How to Work from Home in Comfort and Style


As we all weather the coronavirus pandemic from home, our daily needs have shifted. I work for an advertising agency that priorities video conferencing. I no longer need the stylish office attire hanging in my closet. Instead, I want to be comfortable at home without looking sloppy.

Below are some of my top wardrobe staples, for pulling off a cozy yet polished look!

Comfort On Bottom

First and foremost, you want to be comfortable, whether seated at your computer or chasing after your kids. Here are some of my most cherished quarantine pants!

Polished Up Top

Leggings look great with button-downs or sweaters. My work culture is pretty relaxed. Some days I can even get away with a fun sweatshirt. I find bright colors and bold patterns help lift my spirits!

You can almost guarantee, no coworker will see your feet via video chat! Therefore, comfortable and warm footwear is a must! My husband always complains about how many slippers I own! They are littered all over our house! I can’t get enough!

The Finishing Touches

At home, I mostly go makeup-free, and my skin is loving the breather! On days when I know I’ll be on camera, I’ll add a bit of concealer and mascara. You also may want to wear a pair of earrings and a necklace to finish the look!
