How are you holding up?
Are you one of the lucky ones who is able to work-from-home? Is homeschooling making life more challenging for you? Or are you on the front lines?
We’re working from home, but it’s super important that we get dressed every day. Does that mean I wear jeans or “real” pants? No. haha
I like to rock soft pants (shout out to my fave elephant pants), leggings (especially when they have side pockets for my phone), and maxi skirts/dresses.
I’d call my work-from-home style fableisure or boho, depending on which pants I’m wearing.
At night, I change into pajama pants. They’re different, I swear! They’re the pants you wouldn’t wear to the store or walking around the neighborhood. Generally loose-fitting, sometimes have cute patterns, always soft.
Allison, CEO of Daily Outfit, has a different routine that works for her. She wears comfortable clothing but dresses to impress. And, she always looks fantastic.
It’s important to find something that works for you!
Here are some of Allison’s tips on how to do just that…
Create looks you love from your existing pieces.
Changing Up Your Looks
Has your initial response to working from home was to stay in your pajamas or exercise clothes?
I totally get it. However, I definitely encourage taking your shower and getting dressed for your day.
When you change your clothes to fit the function, it helps you change your mindset to focus on the task at hand.
Here are some quick tips to make outfit creation easy:
Power of Three: When you put your looks together, expand beyond the basic top + trousers or skirt to add a third element to your outfit. Jackets are great for this purpose — especially in the Spring and Fall when the weather is changing and can swing from cool to warm in just one day.
Accessorize: The element that takes your look from good to great is your use of accessories. Whether it’s a belt or earrings or both, add some color, pattern or interest to your look with accessories. This is even *more* important now that you’re on video conference calls. Frame your face with a statement necklace, scarf or big, stud earrings.
Experiment: If you normally wear your favorite tee with a jacket and jeans, try it with a long skirt. Since you’re at home, there’s no risk — and you can see how it feels! Even on a video conference, no one will know the difference! If you like it, take a mirror-selfie and catalog it as a great look. If not, no harm, no foul — go back to the jean pairing!
