5 key pieces for working from home during quarantine

Depending on where you are in the world, you’ve most likely been social distancing at home for at least two to three months. Some have adjusted well while others are still struggling to get into a groove. Carrying out important tasks at home requires some level of discipline and for those of us who have the privilege to continue our work from home, it’s been difficult adjusting.

Part of successfully navigating this temporary, new world is finding ways to weave elements from your previous normal to the current one. Because picking out and putting on an outfit in the morning isn’t necessarily a priority during this time, it’s easy to get caught up in wearing clothes for comfort rather than style. But there’s good news! Comfort AND style go together as well as a t-shirt and jeans. It’s a classic combination. In fact, both elements are great for productivity as looking and feeling good helps inspire a positive mindset. Here are our top 5 pieces to help you achieve this combination while working from home:

#5: Oversized Shirt

For those who have to dress up a bit for those video conferences with clients and colleagues, a classic white shirt does the trick in keeping it professional while the oversized detail keeps it chic and comfortable.

#4: Statement Jewelry

A statement earring or necklace takes the simplest outfit to a new level! It’s low lift, requiring very little effort to put on. This makes it the perfect accessory to throw on as you roll out of your bed at 8:55 AM to your couch for a 9 AM meeting.

#3: Loose Drawstring Pants

The ultimate lounge work-from-home piece. Loose drawstring pants provide movement and comfortability which is required for a heavy meeting morning that could have been easily done over email 🤦🏾‍♀️. It also limits accidental no-bottom moments on Zoom when you meant to only show the waist up.

#2: Cute Headband or scarf

Similar to statement jewelry, a good headband is a simple way to spruce up an otherwise plain look. It also doubles as a way to disguise a bad hair day. We love a good multi-tasker!

#1: Dresses, Dresses, Dresses

Whether you go for bright and bold or neutral and demure, your look is 90% complete with this ONE piece. Choose dresses that are loose fitting with natural fabrics. They provide the most comfort when sitting stationary most of the day. Again, “low-lift” looks are key during this time - our brain power is needed for other matters.
