In a few short weeks, many people will be planning back-to-school looks for kids of all ages. But what about the parents or those who have adopted a remote work schedule?
During the last few months, many people joined the growing group who has already adopted work from home strategies for years. With productivity increasing in many cases, along with the advancement in communication technology, the new routine could be common practice for many going forward. According to Fundera , telecommuting and working remotely is more popular than it has ever been and continues to grow. In fact, here are a few insights:
-As reported in 2020, 5 million employees (making up 3.6% of the entire U.S. workforce) work
from home for at least half the time.
-The number of regular telecommuting employees (excluding the self-employed population) has
grown by 173% since 2005.
-By 2028, one study estimates that 73% of all departments will have remote workers.
-Two-thirds of managers who offer telecommuting flexibility report that employees who work from
home are overall more productive.
So that leads us to the next question, what should you wear when working remotely?
First, you must ditch the pajamas. Just because you are working from home and it may be new to you doesn’t mean you should treat it like a casual Saturday morning. In fact, you should keep your normal routine in the morning as it can help your mood and overall well-being. By dressing up each morning, you should still feel a sense of normalcy and accomplishment in what you do.
Second, it’s ok to go casual. Again, just not too casual.
For women, you can keep the heels in the closet and go for something more relaxed such as flats, slides or even athletic shoes. In addition, suit pants can be tucked away in the drawer too for something like stretchy jeans or more casual pants or bottoms.
For a top, steer away from the corporate tops and go for a more relaxed t-shirt with a design, pattern or one that is simply a solid color.
When it comes to jewelry, keep it simple. Look for accent pieces or colors that will pop and add color to an outfit. Headbands, necklaces, bandannas and scarves are all top choices.
If you follow these tips, you should be comfortable in any setting and ready for a Zoom call in minutes. And when you schedule breaks or leave home, you won’t have to worry about your outfit as you’ll be ready for any occasion or daily tasks.
