I have several different jobs, most of which don’t require me to leave the house. This means that my ‘work wardrobe’ is slightly different to most people. I need to wear something comfortable that I can move around in (I live in a one bedroom flat with my partner, who also works from home so most of the time my desk is the couch or the floor) but is also professional enough so that I can pop out for a quick meeting or a working lunch. Here’s what I wear on a typical day working from home.

What To Wear When You Work From Home
Resist Track Pants
It’s super tempting to wear PJs or daggy sweat pants but that’s a mistake. You need to dress a little bit professionally because it resets your brain. You sleep in your pajamas and you do exercise in yoga pants, therefore they aren’t appropriate for work. Even if your workplace is in your home.
Wear Something Comfortable
There’s no need to wear a suit and 6 inch heels if you work from home unless you particularly want to. You can afford to wear something a little more casual than you would wear to an office. For instance if I worked in an office, I probably wouldn’t wear this dress without tights and I certainly wouldn’t wear it without a cardigan over the top. However I work from home so I can get away with showing a little more leg. You want to wear something professional, casual and versatile so you can quickly meet a client or pop to a lunch time event without feeling too under dressed, but you also want to wear something comfortable that you can wear all day without feeling like you want to rip all your clothes off.
I’m a huge fan of slip on shoes because I don’t wear shoes in my home but I’m constantly running out for meetings and errands. I wear lots of ballet flats and TOMS and they’re perfect for popping on quickly so I can run around for twenty minutes and then come home and kick them off again.
