Fashion: Maintain A Certain Style Even Though You Work At Home

Updated on February 11, 2013

Fashion At Home

It's important to feel good and get dressed for the day if you want to be productive and feel like a person who's working. You may be able to bend the rules of the office a lot easier than if you had to go out to work. There really is a way to find outfits suited for what you're doing.

If you do work at home you can have a style all your own. You should. And I don't mean sweats. Whether it's jeans, tops, dresses, suits, or a fashion mix, it's important to have at least a little bit of understanding of how to put things together.

The easiest way to work on your wardrobe is to find a basic outfit that you collect in different colors. patterns, and textures. Like a friend of mine. She found that after trying on several different clothing styles that the basic scoop neck fitted sheath dress was her go to style. She had it in every fabric weight for every season. It just plain looked good on her.

My friend Cheryl's basic uniform is skinny jeans in every color with longer loose tops and short jackets, with scarves to match.

My friend Kim likes to wear regular jeans with sweaters and comfortable shoes. She's always been a fashionista whatever she's wearing.

I like to wear long fitted sweaters with leggings in many colors and textures.

Even if you do break down and feel you have to wear sweats, wear tops and bottoms that match. And wear the workout shoes too.

If you're plus size, I've seen plenty of make-overs on the Style network showing a nice fitting pant with long asymetrical tops or capes. Add great shoes,some jewels, and a large fantastic bag if you have to run out. And, you know you will. You always do. Think how great you'll feel if you're already dressed everyday when you need to go. The best way to do this is on some type of schedule. You know, like after you walk or something. The sooner you do this the faster you'll be ready for anything.

Whatever style you choose for yourself you need to mix jewelry, scarves, gloves, hats, belts, or something else you like to make your outfits work. Read all the fashion magazines, go to Go to Coco Girl on FB. Research looks. Try things on. Have fun looking good for yourself, your boyfriend, your husband, the cable guy...whomever.

      Relevant topic for me. I like the idea of maintaining fashion even for yourself. I notice that you did not recommend pyjamas for working at home, so I've got some work to do. Thanks!
