27 Chic Work-From-Home Tops For Your Next Video Call

No one has to know you're wearing sweatpants.

There are plenty of challenges that come with working from home, but getting dressed in the morning is officially at the top of our list. Five weeks into self-isolation, slipping right out of our pyjamas and into our daytime sweatsuits is starting to feel a little too comfortable. We don’t know about you, but we’re starting to miss buttons and clothes that aren’t made from soft cotton and fleece. 

Now that most of our daily interactions with coworkers, friends and family take place from the waist up via video, cute tops have become a must-have. They’re easy to throw on with just about anything, and they keep you looking polished enough to jump on a video call with your boss at a moment’s notice. Eye-catching shirts and blouses with puffy sleeves, ruffles, delicate fabrics and bold patterns are sure to steal the show. And the best part? No one has to know you’re wearing sweatpants (though we guarantee they are too).
