Never has how we look on our top halves ever been so important! As lockdown changes the way we work and socialise, it also has us rethinking our wardrobe and style! Loungewear suddenly became the go-to outfit of choice for 7 days a week, blurring the work day’s office look with our weekend day off look! 

However, with “working from home” gradually becoming the new norm for so many of us, it’s time to rethink how we dress to allow the comfort of being at home all day but ensuring the professionalism of our job titles!

Here at Give as you Live Online, conference calls are now the main form of communication with our team. The great thing about dressing for conference calls is you can get away with wearing your trusty pyjama bottoms and fluffy bunny slippers down below and no one will know....just don’t get up for the loo mid-call!

So, here are my top tips to ensure your square box image amongst the conference call attendees looks the best it can by nailing “conference call chic”!

The Blazer

The quickest way to change your casual top half to a smarter look is by adding a blazer. The great thing about the blazer is it neatly sits over a blouse, t-shirt, or relaxed dress to give you an immediately polished appearance as you sit down to take the call! To avoid appearing on the call bright red and flustered from a mad jacket hunt and dash prior to your call I suggest having 1 or 2 to hand on the back of your chair! Here are my current faves:

The Blouse

Blouses have moved on from stuffy square masculine shapes and now come in the gorgeous shape of pussy bows and puff shoulders, making them the perfect feminine conference call piece! It could be the simplest of patterns but the bow detail at the front, or the dramatic sleeves from the shoulder, give it perfectly positioned detail for maximum style impact on the call! Here are my faves:

The Dress

The fashion trends are on our side right now with the dress of the moment being breezy and full of volume - the ultimate in comfort whilst you glide around the house nailing your chores but still look smart for when you sit down for your millionth conference call of the day! The best thing of all is it can be your favourite length from cute mini through to full-on maxi dress but no one will ever know as it’s all about what’s happening up top! Here are my picks:
