During the past year, there was an enormous shift towards working from home. Many companies shifted their work schedule to a more remote setting, and people are slowly starting to get used to working from home. Alongside this shift came new fashion trends.
Because many people are working from the comfort of their bedroom or couch, there’s no real motivation or need to dress up. However, there are still ways to look and feel professional in a relaxed work setting, all while staying comfortable. You can take a few common fashion trends and make them your own.
- Matching Sets
A great fashion trend to start with for anyone working from home is a nifty matching co-ord set. Co-ord sets make people feel more put together, as it’s a top and bottom that match in color, material, pattern, and design. The great thing about co-ord sets is that they come in many material options like knits, cotton, polyester, and cashmere. Dress them up or down, or choose a material that’s cozier for the cooler days.
Formal meetings, even the virtual ones, may call for women’s or men’s designer suits to match the occasion. Make sure you have at least one set in your closet ready for you to wear anytime.
Matching co-ord sets are incredibly comfortable, too. There’s no need to force tight-fitting jeans over a turtleneck to sit in on a Zoom meeting anymore. There’s also the option to mix and match the co-ord set with other existing items in a wardrobe.
- Stylish Glasses
Finding a good pair of stylish glasses makes a huge difference in both a work call look and eye protection. Glasses from Gucci are the perfect work-from-home staple, as they are durable with premium frames, stylish, and protective. The glasses are unique and elevate a work outfit. Gucci is known for styling most of its glasses with detailed engravings on the frame, with branded accents that add a sophisticated appearance.
Glasses can be a much more comfortable alternative to contact lenses, especially since contacts can cause dry eyes over a long period. It’s important to take a break from them every so often to let your eyes rest. Plus, when you’re looking at a screen all day, glasses can be a nice alternative.
- Statement Earrings
A good pair of statement earrings are great for those who work from home. Outside of work, statement earrings mostly make their debut at weddings, parties, or weekend nights out—but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear them to work. Earrings inevitably stand out in general, but taking it to the next level with a statement pair will be an eyecatcher during any virtual call.
The great thing about earrings is that they make people feel put together and add visual appeal. One could wear baggy clothes and no makeup but still, feel cute with a good statement piece. Matching the statement earrings with a similar necklace is another way to accessorize and put together a stunning work outfit.
- Have a Favorite Blazer
Although wearing cute or comfortable outfits while working from home is ideal for many, sometimes there’s a need to look more professional for a client video call or when conducting virtual interviews. However, there’s no need to get rid of comfort when dressing more professionally. Opt for a nice blazer or jacket to wear that quickly dresses up an outfit.
Black goes with everything in the fashion world, but a statement blazer doesn’t have to follow these rules. Finding a blazer in a fun and bright color is also an excellent addition to the wardrobe. Wearing bright or multi-colored clothes while working from home may inspire confidence and productivity for the day ahead.
- Fun Hairstyles
Changing up a hairstyle is another great way to change up a look for work. There are a variety of hairstyles to choose from, and depending on your hair length and texture, the options are truly endless. If there’s a full day of meetings and a need for a professional look, go for a sleek high or low bun with face-framing pieces. For more casual days, a messy bun or a half-up, half-down hairstyle will do the trick.
There’s also the option to experiment with hair accessories like headbands, different-sized clips, and scrunchies. These can be a great conversation starter, even over a virtual call. They offer a way to showcase your personality while working from home.
Feel Fashionable While at Work
Working from home doesn’t have to be boring, as many options allow for creativity. There doesn’t have to be a day full of meetings to dress up in a sleek co-ord set or push back the flyaways. Working from home is all about one’s unique routine, and there’s always room for a bit of fashion on the side.
