Capsule wardrobe for working from home

My five day winter work from home uniform (plus a black blazer at the back)
  • Monday: White sweater with black leggings because it’s cosy yet classic, which helps me through the Monday grey morning blues.
  • Tuesday: Black V-neck with grey cardigan and black leggings. Tuesday is one of my longest working days, and the layers give me flexibility if it gets warm or cold.
  • Wednesday: Charcoal pullover with black leggings.
  • Thursday: Dark green V-neck with black cardigan and black leggings (similar logic to Tuesday).
  • Friday: Relaxed light colour pullover with black leggings and optional black jacket. This look is more relaxed as it is nearly the weekend and I don’t have too many meetings, but for the couple I do have (which happen to be with stakeholders), I can pull on my trusty black blazer to look the part.
