It’s been a while of working from home, meaning the ‘I have nothing to wear‘ feeling could arrive any day now. Sure, not going to the office means you can dress up accordingly, even in comfy pyjamas and cool T-shirts that can pass off as semi-casual on those Zoom meetings! But that tends to get repetitive at some point, doesn’t it? To break the pattern of humdrum workwear and take a sartorial leap, you will need a little inspiration for your existing wardrobe to do the trick. Are you all set to work the waist-up dressing in your favour?

There’s no denying the classic appeal of a white shirt, a wardrobe essential that you can style in umpteen ways. For your WFH uniform, bring the separate out of your closet if clean-cut lines and an emphasis on the silhouette is your cup of tea. Layer a couple of necklaces to get on board the jewellery trend or opt for a loosely-wrapped printed scarf to further define your waist-up WFH look.

We have said it before and we will say it again—summer layers make for effortless dressing that is equal parts comfortable. Throw on a lightweight blazer or shrug on your tee for an important video call or go a step further to experiment with your summer layering ideas. Team your camisole or going-out top with your formal shirt to elevate your workwear ensemble, mixing and matching colours for impact. 

Formal Attire

Whenever in doubt about workwear, skip the fads and opt for a no-fuss basic that fits the bill. From sleek shirts and strategic frills to experiments with sleeves and details, you can always rely on formal clothing to impart a chic appeal, ideal for your waist-up WFH look.

Brighten up your everyday video calls by injecting some uber-cool summer prints to it. Florals and abstract motifs aside, you can always opt for a failsafe check pattern to take you through the day in style. On the accessories front, you will find statement picks to be instant mood lifters; add to your video call routine a vivid pendant or a pair of earrings. 

All set to spruce up for your upcoming Zoom meeting with your waist-up WFH look? Go all out with your pick!
