Simple, easy to throw on, and classic is the key here. If there’s one thing this pandemic changed in terms of fashion it’s that style became much more laid back, and casual. We are still working from home these days so… our lazy asses have even found a way to make office blazers look relaxed. Whats’ my take on this? Well, let’s see: I LOVE IT. I love the casualness of it all, the style, the vibe, which ironically goes hand in and with my lack of time and motivation really to get all dressed up these days. I still wanna look good tho, if that makes any sense, but if it can be done with good clothes and 0 effort I’m in. And apparently the ‘zoom fashion’ CAN be done in such a way to please both our professional/fashion selves as well as lazy selves.
Think t-shirts with gorgeous necklaces, or blazers over sporty tank tops, luxe knit cardigans over sweats. That sort if style narrative…
Also… I think we might as well milk this laid back vibe till it’s still here, cause after pandemic like is gone I seriously predict a boom in all aspects of life, fashion included. So I think we’ll be overdressed and oner the top when this ends for a loooong time.
Bottom line is what does one wear to zoom work meetings? Yeah yeah we know by now there’s a party on the bottom and most often than not we’re in leggings or sweats. Pjs anyone? (raises hand). But do we keep up appearances on the top? Do we bother or need to bother anymore to look professional? YES and NO really. Personally I think the definition of smart wear changed a lot, and is more relaxed. We’re not pretending to be anything we’re not, but we are still keen to look good. For lack of better word.
Hey you’d be surprised to see how cool and put together a blazer looks even over the oldest pj top.
So yes our fashion office life is hanging by our tops alone. That’s all our colleagues and bosses see so no wonder there’s more emphasis on simple cute tops, good makeup, jewelleries, lipstick, low maintenance hairstyles.
Simplicity is the key.
Best tops to wear for zoom meetings:
Blazers over anything.
T-shirts and necklaces
Cardigans and knits over loungewear.
Looks and sounds so easy, yet I always end up having a little mental breakdown before a zoom meeting cause I don’t know what to wear.
