With these 13 work from home wardrobe essentials, you can create a capsule wardrobe that gives you dozens of easy, comfortable outfits. Plus, you can wear these inexpensive pieces (from Amazon!) year-round.

I recently published a post with a business casual capsule wardrobe featuring pieces from Amazon and, of course, the first comment I got was, “Hey, can you do something like this for those of us working from home?”

This capsule wardrobe features stylish business casuals basics you can wear year-round. Because everything goes together perfectly, you have tons of outfit choices from just 15 pieces (plus 3 pairs…

Makes sense! After all, while our at home look doesn’t need to exactly follow the in-office dress code, we still need comfortable clothes that look neat and professional.

Fortunately, I’ve compiled a home capsule wardrobe of flattering and comfy pieces that I can wear year-round. Instead of dragging myself out of bed and just putting on sweats or keeping on my pajamas (c’mon we’ve all done it or at least considered it, right?), I can grab something from my closet that makes me feel pretty and professional and comfortable when I’m on my video calls. Plus, all the pieces go together so I can make several work from home outfits from the same few pieces. Win!

If you need a work from home wardrobe that lets you feel like you’re still in your sweats, but helps you look pulled together and professional on your Zoom meetings, then check out these home wardrobe essentials. Everything’s from Amazon and nothing costs more than $45.00!

Fleece Short-Sleeve Cocoon Dress with Pockets

A dress to wear at home? Sure, when it’s this dress that’s made from soft materials like your softest sweatshirt. Just throw it on and you’re in work mode for the day!

Sleeveless Jumpsuit

Sleeveless Jumpsuit from Amazon

I keep this versatile jumpsuit in heavy rotation because it’s a great option year-round. Just add a sweater or long-sleeve tee underneath it in the colder months. It’s super-comfortable and flattering on everyone.

90 Degree By Reflex Power Flex Yoga Pants

Yoga Pants from Amazon

These yoga pants are under $30.00 and are more comfortable and fit better than my previous favorite Athleta leggings. Plus, they act like shapewear for your tummy and butt. I own these yoga pants in a few different colors!

Daily Ritual Faux-5 Pocket Flat-Front Legging

faux-pocket leggings

Slightly dressier than leggings, but still stretchy and comfy, these pants have faux front pockets for a smooth fit, but real pockets in back. Because women need pockets, even in their home office.

Daily Ritual Supersoft V-Neck Sweatshirt

terry sweatshirt from Amazon

This buttery soft sweatshirt is a beautiful soft pink that’s flattering to most complexions and the tie detail on the sleeves elevates it from a basic sweatshirt. This runs a little big, so you might want to size down is you like a closer fit.

Long Sleeve Wrap High/Low Knit Top 

Long Sleeve Wrap Top from Amazon

I reach for this shirt again and again because it’s just so versatile. This lovely wrap top has a longer hem in back and drapes beautifully without gaps. This shirt works great layered over a tank or under a thicker sweater when you need more warmth.

Soft Jersey Knit Scoop Neck Loose Tank

This is a great basic that works well on its own or as a layering piece. It has a looser shape than the average tank so it looks a little more professional on Zoom calls.

Leopard Print V-Neck T-Shirt

Work from Home Wardrobe Essentials [2022] 4

You can be stylish and comfortable with this leopard print t-shirt! Plus, this piece works like a neutral because it goes with almost everything. It’s a great way to add a touch of style to a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit.

Longer Length Cardigan Sweater

I wear this sweater ALL. THE. TIME. And, I included this sweater in my business casual wardrobe too! Here’s why you’ll be wearing this sweater on a regular basis – it’s buttery soft, it feels like you’re wearing a soft blanket, it goes with almost anything, and what was that last thing? Oh, yeah! It’s under $35.00!

Open Front Fashion Color Block Cardigan

Work from Home Wardrobe Essentials [2022] 6

I wear a lot of sweaters when I’m working from home. They’re more comfortable than a rigid jacket and they help make my outfit look just a little more finished. This oversized sweater is perfect for adding a finishing touch because the casual weave keeps it from being too hot.. The colors go perfectly with all the other pieces in this capsule wardrobe so it’s one of the key pieces I reach for when I want to add a little something to elevate my outfit.

Classic Cable Knit Cardigan

Work from Home Wardrobe Essentials [2022] 7

If I need something a little warmer, I’ll reach for this classic cable knit cardigan. This cardigan works well with the other pieces of my wardrobe and is amazing quality for an under $35 sweater. I love the color and how warm it is.

Keds Kickstart Fashion Sneaker

Work from Home Wardrobe Essentials [2022] 8

Here’s another staple that I turn to over and over again: the classic white Keds sneaker.  This fashionable sneaker can handle an early morning walk and then keep your feet comfortable while you work. At under $50, these Keds are much more reasonably priced than some other fashion sneakers and still look great.

Soler Leather Flat Sandal

Work from Home Wardrobe Essentials [2022] 9

I turn to these stylish leather slides any time I want something just a little more professional than my favorite fuzzy slippers. I think of these shoes like fancy underwear: sure, nobody but me may know I’m wearing them, but I still feel like they give me a professional edge when I have them on. Oh, and am I sacrificing comfort for this style? Of course not.
