5 Cozy pieces for Remote Working

As working from home is becoming the new normal, figuring out what to wear to keep it professional yet comfortable has been a new topic of concern for many. So here are our 5 work from home pieces you can wear for casual and formal remote working styles.

Stay cozy and ready to be active with First Class hoodies

Whether you are off for a quick run to the grocery store or need to buckle down at the desk, or even relaxing on the sofa watching TV, a warm and cozy hoodie will keep you ready for any at-home situation.

Keep your legs covered with a Long skirt

While the webcam will only catch your upper half, it is easy to forget about your lower half. One of the top issues for career women when working from home is getting chilly legs. So keep them warm and covered in a long skirt. And you’ll never know if your lower half will need to make an on-screen appearance for a video call, so keep it light and flash a bright print long skirt to the camera.

Slip on a natural Long dress and you are set

For a casual work-from-home outfit you can complete in one-two-three, simply slip on a long dress and you can focus on your work and errands. And with a feminine print it looks great for online video calls too.

Add a chic touch with a Relaxed material

You can relax and be video-conference ready with the right material and design. Go for materials that feel soft on the skin like a cushiony-soft jersey or a fleeced lining for extra warmth. For material that wicks away moisture and keeps you cool, choose 100% cotton jersey. Combined with a simple design with a relaxed silhouette, you can stay truly comfortable and mobile and still look presentable for online meetings.

A Knit outer brings out the best of both worlds

When you want to maintain a true professional style from home, then look no further than a (machine-washable) knit cardigan or suit jacket that will keep you looking sharp and focused without compromising your comfort. And for true work-at-home advantage, you can easily take it for a spin in the washing machine and have it ready for another day!

How to optimize your wardrobe to keep it de-cluttered

In our last post, we explored the Japanese concept of ‘danshari’ and how to clean out your closet in time for Spring. Choosing to simplify your closet is one thing, but keeping it that way can be easier said than done. It is surprisingly easy to fall back into the rabbit hole of impulse buying, rather than buying for what we actually need. So to remember that we are shopping to save time, money and space and clarity in the long run, we need to be shopping for value.

1. Choose items to meet your lifestyle

Take a little time to think about and assess your lifestyle. Are you pressed for time? Do you move or travel a lot? Do you get frustrated with comfort? Choose core values that highlight your needs in clothing, and keep them down on a memo or notepad on your phone or next to your computer screen, to remind you and stop you from making a purchase that will add to the clutter.

2. Versatility

Opt for simplicity in design and have go-to’s. Keeping a minimalistic color or design palette can not only look chic and contemporary, it is incredibly versatile too. Dedicate a go-to outfit for at least 4 occasions with the same simple dress as the center-piece. Spend a little time trying on the looks beforehand and setting them aside near the closet door. When you are stuck in the morning, so you can at least have your staple outfit ready at hand to throw on in seconds.

Simple colors and elegant designs for versatility in outfits

3. Quality

Choose quality and comfort that will last. While it is easy to buy cheaper items, they are cheaper for reason. Treat your clothing like you would treat your phone. You wouldn’t want to spend your time and money buying a new, more inexpensive phone every single year, when you can buy the best smartphone on the market and have it last you for several years. When you spend that extra money, you know it will last you, so you don’t need to buy a new one so soon. Same with clothing – cheaper quality clothing that can not endure your day-to-day use or can deteriorate even from the washing and drying process. These items become easy to throw away or forget about, and accumulate to the clutter in your closet and eventually ending up in landfills. Choose quality items for the long run to save you time and money, and let you focus on what is important – you.

To add additional value to your wardrobe staples, you can also opt for specially tailored pieces that are especially made and designed to fit you.

Having the option to choose your favorite color, print, length and style, with a premium quality that will last makes the item more personable and valuable.

So keep these in mind the next time you go shopping or online shopping, and optimize your wardrobe and routine.

All our items are designed to be versatile, machine-washable, easy to maintain and resilient for a wardrobe that will provide you the high value you need and save you time and money. We offer free global delivery so you can have piece of mind from the tap of your fingertips to the front of your door step.

How to wear print dresses and what do they convey?

If the little black dress is the staple item for the woman’s wardrobe, tell it to move aside because this year it is time to be bold and empowered with print. You may find it daunting to take the first step into print territory with so many styles and options available on the market. But today we will look at outfit ideas with the most common print patterns you will come across, so you can easily pull together a look for your next work look or day off.

Stripes

Stripes are a chic and simple way to modernize your style. Stripes let people know you are not too flashy or fussy, and that you like keeping it simple and natural. Choose diagonal stripes for a dynamic style which naturally draws your eyes towards it, or vertical stripes to elongate your figure and make you look taller. Don’t think horizontal stripes make you look wider – with the right placement, they are great for accentuating your figure for a full-bodied look. Great on its own or with a simple plain outer, to bring out the print

Florals  

Add color to your wardrobe and express your feminine side with floral prints. Depending on your preference of print style, florals can convey a different side of you! Large floral prints show you are womanly, bold and are not afraid of a little attention! Where as a small floral print can let others see your gentler or more delicate side. With a variety of designs and colors available, the options are endless. If you want to really stand out in the crowd, add a matching colored cardigan to push the color scheme. Or if you want to soften the look, pair with a neutral colored jacket like black.

Geometric prints

Do you want a contemporary look that you can wear to work or on a night out? Then wear a geometric print dress for a pop of contrast that will make you look sharp and draw attention. Tell the world that you are you are chic and modern but you also know how to balance work and play. Set the tone with a sharp contrasting blazer, or you can soften the mood with a simple and neutral-colored top.

Dot print

If you like vintage styles or want to add some whimsy to your look, then the dot print is the one for you. Let others know you can be sweet but fun with dot print. Made iconic by Minnie Mouse, it is another print design that is eye-catching and will bring a dimension of playfulness to your standard plain dress. Versatile and easy to wear to the office or on your day off; you can not go wrong with this print. Wear a comfy jumper or cardigan on top to sweeten your style or play it chic with a blazer or edgy jacket.

2020 is a year of new beginnings and challenges, so start the decade with a clean slate and fresh ideas. Whether you are unsure of your next style, you can always turn to print for inspiration.
