Dressing up or dressing gown?
Some mornings I get up and go straight to the computer. Today, for example, I'm sitting here in a white towelling dressing gown, knee socks and a pair of old Birkenstocks. A portfolio career means working from home a couple of days a week, so half the time I exude casual glamour, the other half, I'm undressed. And in the summer months, I go feral. When sifting through/sending emails and blogging, I'm quite happy in my bath robe. Though if I'm working, I'll make more of an effort. Call it off-duty chic. Like Madonna going to the gym but without the crappy logo t-shirt. Which is why I'm liking the pyjama trend. Slouchy clothes that feel elegant and relaxed are perfect for computer work, lounging and leaving the house in. Like Tommy Hilfiger's matching silk pyjama top and bottoms, and these J.W. Anderson pants I spotted at London Fashion Week - I'd wear them with the woolly jumper:
Here they are on the catwalk:
What do you wear when you're working from home? What's your house style?
