Anyone else struggling hard with the comfort difference between WFH clothes and office clothes? I'm finding it's severely impacting my mood on office days. Work clothes are just 1000x more uncomfortable than sweatpants at home. Also, no shoes! I cant find work shoes that don't hurt my feet that i can wear with regular office clothes or a suit.

While I realize that my office is more casual than most, I find that I am most comfortable in dresses. Bonus is that they are one piece and you don’t need to worry about putting pieces together! I stick to machine washable, just above the knee dresses and find that works for me. I also exclusively wear Birkenstock’s under my desk and just change as needed. Not a perfect system but it helps me get through the day.

I need to give these a try. I bought Betabrand a few times recently and while I liked the fit, 2 out of 3 pants they sent me had MASSIVE seam issues. The quality is clearly for shit.

I never wear shoes at the office, TBH, even pre pandemic. Like I will outside my personal office, but if I’m just sitting in there, who knows/cares if I’m wearing shoes??

Reiterating dresses. Shift dresses have made a resurgence during COVID, and one in a neutral/conservative color (like black or grey) with a conservative neckline (boat neck, high scoop, high V) are comfy enough to sleep in. EShakti has a bunch of those right now.

Yes. Especially since my PGL refuses to let us wear more casual clothes.

Stretchy or loose fitting dresses can be super comfortable. Also, Rothy’s have been a lifesaver for my feet. They are simple and sleek and you can definitely wear them with a suit.

Oh that’s a bummer! I got a blister from them at first, but after about a week it went away and I’m good.
