Working From Home During the Covid-19 Pandemic: How You Need to Dress Up?

Updated: Apr 16

During the corona times, when the whole world is slowly being accustomed to the 'new normal' and seeking different ways to keep connected, stay working, and leads towards some sort of normalcy in life, honestly, there has been a clear switch in the way of how the work is done in this pandemic.

Seemingly, it is fairly safe to think that there is a 'zoom outfit' code and that could hardly suit your daily routine.

More or fewer mamas are restricted to attend the virtual meetings along with their babies on their laps, thanks to the pandemic. It is assumable that a bra is a requirement, but does a certain dress code exist for Zoom meetings?

Does a Dress Code Exist for a Virtual Meeting?

Office apparel has pretty much evolved over the years. Many firms favor casual dressing and only demand business apparel when meeting with customers. You must be well aware of the dress standards of your office to dress up for the virtual meetings. For example, if you wear a suit more often, then a jacket and tie are not necessary for your virtual meeting.

If you are hired in a more casual environment and you are in a conference with your team, you can probably take off your clean, sleek, non-wrinkled casual attire. Team meetings are more fun and interesting in T-shirts put on by team members. Casual wear is more recommended especially if the meeting is non-physical.

The business world, during the pandemic, as a whole is gradually shifting beyond determining a person's professionalism by the way they dress up, whether it is a dress shirt or a T-shirt.
