One of the most attractive things about working from home is the opportunity to wear whatever you want to the “office.” But while it’s tempting to snag an extra hour of sleep by simply rolling out of bed and turning on your computer, you could be making a mistake by working in your pajamas — even if no one is around to judge you for it.
So what’s the solution?
Dress it up! It will force you to put a little business back in your day. We’ve created a handy guide for the work-at-home wardrobe solution.
WEAR BUTTON-DOWN SHIRTS
Button-down shirts make everyone feel immediately more serious and sophisticated, which goes a long way when you’re surrounded by your undone laundry and dishes.
DO NOT WEAR SWEAT PANTS
You want to wear pants with a little structure, or that are at least made from a tougher material than something you’d sleep in. They will make it that much more difficult to get cozy in bed.
PLEASE, WEAR SHOES
Putting on real shoes signifies that your day has officially begun and that lazing around is no longer an option. Keeping them on is the most crucial outfit pointer for productivity.
