Feeling cooped up at home? Let's take your work-from-home outfits to the next level

It's day five of the nationwide movement control order—how is everyone holding up? While we believe that oversized T-shirts and shorts are most of our default #WFHfits, one way to stop feeling cooped up and restless while working from home, is to stick to your regular grooming (and dressing) routine. Our suggestion? Jazz things up. March marks the start of the Spring/Summer 2020 season, and while we admit that certain trends may be too much to sport at home, we've found a number of styles that are perfect for your daily commute these two weeks—from the bedroom to you work station to the kitchen and repeat, that is.

 

Below, seven SS20 trends you can start rocking a home, and since you have ample of time, why don't you snap a picture of your look for the 'Gram while you're at it?

 

Slip it like it's hot

Lingerie is one of the top trends this SS20, and the slip dress, in particular, is the perfect piece to wear all day, every day during the MCO period. To amp up the comfort factor, throw on a cosy knit à la Vaquera, or a blazer like Ermanno Scervino for your quick concall meeting.

 

A leg up

We're slipping into shorts any chance we can get in this hot and humid weather, but for SS20, the piece is introduced in an itty-bitty length that lets us flaunt more skin. A matching co-ords (as spotted at Salvatore Ferragamo and Hermès) are chicer than you think, but if you're dipping your toes in the length, take a style cue from Chanel's shorts-over-leggings look.

 

Dare to bare

Forget crop tops—it's all about the bralets this season. The designers' tip on how to wear it tastefully? By pairing it with covered up bottoms such as midi or maxi skirt that still retains its femininity, with a trendy accessory thrown in to complete the ensemble.

 

Island dreamin'

If you can't beat it, you might as well make the best out of it right? Wear your best tropical-print get-up, make yourself a piña colada, put on an island getaway playlist, sit back and relax, and plan for your next (real) beach holiday.

 

In the tube

If the bralet trend is not for you, try giving the tube tops a go. The '90s trend is back and better than ever, given a reiteration in leather (at Givenchy) or in matching co-ords (as seen at Brandon Maxwell and Staud) that are trendy and polished. It's also the perfect top to keep cool in this heat.

 

All tied up

Last but not least, if laundry procrastination is something you're dealing with and if you've ran out of fresh clothes to wear, it's time to put your scarves at home to good use. Try out different ways to tie a scarf as a top (watch a tutorial by Hermès here), or simply cinch a smaller piece around your shirt collar to amp up your conference call outfit.
