Mondays are hard to get by. After spending Sunday in your most comfy PJs, Monday mornings bring about a rude awakening as you step out of this fleece cocoon into your work-appropriate clothes. Thankfully, the sartorial gods feel the pain. Enter trend oversized dressing. This SS’17 trend is a big hit with millennials as it allows a seamless transition from your bed to your desk. Here are a few outfit cues that will make it easier for you to make it through the day.
Swap those pajama bottoms for billowy slack. Bonus points if you find a striped pair like this – it’s on trend and stripes are the answer to work dress codes.
Oh, the unbearable lightness of going pant-less in this sweltering heat. If you’ve spent the weekend vegging out in an old oversized T-shirt (let’s face it, we all have), the easiest swap up for a Monday morning is a T-shirt dress. Same comfort level plus Monday-ready.
If your Monday morning entails back-to-back meetings, then an oversized blazer is the best answer to the situation. Think of it as an extension of you favourite blanket–only more work-appropriate and business ready.
If you work in an environment with slightly stricter dress codes, a boxy white button down is your knight in shining armor. Your colleagues don’t need to know that you’re still in weekend state of mind.
