Things are pretty weird right now, we have to admit, and I’m sure we can all agree that this new working from home arrangement has taken a little bit of getting used to. While we’ve all made comments in the past about how convenient it would be to go from bed, to desk straight back to bed, (morning commute, we do not miss you), we can’t ignore that this routine or lack thereof has thrown a spanner in the works.
During times like these, it’s important to implement some healthy distractions into your daily routine. For some of us, this includes activities like exercise, long baths, listening to podcasts, baking (big yes) and of course, reading our horoscopes. While the findings from apps like Co — Star might not have an exact answer for what is going on right now, one challenge they can help us overcome is the daily dilemma of the #WFHOutfit.
Finding the balance in creating an outfit that is equal parts chic, comfortable and mood-elevating is no easy task. But as it turns out, our zodiac signs are actually a great indicator of our personal style mantra. Below, we have the lowdown on the WFH outfit vibes for every star sign!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The Aries has always been known as the most active of the signs, being able to source energy from anywhere no matter the situation. When there’s a task that needs doing, this sign thrives in a cool, elevated workout look. Maximum comfort = maximum productivity.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Renowned for their stubbornness, a Taurus knows what they like and they stick to it. Their more sensual side also lends to a love of luxurious fabrics, so you’ll likely spot a few oversized linen blouses, free-flowing skirts and buttery-soft leather in their WFH outfits.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
No other sign can rock a print like a Gemini. Their wardrobes are filled with graphic patterns and expressive colours, so look out for their daring matching shirt and trouser patterned looks during your next Zoom call. They also LOVE an accessory.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Contrastingly to Gemini’s, Cancer’s sartorial preferences lean much further to the romantic side. Think feminine silhouettes and whimsical, flowy dresses pared with a touch of gold jewellery.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
One word: drama. Working from home doesn’t stop any Leo from bringing the wow factor to their daily outfits. Their looks are expressive and always include an out-of-the-ordinary splash of colour, texture or silhouette. Even if the only person who sees them that day is the mailman.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
When it comes to picking their WFH outfit, a Virgo’s top priority is always practicality. You’ll often see them sporting a sensible look of tonal, well-fitted trousers, comfortable knits and loafers. The perfect mix of chicness and functionality.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
‘Casual’ isn’t a word that is used frequently in a Libra’s fashion vocabulary. Even when working from home, their style is always refined and elevated. While they might not be sporting their usual office power suit, Libra’s are opting for a more relaxed alternative, switching it up with linen or washed cotton materials.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Style comes with ease for Scorpios. Their resourceful nature means they are able to pull together some pretty cool ‘fits without even thinking about it. While they do have a preference for black, their passionate spirit brings vibrancy to any team conference call.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
All about making a statement, Sagittariuses are lovers of an exaggerated sleeve or embellished sweater. In between team meetings, they can be found uploading their Instagram-worthy outfits to social media for other fashion lovers to see and fuss over.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Lovers of routine, Capricorns are known to usually have a uniform. Their staple mum jeans and white t-shirt is so effortlessly cool its enviable. The real question is how do they make jeans look so comfortable?
Aquarius (January 18-February 18)
The Aquarius is not one to follow trends, so their WFH outfits will generally be based on how they’re feeling that day. They also have a unrivaled ability to expertly mishmash pieces that on paper, would never work.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
A free, bohemian spirit, the Pisces can’t go past a long embroidered ivory gown, even when they’re working from the comfort of their living room couch. Their love of detail extends to their loungewear and sleepwear, so even when they’re having a lazy pyjama day, there’s always something special about their outfit.
