Over the last couple of years, more people have become accustomed to working from home. While some only worked from home during the early months of the pandemic, many companies have decided to keep their employees working remotely. If you just so happen to be working for a company that has you permanently stationed at home, you may be feeling the urge to update your wardrobe with comfy yet presentable work-from-home outfits.
If you are looking for outfits that will help you feel more productive and look more presentable without sacrificing your comfort, check out some of these great work-from-home outfits that are perfect for the winter season.
You know what everyone loves wearing in the winter? Sweaters. Keeping warm and cozy is one of the top priorities during the winter season and working from home during the winter is no exception. If your sweater collection is in need of an update, invest in high-quality knitwear that is presentable yet comfortable enough to wear all day long while you are at home. Knitwear is an excellent investment because you will be able to wear it anywhere else, too, whether it’s to head into the office for something, run to the grocery store, or meet friends for dinner. Knitwear items like cardigan button-ups, sweater vests, and cashmere turtlenecks are all great choices for working from home.
When it comes to working from home, comfort is arguably more important than presentation. However, most people working from home will also have to jump on the occasional zoom call to meet with colleagues or clients, in which case you’ll likely need to be somewhat presentable. Find that happy medium with a chic, loose-fitting button-up women’s blouse. Invest in a high-quality material that is durable but also incredibly comfortable. A button-up blouse is the kind of thing you would likely wear in an office setting, but it’s also comfortable enough to work from home in.
Anyone who has spent any amount of time working from home over the last few years understands just how vitally important comfy pants are. Who wants to work from home for eight hours a day while wearing tight-fitting skinny jeans? While that pant style might be great for a night out, we’re just going to say it: sitting around the house in jeans or stiff work pants is not most people’s preference. Fortunately, there are many other pant styles that are far more comfortable, but still stylish and polished. Slouchy pants, wide-leg trousers, and linen pants are all perfect for working from home. You can create fabulous outfits with loose-fitting or wide-legged pants and you can enjoy greater freedom of movement. Pick pant styles that are made with breathable material and that offer a loose, more relaxed fit.
Ok, we know we said earlier that jeans aren’t usually a person’s first choice when it comes to work-from-home attire. However, there are a few jean styles that are quite comfortable to work in and some jean brands construct their jeans with unbelievably comfy denim. The key is to find jean styles that are looser and more relaxed. Mom jeans are great because they are loose and unrestrictive, unlike skinny jeans. Wide-leg jeans, straight-leg jeans, and flared bottom jeans are all great choices too. If you have a day where you are working from home for a few hours but are spending the rest of the afternoon out in public, loose-fit jeans may be the right choice for you. This way, you are all dressed for the day, and you won’t have to waste time changing outfits midday.
You can’t leave your feet bare during the dead of winter! Nothing is more distracting than trying to focus on a work project with a deadline while your feet are freezing. While you won’t be walking around the house in brown leather loafers or 4-inch heels, you may want some kind of footwear to keep your feet warm. Start with a good pair of thick socks; since you are working from home, that may be all you need. However, if you are a fan of slippers, choose a slipper style that coordinates well with the rest of your outfit. This could be a pair of fuzzy slide-on slippers, suede moccasins lined with shearling fur, or slipper boots. If you prefer actual shoes, you might like a trendy pair of slide-on leather sandals.
