Working from home during this lockdown has not diminished my love for getting dressed up. However, I have relaxed my notions of work style and I am playing around with old favourites mixing it with some new-found sartorial love. Dressing up helps me to stay positive and cheerful whilst balancing work, homeschooling and home chores and certainly keeps the creative juices flowing whilst taking away the stress a tad bit.
So, here are some favourite, easy to put together looks that can help you reduce outfit boredom.
Easy Work from home outfit ideas
A grab and go dress
A grab and go dress in an exciting print (like a leopard print) is my favourite option. You can dress it in various ways, here I have added a belt to cinch in the waist, a leopard headband and peep toes but this would equally look good with a blazer or just on its own with trainers. This dress is from London based Kemitel Ford who makes ethically sourced dresses in vibrant designs.
The versatile blazer
It might be easy to forget about blazers as working from home becomes the new normal (hopefully even after the lockdown). But blazers can spruce up any outfit and you can look polished within seconds. Here, I have thrown a blazer from Silk Fred which I got during a clothes swap meeting with a slip dress. Slip dresses are usually considered as a night out dress but a blazer can make it work appropriate. The dress is from New look and has been with me for months now.
Joggers and tee-shirt
Joggers are like PJs but a thousand notches glamorous, a leopard print one definitely is a must-have which can add a playful element to any wardrobe. These joggers are a preloved purchase from Vinted. I have spruced this look with a vegan leather jacket in red for added drama.
Jeans but playful
Jeans are the ultimate work from home outfit choice. I have here, opted for a vintage balloon style jeans from eBay fashion. Paired with a black tee-shirt and added a bring pink and orange necklace made with recycled fabric to add a pop of colour. A denim jacket and polka dot roll slip-on shoes complete the look.
The floral skirt
The floral skirt is another versatile style that everyone needs in their wardrobe. Easy to dress up or down, this style of skirt will see you for many, many years. It is a timeless style that suits every body shape, size and age group. This skirt is from Kemitel Ford (mentioned above) and I have paired it with a chambray shirt and peep toes.
I hope you like these easy to put together outfit ideas. As a slow fashion blogger, I am conscious that I get at least 30 or more uses with my clothes. Most of us don’t, and this is my key concern with fast fashion and mindless consumerism. Hence, I have made a conscious decision to restyle and repurpose more of the clothes that I already own. If you are interested in my styling over buying looks, do not forget to follow me on my Instagram handle where I post daily such looks.
Have a great day in lockdown, stay safe and keep the distance.
