire.
10. Flowy Pants
While flowy pants went out of fashion a long time ago, they’re slowly and steadily making a
comeback. They look more polished than track pants but at the same time are just as comfy.
11. Wide Jeans
Wide jeans are comfortable and look great in just about any ensemble - are there any more reasons
you need to love them?
12. Cargo Pants
We say ‘go for it!’ when it comes to cargo pants. Everyone needs a pair, especially while working
during the summers.
13. Silk Scrunchies
While working from home, you’re going to want to have your hair tied up at some point in the day.
While you can use any kind of rubber band for it, silk tends to cause less hair damage as the smooth
material keeps your hair from being pulled and breaking.
14. Butterfly Claw Clip
Just like with a scrunchy, a butterfly claw clip can also be used to keep the hair out of your face.
Tie your hair in a messy bun with a shiny clip to add some glam to your work-from-home outfit.
