Have a zoom call meeting scheduled for this week? Take note of our top four tips to looking polished and professional at all virtual occasions.
- Keep It Tailored On The Top
When it comes to deciding what you want to wear on the top, we suggest identifying or purchasing pieces that convey professionalism and elegance. Stay away from t-shirts, tank tops, and hoodies. Think structured blazers, ultra-feminine blouses, and tailored shirts. We love the Andiswa Apparel’s St. Unathi blouse, and Moraba Collective’s Green Bird suit jacket. Keep in mind that unlike an in-person event, where black and white clothing appear to be the chicest and presentable, virtual meetings call for bold colours, as muted tones don’t show up very well on camera.
- Keep It Casual From The Waist Down
When it comes to putting together the perfect Zoom call or video conference outfit, most people think that the last thing you have to be concerned about is what shoes and pants they’re wearing. Wrong! Well kind of. Your pants and shoes won’t show up on camera, but they will have an effect on your overall confidence and comfort. We suggest opting for comfortable loafers or slides, paired with AMEN X Leeroy Jason leggings or designer sweatpants.
- Hair And Makeup Are Still Required
Just like any other professional event, you need to ensure that your hair and makeup are flawless. We
recommend a bold lip and brows with natural and glowing skin. Avoid using fake lashes and hyper-pigmented eyeshadows.
When it comes to hair there are many different styles that you can play with. Think sleek low or high buns,
neatly plaited dreadlocks, curly and coiled afros, or bone straight blowouts – go for whatever hairstyle you feel comfortable with, as long as it is presentable and polished.
- Add Accessories
If you’re going to wear accessories, keep them understated and modest like Adele Dejak’s Cosmi earrings and Cloe ring. Avoid accessories that will cause distraction or that will make you look too casual. In other words, steer clear of wearing beanies, hats, oversized scarves, or any attention-grabbing, statement jewellery.
