As more and more people join the work-from-home taskforce these days, I can’t help but pay closer attention to the outfits I have found myself wearing day after day while I work from home running my own business. I like to think I’ve found that nice balance between completely given up and comfy/cozy. To help inspire others to find comfy work from home outfits, I found some inspiration to gather 20 essential pieces to the work-from-home wardrobe.

Dress it up
Even if you are covered in loose, comfortable clothing all day, why not dress it up a little with a gold minimalist necklace. This can be such a great way to make your cozy work at home outfit seem a little fancier.
The oversized cardigan
I am so glad I’m not the only one who has become obsessed with the “librarian sweater” as I like to call it. This oversized cardigan looks easily pairs with any kind of pants. Like, for real. Leggings, sweats, jeans, or dress pants. It’s like wearing a blanket all day.
The t-shirt tuck in
Instantly you become more work-appropriate when you tuck in your shirt. So wake up, tuck your shirt in and you’re basically wearing Prada. (Is Prada even cool anymore? I don’t know.)
Going with the flow
These amazing pink flowy pants are the perfect balance between comfort and workwear. It’s a great way to dress up any cozy work from home attire.
Finding adorable matching “sweats” allows you to be completely comfortable at home while still looking a little more put together than if you were running around in your favorite Van Halen T-shirt and bleach stained sweats.
Who says you can’t actual dress a little work casual from home? If dressing a little nicer makes you instantly feel better when being trapped at home, then I say, do it!
Lounging around the house is so much better when your feet are happier. Plus, that cozy, sherpa-lined slipper look is something you can get away with just about anywhere.
Business on the top, party on the bottom
Have a Zoom call? No problem! Just dress up your top and stay crazy comfortable on the bottom! This simple grey blazer paired up with a T-shirt and sweats is ideal.
Leggings are starting to be something I love more and more. Yeah, I’m way behind the curve, I know. Personally, my favorite is the American Eagle, Aerie leggings. I have yet to find a pair that don’t fit fantastically. Spanx also offers amazing, comfy leggings!
Sport the crop
Have you ever considered maybe wearing a crop top but it makes you crazy uncomfortable? Well, now is the time to test it out. Grab yourself a pair of high-waisted leggings and pair them with a cute crop top. You just might end up loving how you look!!
The little black PJ set
I love the idea of a completely sleek, black pj set. It looks dressy even when you’re just being totally comfortable! Plus, black just never goes out of style!
I love dresses! People instantly assume that you put effort into your appearance if you’re wearing a dress. In reality, you through on one piece of clothing. Plus, if you choose wisely, you get way more comfort and breathing room out of a dress than you do pants! A cute T-shirt dress is perfect to transition from in the house to running errands.
Loose-fitting, distressed jeans are one of my favorite go-tos whether I am working from home or not. It’s a great way to be comfortable around the house while still getting you out of your sweats for a day.
Just like with our oversized cardigan, don’t let yourself believe that a sweater can’t operate as work from home comfy! As an added bonus…that lace bralette underneath is so dang cute!
The white tee
Classic. Like the little black dress butt for work at home people. Sticking with a classic white tee instantly makes you match pretty much any bottoms you decide to put on!
His dress shirts
Why not go oversized dressy casual by sneaking into your man’s side of the closet. No man? Just buy yourself one! Because how cute is this?
Cozy jumpers and rompers
Rompers and jumpers have always been the epitome of comfort so you may as well bring that comfort to work (at home)! Not to mention I am a big fan of the off-the-shoulder look.
Faux-get about it
Put on leggings that look extra sexy? Spanx faux leather leggings are all the rage right now and it’s pretty easy to see why. So if you really want to combine comfort and cute, they just might be worth the investment.
You didn’t think I was going to make it through an entire post without mentioning the comfy socks, did you? Something about fuzzy socks just instantly makes you feel better about yourself.
Yeah, we can’t leave out the messy bun either. These messy updos are done right with a scarf or headband/scarf. And let’s be honest, we all want to cover up the fact that we didn’t shower. Right? Right.
