If anyone thought that fashion would stop while the whole world was put on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic, they were mistaken! A quick Instagram check shows everyone getting dressed as per usual, though style has definitely changed over the last few months. Without a reason to wear more formal clothes, comfortable loungewear outfits are taking over.
While working from home doesn’t require the same attire as office wear, it’s still a good idea to get dressed daily. For one thing, it boosts productivity. For another, it means you won’t look like a sloth for your daily Zoom meetings. Below, discover some fashion favorites of women working from home. We have a feeling some of these outfits are here to stay as we navigate the new normal.
Tie Dye Slip Dress
Slip dresses are a WFH staple that look glam, but feel so loose and free. Tie dye is having a moment, so we’re snapping up the bold print in everything from sweatsuits to slip dresses. If you get cold easily, a chunky knit cardi over the slip dress will keep you bundled. Style with heeled slides when you head out of the house.
Cami and Linen Paperbag Pants
Linen is the perfect fabric for working from home this summer because it’s effortlessly comfortable and lightweight, yet looks semi-professional. A pair of drawstring linen paperbag pants with a soft cami tucked in will make you feel pulled together, whether you’re working on the couch or running to the store.
Oversized Button-Down Shirt and Tall Socks
An oversized button-down can be worn as a dress while you WFH. The more oversized, the better for total comfort. The best part? A shirt dress looks great on Zoom calls, plus you don’t have to wear pants! To finish the at-home look, throw on some tall white socks to keep your feet warm.
An easy way to be comfortable and not constricted while still looking like you made an effort is to wear a matching sweatsuit. Throwing on a beautiful, soft pair of neutral joggers along with a matching sweatshirt is a dreamy way to ease into the workday.
Black Bike Shorts, Crop Top and Slippers
Stretchy black bike shorts and a crop top are WFH staples that you can style in different ways when you need to go outside. When you get chilly, you can always throw on a sweatshirt. Some fuzzy slippers will keep your feet warm and make you feel relaxed as you WFH in style.
Mom Jeans and a Striped Shirt
Some women might be against the idea of wearing jeans while at home, but we think it all comes down to the fit. If you get the right fit of high-waisted mom jeans, they should be loose enough around the waist and legs that they are comfy no matter how or where you are sitting. Add a striped Breton shirt in soft cotton and you’ll feel extra stylish.
For the days when putting together two items of clothing from your closet seems like an unnecessary chore (hello, Mondays), reach for a jumpsuit instead. A loose-fitting jumpsuit in your favorite color will instantly brighten your day while you hang out at home.
Even when it’s cold outside, you can still get use out of your flowy maxi dresses. Wear them around the house with a pair of wooly socks so your feet don’t get cold. Whether you’re reading on the couch or taking an impromptu dance break in the kitchen, you’ll feel far more pulled together in a maxi dress than in your PJ’s.
Black Leggings and a Long Cardigan
There are two staples every woman needs in her WFH wardrobe: black leggings and an oversized cardigan. Put them together and you’re geared up for any task on your To-do list. Leggings are the ultimate in comfort with plenty of stretch and whether you’re wearing a silky cami or a t-shirt, you can wrap yourself up in the knitted long cardigan.
Oversized Checked Pants and a Black Sweater
If you want a look that can just as easily be worn inside as outside, swap your sweatpants for a pair of oversized checked pants and a form-fitting black sweater. While this is on the dressier side of the stay at home scale, it is still comfortable and we’re certain it will motivate you to get some work done because this look means business.
These outfits are super cute and comfy while you work from home, plus they can also be worn in public. Just don’t forget the most important accessory when you decide to leave the house — a mask!
