The ongoing lockdown means that many of us will continue to work from home for the foreseeable.
Although, spending more time at home does have its plus points. Avoiding the commute and setting your alarm half an hour later seem like little luxuries. But, adjusting to the ‘new norm’ takes a bit of figuring out.
Apart from padlocking the fridge to diminish consistent snacking, knowing what to wear when working from your spare bedroom, is a daily dilemma.
Pieces that allow for easy wearing, yet appropriate for an impromptu video call counts for everything right now. Finding the ideal option between not changing out of your pyjamas to pulling on your (now too tight) skinny jeans is no mean feat.
While getting dressed for work makes you feel more motivated, updating your wardrobe with classic and comfortable pieces is the way to go (even if it’s just from the waist up).
Luckily, retailers have upped their loungewear game recently, in response to the growing demand for easy-to-wear options.
These are a few of our favourite ethical work-from-home pieces.
