Women’s WFH Style Staples You’ll Use Long After Lockdown
The advent of work from home setups over the past few months has required a significant sartorial adjustment, with sweatpants becoming the new ‘office’ norm. However, after having spent a couple of (very comfortable) months sporting baggy trackies and t-shirts, we’ve noticed that our outfits actually do have an impact on our productivity (plus, we kind of miss dressing up). While tie-dye sweats and hoodies have their place, we’re looking towards a slightly less agoraphobic future; one that includes actually venturing out of the house, socialising, and indulging in some non-essential services every now and then. Our favourite WFH outfits reflect that, blurring the line between style and comfort. Without further ado, here are our WFH style staples that are relaxed enough to work from the couch in, yet have the sartorial cred to handle a zoom call.
Subtle yet feminine, this ribbed knit dress is sure to be a wardrobe staple. Lightweight yet warm, it toes the like between comfort and sophistication, making it the ideal dress to work from home or the office in.
Borrow from the boys; a simple, well-cut white t-shirt makes for the ideal WFH piece. A flattering silhouette for men and women, this Basic Rights Camp Collar Shirt derives its inspiration from 50s style and is crafted from 100% sustainably sourced tencel. Effortlessly elegant and always comfortable, style with jeans or trousers in the office, and with whatever your heart desires for those waist-up zoom calls.
Mixing it up every now and then with non-elasticised pants can be fun. High-waisted and fitted at the top, these straight-legged jeans from Nudie Jeans are the perfect piece to wear for a little at-home motivation.
If there’s one thing that quarantine has taught us, it’s that we’re so not ready to go back to underwire bras anytime soon. Fortunately, Intimo’s smooth plunge bra marries form and function, providing support while being comfortable enough to wear around the house. Grab the matching boyleg brief too and make it a set.
Slim-fitting with a crew neck, this ribbed knit midi dress is the perfect transeasonal dress; pairing well with a coat for winter outings, as well as on its own come springtime. Plus, it makes for the perfect put-together zoom chat attire.
This knit short and jumper set is the perfect antidote to leggings and trackies. Plus, post-quarantine, you can mix and match the pieces; swap your miniskirt out for a pair of cute knit shorts and team with a simple tee and some pumps, or pair the jumper with high-waisted denim.
