Comfy Work From Home Wardrobe Essentials for Women

I have had the privilege of working from home throughout the COVID pandemic and while doing so, found the need to step up my work-from-home wardrobe essentials.

And I know that for myself and so many others, we are continuing to work from home so if you haven’t already, it’s time to invest in a work-from-home wardrobe!

For me, having some sense of normalcy has been key to maintaining a healthy routine. Every morning, I like to get up, take a shower, put on some mascara, and get dressed.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m certainly not getting dressed to the degree I used to, but I truly believe that even the act of taking off your PJ’s to put on different PJ’s will provide a positive shift in your mentality.

So most days, you’ll likely catch me wearing leggings and an athletic long-sleeve top, whereas on days that I have virtual meetings, I like to put on a cute, comfy shirt that could pass as me “putting in effort”. 

From casual to business-chic, if you’re in need of some comfy work from home wardrobe essentials, this compilation of loungewear will provide the comfort and confidence that you deserve in your workday.

Let’s start shopping, shall we?!
