How to look your best when WFH? Working from home is the default status for most of us right now, and with this, a new fashion category has been born: ” Waist-up dressing. “
What to wear for essential Zoom or Skype or other online calls – which may be the only interactions you have with your colleagues – when just your top half is visible- requires a very different dressing style and finesse.
Simply because your” waist – up dressing ” is enlarged online- almost everything looks like under a microscope.
So, dressing right takes strategy.
Here are my top tips for your best online STAR-PRESENCE and How to look your best when WFH:
1. Create a focus
Don’t clutter your online look by doing too many things at once.
Best to keep your hair neat ( or away from your face), minimum make – up ( avoid a strong lipstick/ my favourite is a lipgloss), choose your jewellery carefully – less is more- personally I would only wear stud earrings.
2. Clothes Style
Yes, you work from home, but keep it professional by opting for a smart-casual style.
Personally, I would only choose solid colours in light to medium shades.
Print designs don’t do you any favours, because they add additional clutter to your online STAR-PRESENCE and often look distorted in online calls
Wearing a blazer or not depends on who you are talking to and in which industry you work in.
TOP TIP: Keep your neckline free of clutter, so your words will carry more weight.
FACT IS: The best professional online look is a classic, fresh and tidy one.
For a signature look – just add one accessory e.g strong glasses or wear your top in a strong solid colour or necklace ( but make sure it sits below the collarbone)
It will make you look sharp, dynamic and energised. Plus it will make you look younger and slimmer.
