Hilarious Work From Home Outfits
Home is not only where the heart is. It's also where a lot of the work is. With more people working from home, what is appropriate business attire?
Pajamas are not the only acceptable home office uniform. There are many different ways you can dress for success while working from home.
Here's what some people are rocking. These clothes will make you laugh, think or wonder WTH.
100. Robed and Ready
Fun fact: The robe is the work from home trenchcoat.
While some might think employees who work remotely have more freedom to slack off, studies show the opposite is true. Due to increased trust from their bosses, those working from home spend more hours working than a traditional 40-hour workweek.
Because they can make those hours around their other obligations.
99. Business Casual
Fun fact: You can’t go wrong with a dressy legging and solid top. Throwing a blazer over just about anything fancies it up enough for a meeting.
And while no one will see them, those power heels may give you the edge of motivation you need to make the sale.
98. Somebunny’s Ready to Work
Fun fact: For those who are certain they will have exactly zero human interactions or those who just plain give that few cares, this head-to-toe pink bunny onesie promises to keep your tail warm and your body snug as you work from your bed.
Statistics show that about half of the global workforce will be remote workers by the end of 2020, so get those bunny suits before they’re sold out.
Fun fact: When your coworkers are a caped superhero and a masked villain gecko, you need to be dressed for anything.
This mom sports a striped cotton pocket tee so she is able to look professional from the neck up for teleconferences, but she may have on basketball shorts and track shoes so she is ready to run.
We’ll never know.
96. Slippered Supervisor
Fun fact: Whether you are the intern or the CEO, everybody is more comfortable when they are rocking a great pair of slippers, and comfort can equal productivity.
Reports show that employees who work remotely are far more productive than those reporting to work in an office or warehouse.
No doubt, it’s because of the slippers.
95. I Like Big Bows and I Cannot Lie
Fun fact: Even if you stay home to hit the office, you can still dress to impress.
Throw on a hat and oversized shades to work outside, and whatever you do, do not forget a bow the size of the upper half of your body to adorn your neck.
It tells your clients and coworkers, "She means business."
94. Work Wear
Fun fact: Just when you thought purple didn’t match plaid, you throw caution to the wind and add in a geometric printed legging and rain boots to tell the world, "That’s right, Susan! I do what I want." And you also get the job done.
On top of that, working from home is proven to be good for the environment due to having fewer people driving to and from the office, so if people mistake your flannel for anything but environmentalist, you can set them straight.
93. Comfy Casual
Fun fact: Most women will admit that cotton maxi dresses are summer’s leggings.
A comfortable fancy nightgown of sorts, the maxi dress can be dressed up or down, and throwing a denim jacket over it can make you work-ready in a flash.
92. Focused Fun
Fun fact: Whether you are working solo from home or your sister is in town and insists her inverted yoga poses work best when she’s up on blocks directly beside your work stool, you can’t go wrong with a black hamburger tee and some plaid pants from the Sort-of-Scottish collection.
Studies show the higher the work position, the more time that seems to be required outside the office — however, that is likely the higher your employment title and not, in fact, how high you can elevate your inverted tree pose.
91. Big Dreams, Mini Me
Fun fact: Sometimes a meeting or your mood call for a nice shirt and bow tie combo to get you motivated to make the sale, close the deal, or push for your demands in a negotiation, even from home.
Avoiding the commute is one of the top listed benefits remote workers give for their preference of working from home. Having flexible hours and the time to show your mini-me how to be a boss, makes all the difference.
90. Big Hat, Who Dis
Fun fact: Bad hair day? No problem! Dress up your sundress and scarf combo with some chunky bangle bracelets and the biggest, brightest hat you can find. No one will even know if you have hair under there.
Twenty-five percent of remote workers report being willing to accept a reduction in salary if it meant them getting to stay at home.
It is doubtful the number would be as high if it would cost them an oversized orange hat.
89. Solitary Struggles
Fun fact: When your coworkers are a plethora of cats, you can wear anything you want to your cubicle, and no one will say a word.
Surprisingly, reports prove that teleworkers spend an average of only an hour a day on social media.

88. What You Can’t See is Puuurrrfect
Fun fact: Your supervisors will be wowed by your black cardigan and sensible top during today’s Zoom call while they remain none-the-wiser about the soccer pants and big cat sock and slides combo that you are hiding under your desk.

This look is power everything — from the severe bob haircut down to the kimono top and black power pants that could be tucked into boots or paired with a sock and open-toed combe never before seen because, when you’re wearing power everything, you’re in charge.
86. Leopard Laborer
Fun fact: When it's laundry day and you still have to log hours, working from home makes this wardrobe possible.
On a teleconference with your boss? No problem! He can’t see you rocking your sports bra and leopard Spanx because you’re at home.
Employers who offer at least part-time options to work from home save a reported $44 billion per year. Imagine the number of animal print bottoms you could buy with that kind of cash!
85. Young and in Charge
Fun fact: Here we have a classy T-shirt and suit jacket combo made famous by millennials everywhere.
However, you aren’t bringing the party until you slap a button on your breast pocket and send a picture to your office with what they all hope is iced tea in your glass.

These wallpaper chinos, circa 1971, and matching lamp and pottery combos cannot be duplicated.

Ready for a secret meeting in a cigar shop or an executive golf outing, this outfit means business.
Sixty-eight percent of millennial workers report specifically seeking employment with a work-from-home option, and we can only assume it is because they just inherited some of these suede slips.

75. It’s Getting Hot Out Here
Fun fact: While many report lower stress levels related to work when they are able to telecommute, that doesn’t mean the pressure is always off.

Clearly, for some, the heat it on.

It keeps your locks out of your face while remaining more professional than a basic bun or ponytail.
Studies confirm that the number three most professional hairstyle for women is a braid.

57. The Functional Funeral
Fun fact: An all-black wardrobe is where the hopes and dreams of millions of women go to die. While basic black and white (and every other shade — we see you gray and heather charcoal) can convey professionalism and less distractibility, they also need to have other purposes.
For work-from-home employees, pairing a black cardigan with a white mock turtleneck seems safe, but the punch of a gray maxi dress completes the look while saying, "I know I look profesh, but I also feel like I’m still wearing pajamas, so watch out!"
56. Short Seat, Short Pants
Fun fact: Employees working remotely aren’t short on flexible hours or business perks, but some people dressing their best may come up short in the pants length department.

Flexibility is reported as the greatest benefit an employer can offer. When outfits, office space, and online meetings are all made flexible, employees feel more motivated to produce.
So hit the mat and take your laptop along with your brightest neon socks to show the competition that you’re here to make moves — yoga and otherwise.

When it is paired with a hardback book for posture practice while you hammer out a project you have elevated from basic.

Domestic dads, gather the khaki shorts and old college tees and get down to business — or your baby’s playdate. You’ll be ready for both.
38. Velveteen Versatility
Fun fact: Basic black point pants are a key component to any business casual closet. When you top it with a white cami and button-down embroidered with floral, you can dress those pants up or down. The finishing touch of a first edition suede bunny slipper takes the entire ensemble to a new level.

These fresh to the work crew candidates might trade vacation days, but we doubt they’d trade such fresh footwear and the velour Velveteen.
37. Spotted and Sassy
