Apologies if you’re seasoned in working from home, but for many of us, the next few weeks and months will probably be about creating a good routine. To me, a big part of this will be finding outfits that do two things: firstly, make us feel comfortable, and secondly, make us feel good. I know that some will roll their eyes at the idea of putting any thought into an outfit that will only be seen by your flatmates and/or the cashier at the corner shop. But in my experience, a good outfit really can have the power to shift our mood.
I’m not going to suggest everyone should swan around their living rooms in tulle gowns and heels (although if that’s what keeps you going, then more power to you), but maybe it’s something as small as throwing on a brightly coloured jumper or slipping on a deliciously soft pair of cashmere joggers. It’s these little pick-me-ups that can make all the difference in the long run.
Essentially, you gotta do what you gotta do. But if you happen to crave a bit of inspiration in the working-from-home wardrobe department, I’ve created a list of the pieces I’ll be wearing over the coming weeks and months. I’m all about the luxe basics that will feel as comfy as pyjamas but will still help me transition into my work zone. And as buying new isn’t realistic to many of us right now, many of these items are basics that you might already find within your wardrobe.
