In the wake of the World Health Organization officially declaring COVID-19 a pandemic, many companies are demanding that their employees work from home to avoid contact with one another to stop any chances of the virus spreading even more. And as countries race to “flatten the curve” of infection rates in hopes of ensuring all affected get medical care, many of us are wondering what lyrics to wash our hands to and are definitely doing our best to engage in “social distancing” — which depending on your personality, is easier for some than others.

But even with a global health crisis fundamentally changing life as we know it and clearly affecting the global economy, it’s clear that productivity has to flourish even when you have to work from home. For us, one of the methods that help us turn our laziness to waviness is getting a fit off indoors. Self-quarantine or not, it’s amazing what putting on a proper pair of pants does for getting your brain into “work” mode.

And if you’re really pressed about flexing on your co-workers, isn’t that what video conferencing, FaceTime, Instagram, and mirrors are for? The key to a covetable WFH wardrobe means picking a mix of cozy pieces from familiar labels and some brands that are slept on (but not slept in). Elevated takes on track pants, soccer shorts, slides, and good socks are a great place to start, but you should also consider stepping up your house style game with a pair of luxe slippers and consider a pair of real pajamas, which when you think about it, is sort of the ultimate WFH power suit.
