Working from home? No idea whether you should mass order more joggers or get dressed to put yourself in the ultimate productivity mode (or try to)? We asked our editor to pull together the best WFH wardrobe.
When working from home, you need to decide what makes you feel more productive; that could be 9-5 loungewear or maybe you work better when pulling on a pair of jeans for the day ahead. Whichever suits you most, our editor has pulled together a capsule wardrobe that’ll dress your at-home working week.
You’re either a Monday person or you’re not. Either way, the best way to start the week, in my opinion, is by getting up, getting dressed and cracking on with your work.
What to wear: I’d wear a pair of comfy jeans (our stretch skinny or relaxed styles are perfect), and a loose fit shirt for room to move around. And a strong coffee – but don’t wear that.
Lots of people say Tuesday is the worst day of the week. If you’re one of them, that’s even more reason to get dressed in the morning.
What to wear: Pull on a pair of smarter joggers which are more relaxed than jeans but smarter than a pair of casual bottoms. Match them with a knitted polo (long or short sleeve) and you’re good to go.
It’s hump day! As easy as it is, try not to let your fatigue bring you down. Today is a good day to get a workout done to boost your energy. Here are some ab exercises you can do in between Zoom calls.
What to wear: Since you’re halfway through the week (congrats), spend the day in your comfiest joggers and sweats (as long as you can still get work done!).
The week is so nearly over; who doesn’t love a Thursday? Often one of the quietest days of the working week, allow yourself a few breaks and try to get some fresh air.
What to wear: Spend this day in another pair of comfy joggers and an oversized tee. To avoid feeling slobbish, go for clean, fresh-out-the-wash loungewear.
It’s Friday! Does anyone else think a week working from home feels 10 times longer than a week in the office? Friday is your perfect excuse to dress up nice and bang out the last bit of work before the weekend. Come 5pm (or whenever your Friday finishes), pour yourself a drink and get on House Party to celebrate with your friends.
What to wear: Wear a pair of chinos and a fun printed shirt to get all the Friday-feels. Why not whack out a touch of animal print, just ‘cos?
