WFH – switching the rules

Comfort is key to working-from-home, just ask the fashion doyenne, Anna Wintour, who has recently discovered what we have always known, you can wear track pants and still look stylish.

The Vogue Editor-in-Chief has long denounced tracksuit bottoms, and she was not alone – Karl Lagefeld famously suggested that ‘Sweat pants are a sign of defeat’.  Working-from-home through the Corvid19 epidemic as turned those concepts on their head.  Track pants can mean serious business.  Dressed up with a jacket and heels and just the right accessories, this look can take you anywhere.

But it’s not all about up to the minute glamour.  Comfort is key to work-from-home outfits with practicality coming in a close second.  Exuding quality and class, Jennifer Aniston nails it beautifully stepping out in this pared back look with simple trainers.  It’s so low key and so now.

Bella Hadid sports another cool look, carefully crafted, but with a degree of nonchalance.  She’s chosen Givenchy topped with a cute leather jacket.  Note the pants drape over her boot just the right amount.  This is the ultimate fusion of comfort and style.

There’s a strong case emerging for the elasticated waist and somewhat baggy leg.   The need to be comfortable has superseded all other fashion decrees.  Out there in the halls of fashion, designers are turning their attention finally to what we really want, and are looking at ways to create a level of comfort and ease into their designs.  Rethinking the rules, Olivia Palermo shows how easy it is to do.

Dialling up the full glamour volume, Dolce & Gabbana have given us a dash of glitz that keeps comfort front and centre.  Bold and beautiful, these pants also come in black if you’re feeling shy but want to strut your stuff.

This current crisis is switching all the rules.  The new normal is set to be comfort. So now, so immediate.
