One Vogue Editor’s Work From Home Style in 5 Days – Vogue

As we continue our social-distancing pledge, the Vogue staff is working from home for the foreseeable future. This article is part of our This Week on Zoom column in which a Vogue editor shares their WFH outfits from the previous workweek—from the waist up, of course.

When the first shelter-in-place orders were put in place, I was living in a different apartment in downtown Brooklyn, one where my bedroom doubled as an office. Natural light was minimal and the lines between my work and personal life quickly became blurred. It wasn’t until I moved in April to Bed Stuy that I found an apartment I fell in love with. Sunlight poured into the living room and not only were my spirits uplifted, but it helped me embrace a fresh work-from-home style that didn’t consist solely of T-shirts and sweatpants.

I found myself reaching for my tried-and-true favorites (albeit ones that were still ultra comfortable). My favorite Proenza Schouler tie-dye skirt, cozy Jacquemus striped mohair cardigan, or my vintage Miu Miu blazer I snagged from my colleague, Liana’s Schmatta Shrink pop-up shop. These former workplace staples have found a current place in my daily WFH wardrobe. Their vibrant color blocking, pleats texture, and tie-dye swirls have counterbalanced my otherwise black, monochromatic wardrobe. They double as Zoom-appropriate pieces up top, but are also surprisingly comfortable for working at home too. After three months in quarantine, I’ve learned that comfort and confidence reign supreme, so if I can achieve both, then that’s a win right?


Mondays are usually my busiest mornings—full of back to back Zoom meetings. In order to ensure I start my week on the right foot, I always try to actually get dressed on Mondays, which helps put my mind in a working state after a weekend of being unplugged. I love this color-block blouse and skirt set by Proenza Schouler. Its wrinkle-free and comfortable pleats texture makes it an easy work-from-home choice.

I’ve also found that creating a workspace that is both clean and simple has kept my mind uncluttered at a time when it feels we’re being inundated by the news. I used a few favorite coffee table books as a laptop stand and always keep a fresh scented candle nearby. It helps me feel relaxed, especially when the days feel longer than usual.
