Working from home, home workouts, an endless number of nights in… it seems like the occasions to dress up smartly are becoming fewer and fewer. And with it, the chances of refreshing our wardrobe with purpose are diminishing. However, it does not have to be that way! The benefits of getting ready in the morning before starting a day of working from home are endless, including a much-needed increase in productivity levels. At the same time, being comfortable and unrestricted is paramount.
Athleisure is a trend that is not destined to fade away any time soon. Embracing it can give you the alternative that you had been looking for. Brands like Gym King offer high-quality, comfortable items that can be styled to suit any of your needs while staying at home and beyond.
Skin-tight yoga pants, trainers, and oversized tees have come a long way in terms of style and materials. Today you can enjoy complete freedom of movement, comfort, and coverage – all while looking like you have crafted an outfit down to perfection.
Invest in Comfy Smart Outfits
Working from home might have slightly changed your morning routine. Now most professionals can enjoy a meditation session before heading to their home office rather than scrambling to get on the right tube. However, if you have been skipping the getting ready rituals, you might need to start thinking about bringing those back – with all the necessary adjustments.
Of course, if you are working from your home office, heels and jackets might no longer be the priority. However, high-quality or smart activewear items can turn out to be enough to improve your self-image and allow you to look professional in front of your clients.
Allow for Extra Space
No need to be office-uncomfortable anymore. Since you won’t need to join meetings or give presentations in person for a while, invest in clothes that are non-restrictive and allow you to enjoy your time working from your home office.
Some items, such as oversized white shirts with a twist, can be extremely comfortable while allowing for freedom of movement. If you are not planning on meeting clients and you are happy to conduct your meetings via video call, you could also get away with a stylish pair of yoga pants.
Loungewear Can Be Stylish
Once your day at your home office is over, it might be extremely tempting to slip out of your outfit and swap it for pyjamas. Without set work shifts, this can start happening at any point between 3 pm and 8 pm. However, the day is still long, and there is no need to give up on your look – even if it is only for a film marathon or the new episode of your favourite TV series.
Moving forward, the chances are that you will be spending many of this summer’s evenings enjoying these activities. So, refreshing your wardrobe and investing in comfortable but flattering underwear can give you that self-esteem boost while feeling extra cosy on your sofa.
