With second lockdowns being enforced across Europe and many in the US still in long-term quarantine, working from home is going to be part of our lives in some capacity for much longer than we ever imagined.
If you’ve been WFH over the past 6 months then you’ll likely know that while it may feel like there are no rules when it comes to the wardrobe, getting up to work in your pajamas is a no-go. It's important to get up with a purpose and vague routine, and getting dressed before work is one of the most important factors, so why not make the most of it?
We’ve tried out a whole host of homebound looks, from downright lazy to some all-out effort fits. It turns out that there’s no one correct style for WFH, so we've put together some suggestions of differing styles for you to try on for size. From scumbro style to a pair of houndstooth pants and faux-fur slippers, Highsnobiety curators have captured every WFH mood.

No Meetings, No Fuss
This fit is nothing crazy and it always works, ticking comfort and basic style boxes. Up top, a Casablanca tee steals the show with a strong, Mediterranean-style graphic that paves the way for a more minimal finish to the outfit. Dickies 874 cutoffs are an all-time winner thanks to the straight leg and subtle creases for a slightly more formal take on homebound style while UGG slippers in black suede round out this no-frills ensemble.
When you wake up and have to flex, this attitudinal fit should do the job. Suicoke is the real highlight here with an eye-catching, insanely cozy faux-fur construction. Working up from the furry footwear, Needles’ houndstooth trousers feature an elasticated waistband akin to classic sweatpants styles, but the houndstooth print and creases position this pair in a more formal arena. A Phipps hoodie is the finishing touch, holding together the earth-tone palette and contributing a graphic punch to the mix.
Sometimes it’s a shirt day and there’s nothing you can do but obey the button-down energies. For days like that, opt for a pared-back number like Kestin’s Arbroath Shirt Jacket. This piece allows you to button up in time to look clean for a video call while also sporting your favorite tee underneath. Quilted adidas trousers continue the khaki palette and need little explanation: they’re quilted trousers, what more reason do you need? We’re finishing this outfit with a pair of trusty Birkenstocks. The Birkenstock Boston has emerged as one of lockdown’s silver linings thanks to serious comfort and its memorable silhouette.
