16 Essentials of a WFH Wardrobe Expand options

Working from home can change your entire routine, including your WFH wardrobe. When you aren’t limited to a corporate closet, it’s hard to know what your options are.

Check out these 20 essentials of a work-from-home (WFH) wardrobe that will help you pick out your outfits without making you feel like you’re trying to work on vacation.

1. Your favorite jeans

On business-casual Fridays, you may have worn your favorite jeans to work. Now you can make them the base of your outfit.

2. Comfortable button-downs

Keep a few of your favorite button-downs ironed and on standby for special presentations.

3. Grooming routine

Putting on light makeup or brushing your hair could help you get in a mindset that’s ready for the workday

4. A casual hoodie

If you’re cold, a hoodie can help walk the fine line between work wear and lounge wear. 

5. Standard white t-shirt

A white t-shirt goes with any outfit, from high-waisted jeans to a skirt. You’ll feel comfortable and look great.

6. No pajama days

Avoid wearing your pajamas every day. When you don’t change clothes, you become less productive and focused because your brain believes you’re about to go to sleep. Only work in your pajamas if you feel sick or it’s an exception. 

7. Friday sweatpants

Whether you prefer joggers or sweatpants, they’re a great way to celebrate the end of the week while you’re hunkering down.

8. A sundress or summer shorts

These are light, look great and are comfortable so you can wear them often and not feel like you’re repeating your outfits. 

9. Your favorite watch

A watch will help you track time while you make lunch or walk the dog. It’s  ideal for staying on top of tasks, and boosting your productivity. 

10. Slippers

Cozy slippers will add an extra layer of comfort to cold-ish work mornings. 

11. Fresh ankle socks

Ankle socks will help keep your feet clean and ready to go anywhere on your breaks.

12. Leggings 

Leggings can be a great alternative to jeans and are just as versatile to pair with work shirts. 

13. Headbands

An easy fix to keep hair in place and look stylish while you do so. 

14. A Well-Fitting Belt

A belt that fits correctly will add comfort and style to your outfit.

15. A baseball cap

If your haircut isn’t in top shape or you’d like to keep flyaways tucked under, a cap can be a trusted friend. 

16. Linen pants 

Linen pants are lightweight and perfect for when your home is warmer than usual.

Consider Your WFH Style

Your new outfits will have to match your style, so think about what you usually wear to find the essential pieces for your work-from-home wardrobe.
