Moving to Los Angeles two years ago, my first experience came home on a regular basis (well, unless your homework counts), and I became a little obsessed with a stylish work-from-home wardrobe. I started with a number of comfortable and modern brands, and every time I met someone else who worked at a distance, I immediately wanted to know what they were wearing. I also thought a lot about the Kardashians: with their high waist sweat and full of glam, born simply from the fact that their day job consisted of filming while hanging out in their Calabasas mansions between personal workouts and trips to Epione. did they invent the ideal aesthetic that looks beautiful at home?
I wander off. But when I talked to other WFH people, most of them made dresses as an important step in their morning routines, which makes sense. For most, changing out of pajamas is helpful to get into a productive mindset and not feel like a complete slab, but to be extraordinarily attractive than in & # 39; to go to an actual office. So what is the happy medium? To figure this out, I asked nine friends and acquaintances, who all work in fashion and dress very well when I see them in the world (or in the Instagram world), which they wear to be professional, motivated, comfortable and chic to feel at home. . Read on for their answers and find out some of their choices below.
Chelsea Mak, Founder / Designer, Chelsea Mak
"When I expect guests, which are almost every day, I usually wear the Chelsea Mak Anita Blazer in the Navy wearing a skirt or vintage pants with whatever Chelsea prototype I'm currently wearing. I is a long pants girl so I always have a good turn-around, usually vintage. I love a good Jil Sander & # 39; 90 or & # 39; 80s JSL dress pants ; over the years I have collected a lot of local vintage places like Sleeper and Passenger.
When I don't wear Chelsea Mak at home, I wear Entireworld – one because I like the brand a lot and have a lot of friends who work there, and two, because it's comfortable and all the colors are so good. There really is nothing else about it. & # 39;

"I work from home a few days a week when I have to hold meetings or bring resources closer to home. I know there is a certain kind of person who has to apply lipstick and put on proper clothes to get into the mindset, but when I'm at home, I feel like I'm mocking myself when I'm not comfortable, for my purposes, my WFH appearance is a slight update from my school days. If I have video conference calls, I will & # 39; usually wear & # 39; a massive T-shirt that looks like a minimal top on a webcam but feels different & # 39; a nightgown.
But once I'm back with myself, I usually pull on what I call & # 39; a & # 39; focus hoodie & # 39; to which I can chew or hide, depending on how painful the writing process is. When things get serious, I put on the bonnet, pull on the strings, and put headphones over it to look like an agoraphobic DJ. I also always wear a pair of shoes alone, because the feeling of barefoot makes me also relaxed. Is this look cute? Absolutely not. But it works and helps me blow through what I need to do. And if I have to leave the house, I can easily offer it by putting on & # 39; pants (because I love the idea that I & # 39; ll wear pants in my house). & # 39;

(Disclosure: Coscarelli occasionally writes for this site.)
& # 39; Ease is the name of the game, but since I've always published on IG, I have to be pretty cute from home as well. I'm in love with the basic organic cotton base of Arq, especially the crop tank and high waisted panties. And since it's suddenly winter, I'll top it with either sweat (LHLL is the most comfortable!) Or a fleece (I love Outdoor Voices.) "
Lisa Marie Fernandez, Founder / Designer, Lisa Marie Fernandez
"When I'm home in Los Angeles, I want to be comfortable. But my comfort is a bit bohemian and elevated. Even though I'm home, I still want to look and feel good to me. Plus, it's the space where LMF consists of: Luxury lifestyle There is no distinction between me and my brand, I am my brand and live that lifestyle, especially at home, I work at the pool outside on the dining room table, and I am always barefoot. my many brand name gowns, I mainly wear LMF in the house and around Malibu, and I have & # 39; bikini under my bathrobe because I try to swim every day. & # 39;
Emme Parsons, Founder / Designer, Emme Parsons
"I work from home and have noticed that I tend to be most productive when I wake up and get ready for the day before immediately jumping into emails. When I work at home, it's important to be comfortable but still be composed because it helps me maintain a professional mindset, and I never know when a meeting will arrive at the last minute, so I need to be ready at the door to run out. & # 39;
Sara Tan, Senior West Coast fashion and beauty editor, is printing
& # 39; I've been working at a distance for six years, so I went through different phases of WFH clothing. Initially, I would stay in my exercise clothes, or worse, pajamas, and realize that it didn't make me feel wonderful. – I felt like a slab and as a result was not as motivated to work. Now I have figured out that I wear something stylish and present, but also comfortably work best for me. This is especially important because I & # 39; ve several times a day from appointments to meetings and back home to my laptop.
I am so grateful that athleisure stays fashionable because I am a big fan of matching sets, especially of the sweat or knit variety. I'm also a big fan of jeans and a soft white tea. That's what I'm wearing now as I type it. It never fails me. In summary: something that is relaxed but presentable so I can go out for a coffee section and still feel cute – but also something that I can comfortably sit on the couch with my laptop. "

"My aesthetic at home can only be described as glorified pajamas. Crewnecks, sweatpants, oversized vintage tees – you name it, I wear it. I always strive to be as comfortable as possible, especially when I'm in my own home . "
Stephanie Beard, founder / designer of Esby Apparel
& # 39; Well, first of all, I need comfort, but I never want to look sloppy, even when I'm at home, or taking the puppies for a walk. I always get the best job when I'm dressed for the event, so I'll usually throw in some vintage Levi's with either Jane Tee from Esby, when Austin is busy, or with Austin our Nina cotton turtle. It looks so chic, but feels just as comfortable as in a sweater. "

Melissa Chataigne, TV host and stylist
"Working from home has become a way of life and dressing up in an outfit that makes me feel confident to crush my day with personal style calls after visits to the showroom. Preparing myself for work and wanting to change my PJ's will change my thinking to conquer the day. I want to feel confident and fashionable, so I'm always on brand. I wear either jeans and a button-down blouse. or a relaxed kimono set for a relaxed day.
I like the raw hem. Good American jeans. It is easy to put on and stretch your computer for long hours. Red is my power color and loves everything Baacal. It's more comfortable Friday. I'll rock this PJ set from Lucy Paris at home with a cami and style it for a quick encounter with white sneakers. This is my high style uniform. "
