Dressing From Home

All of those working from home have found them modifying their behaviour to suit their new surroundings. That includes what to wear.

Various experts have advocated a dedicated work place to create some psychological boundaries between being at work and at home.

Another boundary that this bureau endorses for being psychologically at work is to dress for work. No, not a ballgown, but something that shows that you are work-ready and not falling into a downward spiral of despair.

By all means be comfortable, but it’s good to show work colleagues that you actually give a damn about something. What ever you would wear to the office on the casual end of the scale works best.

Windsor Not Required

The casualisation of the workplace is a welcome development. The effect of clothing formality, instead of a sharp professional look, was instead a reluctant and resentful workforce wearing what they did not want.

With the increased freedom to choose, workers are then confronted with the decision of what to wear. Japanese trading house company, Itochu got on the case and partnered with a department store to aid employees to revamp their dress code. That example of best practice also prevents workers going too casual and looking like they are dressing for home renovations.

While some regret this casualwear trend, ditching this suit results in a more relaxed workplace and an opportunity of individuality and self-expression.
