We know that it doesn’t seem worth it to wear something that will need to be dry-cleaned if you are going to be working from home, but getting dressed to WFH is important. Besides, there are plenty of machine-washable ways to look cute for yourself and no one else. Whether you’re working from home on a temporary basis, or you have a job that’s always remote, it’s beneficial to get dressed in something other than your pajamas, even if you don’t plan to leave the house!
When you get dressed in stylish work from home outfit ideas, you’ll find that your mood is boosted, making it easier to concentrate on work. When we wear our PJ’s all day, we feel ready for bed on a subconscious level. Wearing a casual work from home outfit can help you feel more pulled together and ready to get down to business. From feel-good stretchy leggings to cozy knits, here are some of our favorite work from home outfit ideas to try. Finish a cozy WFH look with a slip-on shoe like a comfortable clog!
Cozy Knit Dress and Matching Boots
Now that we are heading into cooler temps, it’s time to swap out floaty summer dresses for cozy knit versions. A long-sleeved knit dress is super easy to put on in the morning and looks elegant as you lounge around the house. To complete this fall work outfit, throw on a pair of tall boots like Cozy Top as you head outside to keep your feet warm.
Joggers and a Cropped Hoodie
If you’re longing for a day in sweats, look for silhouettes that are less slouchy and more structured, like joggers and a cropped hoodie. A cute matching set will keep you from feeling like you’ve been sitting on the couch all day. If you have to run out to the store, throw on an athletic pair of black or white Moc Star sneakers.
Maxi Skirt and a Silky Button-Down
Dress to impress (yourself) in the luxurious combo of a maxi skirt and silky button-down. While a silky button-down can also be worn as a PJ top, this outfit takes the blouse style to new lengths with a floor-skimming skirt. Some slip on shoes for women like Woolderness 2 will keep your toes cozy while you work
Slip Dress and a Long Cardigan
While it is a bedtime staple, a slip dress can also be worn while you work from home with the addition of a long cardigan. While you might get cold in just the slip, a cozy cardi will bundle you up and bring a professional touch to all of your fall work outfits, including this one. Women’s slip on shoes like Wool Do are the perfect indoor-outdoor slippers to wear with this lounge look.
Tips to Remember
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter so much what you wear as how you feel wearing it. If a certain color boosts your mood, go for it! If you prefer more office-approved styles like a blazer and loafers for women, that’s fine, too. Just remember to change into your work outfits before logging into your computer and change out of them once you’re done. By setting boundaries with casual work outfits, you’ll keep a much healthier balance between work and play, rather than having it all blend together.
