The Comfiest Clothes For Your WFH Situation

It seems like every state is operating with its own set of rules and Covid guidelines, all of which seem to be changing on a weekly basis, and honestly, I can’t keep up. So I’m trying to bring you a roundup of sh*t you can wear while you work from home, but realistically, I have no clue wtf your current WFH situation even looks like. Some people are still completely WFH, others are in the office half the week and home the other half, but seem to have a more casual dress code than “normal”, and there’s an unlucky group of you who are back in the office full-time as if we’re not still in a pandemic. So with all that being said, here are some comfy WFH options catered to whatever current work situation you’re in. 

If You’re Working Completely From Home…

Z Supply Zoe Sweatshirt, $60

Even if you’re still working from home, you most likely can’t just sit around looking like a total slob 24/7. Whether it’s because you have to be ready to go for a Zoom call or just need to feel some sense of normalcy, it’s great to elevate your WFH loungewear in whatever way you can. This Z Supply sweatshirt is the perfect combination of comfy and polished with its slight puff-sleeve detail.

Missguided Slinky Cap Sleeve Top, $30 $12

Nothing says “I have my sh*t together” like a turtleneck…but let’s not get crazy here, a mock neck will do. This top from Missguided keeps you professional and comfy. Also notable, this top is actually part of Missguided’s current However You Nude campaign which aims to redefine “nude”. This campaign is through a partnership with Models of Diversity, a charity that advocates for greater diversity in fashion, beauty, and media. So basically, buying this is a win-win.

M Lounge Wide Leg Pants, $57

We’re obviously all accustomed to our sweatpants after these past six months and, don’t worry, I’m not here about to ask you to give them up. Instead, I’ll recommend you get yourself a pair of sweats with a slightly more tailored look so that you don’t have to worry about your coworkers catching you in those tie-dye sweats you DYI-ed from a TikTok video back in April.

Softwear Women’s T-Shirt, $42

Most of us want to just live in a T-shirt when we’re home, but when it comes to the WFH lifestyle, you always have to be on high alert for a Zoom meeting ambush. And, when you do, the last thing you need is to be caught by your coworkers in your gross old tee from that one 5k you did in high school.

Zara Long Knit Sweater, $49.90

Get on board with the latest influencer trend, polos, while still staying comfy and professional with this knit sweater from Zara. It’s chic, cozy, and has a collar, so you’re ready for anything your WFH day may throw at you.

Lululemon Fast And Free High Rise Tight II 25″ Ice Dye, $138

If you’re sick of tie-dye, then it’s time to invest in ice dye, a new dyeing technique that gives a marbled look—or, my personal interpretation, almost a distressed denim appearance. These leggings are the type that you can easily sit in all day and yet are still high-performance so you don’t have to change out of your work leggings into your Zoom workout leggings.

Dippin’ Daisy’s Sunrise Top, $46

All your coworkers will see from behind their computer screens on your Zoom call is a button-down. Little do they know, this button-down is actually pajamas. What more could you ask for? They also have matching shorts, so you can be business on top, party on the bottom.

If You’re Working Half At Home And Half In The Office…

Yummie Denim Shaping Legging, $78 $49

It seems like for most people who are at the office part-time, the dress code is a lot more casual than their regular work environment. With that in mind, you can ensure you look put-together and also office-appropriate with these Yummie leggings that still look like jeans.

White Fox Stay In Touch Shirt, $49.99

A button-down always looks nice. However, no need to get all fancy and uncomfortable with it, I mean like, we are still in a pandemic. This button-down from White Fox is actually from their loungewear collection, so you know it’s going to be comfortable af.

JLUXLABEL Boxy Top, $22.79

As I mentioned before, turtlenecks make you look automatically polished. But again, no need to torture yourself with a fitted or chunky one that you’ll be sweating in by 10AM. Instead, opt for this lightweight woven top with its comfortable, boxy fit.

Free People Babydoll Dress, $128

As a proud owner of this dress, I can vouch for how comfy it is and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s super comfortable while also super cute, and still appropriate enough to wear to a casually-dressed office. Plus, as we move into the colder weather, you can pair it with tights and even layer with a vest to help you deal with the famously unpredictable office building temperatures.

Urban Outfitters Button-Front Jumpsuit, $124

I’m a huge fan of a jumpsuit because it’s an all-in-one easy outfit option that always looks good. This jumpsuit is nice enough to get away within a corona-casual office with its button details and simple collar. Also, its overall loose fit can guarantee it will be comfy all day.

