Update: 11/18/2020 | WFH Clothing | What to Wear When You Work From Home (WFH)
What Does WFH Mean and Stand For?
Working from home (WFH) can be a blessing or a curse. WFH allows you to not have to go into the office and do your work from the comforts of your own home. There are some drawbacks, such as feelings of being socially isolated and getting distracted by chores or other errands that may need your attention.
One thing we LOVE about WFH is that you get to wear your pajamas while working. A major drawback of that is that you start to lose your sense of fashion when you never have to meet in person or go into the office.
One of the most important things about WFH clothing is that it should be more comfortable than what you would wear when heading into the office. There are plenty of brands that also have apparel that is comfy to wear both at home or in the office.
If you want to REALLY relax while WFH, we recommend buying workout apparel. Workout apparel is typically stretchy and comfortable enough for you to wear all day long.
Below, we’ll share our favorite brands and pieces that we think every WFH wardrobe needs.
What to Wear When You Work From Home
Leggings are SO versatile for both men and women. Leggings can take you for the desktop to a workout session in seconds.
When choosing a pair of leggings, make sure they’re comfortable, fit well, have a lot of stretch and are high-quality. You will practically be living in your leggings, so you want them to last a long time. If you find a pair that you love, buy multiples and rotate through them.
You do not want to wear the same leggings over and over again because of bacterial buildup and they can get pretty nasty.
The following leggings are great for WFH:
K-Deer Leggings ($88-$98)- Comes in different lengths, patterns, and colors. They’re super lightweight, comfy and can be used for high-impact workouts. They also have a stripe collection that gives back a portion of proceeds to different causes.

#2 Nice Comfy Blouse for Video Conferences
I have a few blouses that are wrinkle resistant that I wear when meeting with clients via video conferencing (VC). I typically wear them 5-8 times prior to washing. It saves me money on laundry and allows me to look professional in meetings.
I also tend to change my tops immediately after my VCs end. This keeps it fresher for longer. Hang-up all your tops to keep them organized and clean.
Some brands with blouses that we love to wear for our VCs include the following:
- Rails at Nordstrom
- Ministry of Supply – You’ll LOVE their Aero Zero Boyfriend Top!
- ADAY – Use this link to get $20 off your first order of $100.
#3 A Robe
I could not live without my robe. You can easily throw on your robe after you get out of bed. It keeps you warm when it’s cold outside and can be a comfortable companion when you’re sitting in awkward positions on your couch trying to be productive.
We love short robes with pockets so that you can keep your belongings closeby and go hands-free when you need to.
#4 Comfy Tops
For tops, wearing a tank top or t-shirt works in a WFH setting.
We love breathable fabrics such as cotton or athletic fabrics that wick away moisture and are often breathable.
Our favorite work from home shirts include:
- Love Tees by lululemon – V-neck t-shirt made from soft Pima cotton fabric that drapes nicely. The tees also come in various prints and colors.
- Amor Crop Tank ($78) by Spiritual Gangster – This racerback tank top is so soft and breathable. We wear this as a top or bra.
#5 House Sandals
We have a pair to wear in the home and one to wear outdoors. They’re a bit spendy but worth it!
APL slides come in both men and women’s sizes and plenty of colors to choose from.
Joggers are a girl’s best friend. They keep you warm and are comfortable. Joggers typically have pockets, a drawstring waistband and cuff at the ankle.
We love joggers from the following brands:
- ALO Yoga
- Vuori – We LOVE their performance joggers! So soft, comfy and won’t pill!
- Carbon38 – Use code SHMGY25 for 15% off your first two orders.
- Spiritual Gangster
Hoodies are great for throwing on when you feel a little cold. Wear them over tank tops or tees. Easily take them off when it gets too warm.
If you have a work from home jobs, we highly recommend being as comfortable as possible.
