Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.
As we become used to this new normal that is staying at and working from home, life must go on. And for those who are still hard at work while in their living rooms, or maybe interviewing for new opportunities, it is important to dress the part.
While you're dialing into important virtual meetings, it helps to maintain a level of professionalism similar to the one you’d portray if you were having a meeting in person — from the waist up, at least.
Stick to earth tones, knits, and collars. Earth tones will not draw too much attention or distract. Knits will keep it cozy and calm. And a collared shirt or polo will always be respected for its business-ready aesthetic.
Scroll on for some work-from-home wardrobe additions to help keep things professional.
Clothe Mock Turtleneck
A mock turtleneck is a middle ground between casual and professional. It reads very well via FaceTime.
Beams Knit Polo
This combines the coziness of a sweater with a collar for business. The zipper is a nice element, too, giving this polo a changeable level of casual, and even translates as sexy if you wear the zipper low enough.
Urban Outfitters Corduroy Workshirt
Corduroy already has great texture, but over a screen, it will give off an extra nice vibe, especially if you are someone that wears great glasses. I'd recommend a thicker frame.
This striped J.Crew sweater is clean and understated enough to keep the focus on you.
MR P Half-Zip Sweater
You handle your business the best when you're comfortable. This half-zip is proof that you can have the best of both worlds.
NOAH Oxford Shirt
You always need an oxford shirt on deck for any occasion. The wide stripe is also a great design detail.
Jacquemus Polo Shirt
Graphics can work for meetings and interviews, as long as they’re not too loud or aggressive. An artichoke is painted beautifully in the corner, making this conversation-starting polo chicer than the average one.
Round Tortoiseshell-Acetate Glasses
You want glasses that make a statement but are still calm enough to not steal the show. Tortoise is a timeless print that always charms the viewers.
Dunhill Jacquard T-Shirt
When you're on FaceTime with some real effort put into your outfit, it's appreciated. You can see the quality of this shirt regardless of where you are.
Ray-Ban Tuscon Sunglasses
These sunglasses are timeless. The width of the frame is universally attractive; they're an asset to every look.
