Work from home in sustainable style with our outfit edit

Working from home sounds like a breeze, right? What’s not to love about not having to do the daily office commute? But after the first buzz of setting your alarm for an hour later wears off, one of the biggest challenges can be staying disciplined and productive. You don’t always get to set your own hours, if you have children they are probably tearing around the house while you do that videoconference, your comfortable home is not set up as an office, and working in your pyjamas…just doesn’t feel right.

So what is in your control in an unfamiliar work environment? ECOLOOKBOOK’s edit of relaxed, yet stylish ethical and sustainable work clothes for a home office will help you to maintain that professional attitude and may even boost your creativity.
