Working from home can be a huge challenge for many people, but a key tactic for making it through is getting dressed each day. Yes, it can feel silly to wake up, shower, and put on a cute outfit only to sit in your home all day. But when you think about it, working from home is still work, and while many offices and teams encourage a casual dress code, you probably don't want to be on a videoconference with your coworkers, your boss, or clients in pajamas or sweats. If you do, that's cool. We rounded up some of our favorite PJ sets and sweatpants outfit ideas for comfy style. But if you're in need of or simply want a more professional look when working from home, a polished top is a great place to start. The best part? You can totally still rock a comfy pair of leggings or sweats on the bottom; no one on a videoconference can see past your waistline.
When shopping for tops to work from home in, styles like crisp button-down shirts, floaty blouses, and tees with unique design details like a puff or flutter sleeve are all comfortable and smart options. We even love a billowing tunic style as a fun and comfortable way to experiment with volume at home. Whether you're into neutral tones, a fun color (Spring's biggest color trends range from sky blue to yellow and green), classic stripe, or patterns like polka dots or floral prints, these types of silhouettes all appear professional without feeling too formal to wear at home. Plus, they're all totally versatile and acceptable to wear in an office whether you style one on its own or with a blazer over top.
