In response to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, we realize that many people are struggling with what to wear and why they should change into anything but their sweatpants when working from home.
As many of us have transitioned to working from our home environments, becoming our own boss and keeping ourselves on track involves ensuring that we are creating rituals that allow us to do so. Don’t worry, you can indulge yourself in a pair of comfortable track pants at the end of the day but we recommend that during your 9-5 work hours, even if it’s at home, that you put the same effort into yourself and get dressed as you normally would. This can look a couple of different ways, but the most important thing is that you wear what feels professional for you. If you’re used to wearing a suit on a daily basis, try wearing a sweater blazer. If a silk collared shirt puts you in the work mood, transition to a cotton fabric that will be more comfortable for you to write your emails from the couch in.
The important thing is to put effort into yourself and not forget the routines that drive you to be successful in your work. To help you do this, we have put together some inspiration for outfits you can recreate with what you have in your closet as well as some new pieces you can order online that will inspire you to wear more than just sweatpants while working from home.
