LOUNGEWEAR TO ELEVATED EVERYDAY WEAR






Get out of your Netflix and chill loungewear and in to some elevated, investment day wear from Baukjen. You CAN feel comfortable, ready for whatever your day throws at you and look effortlessly ZOOM Ready. I chose this black and green combo to suit my Style Code but they have lots of colour/style variations to suit almost everyone. My clients capsules included many variations of this in 2020 from Baukjen for chic everyday wear and they too LOVED it. I recommend choosing a Striped smart Jogger (there are lots of colours available) and pair with a block colour Coordinating block top from Baukjen (lots available). My Outfit details below.........


MY ELEVATED EVERYDAY WFH OUTFIT:

Marnie Top £47 (Green sold out but Pink and Blue available) / Jay Pant £89 (alternative black and white)


I advise going a size down in tops and ordering your exact size in trousers.

OFFICE DRESS TO EFFORTLESS DRESS





Your typical Pencil dress can feel a little too stiff or overdressed when working from home, even though my beautiful Kettlewell Colours Joanna Dress is ALL stretchy I still don’t reach for it as much as my effortless blue leopard dress. This is a great example of a dress swap that can easily be dressed up or down across occasions and seasons, not to mention being a perfect WFH Outfit layered with a roll neck and tights to stay warm in your home office. I advise opting for a blouse/shirt dress due to its flow of material and freedom of movement for comfort, you can cinch in your waist with a belt. I also recommend opting for a print or block colour, co-ordinate your roll neck with the dress in a neutral colour or Pop to co-ordinate with the print. I choose this to match my personal style code and ticks my colour, body and style code boxes. Outfit details below..........

PRINT SHIRT DRESS ALTERNATIVES I LOVE FROM JOHN LEWIS..........







POWER SUIT TO COMFY POWER DRESSING




Your typical workwear such as a classic black suit and white shirt are a classic capsule workwear essential But you probably aren’t reaching for this combo when it comes to working from home. Luckily, I chose mine with a beautiful ponte stretch fabric that feels comfy enough to sit in all day. However, like most of you I too don’t reach for my suit as much as I usually do during these times (apart from the trousers) and find myself reaching for a more ‘smart casual’ combination as shown in the outfit on the right. To nail the comfy power dressing combo that is smart casual perfection, I recommend investing in some luxury joggers, a high quality cotton tee and an effortless blazer you can dress up or down. Outfit details and links are below........


LEFT: Black Ponte Hampshire 7/8 trousers, £65 Boden / Black Smith Ponte Blazer, £120 Boden


RIGHT: Black luxury joggers, £120 REISS (Alternative) / White Organic cotton Tee, £41 Baukjen (Actual Top) / Elspeth Black and white check Blazer, £131 Baukjen (alternative).





EVERYDAY JEANS OUTFIT TO ZOOM MEETING READY




I love working from home in my stretch high waisted jeans and a chic black roll neck knit, it’s simple, classic and comfortable. If I want to switch up this look to look ZOOM Meeting ready for clients, I simply add a colourful Blazer and make sure my hair and makeup is polished. Voilla! You can recreate this very simple look in many different colour variations, you could make the knit colourful and blazer neutral or vice versa. Outfit details and links are below...........


LEFT AND RIGHT: Black Roll neck knit, £95 REISS (alternative) / Rich Blue Jaimie Jeans (Tall) £39 Topshop (exact) / Dark Pink Single breasted Blazer, £90 REISS (exact)
