10 Clothing Pieces You Can Wear at Home That Will Never Wrinkle or Crease
Quality fabrics that don’t require constant pressing.
Working from home comes with its own set of sartorial challenges. Even clothes that don’t need to be ironed or steamed upon dressing tend to crease and crinkle the second you bust a move, especially with all the couch and bed lounging (shh...we won’t tell) that we’re doing on the daily. Wrinkled clothing is not a good look—even on Zoom meetings—so we found some seriously-springy, extra-cozy clothing and accessory options (made from natural materials that don’t wrinkle easily) that will keep you looking and feeling put-together all day long.
This wrap-front bodysuit from Banana Republic has been selling out like crazy and, after giving it a wear (or five), we can see why. The 95 percent polyester, 5 percent spandex blend fabric glides on seamlessly, feels like a second skin, and has a slinky-like resistance. The draping along the bodice can be adjusted for customized coverage, and the thong bodysuit means no uncomfortable or bulky panty lines (or, ahem, need to wear a panty in general). If you want to spice things up, we also love the floral and animal prints (last time we checked, it was also on sale!).
Tired of spending your Sunday evenings ironing button-ups for the week ahead? Save time and money by stocking up on some cuffed shirts from Quince’s sophisticated Wrinkleguard line. The brand’s crease- and cost-conscious offerings include this buttery-soft supima poplin shirt, as well as French linen long-sleeved and short-sleeved options for different texture preferences and temperatures.
Cashmere is known to be among the more forgiving of fabrics, and NAADAM offers a wide, budget-friendly range of styles for achieving maximum comfort with little effort. This crewneck comes in a whopping 14 shades and pairs well with pretty much any pant (there are also joggers and even jumpsuits for the serious softness-seeker).
Polyester and silk, especially when found in lightweight or sheer forms, are another great alternative for keeping creases at bay. This breezy, scrunch-safe style from Joie can be worn tucked in or out, and as is or layered over another top for added warmth (this paisley pattern strikes the perfect balance between edgy and whimsical and works for all seasons).
Lululemon knows a little something about comfort. That’s why we were excited to discover these city slickers, featuring a breathable, four-way stretch, wrinkle-resistant fabric and shape retention for smooth (yet still structured) wear. Heads up: they run small so the brand recommends sizing up.
Prefer a looser style? Opt for these "no tummy" pants from Chico’s. They have an elastic waistband for easy dressing and a wrinkle-resistant acetate-spandex fabric for remaining polished. The style is also available in three shades and four lengths for finding the perfect hue and length for you.
Add a touch of cool to any wardrobe without having to worry about the deep lines that come from folding leather. These faux leather leggings from Spanx are available in three lengths so you don’t need to worry about any bunching (and they also boast some serious slimming effects).
Joggers are having a serious moment in the pandemic, and for good reason—they’re as versatile as they are comfortable, and compatible with a range of loungewear and office separates. Get the look with this lined pair from Athleta, which has a special stretch technology for added mobility and a more flattering fit. Bonus: The wrinkle-resistant, SPF-equipped, and machine-washable material is also sustainably sourced from post-consumer bottles.
Last-minute video conference call? Pull your look together with ease with Boston Proper’s collection of wrinkle-resistant blazers, which offer a relaxed fit and can be worn right out of a closet or suitcase. Don’t be afraid to make a bold statement with a brighter hue (there are nine total).
Stretchy knits are typically known for their shape-shifting abilities, able to bounce back from the most serious of benders. This eco-conscious pick from Rothy’s comes in 24 hues and patterns, and can even be thrown in the washer for easy cleaning.
