三级成人视频Over the past week or so, the meaning of the term “workwear” has been transformed.
With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing millions of us to work from home, the sartorial conversation has shifted from whether it’s OK to wear trainers in the office (it is, btw), to what looks good on a conference call.
Of course, one perk of working from home means that we can be more comfortable. Heels and tailored separates have given way to luxurious silk pyjamas and loungewear. At a time when many fashion businesses are struggling, some of those strong in this category, like Jessica Russell Flint who creates beautiful cashmere and silk loungewear, have even experienced a small boost in sales as we all reconsider our day-to-day attire.
It’s easy to see where the inspiration has come from. Silk PJs on and actress , as well as grey cashmere tracksuit, all shared on Instagram, make loungewear look effortlessly cool and cosy, while has been leaning on bright knitwear for an instant mood-boost.

That’s why many stylish parents have gone for more practical looks, in streetwear-influenced sweats and ‘dad’ trainers, and in a trusty pair of blue jeans. And mum or not, it's easy to see the appeal of combo.
There are still many who feel we should maintain professional standards when working from home, believing that trading pyjamas for more formal attire can motivate us to work more efficiently - the impeccable , or the Duchess of Sussex’s designer best friend both offer excellent examples of how to do it. It’s also true for Susanna Reid, who has been in a series of understated shirts. It’s a notion that makes sense; it certainly wouldn’t do to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed on a video call with a client or your boss.
When you are the boss of course, it's a different matter. Marc Jacobs has been using self-isolation as , sharing elaborate get-ups including banana-print scarves, platform boots and pearl necklaces with his 1.4 million followers. In the midst of such a frightening, life-changing crisis, such acts bring a much needed spark of joy.
For those of us still wearing faded tees with their oldest joggers (ahem) a little inspiration may still be required, and there’s plenty on Instagram, not only from celebrities and fashion insiders, but from dedicated accounts like , which launched just five days ago and showcases the stylish, amusing and sometimes downright weird get-ups people have been wearing.
It goes to show that - video conferencing propriety aside - there truly are no rules when it comes to what we wear in the comfort of our own homes. Anything that lifts the spirits and boosts productivity goes.
