WEAR your pambahay as you work from home, but make it #fashion!
It has been more than 200 days since the quarantine began and there is no assurance if most of us will still be working from home in the coming months.
Like a typical work-from-home (WFH) employee, a lot of you may be running out of ideas on what to wear for your next video conference. While most companies don’t require employees to dress up, if this is all you need as motivation to wake up and beat your deadlines, then make the best of it.
To help you decide what to wear and where to shop, we’ve rounded up a few online stores and put them on a list.
These shops offer chic yet affordable loungewear or “pambahay” you might be interested in.
These outfits may also serve as inspiration to brighten up your seemingly monotonous job on remote duty.
