ZOOM CALL STYLE

3 LOOKS FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS

By Slaters Style  October 1st, 2020

 

With national restrictions looking likely to be around for the foreseeable, what once was a novelty 2-minute journey to work (aka your dining room table office) in your pj’s, working from home has fast become the norm. As time passes we have to set ourselves new style standards to suit our new working lifestyle. We've pulled together 3 simple style swaps to help you achieve your perfect home working look.

 

YOU WEAR A SUIT IN THE OFFICE → SMART LAYERS AT HOME

 

If you wear a suit in the office, your office attire is held to a high standard so don’t let that slip just because you’re at home. Swap your suit jacket for a smart jumper. Depending on your type of work or what position you hold, you may be still expected to ‘show up’ even if that only means virtually. So, with or without a tie, layer a classic coloured knit over a smart shirt and show that you still mean business, even if that is only from the waist up!

SHIRT & TIE GUY → OPEN COLLAR SHIRT

 

If you are a shirt and tie guy, lose the tie. Open collared shirts are smart enough for a work meeting but comfortable enough for being at home. This doesn’t need to be your usual crisp white shirt – dip into your weekend wardrobe and boast a bold checked shirt or a lighter and more comfortable fabric like linen.

SMART CASUAL → STAY SMART CASUAL

 

If you normally dress smart casual, stay that way. Don’t go down the route turning up to the Monday morning trade meeting in a hoodie. The longer this way of life we currently find ourselves living goes on, it’s understandable that the level of effort going into dressing for work would drop, but it has been said that getting up and getting dressed as you would, sets you up better for your day. Stick to tried and tested smart casual styles like a casual shirt, or long sleeve polo shirt for something a bit more trend led. If anything, it means you will still get the same feeling of relief and comfort when you do jump into your loungewear at 5pm.
