How working from home has changed our wardrobes

I have been working from home for about 7 years now. So I am kind of used to having a work from home wardrobe for my week days. However, the world was pretty much thrown into working from home last year and so many workers had to adapt to the new way of life. Working from home has definitely changed our wardrobes. When you work from home, you want to look decent for video calls (if any) but comfortable at the same time. Ideally, you should be out of your pyjamas but that may not be the case for everyone. From my experience from working from home, your shopping habits usually changes dramatically. The pieces and accessories you would typically go for if you had to go outside of your home for work would not appeal to you when you are stuck at home working.

How working from home has changed our wardrobes

Here are 3 ways working from home has changed my wardrobe –

Shopping habits

Like I previously said, this is usually the first thing to change when you start working from home. You realise you don’t need to shop regularly and when you do go shopping, you go for pieces that would keep you comfy at home, but not necessarily glamorous. instead of straight black trousers for example, you may find yourself buying a pair of leggings or joggers.

Accessories take a back seat

I really can’t remember the last time I bought a bag or footwear but then again, I feel like I have loads already and these days I hardly have use for them. Working from home means no commuting so the bags and shoes don’t need to be upgraded.

You shop your closet

Working from home for many also gives them the opportunity to shop their closet. Apart from the fact that there is more time to get dressed which gives you time to dig into your wardrobe, you may also find that you have more confidence to mix and match pieces you may not dare wear to the office. This for me is a big plus. I get to wear all sorts these days in the privacy of my home.

Are you working from home? How has it changed your sense of fashion, your wardrobe and your shopping habits? Please sound off in the comments section below.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Why you should hire a social media manager

If you have a business with an online presence, you should hire a social media manager. Every business should have an online presence. This is 2020 and one thing this year has taught us is the importance of being able to carry on your business outside your regular office. Having an online presence allows you to do just that and this is where a social media manager comes in. Social media management is one of the many freelance jobs I do. I am a dedicated social media manager to a couple of clients and I really enjoy my job. Social media is like my playground and I enjoy managing various clients’ platforms even more than my own.

Here are three reasons why you should hire a social media manager now if you haven’t done so already –

It gives you time to work on your business

Hiring a social media manager allows you to have extra time to work on your business. Social media is a lot of fun but it can be time-consuming, especially when you are not sure of how best to come about it. Outsourcing your social media management takes the hassle of dealing with your platforms on a day-to-day basis, and allows you to focus on running your business.

A good social media manager understands social media

Social media is forever changing. The algorithm rules vary from platform to platform, it is a job in itself to keep up. For instance, the hashtag rule on Instagram changes regularly, it is tricky to know how to go about it if you are not comfortable managing business pages on social media.  A good social media manager understands the platforms and keeps up to date with the rules and regulations for each platform.

Social media management comes with a strategy

The first thing I do with a new client is to discuss a social media strategy. That way we are sure of the goals and objectives of each platform and I can work towards them. It is always good to have a clear strategy to work with, that way you are able to set weekly/monthly goals for each platform and track progress.

If you are after a social media manager for your business, you can get in touch with me via email – fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com, to discuss further. I have some availability this month and I am eager to take on new clients. Thanks for reading. Have a great week ahead.
