When it comes to working from home, it can be easy to get into a rut with your outfits. Pajamas and joggers, while seriously comfy, can start to lose their charm and make you feel uninspired. But thankfully, there are a few items you can buy to build your ultimate home-friendly capsule wardrobe—which will help you feel chic and productive but most importantly, comfy. So, here are our top picks of the best work-from-home clothes, to get you started...
From knitted trousers to stylish knits, comfort does not have to equal boring. There's a whole plethora of chic but cozy options out there which will get you feeling ready for the work grind, while also being practical for a day at home. Think 'coastal grandmother' vibes and you're on the right track—so start packing your fave PJs away, because they're now on a strict night-time-only curfew.
Whether you're new to the WFH game or are fed up with your clothing rotation— here are some great options to invest in...
Best working from home clothes
The key to WFH attire is—of course—comfort first. But how it makes you feel is also important—as you want to feel productive and ready for the day and not like you've just slumped out of bed. If, for example, your fave threadbare joggers make you feel a bit frumpy, try swapping them for a more flattering pair of yoga pants, or knitted wide-leg trousers—they ensure the same level of comfort but are slightly more elevated.
Then you just pair those knitted trousers with a button-up or a cute cable knit jumper and you've got the perfect fall-fit that you can work all day in—and even nip to the shops in. Speaking from personal experience here, just don't ever risk going out in your PJs—you WILL see someone you know...
