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. It comes as no surprise to anybody that Zoom is extremely unflattering, so I wanted to share a few tips and tricks to look just a *little* bit better on camera. 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 think we all can agree that Zoom University has been pretty interesting so far, don’t you think? It will definitely take some adjusting to get back into my usual school groove now that I’m still at home and classes are virtual. But with that said, I wanted to spend today’s blog post trying to convince you that you should still get dressed for your online classes, or virtual work, or anything else you’re doing while at home, even if you are just staying in your bedroom all day… Now I’m not saying you have to get completely dolled up—even I won’t be wearing blazers anytime soon—but I am asking that you at least swap the pajama pants for a pair of jeans or leggings. I know it’s crazy talk, but just hear me out. And of course, matching your outfit to your desk decor is completely optional. Continue reading “10 Reasons to Get Dressed for Online Classes”
