What to wear when working from home

What to wear when working from home

With life mostly happening from home nowadays, meetings no longer take place in the office, but via Skype or Zoom. And while it’s very tempting to never change out of your comfy pajamas, walking around in your lounge-wear all day will not bring out the best in your productivity-wise. So how exactly do you make the most of this WFH-period?
