we’ve talked a lot about the importance of looking and feeling our best during these unprecedented times. in fact, on Monday, we took the question does fashion still matter head on. we came to the conclusion that it’s important to maintain our routines to the best of our ability and carve out some semblance of normalcy. totally difficult to do, especially now that many if not most of us are working from home. if this is the first extended period of time you’ve been asked to do so, it can be challenging. no doubt. and one of the obvious question then becomes: what to wear when working from home?
almost ironically, from the perspective of selection, it may be one of the better times to be working from home. athleisure has come such a long way over the past few years: it’s possible now to be totally comfortable while still looking good. to this end, today, i’ve put together a little tutorial for you all. i’ve got 3 pairs of comfy pants worn 6 different ways. hopefully it will inspire you to shop your closet and put together outfits that make you look and feel good as we all navigate the work from home situation.
i’m loving this pajama jogger pant from J.Crew—might be the comfiest of the three.
need a color pop? take the same joggers, but this time, pair them with a striped pullover. perfect for those cooler spring days we’re still getting here in Athens. and also perfect for when that AC kicks on when it shouldn’t.
next up is a pair of green linen pants old, similar here) styled 2 ways. do you love linen as much as i do? super airy and comfortable and transition perfectly into summer.
our third outfit is very similar to our first. i’ve got a white collarless tuxedo shirt (old, similar here) and sandals from J.Crew. a neutral base again, but if you’re looking for a little more color, we’ve got you covered.
a denim jacket is an essential spring item. full stop. we talked about how to wear a jean jacket on the blog yesterday, if you’re looking for more inspiration. but look how well it pairs with our green linen pants. i’ve got a striped tee underneath. but anything would work here, especially a fun graphic tee.
nothing says work from home like a sweatshirt and sweatpant. i’ve gone monochromatic here, but you don’t have to. anything, and i mean anything goes with a gray sweatpant. try a cashmere hoodie if you’re looking for true comfort. or go with a tee—long or shortsleeved. you can’t go wrong, and no doubt you’ll be able to shop your closet for this one.
