17 work-from-home outfit options that are not loungewear or tracksuits

17 work-from-home outfit options that are not loungewear or tracksuits

Sick of loungewear hauls and knitted joggers all over Instagram? It’s time we upgraded our work-from-home outfits


Working from home for any extensive period of time means it’s easy to be tempted into tracksuits and fleeces as go-to outfits. Obviously you want to be comfortable and warm while sitting at home, and let’s face it, any day spent out of pyjamas and in actual clothing is a win. But always opting for slouchy loungewear can sometimes have an adverse affect on our mood — one that dressing up, in clothing that is still comfy and practical can fix.

Your daily attire for working from home doesn’t have to be strictly loungewear. Elements like elasticated waistbands, soft materials, oversize silhouettes, and plenty of room to move around are ones that can be found in plenty of pieces that are as far from tracksuits as can be. Plus, there’s the added benefit of them being completely Zoom-meeting friendly.

Interested? Here are our favourite pieces.
