A New Uniform for the Nation’s (Female) Telecommuting Workforce

by Mike Hunter


A best practice for work-from-home workers is transitioning from “domestic mode” to “work mode,” a meaningful psychological shift that requires changing out of sweats or PJs into something that signals time to go to work.

Online retailer Betabrand recently launched WFH Pants in more than 50 colors and styles. They’re tailor-made for the worker who wants to transition from pajamas into something more professional — but just as comfortable — for her newly remote job.

“We’ve had to refashion our own staff from office employees to at-home workers,” says company founder Chris Lindland, “and now we’ve done the same with our flagship product, Dress Pant Yoga Pants. They’re the most comfortable pants to wear to work, wherever you work, be it a Fortune 500 office or the living room couch.”

Another recommendation for at-home workers: Fitness breaks. And, since WFH Pants are designed with the performance features of activewear, there’s no need to change clothes before a stroll around the neighborhood.
