No matter if I am talking to neighbours, who mentions that they are loving working from home and have moved their business back home, to a mum on the soccer field who is talking about how her dog set off all other dogs of her colleagues while on a Zoom call.
Working from home is here to stay and that might mean a slight shift in your wardrobe direction.
So this week I have toured the web and curated a list of “love it” looks that are comfortable yet Zoom-meeting effective.
If meetings via video are your new normal you also may like to read through the pointers I made a few months ago in the article “How To Dress From The Waist Up”.
Dress For Your Day
Working from home is something I have been used to for a long time. But it might be new for you and you are still settling into your space at home, not sure how to dress.
Look at your diary for the next day and see if they involve video meetings, phone conferences or simply doing your work.
And look after yourself, one client told me that “heating up the house for one person seemed a bit silly”. Sitting in an ice cold space for an extended period of time is not great for your health so look into things like a small heater or at least dress in multiple layers.
For me typing makes my hands really cold so I found “Hot Hands” that keep my fingers nice and warm. (just Google it) And of course a good supply of green tea works for me too.
Outfits below are linked in a Pinterest folder with loads more ideas. I will keep adding looks to this as the new collections filter in.
TAKE A BREAK
Smell the roses so to say and enjoy a bit of fresh air, stretch your legs and soak up some sunlight while you have the chance. Giving your mind a rest will do wonders for your productivity.
Assess if your “office” situation is ergonomic enough so that you don’t land at the physio. I am sure many kitchen tables and chairs are now converted to an office space during the day. If your body is not happy at the end of the day, suss out why.
ENJOY THE NO-COMMUTE
How good is the commute! All this extra time you would normally spend going to and from the office is yours to enjoy!
I heard some people say they don’t have to get up as early.
ZOOM INTO A STYLE SESSION
If you feel a bit stuck with your wardrobe. I am so happy to help. My zoom sessions are super effective to give you the looks that work for you.
I do all the prep work in creating styles to propose to you, just as I do in person, and when we meet via video I will take you through my thoughts on what I think would look great on you. All based on what you are looking for.
Zoom Style Sessions available for women and men.
