Why You Should Start Dressing Up While Working From Home

More and more employees are being appointed to work from home due to the current situation worldwide. But it isn’t so bad, especially since businesses are slowly seeing the benefits of having remote employees continue to do their part. Although it can be challenging for some people to remain focused while in the comfort of their homes, it isn’t entirely impossible to change your mindset regarding your situation. 

Some methods you can consider to train yourself to accomplish your tasks include minimizing distractions, lessening your breaks, isolating yourself in your workspace, and putting on work clothes. Depending on the circumstances, the attire you wear every day can affect your duties, most especially if you used to dress up every day to go to the office. 

Keep reading below to find out some reasons you should bring back your habit of dressing up for your job, but this time it’s to work from home. 

It Helps Lower Stress and Improves Productivity

Whenever people feel stressed or anxious, some turn towards activities that can help them put their minds at ease, such as meditating, doing yoga, practicing breathing exercises, and praying. Aside from that, creating a daily routine also trains one’s mind to focus on a task, keeping you from spiralling back to your negative thoughts.

It can be as simple as getting up early each morning, going for a run, eating breakfast, and dressing up for work. By finding balance within your busy life, you can notice your stress levels decreasing, and you will start to feel better.

Being organized will lead you to think that you’re keeping the order of your life intact despite carrying arduous tasks that can be draining. If you’re working from home, it’s possible to lose control of your day, especially if you used to work in an office setting.

While you may feel lonely at some point, you can regain your sense of stability and creativity by merely putting on your usual work clothes. As a result, you will be more productive, finishing your goals and putting your negative feelings at bay!

It Boosts Confidence and Professionalism

If you make it a habit to replace your comfortable clothes with tailored shirts while you work from home, you will begin to notice a shift in your mood. You will feel more confident and in control of your situation, preventing your environment from taking over your mindset.

In fact, dressing up to work from home trains your mind to place authority over your responsibilities, despite the setting of being stuck at home. You will feel more professional than if you spent your weekdays wearing comfortable clothes while sitting in front of a computer screen—which could only lead to endlessly browsing the web! 

By letting yourself believe that you have to take your work more seriously now since you dressed for the part, you can lessen distractions and chances of procrastinating because you’re in charge of your actions. You have to perceive that the bespoke clothing you’re wearing is motivating you to work more efficiently than before. 

At the end of the day, it’s up to you whether you will use the act of wearing work clothes at home as fuel to drive you to finish your tasks better and if you will add meaning to what you’re wearing. It’s in your hands if you want to feel good by looking your best and getting ready to take work more seriously!

It Sets the Boundary Between Work and Play

When you dress up to work from home, you can convince yourself that there is a true division that separates your home life from your work life. Wearing work clothes and spending the whole day finishing tasks allows you to look forward to ending work and switching to a more comfortable attire to call it a day.

Putting on custom dress shirts keeps you inspired and focused on nothing but accomplishing your goals until work ends—from which you can dress down and begin your home life again. It provides meaning that you will not be easily swayed by distractions happening around you! 

If you continue to put on work clothes every day, your mind will get used to the fact that you can’t be easily swayed just because you’re working from home. But if you choose to wear comfortable clothes, there are more chances of giving in to disturbances more than you think.


Working from home has its difficulties, but it all depends on your willingness to remain focused. Just by the simple act of putting on work clothes, you can expect it to affect the stress and anxiety you’re feeling, increasing your productivity in the long run. 

Dressing up also boosts your confidence, making you feel more professional and in control of your situation. It sets the boundary between work and play, allowing you to focus on your tasks at hand and encouraging you to look forward to finishing work so you can put on your comfortable clothes and end the day on a good note.

I ordered a suit for my wedding because I wanted something special and unique made just for me. I was initially drawn to DVC because I noticed from their website the importance of the details along with the flashy look I wanted! The whole experience was excellent!
