Many of us have been in quarantine for several weeks now, and we're working to establish a new daily routine. If you're like us, you are setting up home offices and finding new ways to feel alive and happy. Life has been a little unnerving with constant media updates and news of continuous changes. We know it can be hard to stay motivated and feel and look your best each day, so we've put together a list of our favorite  WFH (work from home) styles. We hope this puts a little pep in your step as we adjust to remote working life #TogetherApart. 


If your new work uniform is pure athletic wear, you aren’t the only one. Chunkysneakersare sticking around (WFH or not).Unison is available in three colors, and all are great for tackling those chores you've meant to get to. Need a brain break? Vacuum your living room? Pondering a project? Do a quick clean of the kitchen. These comfortable sneakers will help you conquer your workday and your home life. What more can a girl ask for?


If having attire that still feels like it has a street beat vibe to it, Camile is an excellent option for your WFH uniform. Our team loves this style because of how comfy and practical it is. Our teammate Carmen says, “This shoe is so easy to slip on for the day and casual enough to wear if I need to pop by the grocery store and pick up a few essentials. They're comfortable enough to wear all day. They are also perfect for going on a short walk with the dogs.” 


Spring seems to be arriving earlier than usual this year in many parts of the country. That’s a reason to smile! If your WFH preference is to show off the home pedicure, then the  Sierra sandal is a go-to favorite. This comfy sandal is simple to slip on and off. It makes you totally presentable for all your Zoom meetings. This chunky sandal meshes with shorts, linen pants and your favorite athleisure gear. You will never have to worry about changing up your footwear at home until fall rolls around (and hopefully our lives will be more stabilized by then)! 


Sometimes it feels nice to add a little bit of height to your jogger suit.Earthshine made our staff's favorites due to its lightweight sole and soft leather upper. Plus, who doesn’t like a shoe that’s so easy to slip on? The bright white EVA bottom stands out and makes us feel put together. It’s also super comfortable and cozy due to the memory foam padded sock.  Just pour us our coffee, and we are ready to slay the day. 


Slip-on shoes have always been a style of choice. They are easy, comfortable and take all the hassle out of getting ready in the morning. Islander has a fun statement platform with a variety of color blocking. The stretchy knit material is soft and cozy, stretching to the perfect fit. It provides the ideal amount of texture to our casual WFH attire. 


Once again, this is a personal favorite of the bunch.Alstead pairs with about any kind of bottom and top, making it a daily staple. We love how comfortable the sole is for stepping out to get fresh air. It feels great while you’re out getting some movement. The unlined construction is so soft and feels like you're wearing a pair of socks instead of sneakers. Best of all, it looks like you tried to be fashionable in the morning, even when that is not always the case. 


If you are working from home right now, you may be relying entirely on basics. If so, don’t fret! TheVicky slip-on sneaker is the perfectcomfort shoe to tackle your day with. We are obsessed with the Mauve. It gives us the perfect pop of color to our wardrobe. Our teammate Emilee says, "The Vicky's netted material gives this athleisure shoe the textured edge I’m always looking for.” The soft mesh design makes this style cozy and functional. We love wearing this sneaker when we take midday breaks to get some fresh air and spend some time with our fur babies.


Sometimes comfort absolutely overthrows our need for fashion, and that’s ok. Luckily with OTBT, you get both. We are focusing on making our WFH wardrobe fashionable (whatever that looks like to you!) We loveWhitney because of its lightweight materials and comfort features. It’s also one of the best transitional sandals to bring out for the season! Pair these with joggers or jeans (if you decide to dress up). 

Now that you have some of our favorite staff picks, we hope you can create the perfect WFH uniform. We are all in this together and are ready to slay each day with you. Share your favorite WFH looks at @OTBTShoes #TogetherApart
