A Virtual Wardrobe

by | Sep 28, 2020

The majority of your workday has gone virtual–but there’s still a dress code.

While your full set of pajamas isn’t appropriate for your daily Zoom call, most people are embracing the business on the top, comfort on the bottom idea. However, according to ladders.com, there are some things you should not be caught wearing during your next on-camera appearance.

For example, stripes. In person, a pinstripe suit or striped blouse is perfectly acceptable. But on camera, the small stripes can cause a strobe light affect and be distracting.

Another item to avoid–turtlenecks. If they’re a bright color, it won’t make you seem very professional. Plus, if you’re wearing a color that blends in with your background, you’ll come across as a floating head.

Speaking of a floating head, avoid a bright green shirt. All it takes is someone tech-savvy to superimpose whatever they want on your body.

For more items of clothing you should remove from your virtual wardrobe, go to ladders.com.

Might give you an excuse to do a little shopping.
