One of the many perks of working from home is that you don’t have to wear formal business attire. But just because you have a casual dress code doesn’t mean that you should lounge around in your pajamas all day. In fact, research has shown that how you dress when you work affects not only your mindset but also your productivity and mood.
The key when purchasing clothing for your work at home wardrobe is to keep things simple, yet versatile. That way your wardrobe can function both for your relaxed home office days, and your more formal days when you meet with clients or colleagues.
Here are 6 wardrobe essentials that every work-at-home woman should have in her closet.
1. Dark Jeans
Dark jeans are perfect for dressing up, yet causal enough to be worn daily. When you purchase denim, try to purchase the darkest wash possible. Not only do darker washes look slimming and more refined, but they also last longer than lighter shades and they look good with every shoe color.
2. White Blouse
Who said white blouses have to be boring? Choose a white blouse with a simple pattern or a unique cut. Not only do they go with everything from jeans to skirts, but you can wear them all year around.
While I love the look of jackets and blazers they tend to be too formal and constrictive for everyday wear. Instead, try a cardigan on for size. Not only is layering functional and stylish, but it’s also flattering and easily extends your wardrobe. Plus, cardigans can be worn with anything and everything.
4. Cropped Pants
More polished than shorts and great for all occasions. Cropped pants can be dressed down with a scoop neck tee and sandals or dressed up with some wedges, a breezy blouse, and cardigan.
5. Flirty Skirt
Skirts are great for when you want to look dressier but don’t want the formality of a dress. When choosing skirts look for A-line cuts that come right above the knee — this cut tends to look good on all body types and can be easily dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a PTA meeting.
Accessories not only complement your outfit, but they add a whole new layer of dimension and make you look more polished. A few accessories that every work at home woman should have in her closet are ballet flats, black heels, a printed scarf, a great handbag, some statement jewelry, and belts.
