Obviously, business as usual has become, well… quite unusual in the current climate. With most of us working from our own homes (i.e., sofas) and generally having waaaay more time to ourselves, it means our daily ‘fits have also changed a bit.
It might not seem important right now, but, figuring out what to wear while working from home can play a huge part in your daily routine. As appealing as it may be to chill all day in your PJs, that just does more to blur our already confusing isolation calendars. So, we caught up with some ASOS staff to see what they’re wearing to WFH.
ASOSERS DO WORKING-FROM-HOME LOOKS

I like to make sure my working from home style is comfy, easy and cosy. Extra-cosy, when possible. I’ll be in joggers or shorts, a top, maybe a hoodie in the morning if it’s still a little cold. I'll definitely have either my hood up, a hat on, or my durag for the remainder of these Quarantimes, because I haven’t had a trim in like, a month! I don't want anyone seeing that on any team calls!

All-black is my go-to for a WFH ‘fit. I like to dress as if I’m still going out, but comfort is 🔑 I’ve paired an oversized hoodie with a pair of balloon-fit jeans and my New Balance 574s (for ultimate comfort – plus, I still feel like I'm actually dressing for work). I’m rarely seen without a beanie and nobody's seeing my bedhead during the morning video calls! I’ve accessorised with a mandatory cup of coffee and chunky silver rings.
Today I've thrown a classic 'business up top, party down below' ensemble. As far as I'm concerned, it's the ideal conference-call style solution; I need to look sharp on webcam but can't be sweating away in trousers or jeans unnecessarily. The real hack here is that these shorts are actually ASOS DESIGN swimwear, so when public spaces reopen I'm ready to strip off and run for the pool.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: ‘you haven’t tried very hard’ and yeah, you might be right. There is method in my simple, simple, look though; those trousers are actually joggers-that-look-like-trousers (drawstring waist/trouser cuffs) so, I can live in comfort and still look like a fully functioning adult at work. Spring indoor footwear? Gotta be sliders. Am I trying to bring back that short-lived slider-and-socks moment from last year, or, did I put them on by accident in the midst of an early-morning daze? Let's see if it takes off or not...
