5 Obnoxiously Extra WFH Outfits I Wore This Week—Because Why Not?

I'll admit it—despite being a fashion editor, most of my work from home outfits have consisted of matching sweatsuits, oversized tees, and a whole lot of leggings. There's the occasional coffee run where I sometimes manage to put on a pair of jeans, but that's it. And as someone who obviously has a love for fashion, I began to stare at the void that is my closet and decided that enough was enough. For one week, I'd actually put in the effort that I would if I was going into the office, because why not? 

Although I consider myself a maximalist dresser, I still prioritize comfort heavily. The outfits ahead may seem a little too "extra" for a work from home setting, but I promise that all of them still kept me comfortable as I got through a workday (dare I say even giving me a confidence boost?) Now I don't know if I'll be wearing these extra 'fits on a daily occasion, but I do know that I will be reaching for an outfit a step up or two from my loungewear at least once a week to give my clothes (and fashion feeling) some loving during these times.

Ahead, you'll find (and be able to shop) a week of my outfits consisting of furry bucket hats, shearling sweaters, and cozy knits.

On Mondays, all I care about is being cozy, and this hat did exactly that, all while giving me a little special something.

A ribbed dress or set is a perfect way to feel a bit more elevated while still not stepping too much out of your comfort zone. The silk scarf also just adds major Parisian vibes, don't you think?

I wore this 'fit to get my oat milk latte because yes I'm dairy-free but you can still catch me sporting cow print on the regular. A pair of printed pants is an easy way to liven up neutral knitwear.

A little fur moment always takes your basics to the next level. The second I put this cardigan on, I felt like the main character.

I caved towards the end of the week and wore an oversized knit, but this one's got a fair isle print that acts as an immediate mood-booster. Plus, I wore leather pants instead of sweatpants, so that has to count, right?

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
