Style 911: “How Do I Create A Work-From-Home Look Without Dressing Like A Slob?”
I just got a new job, and it allows me to work from home. Great, right? But I’m worried that my style is going to devolve into sweatpants and mu-mus. Can you help me find some work-from-home appropriate pieces that will get me motivated? –Jenny
Since all of us Frisky ladies are in a similar work-from-home boat, I can sympathize with your plight. While some are more comfy and productive in sweats (hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it), others work way better dressing like they’re heading to an office for the day. Personally, I fall into the latter category. Everyday, I dress up — not in a suit or anything — but in something work appropriate, so that I can get in the work mindset. And also, in case there’s a fire in my building or some kind of emergency (like, say, someone spots Joseph Gordon-Levitt hanging out in the neighborhood) that forces me out of my apartment, I’m ready to go. My biggest work outfit productivity trick? I wear shoes in the house. Putting shoes on seems to really get me in the game. After the jump, a cute and comfortable option for you.
