What Does Your WFH Style Say About You?

In a suit for no reason? Secretly pant-less on Zoom? We all have our own approach to WFH style.

By Madeleine Kim

How would you dress for work if no one was watching? Over the past few weeks, we’ve learned that working from home has a tendency to reveal our true colors, and we’re here for it. Which WFH personality are you?

The One Who Looks Normal, but Isn’t Wearing Pants

Some people need to get fully dressed to feel productive, but you’re not that girl. In fact, if you didn’t have to Zoom with your boss today, you’d still be in your cashmere robe. When all-day PJs aren’t an option, you embrace mullet dressing in its purest form—business on top, nothing on bottom—which was going just swimmingly until you stood up to refill your water mid-meeting.

The One Who Keeps Integrating Weird Accessories

It started innocently enough. You thought you’d “spice things up” on Zoom by drinking your iced coffee with that twisty straw you got at a bachelorette party ages ago. Things escalated from there, and you now find yourself hitting “add to cart” on a new pair of cat ears to match your favorite jardigan.

The One Who Sticks to a Uniform

You’re a creature of habit—you love the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” On the first day of quarantine, you chose a comfortable top in a rich color that looks great on Zoom—and you’ve worn it every day since. What? It’s odor-resistant!

The One Who Still Looks Like She’s Running a Board Meeting

You’ve always been a boss, and you’ve always dressed the part. Why stop now? You don’t feel like yourself unless you’re in a put-together power outfit, but you also know how to embrace the WFH spirit by keeping it comfy. A stretchy, knit suit that won’t wrinkle is just the thing for a quick catnap on the couch in between Zooms.

The One Who Always Has a Pet in Her Lap

Your favorite thing about working from home? You can show off your fur baby to anyone lucky enough to find themselves on a Zoom with you. To avoid blowing through your lint roller, you opt for machine-washable, light-colored clothing that, with the help of some poor webcam resolution, makes your outfit appear fur-free.

The One Who’s Definitely in the Middle of Baking Banana Bread

You always knew you could become the next Alison Roman, if only you had the time. Your go-to WFH outfits are both machine-washable and photoshoot ready, just in case you decide to document your latest culinary masterpiece. If you have video turned off during a Zoom meeting, it’s not because you haven’t showered—it’s because you’re discreetly folding chocolate chunks into some delightful batter.
