Comfy clothes to wear to work from home
Working from home is a daily reality for the many of us right now. It takes a bit of adjusting to get used to. There should always be coffee and healthy snacks on hand, and you should keep a routine just like you would if you were leaving your home to go to the office. And just like you would make your bed first thing in the morning, you should also be hopping out of those pyjamas.
The simple act of getting dressed into something other than what you’ve slept in will immediately shift your mindset from relaxed to productive. It also helps when your boss asks you to hop on a last-minute Zoom or Skype call! But that doesn’t mean you need to wear your best skirt or sit around in a constricting button-down shirt. You need a handful of comfy yet stylish pieces to help you come up with your best work from home outfit ideas. To help, we’ve gathered some of our favourite essentials that are fashionable & totally cosy!
The Super-Soft Wide Leg Le Wild Jeans
Our high waist wide-leg Le Wild jeans are perfect for working & relaxing in!
If you’re after straight leg jeans with a true vintage style these are the ones for you. The cut of these has a longer rise than any of our other styles for a looser fit. They’re super high waisted with straight legs which give you a wide look towards the calf and hem. Plus they have a touch of stretch for comfy couch lounging!!
Our Rosie trousers have a simple shape with a straight wide leg cut straight from the top of the thigh. They are comfortable enough to wear around the house all day but feel glam. Think 30s – 40s beach pyjama style with a kimono top or why not style this to look really 40s fortuneteller or with a cool 70s Stevie Nicks vibe.

Our Ann Margaret tops are slightly cropped & boxy, they look great with high waisted trousers & jeans. Featuring super long sleeves, the cotton jersey keeps you toasty too! It is available in Black & leopard print. Ann Margaret is the inspiration for this sweater. She’s a woman who always looks at home in her body with a combination of dance & physical comedy. Famous for her on-screen romance with Elvis Presley in Viva Las Vegas, this woman is sex kitten bottled. We love her high neck long sleeve tee looks mixed with tight high waist capri trousers for the dance scenes.

One of those versatile wardrobe staples you can wear in a range of ways. It definitely can keep you cosy and comfy as your work from home. Our Priscilla blouse is based on a mustard blouse worn by a receptionist in Girls Girls Girls, the 1962 Elvis movie. Simple tucks help give some shape to an overall box cut, back pleats on from the yoke allow room to move.
