When working from home, it is important to dress in comfortable, appropriate clothing that allows you to focus on your work. Here are some tips for choosing what to wear when working from home.

Consider your work environment: If you have a home office or dedicated workspace, you may want to dress as you would for a traditional office setting. If you are working from a shared space or a more casual setting, you may have more flexibility in your clothing choices.

Dress for comfort: Since you will be at home, it is important to choose clothing that is comfortable and allows for ease of movement. Avoid clothing that is too tight, scratchy, or constricting.

Consider videoconferencing: If you will be participating in videoconferences or virtual meetings, be sure to dress appropriately. Avoid wearing clothing with busy patterns or bright colors, as these can be distracting on camera.

Keep it professional: Even if you are working from home, it is important to maintain a professional appearance. Avoid wearing pajamas or other casual clothing that you would not wear in a traditional office setting.

Make sure you are comfortable: Above all, the most important thing is to choose clothing that allows you to feel comfortable and productive while working from home.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant changes in work dress codes, with many people opting to work from home in comfortable clothing. A poll from market research group found that only 10% of people get dressed for working from home at the beginning of the day, changing into more comfortable clothing later.

One item of clothing that has become essential for remote work is the "Fake Dress Shirt," which is kept on the back of a desk chair and quickly put on for video conferences. A fake dress shirt is a shirt that is designed to look like a high-quality, well-made dress shirt.  A poll by LinkedIn found that 42% of camera-ready home workers own a Fake Dress Shirt.

The Fake Dress Shirt allows people to maintain a professional image on camera without having to fully dress in office attire when working from home. Dressing in a formal manner helps convey respect to others and can even improve productivity. A study found that employees were more productive when casual dress was permitted, and the fake dress shirt supports this idea.
