In this unique time of navigating through the impacts of the ongoing pandemic, people get to explore different coping mechanisms not only for their physical wellbeing but also for their optimal functionality at work. It has gotten more difficult to be on ‘work mode’ when the line between personal and professional life almost becomes non-existent. Therefore, many look for ways to somehow revive that kind of normalcy by investing in outfits that can condition their mindset and feel good about themselves.
Work From Home Style Guide
If you’re one of those looking for some inspiration to look fab at home as you switch to your work mindset, you’re in the right place! It’s truly tempting to stay in the same pyjamas for weeks but doing so might affect your motivation with a lack of turning phase which can be achieved through dressing up. To be on top of your work and fashion game, here is a style guide to help you elevate your basic outfit.
Comfort Meets Style
In order to save time but still look gorgeous, the way to go is a basic tee that can be partnered with a denim jacket. This will make you stay comfortable and motivated as you’re in your simple yet ‘game-on’ clothes. Plus, let’s get real–you won’t be able to show the lower half of your body in meetings most of the time so no need to bother thinking about what pants or shorts to wear. Though, if you really want to go all out, opt for your favourite jeans and classic skate shoes. You’ll surely feel more put-together especially when you’re enjoying a hot cup of coffee as well.
Staying Upbeat With Floral
There are a lot of reasons to feel blue nowadays, but there are also ways to combat them such as putting on a bright and flowey dress! Who wouldn’t feel radiant when flowers seem to be forming an embrace, right? As you get chic with warmth, you can also consider matching it with a checkered cardigan and rocking a red eyeshadow to complement the flora on you. Though, don’t overdo your makeup since there’s still got to be some balance. Do your hair and be an inspiring sun ray during possibly dull meetings.
Neutral Minimalist Look
This is perfect for those who love earth colours and the classy black and white combination. The white button-down will never go out of style. If you’re running out of ideas, pick that up from your closet and match it with black leggings or trousers. This look can ooze a super chic, professional feel. In case you want to have some touch-ons, don’t hesitate to explore wearing a silk bandana and light eye make-up and blush which can make you feel as if you’re low-key on fire.
It’s getting colder by the day so you should always be prepared with a cozy sweater or knitted cardigan. Though, you should do away from the chunky type of sweater. On camera, you might look as if you’ve just gone out of bed. Contour your cheeks a bit and add a nude lipstick as you deem fit. You can pair your sweater with dark jeans or a long comfy skirt to complete your look. Letting your hair down is okay as it could highlight the shape of your face since you already did contouring. Though, if you want to put it up, wear cute little earrings that can contribute to the delightful vibe we’re aiming for.
The Gist of it
This style guide can help you focus more on your work. Don’t sacrifice comfort before style especially when they can meet halfway. We hope that this guide inspires you to continue life the prettiest way possible and make wonders happen. Remember that beauty comes from within. Don’t forget to take care of yourself. This may significantly add up to the look you want to achieve.
