The Best WFH Wardrobe Essentials Your Closet Is Missing
Back in May, we asked Glamour staffers about the best work-from-home clothes they’re almost always wearing, and the general consensus was nap dresses, cozy socks, and bike shorts were on heavy rotation. The pandemic raged on and here we are, eight months and seasons later, still couch-bound and dressed in clothes that make us feel polished enough for a Zoom meeting but ready for a Bridgerton binge the second we tackle our to-do lists.
With “professional” wardrobes having dwindled down to a handful of decided closet staples, we’re playing favorites with pieces that count towards actually “getting dressed” without being the least bit constrictive. That means leggings that feel like a second skin, boots that feel like slippers, and accent jewelry to make our looks pop from the shoulder-up.
As tempting as it is to stay swaddled in a robe from your morning coffee all the way to wine o’clock, putting an outfit together is good for mental health, and fashion brands have leaned heavily into loungewear to meet homebound consumers where they’re at. Stretchy bottoms, plush sweatshirts, and fuzzy slippers are at the top of the shopping list—along with mood-boosting items that bring lightheartedness to a period in time that’s felt anything but breezy.
If you’re looking for the best work-from-home clothes you’ll want to keep on rotation for the remainder of your time in quarantine, start by shopping Glamour staffers’ must-have picks below—from fuzzy cardigans to bottoms that feel like pajamas but look like real-life “pants.” Oh, and socks. Lots of socks.
