#WFH style, checked

by Voices Wellness 12 Oct 2020

Each month, we hit up IG to celebrate those style inspirations leading by example. This week we salute those who are make working-from-home look chic. By VOICES WELLNESS.

Work-from-home is part of the new work culture. That’s no reason, though, to get sloppy. As much as we’d love to roll out of bed and straight to work in our pyjamas, there’ll be times video work sessions are unavoidable. That means two things: Still look sharp and dapper, and don’t go without bottoms. For WFH sartorial inspirations, check out these accounts.

Tailored pyjamas are the new power suit: @happypreppy

This German creative director claims he can tie a bowtie, blindfolded – and by this dapper look he’s pulled together, we believe him. Who knew a set of matching red pajamas could look so professional? It’s all in the tailoring, and you can throw on a blazer over to sharpen it up further.

Sophisticated flower power: @levimcrombie

Think hippy chic, not just hippy chick. We are obsessed with this matching pant suit that @levimcrombie has picked. Comfy to lounge around in, but sharp enough to field a work call, why spend more time on matchy-matchy, when you can get some extra snooze time, simply with a top-to-toe, gorgeous floral print? Tip: Keep it tailored and opt for neutral or dark colours, to keep it professional.

Weather-appropriate style: @luxmondi

Based in Singapore, Monica Anne Lie is the founder of The Ordinary Co., a fashion accessories brand. Neutrals are not only classy and stylish, but she is partial to light, breezy picks and flattering, non-constrictive silhouettes that are ideal for Singapore’s humid and hot weather.

Utilitarian chic: @mercer7official

Founder of MERCER7, a London-based curated womenswear concept and a collaborative lifestyle platform, we’ve got a sartorial crush on Erna Leon. The fashion designer, stylist and creative director, embodies #WFH utilitarian chic. T-shirt dresses – like her no-fuss, no-muss pick by @andotherstories – are easy-to-throw on. To ensure you don’t look too casual (read sloppy), do as she does: It can be oversized, but it needs to be in a weighted fabric to lend it structure. Hers is in organic cotton – another plus, since it’s not only more environmental, but feels nicer on skin too. She teams it with Isabel Marant slides so it’s still comfy and not raggedy.

Quirky wit: @__nikko.o__

Based in France, we dig the quirky cheekiness of @__nikko_o_. He still manages to work in fun into his sartorial picks. What anchors a loud print from being too distracting is a solid background colour – in this case, black. The sleeves are long enough so that it doesn’t look showy, and a tie, just reminds you, it’s still business at the end of the day. A billowy pants silhouette is not only forgiving but also very comfy. 

If you’re sporting facial hair at the moment, remember it needs to look groomed still. Otherwise have a little fun with your dressing. You’re working from home, take advantage of it.
