When going to work is as simple as rolling out of bed and walking across the hall to your home office, it’s hard to feel motivated to get dressed. Your pajamas or workout clothes can quickly become your everyday business uniform.
Trying to get dressed for work is more important than you may think. Putting together a work outfit, even casual, creates a professional mindset that results in a more productive day. Here’s how to dress casually, be comfy, and do the job while working from home.
1. Try a Long Top with Leggings
Nothing feels comfier when sitting for hours at a computer than stretchy, soft leggings. But they can easily make you look and feel frumpy too. The trick is to wear them with something other than your basic workout tee.
Try a cheery, trendy top like this sporty, yellow-striped pullover. This top is soft to wear with a laid-back feel, but the chic funnel neck and on-trend drawstring hem give it loads of style. Black leggings are the old standby, but white ones also look great in warmer weather.
2. Slip on Stretchy Jeans and a Tunic
If you love to wear jeans, here’s a cute look. Add a flowy tunic to your favorite stretch jeans for a chic black-and-white look. This playful, zip-front top with friendly polka dots will make you look casual and confident as you adjust to your new normal.
3. Stay Relaxed in an Oversized Shirt
You’re at your desk, on the phone, in the kitchen making everyone lunch, and on the couch with your laptop watching Trump on TV. You don’t want anything tight or hot when you move around so much. A relaxed cotton shirt is an excellent way to go. I love the sunset colors on this boxy, cool shirt worn with your favorite jeans.
4. Get Comfy in Cotton Dress
Pants and leggings are a no-brainer, but there will be days when you feel like wearing a dress- but not any old one. This vibrant striped cotton knit dress with the bateau neck and 3/4 length sleeves is ideal. And when you are ready to step out the front door for some fresh air, slip on these backless sneakers and take a break.
5. Log on in Flowy Pants and a Cute T-shirt
Like this cute blue pair, wide, flowy pants are another great option. These are linen, so they will keep you cool, plus the elastic waistband gives you lots of breathing room.
