Twitter users have hit back at an article advising employees not to wear sweatpants while working from home.
The Wall Street Journal piece, published on Tuesday, advises readers to ditch loungewear in favour of 'dressy' clothes when working remotely, in order to 'stay focused and on task for the professional part'.
Entitled What to Wear to Work - When you Work from Home it recommends 'upgrading' to a $125 (£98) Cos sweater, $325 (£254) APC pants and $645 (£504) loafers from Tod's.
But readers were most offended by the suggestion of a $3,100 (£2,424) Prada purse.
