How To Always Look Good On Zoom
With most of us back to multiple Zoom calls a day, there’s no excuse not to look great, even if it’s sometimes just from the waist up (don’t worry, your secret is safe with us). From statement tops to chic kimonos, the softest knits to bombers that mean business, we’ve got you covered for your next meeting.
Statement tops and brightly-colored blouses have returned to the wardrobe this year, especially given the rise in over-the-desk dressing. To instantly put a spring in your step and add color to your face, opt for a high-neck top that’s bursting with vibrant blooms, like the Sew In Love Raglan Button Up Shirt. With its blouson sleeves and CAMILLA crystals, this is the perfect top to brighten up an early-morning online meeting.

For the ultimate multi-tasker WFH outfit, you really can’t beat an elegant jersey shirt dress. Slip it on, cinch it in at the waist and then get to work. With its relaxed silhouette, casual collar and half-buttoned front, you’ll be able to attend your Zoom meetings, assume the role of teacher as you home-school, run errands and make dinner… maybe not all at once, but just about. Team with the Luxe Black Buckle Slipper to complete the perfectly chic at-home look.

If you’re most comfortable in soft tailoring, then the Fitzgerald’s Flapper Relaxed Jacket with Hip Pockets, plus matching Straight Leg Pant is guaranteed to up your sartorial game – and best of all, you can easily wear this into the office, and then to after-work drinks. This statement silk jacket and suit combo, with luxe gold accents, exudes effortless elegance that won’t dull during your next virtual encounter.

The art of layering has never been as popular, as we continue to segue between formal and casual dress codes, not to mention the ever-changing temperatures. The key is to start with one statement piece and then build your outfit around it with simple, yet complementary separates, as well as some eye-catching accessories. For example, take a classic turtleneck, team it with a pair of leather pants, and then add the opulent Gothic Goddess Long Casual Jacket for a light layer that exudes luxury. For more of a streetstyle classic (at home, of course), opt for the silk bomber jacket instead.

Finally, ensure your complexion is perfection by starting with good skin prep. Just like with your outfit, layering your skincare is key for a healthy glow that translates on the screen. Start with a nourishing serum applied to the face, followed by a priming moisturiser and then an SPF (because even when WFH, you need to protect your skin).
For make-up, go for a tinted moisturiser (rather than full coverage) to ensure your face looks fresh, then combat any shine with a little loose powder dusted down the T-section. Dab a vibrant pink blusher onto the apple of the cheeks, before sweeping a neutral eyeshadow across the lids for a soft, pretty look. Finally, for lips – the choice is yours, from a bold red lip to soft pink balm. Just wear whatever makes you feel most confident.
