Hello there 🙂
While working from home is considered normal for some, since someone who has been going to an office every Monday through Friday since I graduated from college would lie if I said that to me the last month of work full time by mine Apartment has not made some adjustments.
Of course I can't complain. I know I'm lucky enough to work and do something I enjoy doing, but I learned a few things along the way that I thought could be worth a share. In this forum, the lessons that apply the most relate to style and dress, of course. Below I disassemble the items that I have banished from my wardrobe since the beginning of WFH life, along with the things that I have worn repeatedly instead. Some are for comfort, others for morality. To read about everything and do some shopping on the go, just keep scrolling.
It sounds obvious, but I've actually seen a lot more jeans in my Instagram feed than I expected recently. While I recommend my WFH colleagues for keeping their denim game strong at home, my collection of rigid jeans with a super high waist is on the backbone for now.
Joggers and bike shorts have definitely been my first choice lately. I like to turn it on and when I wear joggers, I usually contrast them with a tight fit top and bike shorts for something oversized. A bit like what I would do if I actually went anywhere!
Similar to most of my trusted friends, I no longer have underwire bras at the moment. I can't rationalize the discomfort (no matter how small) when there are many suitable alternatives to sit at my dining table.
The bralette is currently my favorite of the alternatives above. Below are the styles I've worn on repetitions.
Apart from the one time that I dressed at home (for journalism reasons), everything that has a paragraph stays exactly where it belongs: in my closet.
Instead, I lived in comfortable slippers and funny socks (both individually and together) and I don't know how I'll ever wear real shoes again.
For clarification, I still wear my beloved pajama sets for sleeping, but I have been careful not to wear them while I work during the day. Even though they are comfortable, staying in "sleepwear" is a big blow to my morale.
However, a lounge set is now "office" permitted. You will feel like you are in pajamas, but you will look a bit more composed and still feel that way I got dressed today to get you going.
I initially had high hopes of keeping up with my accessory game during this time, but it was difficult for me to rationalize wearing rings when I typed on a laptop with nobody but myself all day. They were usually the first thing I would take off when I get home from work. They just stay away at the moment.
However, my love of necklaces lives on. I have a few finer styles that are preserved through sleeping and showering and still throw themselves on a chunky gold chain every now and then just to pick me up.
I was never a blouse in general, because I prefer the feel and fabric of T-shirts and tanks, so I didn't wear them, especially when I was working from home.
As mentioned above, as I mentioned above, I mostly turned between tightly ribbed tanks and oversized T-shirts, depending on my mood and the rest of my outfit.
Maybe it's just the types of skirts that I happen to own, but I've had no desire to wear a single one in the past few weeks.
On the other hand, there are comfortable dresses that happen to be a delight. Think long or loose styles made of soft or silky materials that don't feel restrictive.
