Dressing for Video Conferencing

Most of us have seen only the top half of most of the newsreaders and many of them have earned the admiration for how well they present the news as well as how they dress and present themselves while they are on air. For all we know, they might be wearing extremely comfortable sweatpants below their waist, but what they show to the world is a crisp and sharply dressed journalist! No one imagined a day would come when a major part of the world will be working and schooling from home and most of us are attending several video conferences a day. But unlike the newsreaders, many of the regular people’s video conferencing videos are going viral for various glitches such as their kids entering the room from behind or people unaware that they are on video. They are dressing themselves up before the conference is due to start, but there are also many memes being generated where they even show that they have an official look above the waist and a totally casual from below.

Well funny stuff aside, as we plunge deep into quarantine the more the world is relying on apps like Zoom and Google Meet to conduct video conferencing, be it schools, offices, or even a doctor’s consultation. Hence most of us are now sailing in very unfamiliar territory. Earlier we had a routine, we would get up, get ready and head to the office. Now the office is at home, so for many, it is confusing. Many even appear online with bad hair or an unshaven face or even in a nightdress. But remember that you are still working, and there is the same etiquette to follow as to when you were going to work or school. Here are some suggestions on dressing for a video conference.
