6 Easy Steps to a Work-from-Home Wardrobe That Suits You

How has the pandemic affected the way you dress for work?

Is there any correlation between the way you dress and your productivity levels?

For many people, mindset impacts productivity the most. But what if we could manifest a productive mindset by playing a bit of dress ups?

For me, the best part about working from home is saying goodbye to tailored pants and blazers. Instead, I’ve welcomed a more relaxed work-from-home style into my wardrobe, one that can be styled up for office-appropriate outfits.

The pandemic has resulted in varied work conditions for everyone. Many of us are juggling all the life commitments – parenting, side hustles, and renewed social calendars. And as we start heading back into the office after what feels like forever in lockdown, it's great to see that many companies are starting to adopt a 'dress for your day' approach.

But what does this even mean for us practically?

The parameters of what used to define our work wardrobes have cross pollinated with at-home comfort. A one size fits all dress code is a thing of the past. And that means it's time for us to reassess our wardrobes and finally eliminate all the overwhelm that comes with trying to decide what to wear every morning.

Have you looked back on what you've worn and felt most comfortable in during lockdown? It likely looks very different to your usual 'work wear'. What you thought your style was pre-pandemic is probably not the same as your current style. And that's cool. Our style shifts over time based on our lived experiences. But what most people don't realise is that their wardrobe needs to shift and evolve as they do.

Thankfully, this doesn't mean we need to throw out or donate our entire wardrobe to make room for new pieces. It's actually about carefully evaluating what we already have and if it still represents the best version of ourselves. Because at the end of the day, that's what we want. We want to look and feel like the best version of ourselves and we want that ALL THE TIME.

Here's some steps that'll help you as you detox your current wardrobe and build one that works hard for you (you probably invest a lot of time, energy and money in your purchases, so it's only fair your wardrobe works hard in return!)

1. Think about what kind of style best reflects you

  1. Is there a type of outfit you are most drawn to?

  2. What item in your wardrobe do you wear the most?

  3. Is there a particular outfit you wear that makes you feel like your best?

The items you are most drawn to, or the ones you wear which make you feel your best, will go towards defining your personal style.

2. Take out each item in your wardrobe

This is where we really evaluate each item to see if it still serves you.

Remember, the aim of the game is to have a well curated wardrobe that works for you. Your wardrobe shouldn’t be making you stressed or anxious; it should be making your life easier.

3. For each item in your wardrobe, ask yourself -

  1. Is this item a true visual representation of myself and meet my style outcomes

  2. Does this item still fit

  3. Is it still of good quality

  4. Does it suit my lifestyle

  5. Can I style this item several different ways for different occasions

4. If you answered yes to all of the above, that item can go back into the wardrobe

5. If you answered no, put it in the pile to donate or throw away

6. If you answered maybe and need some guidance, send me a message!

As always, if you need a little helping hand along the way, shout out!

With love and kindness
