What to Wear

WORKING FROM HOME: 3 LAID-BACK LOOKS

Home working is the new normal; dress clever for those tricky couch-to-conference-call transitions with our easy outfit ideas.

Striking the balance between comfort and professionalism is the key to mastering your work-from-home wardrobe. You want to feel relaxed and unrestricted, but also be ready to jump on that last-minute Google hangouts session. It's all about finding the right mix of soft, slouchy styles and polished, meeting-appropriate looks.

While you might spend the first week exclusively in PJs, the novelty will wear off and you'll realise that you need to look put-together to feel productive. Maintaining motivation can be a challenge when working from home, so avoid your usual down-time dressing and invest in some work-only luxury loungewear to differentiate between the weekends and week-days. In need of some inspiration? Keep scrolling to see our 3 go-to outfit formulas, perfect for home working.

Dress to impress

Dress to impress

When you have virtual meeting after virtual meeting on your agenda, it's important to look the part. Let's be honest – no co-worker wants to see your years' old pyjama top or fleece dressing gown. A loose-fitting dress is a fool-proof option for these days. Choose styles that are free from restricting waistbands, and that you're happy to sit all day in. A-line or shirt-style dresses are polished, professional, and comfortable to wear. In between calls, wear yours with a cardigan for that extra cosiness factor.

Leisure look

Leisure look

On those days when your diary is free from video meetings, take the opportunity to get comfortable. But resist the temptation to sit in your PJs all day; you'll feel a whole lot more productive if you get dressed. We're not suggesting you put on your finest frock and paint on a full face of makeup. Instead, opt for 'elevated pyjamas', aka loungewear. Cashmere knits and elasticated trousers will look that bit more put-together, but are still safely in the cosy zone.

Work it out

Work it out

Give new meaning to the term 'flexible working' and squeeze a yoga session into your lunch hour. If you're longing for fresh air (and much-needed outfit change), step into your favourite workout gear and go for a jog. The screen break will do you the world of good, and you'll feel so much more motivated when return to your desk. We're loving Lilybod and Hey Honey's matching co-ords, with a super-soft hoodie layered over on those cooler evenings.
