And The Chicest WFH Employee Award Goes To...YOU
It’s officially Day ___ of quarantine… Well, it depends where you are right now but we’re all in the same boat - stuck at home, with either nothing to do or busy with work. Probably, the hardest decision you’d ever have to make is to decide what to eat next or which pajama to use after your shower (if you do decide to take a shower) or sometimes, which clothes to add to the “worn-but-not-dirty” pile aka The Chair. Let me take one thing off your list of tough decisions for today. Our theme is smart casual, where your upper half is smart and the bottom half is casual.
Let’s face it, we try to look half decent when on a video call by putting on some makeup and a proper shirt. Pro tip: don’t wear plunging necklines or a tank top. You wouldn’t want to look naked on your call. Instead, wear something with a higher collar like a round neck T-shirt, mock turtleneck, turtle neck, or even a collared shirt if you’re feeling motivated.

For the bottom half of your body, we may think that no one actually looks at what you’re wearing down there. It’s true BUT what happens if you accidentally stand up and the people on the other end sees something… unexpected? Pants are really important even if you’re home all the time. Wear something comfortable - something you can sit on your chair or bed cross-legged or just lounge in.

Dresses are long blouses or shirts. You stay fashionable and professional up there and yet chill and literally breezy down there. For the quarantine look, go for the loose and flowy dresses to maximize leg flexibility for lounging.

Jumpsuits can either be your friend or your foe. It can be your friend in a way that it could be like a comfy onesie or a dress with shorts that you won’t have to decide what to wear below. However, it can be your foe especially if you’re the kind who needs to go to the bathroom often. Why did no one ever think about putting a zipper down there? Is that even a good idea? Jumpsuits are tricky but can be comfortable depending on your bladder’s needs.

Since it’s quarantine period, now’s the perfect time to let your feet take a break from wearing heels. Let those calluses soften and heal. You can put on some foot moisturizers or cream and cover it up with socks. No one is going to judge you for wearing socks with your sandals.

Believe me when I say that you don’t need some fancy ring to spice up your look when working from home. All you need are earrings and a necklace because they’re the only accessories that can actually be seen on the screen. This is, unless you want to be like Beyonce below.

Regardless of what you wear, make sure you’re dressed from top to bottom (just in case) even if they’d only see the top half of you. Number one rule is to make use of this time to stay productive yet comfortable.
