What to Wear When You Work From Home

what to wear when you work from home


Saturday evening will mark the end of the first week of our governor’s stay at home order. As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I’ve worked from home for the last 15 years. You would think I’d be used to being homebound, but it’s been a hard week. And to dampen the mood, literally, the weather forecast is rain through Sunday. We still have a ton of projects to complete inside the house that will keep us busy, but getting out for a daily walk is the one thing that clears my head and keeps me sane. 


Anyway, back to working from home. One of the questions I get again and again is what to wear when you work from home. It’s easy to fall into a pajama/sweat pants type of uniform. One of my tips in Tuesday’s post is to make sure you get dressed every day. It’s something that I’ve always done, and studies show that getting ready not only boosts your mood and self-confidence, but it also helps you be more productive too. You don’t have to stick to the office dress code but find a happy balance between professional and comfortable. You’ll feel more confident, and that will come across in your IMs, emails, and in your voice on conference calls. My work from home formula is business on top and comfy on the bottom. 


So, today I wanted to share a week’s worth of work from home outfits to give you some ideas of what to wear when you work from homet5y6! I always add a few layered necklaces and a fun pair of earrings, so I’m put together for any video conferences. And, on my feet, you’ll usually find slippers, sneakers, or mules.
