During these times of self-isolation as we do our part under the current global climate, working home has become the new norm and comfort is priority from head to toe. What does this mean for your style? Structured pieces remain in the closet and cozy options are on rotation. Heels are out and comfortable socks and boots are in. Minimal effort outfits trump hours spent at the closet.
Luckily, there are ways to dress up your WFH outfits that don’t require too much effort. Use statement jewelry to upgrade a look, stay monochromatic to look streamlined, or our personal favorite: add a striking pair of fine handmade leather boots to take your style (and your mood) up a notch. Whether it’s a pair of comfy and kick ass military style ankle boots, chic and classic chelsea boots, or good ol’ cowboy boots, adding statement kicks to your WFH-fits will have you feeling inspired and ready to take on the day of Zoom meetings, FaceTime catch ups, or walks around the neighborhood. From the living room, to the kitchen, to the dining room, these boots will take you places.
Below are 5 no fuss ways you can rock your work from home style with boots, because even though it feels like the world has come to a hold, fashion never stops and we’re here to keep your relaxed style cool and your feet comfortably chic.
1. Matching Sweatsuit
Time for the classic suit to step aside, there’s a new suit on the scene, and it’s the sweatsuit! A sweatsuit is a sure-fire way to stay stylish and comfortable while working from home. And tucking sweats into military style boots gives your WFH outfit that casual-cool edge. Take it from the style experts at the Zoe Report; “instead of tucking structured trousers into knee-high boots, take the cozy route by tucking your chunky boots into loose sweats.” Bonus points: keep your sweatsuit monochromatic to look and feel more coordinated.
