WFH Essentials 2.0

Wed, 2021-05-19

Hello ladies! 

We hope that you are all well and keeping safe despite all the uncertainties and changes that have been happening around the world lately. In all things, we want to cheer each other on and to remind ourselves that this too shall pass and life is all about making the most out of the situation. 

To bring forth some light and grace into our lives, we know that many of us aren't going to the office or in-person events. As such, this gives us the perfect opportunity to refresh on our work from home essentials and to make it even better. 

Here are some staple pieces to add to your WFH style capsule. Think more stylish and more comfortable silhouettes to help motivate you to do the work you need to get done! ;)


1. Ristelle Two Way Pleated Top

Ruffles and pleats are classic staples that we are bringing back to the spotlight. Our Ristelle Two Way Pleated Top as seen @gilliansng on is extremely versatile. For your WFH look, pair it with your favourite denim shorts and you will feel comfy for the day. At the same time, you can be sure that this look will ensure that you are Zoom-ready any time. We also love how the whimsical pleats will make you feel a whole lot better about staying home! 

Our Ristelle Two Way Pleated Top comes in four different shades (White, Wisteria, Spring Mint and Pastel Blue).

2. Creston Top


If there’s one thing that’s unquestionably true about fashion and style, it’s the power of the little details. It might be the trims, stitching, zippers, or buttons. But all these minute elements can instantly transform a piece of clothing from basic to on-trend in a matter of seconds.

Our Creston Top as seen on co-founder @briannawonggg, features faux oversized buttons down the front and is a reinvented basic that everyone needs in their wardrobe, to bring you through your WFH situation and after.

Style tip: If you are feeling bold and adventurous, you can opt to style our Creston Top in Ash Lilac with our Rinda Pants in Seafoam. This style combination has an immediate refreshing effect and is sure to brighten your day. 

3. Oaklyn Two Way Midi Dress

The need for easy, stylish, single-item outfits is more essential than ever right now. The bright shade of aqua blue brings a playful yet elevated touch to our wardrobe.
We also love this piece as worn by co-founder @briannawonggg for having our signature two-way designs (one of which, is a very unique angular neckline)!

Our Oaklyn Two Way Midi Dress allows you to look effortlessly put together in an instant. This timeless look will serve you well for this period and beyond, we are sure. When the time comes, just opt for a pair of statement footwear, accessorise and top it off with a cute bag of your choice.

4. Camden Culottes In Khaki


Looking for a bottom that will match seamlessly with all your tops this season? Try our Camden Culottes in Khaki as seen on co-founder @briannawonggg. This pair guarantees comfort while you are home and we are almost certain that this will go well with the tops you already own, no matter the colours or prints. Here we are pairing it with our Kreda Top in Ash Lilac but go on and experiment it your way.
Try out your favourite cropped top or tuck in your basic tee and be all dressed up to tackle your workday in comfort and in style.

If Khaki isn’t your cup of tea, our Camden Culottes comes in three other shades (Ash Lilac, White & Forest).

5. Kayen Pants


What makes stripes our all-time favourite is that they're one of the most timeless print of all. Give your 9-5 wardrobe a colourful update with our Kayen Pants in Green as seen on @audreyxaudrey. We love how the bright hues on this piece livens up the mood!

If this look is too bold for your liking, you can opt to style our pants with a top that matches the colours on the pants.

Over here, we have styled our Kayen Pants in Pink with our Andee Tee in Sage that adds a touch of brightness and freshness to your entire outfit! ;)


And with that, we hope that this styling feature has inspired you to elevate your work from home essentials and in freshening up your work from home essentials, it’ll help in boosting your work productivity as well. These staple pieces will journey with you through your WFH days and beyond. Remember to tag us on Instagram (@theclosetlover@theclosetlover.malaysia#tclootd) for a chance to be featured on our socials.
