It may be tempting to stay in your PJs all day when working from home but it’s going to do nothing for your productivity. So we’ve rounded up the best loungewear for both men and women that feels as cosy as a onesie but is still totally acceptable should you need to jump on a Zoom call.

From silk pyjama-style tops that will become investment pieces once isolation is over to cosy knits, overshirts to the softest trackies (if it’s business on top no one need know it’s all comfort below screen height), here’s our edit of the best loungewear pieces to shop now.

Women’s Edit

& Other Stories have some of the best cosy pieces on the high street – their knitwear is second to none for prices point and their slub tees offer the perfect cut to tuck into high waisted jeans or trackies. If you’re looking for something to treat yourself to during isolation you can’t go wrong with Anine Bing – there is literally not one thing we wouldn’t wear in her collection) plus, they currently have a 25% off sitewide and their new season collection has just dropped. It would be rude not to.

If you're looking to update your WFH wardrobe but don't want to spend a fortune, check out Oysho. The Spanish brand that's part of the Zara group are a relatively hidden gem here in the UK, but they're worth checking out for loungewear, PJs, basics and, when we can eventually travel again, swimwear. Add a pop of colour to your at-home situation with this super soft, pink hoodie.

As long as it's business on top you can pretty much wear anything on the bottom for a Zoom call - within reason. And few things are cuter than a knitted short/jumper co-ord. As always, Zara have a wealth of options to elevate your at-home style.

We’re in no denial the price tag of Olivia Von Halle’s iconic PJ-style sets are cheap, but one of her cult silk shirts will become a treasured piece for years to come, in isolation or otherwise.

 

Men’s Edit

Keep things smart with soft tailoring – a linen Oxford shirt is the perfect addition to your WFH wardrobe that won’t compromise comfort – and a muted colour palette of beiges, khakis and blues. Brands like Les Girls Les Boys and Sandro are worth investing in but the high street have some great options too, from Zara Men’s to H&M.

The at-home equivalent to a men's business pink shirt, this Sandro sweatshirt is worth the investment. The French brand are bang on the money when it comes to well-cut pieces that will outlive seasons or trends. Wear now with joggers and a tee and post-isolation period it will work well with tailored trousers and a white button-down.

ARKET is like a grown-up H&M and the cuts, fabrics and generally quality reflect the slightly higher price tag. Head there for basics (they do the BEST T-shirts, relaxed tailoring and more statement pieces like this cool, vintage-inspired overshirt and drawstring slacks.
