Staying in your pyjamas while you WFH might sound tempting, but we’d like to tell you why dressing up for work is still so important. Separating your work clothes from your PJs gives structure to your day to help you maintain a sense of normalcy. It even boosts your productivity as you are reminded to not stay too chill. Perhaps most importantly, overhauling your off-duty look and rocking a great outfit gives you joy.
Blame it on Katie Holmes for making the knitted-cardigan-and-bra combo so iconic. Put an elegant spin on off-duty dressing by layering a longline cardigan over a soft-cup bra and a pair of timeless wide-leg pants by Loro Piana – the Italian brand known for its second-to-none fabric and fit.
Pair Loulou Studio’s hoodie and Skin’s satin pants for an effortlessly elegant statement. Style these sumptuous separates with luxe slippers by cult New York designer Lauren Manoogian and use your extra down-time to try out some new products.
Consider investing in a pair of Asceno’s classic silk pyjama sets for the ultimate form of sartorial self-care. Top it off with a cashmere cardigan from Loro Piana for a polished look with unparalleled comfort. After your relaxing bath, slip on a nightshirt and a pair of cosy cashmere socks. Bliss.
Incorporating sportswear into your look is an extra incentive to make mindful movement a regular part of your day. Pair Reebok x Victoria Beckham’s sports bra with Balenciaga track pants and a Gucci sweatshirt for a directional take on workout gear. Slip into Proenza Schouler + Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals to complete the look.
