Let's be honest— what we all love from working from home is the built-in excuse to wear comfy pyjamas and loose, threadbare clothes the whole day.
But, putting a little more effort into our appearance with essential styles is just the right fix for those other days. So we brush our hair, throw on some nicer clothes, and fire up the laptop, ready to take on the day.
If you want to take these moments a little further, play with getting into the habit of donning shapewear. These compressive garments can do wonders for keeping your figure in check without intense or hourly exercise. And(!) are suitable for all body types.
