Greetings Roz and Blessed New Year!I have a question – rather I have a battle and need your help. I now work virtual from home and have no need to get dressed-up anymore. The voices in my head tell me different – any suggestions on a type of “style” that still is comfortable, professional, and a little Fru-Fru. What about types of fabric? Since I have been working from home – I have gained wieght (because – elestic waistbands give) I feel I still need to have some-sort of pride -even when in the house.Thanks for the suggestions
Ceeflosew, I would suggest using garmets made from comfortable fabrics. Fabrics like knits (made from good quality cotton, viscose or cashmere) or fabrics with lycra.Knits will give you a closer fit and not look so crumpled and fabrics with lycra will have some give. Fitted T-shirts, wrap tops, A-line skirts and pants with a mid-rise (pants that stop at the navel or just right below) with a straight leg. I hope this helps!Roz
