Loungewear is meant for casual comfort that can take you from a chill weekend hangout at home to popping out for a couple of errands. This versatility makes it a perfect wardrobe for working from home, especially when styled with pieces that help you look tailored while feeling cozy.
What to wear when working from home?
A potential trap of working from home is the assumption that you can stay in your pajamas all day. And sure, aside from any virtual meetings you may have, there might not be much motivation to change into something more structured. But chances are you’ll be far more productive if you do, and loungewear can be the perfect middle ground for a comfortable, yet put together look and feel.
Soft fabrics and styles with built in stretch are the key to cozy. Since most web conferences only show your top half, make leggings and joggers or relaxed denim your go to bottoms. Layering is key for tops, starting with a great bra or bralette (another key difference between loungewear and sleepwear, where the latter may not require lift and support).
Put Together Feel
Even when you don’t have to “suit up” to get to work, giving some thought to your outfit will give you the feeling that you’re prepared and ready to start the day. Whether you have a dedicated office or you’ve cleaned off a corner of your dining table, ensure you feel put together before you sit down (oh and a full cup of coffee helps too!).
Lounge Outfit Ideas
Unlike pajamas which typically come in sets, loungewear designers often build collections of separates that can be paired together to create a variety of looks. True&Co’s loungewear collection starts with True Body underwear in hipster, boyshort or bikini, a seamless foundation for any of the below comfy combinations.
Joggers and tank or t-shirt
A good jogger is a loungewear wardrobe staple as the tailored sweatpant style can be dressed up simply based on your choice of footwear (fuzzy slippers inside, sport sneakers outside). Neutral black or grey allows for pairing with solid color or graphic t-shirts. Or start with a layering tank top and add a wrap sweater or blazer over top for team meetings and client calls.
Leggings and t-shirt
If joggers are a staple loungewear item, leggings are a must-have, daily go-to for many. A great pair of leggings should be seamless and slimming, and again, you can’t go wrong with solid black. Shaping leggings are easy to move in and the thicker waistband prevents digging in, so you can pair with a cropped t-shirt to maximize style and comfort simultaneously.
Bra and boyfriend jeans
A classic high/low pairing, relaxed boyfriend jeans are a perfect match for a bralette, especially a longline style that provides a bit more coverage. True Body’s Lift Longline Bra offsets your comfiest denim and retains its shape and stretch even if you wear it everyday (no judgment here!). Choose a neutral shade in case you need to toss on a button down shirt, or have fun with color like Rouge Red.
Tanktop and Jeans
Looking for something with full torso coverage or just feel like skipping the bra entirely? Opt for a tank, easy for layering and a go-to combination with your favorite jeans. Again, neutrals like black and beige are great for layering, or check out True Body’s Adjustable Strap Tank in Inspired Blue, it just may inspire you.
Our Loungewear Collection
With a constant focus on true comfort, True&Co has curated a loungewear collection that can be the foundation for your work from home wardrobe. Bras and bralettes, adjustable and racerback tanks are perfect pieces to stand on their own or under other loungewear favorites like a robe for home and jacket for a much needed fresh air break. Whether paired with a jogger, legging or denim, the transition is as simple as sliding out of your slippers and into your outdoor shoes, then back again.
Comfortable Bras for Working at Home
Having a stable of go-to bras that you know are the ultimate in comfortable support makes the idea of actually getting dressed to work from home all the more appealing. Wireless pull over styles are our go to, and we think they’ll become yours too:
Smooth as butter fabric and a wide scooped neck that frames the collarbone give this thin strap version of our original Lift bra a barely-there feel. With multiple neutrals for various skin tones as well as vibrant summery colors and patterns, you decide how much or little to show off this style.
An instant classic due to its lower neckline and rounded back, this ballet-inspired style will become a new favorite. Available in over 10 colors and patterns and sized up to a 42DDD, you can’t go wrong with this lifting, smoothing style any day of the week.
Styled more like a sports bra but with the structure to avoid dreaded uniboob, this v-neck, racerback style also touts cooling mesh panels that increase airflow to prevent the equally dreaded boob sweat. Comfortable, breathable support, cooler than ever? Yes, please!
Our Comfortable Bras Collection
Comfort is key while working from home, and the basis for any great loungewear is a comfortable bra. True Body offers a collection of styles ranging from scoop neck, racerback, adjustable strap and even strapless, all with signature lift and support. Mesh and lace add subtle details to your loungewear mainstays because today’s cozy culture doesn’t sacrifice style. Choose your favorites to build your work from home wardrobe starting with essential pieces that will take you all the way through to the weekend.
