Shout out to all the people working from home. Whoop Whoop! What does YOUR dress code look like?
If you are one of those people who still gets dressed up in work clothes to be more productive at home, Good For You. You do you, boo.
I’ll just sit here in my raggedy t-shirt, unshaved legs, ripped up pajama pants, no makeup, blanket cape, and bare feet.
There are two theories of thought here…
1) Getting dressed as normal will be less stressful for you, and you will be more productive. Routines are good, and getting dressed like normal is part of the routine.
Then there is theory 2, which I obviously subscribe to…
2) Wearing whatever you want makes you more productive, because you are more comfortable.
In all reality, I don’t know which scenario is better. I do know that these are dang stressful times, being quarantined and all, and I want to dress however is going to bring me a little peace.
If that works for us and we can be in that place to put our energy into work the way it needs to be — to do the job — there’s nothing wrong with that at all.Erik Fisher, Psychologist, to CNN News
Actually, work attire has gotten far more casual over the years. Places where you used to see suits and ties, you now see khaki pants and polo shirts. I would like to personally thank the millennials for their contribution to this lax work attire.
But, we aren’t working at an office right now, so it’s pretty much anything goes, and some of us are taking FULL advantage of this rule of clothing chaos.
Enjoy it while you can, because all too soon it will be back to business attire and casual Fridays!
Check out how you can work from home, and not go insane in the process! Ha!
