We have been working at home for a while, and most of us have our business-casual work outfits on repeat. With winter weather upon us, it is nice to have a refresh on what to wear for video calls. Here a few tips to help you feel and dress Like a pro. Business casual is still the uniform of choice. Wear tops that cover your arms and choose a modest neckline.
We all want to be authentic and appear trustworthy. You can achieve these qualities by wearing solid, neutral colors. Black, grey, camel, bisque, or winter white are all neutrals and appear authentic for video calls. I believe blue, green, burgundy, and shades of brown are cheerful colors to wear too. If you love to wear prints, make sure you choose a small all-over print. You want your clients to focus on you and what you are offering, not what you are wearing. If you have a presentation or want to appear the expert, wear a blazer. Accessories like scarves and jewelry are excellent additions to add to your outfit.
