How To Dress Smart When Working From Home

There is a huge difference on  working from home and working in an office based job. If you are working from home there would be no eyes to watch your work and no bossy people around. You don't have to go through the hassle of being under some "dress-codes." You can actually just wear the clothes you wore from your sleep, but, don't you know that dressing smartly is actually important even though you are just working from home?

Say you are currently working right now, and then there is this IM from your boss that popped up saying you will have a virtual meeting within two minutes. No, you don't have time to fix yourself anymore. That is why you need to dress smartly for your working hours. No, you don't have to wear some formal office clothes. Wearing glamorous office attires will look unnatural if you are just working from home. A shirt with collar and formal cut jeans will do. Your hair should be in place. Wearing an eyeglasses would also give you that smartypants look. If you are a woman, then a little make up should help you look more lively. As simple as that and you will find yourself presentable enough for any “emergency meeting”. Even if you are working from home, you can still have that ambiance of professionalism.

 I would like to know about your ward robe as a WAHM. Share me your ideas, tips and what you do when you start your day of work from home. I hope to read your tips. I would like to compile everything and put up an article about your ideas. When you write your comment, include your link too. As my way of saying thank you for sharing your tips, I will include each of your links on the compilation article I will be making.
