Casual Work From Home Outfits 

As someone who has been working remotely for the past three years, I understand the importance of feeling both comfortable and put together. So I built these outfits to do just that. 

Tank Dress + Cashmere Cardigan

Dress | Cardigan | Shoes  

A soft tank dress is an ideal wfh staple since it’s equal parts flattering and comfortable. Bonus points for this one since it has pockets. Layer with a cozy cardigan rather than that blanket on your couch.

Mock Neck Sweater + Wide Leg Pants

The mock neck offers a professional touch, while the wide-leg pants bring comfort to the forefront. To make your work from home clothing feel more cohesive, opt for matching colors.

Shell Tank+ Cropped Pants + Wool Cardigan

Tank Top | Cardigan | Pants | Slippers

I love the versatility of a shell tank, especially a neutral-colored one. Why ponte pants? The fabric is way more flexible than denim. So opt for these if you want a polished bottom that doesn’t restrict you.

Perfect when you want your work from home clothes to exude polish while being oh-so comfortable. 

Silky Button Down + Kick Flare Pants

How Can I Look Stylish Working From Home?

Here’s how you can effortlessly infuse style into your remote work attire:

Blend Pieces: To elevate looks, combine low-key pieces with chic ones.

For instance, pair your favorite cozy sweater with tailored pants or leggings with a knit blazer for a relaxed yet polished look.

Wear Jewelry: We stack on accessories when going out. But let’s not forget we can adorn our work from home outfits as well.

I love adding a delicate necklace or pair of drop earrings to feel instantly polished. Naked ears on a video call? No thanks. 

Add Patterns: Neutrals are not the only option. Read that again. Experiment with prints and patterns to add interest and give your colleagues something to compliment on your video call.

A floral blouse, striped sweater, and even a printed accessory can transform an otherwise ordinary outfit. 

Build Up Basics: How to avoid the lots of clothing, nothing to wear problem- build a collection of versatile basics that mix and match.

Think essentials like a blazer, a day dress, and a few pairs of comfy trousers. This work from home capsule wardrobe showcases the essentials.

Coordinate Clothing: Good news, sweats are not banned. Well, the stained and ripped ones are. But if you enjoy loungewear, opt for coordinated sets or stylish athleisure outfits.

Remote Work Wardrobe FAQs

What should I wear to my work from home office?

Casual chic is the way to go – think stylish joggers or comfortable jeans paired with a neat blouse or a polished shirt.

– Keep Zoom-ready tops on standby

– Add layers like a cozy cardigan or a stylish blazer

– Opt for breathable fabrics like cotton or knits and go for relaxed fits that move with you 

– Lastly, don’t forget simple jewelry like necklaces and earrings to polish off casual looks

The goal is to feel both cozy and ready to tackle your workday. 

Should I get dressed to work from home?

Yes! For the sake of productivity, it’s important to don a presentable work from home outfit. You may find yourself among the remote workers who report increased productivity after intentionally dressing.

Choose pieces that are both comfy and stylish. Clothing like wide-leg trousers, breezy shirt dresses, and boat neck tops all are casual chic staples that strike the balance.

Dressing up, even when you don’t leave the house, sets a positive tone for your workday. So save the stretched-out hoodie for after-hours lounging.
