With more and more people working from home, it leaves a lof of first time work from home-ers, what do you wear? Let’s take a look at what goes into a work from home outfits!
Lucky for you, there is no right or wrong thing to wear when you work from home. But, one thing that is a must, actually getting dressed. It can be comfier, and more casual than what you usually would wear to the office, but it is important to get dressed.
For one thing, if you’re on a Zoom meeting, you want to at least look professional from the waist up. Just because you’re working from home, doesn’t mean that you want to show up to your meeting in your pjs. Often, I am rocking leggings or joggers. But, I have my hair done and a cute top on.
Depending on if I have Zoom meeting, and if so, who with, I will either wear a business casual top, sweater, to look professionally casual. Or if it’s a if I don’t need to dress up, I’ve been loving oversized, comfy band tees.
Getting dressed signals your brain that it’s time to go to work. I know I get a lot more accomplished throughout the day when I dress the part.
But, that doesn’t mean you have to go full corporate mode. You can definitely be more comfortable than you would at the office. I wear casual jeans, leggings or dresses when I’m working from home.
Getting dressed can also help your mental health. Sometimes, when you are feeling particularly down, getting up, and dressed, and ready for the day can help bring you out of a funk. I know when I put on a cute outfit, and I’m happy with myself in the mirror, it brightens my whole day.
With all the uncertainty going on in the world right now, it can bring on feelings of anxiety, stress, and even fear. While putting together an outfit, obviously doesn’t change any of those things, but it can put us in a better state of mind to tackle the day.
I’m also a huge fan of working from home in slippers! Keep your toes warm and cozy. There is something about putting on slippers that makes my soul happy.