If You’re Back In The Office Full-Time…

Marled Ludlow Shirt Jacket & Pants, $78

For those of you back in the office full-time already, you have it bad enough as it is, so I didn’t want to exclude you from the outfit roundup too. I’m going to help you out here and give you some office business-casual pieces that are actually still comfortable, such as this outfit from Marled. I own this set, and I love how it looks classy and polished but is still comfortable. Not to mention, Marled has paired up with Powwater, an organization implementing sustainable clean water projects around the world. They are giving a portion of the proceeds from this collection to the cause.

BB Dakota Girl Next Door Top, $79

This is the perfect fall sweater that you actually need if you’re back in the office. It’s comfortable with its lightweight material and will pair seamlessly with tons of things that are already in your closet. Plus, it’s cute enough to wear out on the weekends too.

Lysse Stretch Trouser, $118

First off, the fact that this pair of trousers has the word “stretch” in the name means you know they’re going to be comfortable. But, beyond that, they’re super stylish and have a clean tailored look to make them office-appropriate.

Princess Polly Cheyenne Shirt, $65

A collared shirt is an easy office-appropriate closet staple. This one separates itself from others with its silky woven fabric so it will be soft all day on your skin.

Nasty Gal Oversized Blazer, $90

A way to look sophisticated in the office while still feeling comfortable is an oversized blazer. Since it’s oversized, it won’t feel as restrictive as a fitted tailored blazer would. It’s also great for layering.

Whatever your current work situation is, there’s at least one piece here to help keep you comfortable all day long that fits your current work dress code. And, as a reminder, the guidelines for your state are probably currently changing as we speak, so don’t get comfortable with your work situation, just get comfortable with your workwear.

Comfy AF Loungewear You Can Wear Out To The Bar

If you haven’t gotten on board with the athleisure trend lifestyle yet, what are you doing with your life? It’s like, the best thing to happen to fashion since high-waisted jeans. For every girl out there who’s ever had the post-lunch questionably pregnant pouch, you KNOW how great high-waisted jeans have been for the culture. Anyway, besides being comfortable while looking stylish af, the other benefit of athleisure is the ability to purchase pieces that can be worn for both lounging and going out. (Okay, maybe not like “going out” to the club in Vegas, but “wearing out to a bar that doesn’t require heels” kind of going out.) I mean, a piece of clothing you can wear for both??? Like, talk about financially responsible! That being said, here are the pieces comfortable enough to lounge in, yet stylish enough to wear out.

1. Freepeople Second Base Tank

If you’ve ever worn anything from Free People’s Movement collection, then you know how comfortable their pieces are. This tank is the epitome of effortless style. The ribbed and distressed detailing make this tank more elevated than your basic tank. Wear it when you’re lounging with a cute bralette, or out with some sticky boobs underneath for a little subtle side boob action. Pair it with leather pants and a pair of heels and guarantee your drinks will be paid for all night.

2. X-girl Relaxed Flare Pant

I think I’ve said it more times than Scheana told us last season how quickly Rob can hang a TV, but neon is in. (Oh, it’s seven minutes by the way.) These pants are not only trendy, but also comfy and make for great loungewear. Pair with a loose cropped tee, like the one mentioned below, or with a sleek bodysuit for Kardashian vibes when going out. Either way, these pants are a must.

3. L’Academie The Jack Pullover

The best part about the athleisure trend is being able to wear a stylish sweatshirt out, especially in this brutal winter weather when you didn’t want to leave your house in the first place. Note: stylish sweatshirt. Don’t wear your college sorority sweatshirt out, that’s not stylish. Wear a pullover sweatshirt like this one paired with gold hoops, a tight skirt, and over-the-knee boots. It’s very Lala Kent vibes. And no, sorry not sorry for all the Vanderpump references. If you don’t know this about me yet, I’m a #pumprules die-hard, so take me as I am.

4. Princess Polly The Polly Tee

This T-shirt is cool, casual, and everything you could ask for from your loungewear. Keep it casual with some jogger sweats, or wear it out with distressed boyfriend jeans and a pair of cool boots. It’s pretty much the only T-shirt you need and, at a mere $30, you can’t go wrong.

5. Carbon38 Takara Leggings

I mean, get you a legging that can do both, am I right??? These leggings are chic enough to be worn out and comfy enough to wear around the house. They have rave reviews about how truly comfy they are, so you don’t have to just take my word for it. Not to mention, they come in a multitude of colors. So once you get your first pair and fall madly in love, you can go ahead and order a few more pairs with the rationale of them all being different colors, of course.

I don’t know how long the loungewear trend will last, but as long as the Kardashians are flaunting their absurd asses in comfy joggers, we can confidently say it’s here to stay for the time being. And, like I said, it’s actually responsible to buy these items because they’re multipurpose. So like, what are you waiting for?
