These are cute yet comfortable pieces that transition easily to a semi-corporate look if you need to get on a Zoom call or run out to the grocery store or just to open your door to grab your deliveries. I used to be all about the pajama life. In fact, I might be typing this in a stained t-shirt from one of my old boyfriends. Old habits die hard.
But it’s time to uplevel to some very comfortable pieces that will have you looking smart but still feeling comfortable. These are the pieces you wear at home all day long.
Work From Home Wardrobe Staples
So welcome to my bedroom….er…I mean my corner office. This is my little slice of work from home space that I’ve carved out for myself and I must say for a modest space it’s pretty comfortable. My vision board is up there on the wall, though it’s empty right now. My whiteboard calendar is above my mini bookshelf that also holds my printer. In my drawers are various files, tech, and makeup. This doubles as my vanity at night, hence the mirror and cup with makeup brushes that are just out of view in this photo.
Anyway, let’s talk about this dress. It’s cute, very comfortable and certainly doesn’t look like I just rolled out of bed. It’s something I can wear around the house all day and feel cute and casual in. It has pockets (YESSS!!!) and it’s very affordable. If I want to run out to the grocery store, I don’t feel the need to change. I’ll just slip out of these furry house slippers, of course. You can grab this dress here in a million colours including some very cute patterns.
Now in my industry, I rarely need to look much more corporate than just my spaghetti strap dress but if you do, just reach into the closet for a jacket or cardigan to take your simple summer dress to the next level. I bought this jacket in black and blue over 5 years ago and they’re still my favorite go-to pieces to style a simple look. It’s a peplum jacket that’s fitted and perfect for hot girl corporate or date night. Here’s a date night look I slayed in it recently.
Here’s another dress that has sleeves. It’s soft like a t-shirt dress but very stylish, elevating your look at home. This means no jacket or cardigan is necessary if you’re pulled into a video call with your boss or a client. It is also available in a few other colours. If you’re like me, you have these types of dresses in lots of different colours because they just work. The best thing to pull on with some cute earrings, a long necklace and be out the door if you need to be or be cute in your house without feeling frumpy. Get this dress here.
Perhaps you’re not as big of a dress fan as I am. Here’s a top that goes a little beyond your standard white tee.
I love the peekaboo back that makes me feel like a rebel on these zoom calls. It also doubles as a gym or yoga top. It’s comfortable to wear around the house and you can simply pop on some jeans if you need to run out for any reason. It’s available in a bunch of colours here.
Loungewear is of course a great option for your work from home capsule wardrobe. I love this one because it’s a little elevated from your usual sweatpants getup. The crop top and palazzo pants give you a little pizzazz.
If it’s cold where you are then here’s a 3-piece option that’s cute and comfortable. It takes your hoodie up a notch so you can keep that air of professionalism about you while you tap away at your computer.
If you’re a fan of print and maxi dresses then make a statement honey in this summer-ready number. You can always through a cardigan over it if needs be but I love the freeness of these dresses and often wear them around the house when it’s hot out. I’m also ready to run a quick errand or go pick up my daughter from school.
Here’s another style of top I love. These chiffon blouses look pretty and professional to help you stay productive and chirpy while working from home. They also give you the ease of popping on some slacks or jeans if you need to head out. Get one in various patterns here.
Ok, things were getting too pretty and professional. I’m dialing it back to some cute graphic tees if your work from home lifestyle will allow for it. This tee from a fun Marvel collection is perfect for superhero fans to lounge…I mean work from home in.
Here’s another fun tee that may be the highlight of your video call. Will it be all truth or pure irony when it comes to you? It’s available in a few fun colours.
Speaking of fun tees to own the video call on. This social distancing tee is perfect for the influencer who’s got an IG live coming up.
Of course you’ll need yoga pants to post your home workouts in. They work well under your pro-looking blouses too if you need to jump on a call or open your door for deliveries. I have these and they are perfect for my morning jogs. I pop my phone in, face out so it doesn’t get too sweaty and listen to my favorite podcasts as I run. This has been the best way to start my day lately. Here’s a link to solid colour ones if you prefer.
Don’t sleep on these classic joggers. I have these in a few colours because they’re so comfortable to run errands in! I don’t typically wear them at home because I live in the furnace that is Jamaica but I reach for these on cold nights for sure.
