Elevate your Video Meeting Fashion with These Tips

For many of us, our homes have become our office while people and businesses across the world work together in efforts to flatten the curve of the coronavirus.  

Staying in one place for a long period of time can make dressing for the day a little boring, especially when you’re not seeing any people.  However, for the times you have a video-conference call scheduled with coworkers or your boss, it’s an opportunity to add some unique style to your comfortable attire.

Here are three simple tips to enhance your relaxed outfits at home.

Add a blazer or jacket 

A blazer and a jacket are classic pieces to wear in a professional setting, and they also add structure to casual outfits out of the office — with that said, you can elevate your t-shirt and leggings in the time it takes you to walk from your closet to your living room by throwing on one of these fashionable staples.

Shine with a pop of jewelry 

There is something about a shimmering piece of jewelry that lifts a person’s spirit and makes them feel ‘golden!’ 

In just a couple of minutes, you can add some sparkle to your cozy wear by layering some necklaces…

…. or make a statement with some funky earrings.
