Well, with the so-called “Zoom University” back in session for most of us, and continued work/social meetings hosted through Zoom, I figured it was about time I share some ideas on looking your best during video calls.

I initially planned this post around looking put-together and professional for an important virtual interview (or work call), but these tips are just as applicable for everyday online school, or even your virtual social events.

I took a poll on Instagram last week asking if you still wanted to see back-to-school content this year, given how uncertain the fall semester is looking… And the majority voted yes! But instead of just posting generic college content, I want to do my best to provide useful blog posts that acknowledge the weirdness of the upcoming academic year. So my first thought? A post about packing a light wardrobe for college during this pandemic! While I had already decided I was finally going to pack less clothing this year (my parents scoffed in disbelief when I told them), my university recently announced that students should only pack the essentials anyway.
