Just because you’re sitting in front of a computer opening and closing tabs all day, doesn’t mean that you cant strut your stuff. Think of the 50% of you that appears on your webcam; just waiting to be dressed to the nines
Depending on who you ask, the shift to a virtual workplace is either a breath of fresh air or a prison sentence with a webcam. As a college student fighting my way through online classes, I live in the sweet spot of extending my sleep to just before class but waking up early enough that I still have time to grab a coffee. However, I think we can all agree that we could do without the productivity shame that comes with having your domicile double as your office, and the other side effects of working virtually. But why not make the best of it? For the fashionable throwing together a meticulously selected outfit is practically the whole motivation to get out of bed. Although it’s tempting to soak in the same pair of sweatpants each day, don’t let constant Zoom calls be a reason to throw in the fashion towel.
Wasit-up dressing dates all the way back to the 1930s, as beautifully exhibited in this Vouge article, so we could presume that the pandemic has ignited a renaissance of sorts. The mission statement is doing the most with what you’re given; jewelry is a must-have to spice things up above the shoulders. As far as accessories go, a pair of frames to protect your eyes from the constant blue light is a no-brainer, but a shimmering necklace or a pair of tasteless earrings can act as your statement piece. Jewelry lovebirds David Yurman have all the bases covered for this fall season. Gemstone adornment classics like the “Pearl Chain Drop” earrings can pair with any flashy or lowkey outfit, while the brave “Tassel Necklace” is sure to make your coworkers peak twice at their computer screens. In an interview with Mint designers, Mohit Rai and Akshay Tyagi both agreed that necklaces, earrings or bracelets: “go a long way in helping the overall look come together.”.
It’s not hard to admire someone who pays attention to someone who puts effort into presenting themselves. Don’t let the fact that you are stuck inside your house keep you from showing everyone your unique sense of style that’s been crafted over the years. Even if you could never muster up the bravado to sport a necklace or earnings in the past, let the online barrier be your stepping stone to experimentation. The best part about it is that they’ll never know that you’re pairing that stunning necklace with a pair of grey sweats.
