Keep one of these jackets on hand for surprise meetings
The beauty of working at home is that you can wear what you like. But that beauty can turn ugly when you you jump out of bed, throw on some comfy clothes, and get to work only to realize — three hours later — that you are due at a meeting — or in a video call — and you are still in your pajamas. There is no time for a fashion crisis. You have to throw on a jacket and fly.
Here are three affordable jackets that can turn your lounge wear into a meeting-ready ensemble. Hang one on the back of your desk chair and be ready. (That’s why stocking up on work-at-home wear that is not flannel pajamas with Rick and Morty on them is a good idea.)
You could throw this Daily Ritual Women’s Military Cargo jacket on over a pair of leggings and be ready for most casual meetings. It won’t keep you warm. But sometimes the last thing you want from a jacket is warmth. You just want to cover up your tank top, have a few pockets, and make your jeans more presentable. Some colors and sizes in this jacket are currently less than $10. Grab one!
Throw this knit blazer on on top of a tee and leggings and you will be instantly ready for any kind of meeting. Even if your jeans are frayed and your top is nothing more than a camisole. You can be ready a few minutes after your calendar reminder goes off. Some sizes in this jacket are currently less than $15.
This jacket is classy and classic all at once. Throw it over anything and you are ready to take that video meeting. It comes in every possible size from petite to plus and some of them are less than $40. You only need one, right? For interviews and meetings with people who don’t wait for your cat to join the meeting before they’ll get down to business.
I only review products I have tried or own and like enough to recommend to a friend I also like. If you buy something from one of my links, I make a little money.
