What to Wear To Your Home Office

Working from home offers many perks, one of which is not having to wear a restrictive suit to work. At-home entrepreneurs love to joke that we can go to work in our pajamas. As true and fun as it may be, even those who work from home have to worry about formal business attire.

When you are making money from your bedroom, why anyone would need business outfits, you may ask. It’s highly worthwhile to invest in business formal and business casual attire just in case you have to meet a client or a potential investor. You never know when the need might arise. But when you do need to don a blazer and a formal skirt, you definitely don’t want to go last minute shopping for these.

Choosing a business outfit is not easy. That’s why you need to shop for these leisurely ahead of time. Here are several tips for how at-home workers can assemble professional outfits:

Get Both Business Casual and Formal Attire

Business casual is typically the norm these days for most workplaces. However, you may need formal business attire for special occasions. For example, if you have to meet with an investor, a business partner, or a very important client, it’s best to don formal business attire for the occasion.

Just to be on the safe side, invest in both business casual and formal outfits. You definitely don’t need to buy as many as office workers do. At least buy two outfits in each style. A formal business outfit would be suitable for business events, like conferences, you may have to physically attend.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

Your shoe rack is probably filled with slip-ons, crocs, and other very comfortable footwear to wear in and around the house. But even the best Timberlands in Canada won’t do if you find yourself driving to a business meeting. Therefore, it’s important to invest in footwear that you can put on to a professional occasion.

Buying shoes doesn’t have to be a great endeavor. If you are on a budget, you can consider options like Merrell shoes on sale right here in Canada. You won’t need to buy more than two pairs, unless business meetings happen several times a month. Buy shoes early, as these items, like outfits, should never be last minute buys. If you rush to buy shoes, you may end up with ill-fitting choices. So do your footwear shopping early on.

Choose the Right Colors

Choosing the type of outfit you want to keep in your wardrobe for outside business events is easy. But choosing the right colors is another front. Don’t assume buying professional outfits is the same as purchasing attire for formal private occasions. Wearing shiny blouses with vivid patterns may send the wrong message.

It’s best to choose soft hued tops, and dark toned trousers and outerwear for professional outfits. Colors like black, white, grey, and dark blue are always great choices for business outfits. While you can choose brighter shades, just make sure the hue would not make you stand out in the wrong way.

Use the above advice to assemble yourself two or three outfits for business occasions where you might have to be physically present. Most people working from home don’t think about this. Remember, if a publisher wants to discuss a book based on your blog, you will definitely appreciate having a suitable outfit in your closet for the meeting.
