Need zoom-worthy comfortable clothes that aren’t pajamas?
If someone told me a year ago that we would still be in a lockdown, I wouldn’t believe them. The biggest problem I hear clients convey is that they struggle to get out of their pajamas or only get ready from the waist-up. As tempting as it may be, this is a no-no from me, as it leads to decreased motivation and productivity. I want you to feel put together without feeling you need to try too hard.
The first step to finding zoom-worthy clothing is to look for fabrics that are comfortable and breathable. Linen is a great fabric to consider, as it is known as the world’s strongest natural fiber and is far more durable than cotton. Linen is also a lightweight, breathable, durable, and a thermoregulating fabric, which its properties fall at the top of the pyramid of comfortable clothing. Another fabric that will be great for the Springtime is cotton, as it's soft, breathable, and soaks up sweat, allowing heat to escape the body and for you to stay cool.
Sitting for hours behind a screen can be tiring. Ensure the pants you wear are breathable and have that extra stretch to it. Save your jeans for grocery shopping over the week, as jeans can be too tight to wear during work hours. Dressier joggers that come with an elastic band is a great way to still look professional and comfortable. No need to feel embarrassed if you ever stand up from a Zoom video call or if you forgot to turn your camera off when taking a washroom break. Dresses and jumpsuits are an easy, effortless way to look put together within minutes and great to wear during the Spring and Summer months.
