Affordable Casual and Work-From-Home Outfit Ideas

Affordable Casual and Work-From-Home Outfit Ideas

If you are lucky enough to be able to work-from-home during the Covid Pandemic, or if your working arrangements have always been to work from home, you know that the struggle to get out of the pajama pants, is real :). Yes, I do also speak from a personal experience. I will have to admit that there have been so many days that I have spent the entire day in my pajamas.

I have noticed though that I am so much more productive when I actually spend a little bit of time and get dressed. It makes me feel better about myself and I feel ready for the day. I am a true believer in making my bed every morning, so this is kind of the same. It starts the day off right. Plus, feeling cute and styling while still comfortable is important to me. 

Here are five cute outfit ideas for working from home. I hope these ideas inspire you. Many of these pieces are basics that you can mix and match with other pieces you already have in your closet and create different looks. Click on the images below to shop.

Outfit idea #1:

Without a doubt, the best thing in the world (after chocolate and a cappuccino) is super comfortable and versatile leggings. They always fit :), and are very comfortable, and are my go-to no matter the season. Leggings can easily be dressed up or down. Pair them with a basic striped tee, like the one below, and a nice slouchy cardigan and you are good to conquer the world!

Outfit idea #2:

A two-piece lounge set is honestly one of my favorite go-to casual outfits. So easy and so comfy. There is no guessing of what goes with what, grab the matching bottom and top and you are all set for the day.

Here are a couple of long pants options, as well as some with shorts.

Outfit idea #3:

Remember those comfortable and versatile leggings, let’s use them again but style them slightly differently. I love a simple basic white tee or tank top and throw on a cozy flannel and some fuzzy socks or slippers (or your favorite tennis shoes or slides)


Outfit idea #4:

Here is a casual and cozy jeans outfit idea for those of us who love jeans. Pair any jeans with a comfy sweater or a pullover and you are good to go


Outfit idea #5:

Here is a jogger that is also a very versatile basic piece to have in your closet. It can truly be paired with any top for a cute and cozy work-from-home outfit.

All those outfit ideas are also perfect if you need to run to the store, drop-off or pick-up kiddos, grab the mail, or run out for a quick coffee break. They are versatile, and comfortable yet chic and put together. I hope these outfits inspire you and help you feel great and ready to concur the world!

But hey listen, I know that there inevitably will be days when pajamas will be the way to go. For those rainy, cloudy, and “I want to stay in my PJ’s days”, here are some of my favorite pajama sets.

I hope you have a wonderful and productive day!
