Well readers, here we are in October 2020, contemplating the current focus of Zoom and Google meetings instead of going into the office or travelling to conferences. How will such a forum effect your wardrobe choices?
So taking notice of the media requirements and above the waist formatting let us banter around some inspirational thoughts for expanding your wardrobe for the above the waistline perspective.
Each of you has a familiar and known style of work wardrobe sense for business attire, which matches
your level of comfort and professional dress code.
VARIATIONS ON THE TRADITIONAL SUIT LOOK
Begin with body neutral under garment. Camisole or Sleeveless top.
Strong Solid color blouse with long sleeves.
Purple, green, yellow, pink, blues or Pastel colors or neutrals
Add a Kimono, shrug, buttonless wrap Suit jacket with single, double breasted buttons
Contrasting colors from top Greys, Navy blue, Tans
Add a large scarf with brooch to hold the knot in place, because you do not want the scarf to swing in the camera. The brooch/pin can be vintage or contemporary including crystals, silver or gold tone with pearls.
Or instead of a scarf, add a necklace
VARIATIONS ON THE THEME
Patterned or lacey camisole Lacey or patterned blouse neutral colors
Flowered jacket , velvet jacket Tweed jacket. Add an enhancing color compared to the jacket.
Beaded jacket or sweater Two tone jacket, herringbone jacket, Mix and match the colors, layers. Add a large brooch to the lapel of the jacket
Large chunky necklace & earrings Delicate look- silver, gold chain necklace,
No scarf needed for looks with necklaces.
Embroidered blouse & sweater Solid color coat dress.
Please note that I did not mention black jackets nor bright red jackets, as in the camera world
those colors come out looking the same- black. And in addition, a stark white outfit may recede into the wall, if that wall is painted white.
The combinations of mixing and matching pieces of clothing are endless. Have fun trying different combinations.
