Workwear For Wherever You Work

February 24, 2021


Erin Schrader

At Living In Yellow, we’ve loved being a resource for helping you feel confident in your workwear wardrobe through the years [as well as your robe wardrobe, because balance]. This has been a lot of dress pants, dressier tops, comfortable heels, as well as a dress and blazer or two! Now here we are, a few months into 2021, and things look a whole lot different for a lot of us! Due to changes that the pandemic has brought on, many companies are working from home a year later, while some are trickling back into the office, and others never skipped a beat for in-person office days! So today, we’re bringing you workwear ideas, for wherever you work! The couch, a casual office environment, or full on business mode… and everything in between!

Work From Home

Core 10 Spectrum High Waist Yoga Full-Length Legging [true to size, wearing small] // Loft Ribbed Open Cardigan [true to size, wearing in small] // JCrew Factory Fine-rib V-Neck Tee [runs small, wearing small] // Express Cozy Faux Fur Slippers // Blue Light Blocking Glasses

The couch, the bed, or the back deck? Where will you be working today? The world is your oyster if you’re working from home and no one is seeing you! Get out of your nighttime jammies and put on your daytime jammies – AKA leggings, tee, cardigan, and slippers! Just don’t forget to switch back to your nighttime jammies after 5PM!

Zoom Call

Liverpool L.A. x Living in Yellow Becca Double Breasted Blazer [size down one, wearing in XS] // Liverpool L.A. x Living in Yellow High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans [size down if in between – wearing size 2 Petite] // Adidas Advantage Sneaker // Blue Light Blocking Glasses

You’re working from home, but you’re on video calls throughout the day? The key ingredients for this setup include items that are comfortable while still looking professional, which is why I had to turn to Liverpool for jeans and a blazer! I cannot get enough of these two pieces – the amount of stretch is so insane, you’ll forget you’re wearing “real” clothes! If you want to swap out the sneakers for slippers, I won’t tell!

Casual Friday

Loft Ribbed Open Cardigan [true to size, wearing in small] // Loft Leopard Print V-Neck Shell [true to size, wearing in small] // Kut from the Kloth Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans // Marc Fisher Eilise Bootie

If you’re finding yourself at the office once or twice a week [or maybe just looking for something for casual Fridays], grab that cardigan you wore on your WFH day and pair it with jeans, booties, and a ca-uuuuute leopard tank, and you’re ready to hit the break room!

Business Casual

JCrew Factory Printed Ruffleneck Button-Up Top [true to size, wearing in small] // Express Mid Rise Columnist Slim Pant [true to size, wearing size 4 Short] // Sam Edelman Hazel Pointed Toe Pump [size up .5] // Ryder Hoop Earrings In Gold

For many offices, things haven’t skipped a beat! Y0u’ve been going all-day, every day [with lots of added hand sanitizer and a face mask]. Here’s a fun business casual for y-o-u! This used to be my day-to-day look when I worked at the credit union – dress pants, comfy heels, and a fun top! And seriously, couldn’t we all use more fun tops like this in our lives right now? Bring on Spring!

Business Professional

Express Soft & Sleek Peak Lapel One Button Blazer [true to size, wearing size 4] // JCrew Factory Printed Ruffleneck Button-Up Top [true to size, wearing in small] // Express Mid Rise Columnist Slim Pant [true to size, wearing size 4 Short] // Sam Edelman Hazel Pointed Toe Pump [size up .5] // Ryder Hoop Earrings In Gold

Last, but most definitely not least, I bring you the business professional look. Take your business casual attire and throw on the matching blazer for special meetings, or any scenario where you need to be a little more polished! Bring on the boardroom!
