Introduction to Zoom Meeting Outfits
Whether you like working from home or not, the pandemic has made remote work the norm for most people now. There are pros and cons to it for everyone, but one of the upsides is having a little more leeway in what you can wear while working.
Before COVID, you may have needed a strictly professional look for the office, but now you can likely swing business casual apparel.
For your bottom half, you might even be able to get away with PJs! Here are some of our top picks for comfy, yet dressy tops that you can confidently wear on your next Zoom meeting.
Soft, Button Up Blouses
Button up, collared blouses have long been a traditional top that can be worn in a professional setting, but the material a blouse is made from really makes or breaks the comfort factor.
We are all familiar with blouses made from stiff fabric that wrinkles easily. When searching for the perfect button-up blouse to wear at home for a Zoom meeting, look for soft, stretchy materials like cotton, knits, polyester, cotton-spandex, nylon blends, and stretch velvet. Add a delicate necklace, and you’re ready to lead a meeting.
If you work in an office that often has a constant chilly temperature, you know the comfort of wrapping up in a soft, warm cardigan very well.
Cardigans can be open front or button-up and some feature pockets that are perfect for keeping your cell phone handy.
Cardigans can be super casual, but they can also have a professional and business casual look. They pair well with any dressy top and just give you the option to layer up.
They’re like a security blanket for stylish adults. They were excellent for the office, and they’re still a great choice for working from home.
Take a look at these trendy cardigans by Charming You Boutique. Choose neutral colors to be able to mix and match them with your entire wardrobe.

Granted, not all sweaters are business casual and Zoom meeting appropriate. We’re not saying wear your ugly Christmas sweater, even though it might be around the holidays.
Opt for sweater styles that incorporate dressy details like cowl necklines, button-up fronts, unique knit accents, and other embellishments that elevate them to a fancier level.
Dressy sweaters are going to be soft, warm, and comfy, just like their casual counterparts. Subdued colors to brighter, flashier tones can all be appropriate for a Zoom meeting. Check out Charming You Boutique’s fall/winter sweater essentials!
Ruffle It Up
Ruffles are in this season and they add the dressy factor to plain, mono-colored tops. A simple long-sleeved, short-sleeved, round neck or scoop neck tunic can really have pizzaz after the addition of ruffles.
You’ll often find ruffles on the sleeves, but they may also run down either side of the front of the shirt. Ruffle shirts usually don’t need any special care or ironing.
You can just toss them in the washer and dryer and have a quick throw-on option for a Zoom meeting. You can find them made in soft, comfortable materials, and they may just become your new favorite go-to for working from home.
It may be a while before our lives truly get back to normal again. Businesses are likely to continue to have employees work remotely and social distancing will probably hang around for a long time.
If you haven’t updated your work wardrobe for Zoom yet, now is a good time to do so. You’ll thank yourself when you’re ultra-comfy and relaxed for that next Zoom meeting.
