Outfit Tips for Working From Home

Outfit Tips for Working From Home

Are you working from home at the moment? Thankfully it's looking like the end may be in sight for many of us. While it may be nice to enjoy the freedom that comes with working from home; you don’t have to rush or struggle with other commuters, you don’t have to time your bathroom breaks or put up with annoying co-workers. However, it can be difficult to create a good work/life balance when you’re conducting video calls in your living room while trying to keep your kids or pets from interrupting. I know my husband has struggled with that at times. So even if you are currently working from home, you may want to consider continuing to dress for work. Why in the world would you do that? Well dressing for work creates a differentiation between your work and home life. So having a dedicated at-home wardrobe versus a work wardrobe can help you be more productive during your work hours because you are in your work mindset. Here are some ideas to help you be stay-at-home-chic! 

Invest in some stunning eyewear
Staring at a screen all day isn’t good for you, therefore a pair of high-quality glasses is essential. You can check out places like EyeBuyDirect for the latest styles. Not only is investing in a pair of glasses good for your eye health, but a good set of eyewear is the perfect way to inject a little style and a bit of your personality into your working wardrobe. From bright colorful frames to rectangle or oval designs, brow line, and even geometric styles, there’s something for every face and every style. After all, on many of those zoom meetings, the only thing your coworkers and clients are seeing is your face so glasses are the perfect way to interject your personality into your appearance. And don't forget to make sure you are protecting your eyes. Make sure your glasses help filter out blue light. Even if you don't need prescription frames, you can certainly have a pair of blue-light-filtering lenses.

A touch of athleisure 
Who says sporty clothes are just for the gym? We can't even go to the gym right now so you may as well wear some of those clothes for work if you have a more casual workplace. If done right, some simple gym attire can leave you feeling feeling professional and comfortable. Opt for some black leggings and a simple tunic or sweater. You can always add a blazer or cardigan for an extra professional feel.

Tees and cardigans
A pair of well-fitting jeans and a nice top is always a good thing. But if you want to add a touch of formality or get into your work mind-set, then throw over a nice cardigan or blazer over top. This extra layer looks more professional especially when you are in online meetings.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! 
Make sure you don't forget about the jewelry! Even a pair of studs and simple necklace or rings can help you feel polished and ready for the work day. And these are the touches that people notice and can see via video chat. So don't be shy about about adding a headband, statement necklace, or earrings for a touch of glamour and comfort. Accessories take minutes to put on, but can really go a long way to making you look and feel put together for work. 

I hope you find these tips helpful for the (fingers crossed!) last few weeks of quarantine!
