What to wear to work video calls with Superdry!

We’ve given up the daily commute to work, our pets are now our co-workers and we can eat whatever & whenever we want, at our desks during the day… welcome to the new world of working from home! Team meetings, checking in with your boss, virtual Friday drinks and catch up’s with your office mates, all via video conferencing, are now our new daily social routines.

So it’s worthwhile making sure you’re dressed appropriately and situated in the right working from home environment, to make the most of these opportunities to connect. So how exactly do you “dress for the job you want” when it’s so easy & tempting to stay in your pyjama’s all day? Read on for the new work video meeting style rules with Superdry!

Here is your style guide for the new age of video:

Sorry, pyjama’s don’t count – I know, I know, we’ve all heard this before, but it’s for a very good reason! Sleepwear during the day is a very bad idea for you & your mindset… plus your boss, your work colleagues and anyone you may have to see…this also extends to your partner, housemates, Uber eats delivery guy and the postman – who will all seriously begin to wonder if you have given up on life.

Do wear comfortable & well-fitting clothes – which translates as not too restrictive and too baggy. A button down shirt (Like this striped one), Henley or classic tee looks smart yet relaxed and won’t have your boss worried about your commitment to your career during video calls.

Don’t get caught in a style rut – mix it up and wear different styles. This is also the perfect time to try out something different in the safety of your own home! For women especially, make use of comfortable dresses, wide leg pants & snuggly knitwear, giving the corporate style fitted dresses & pencil skirts (and high heels) a rest. You can always pull these out when you return to the office! I love this Superdry cami t-shirt dress – the material is stretchy and the playful combo looks like you’ve put some thought into your daily style. For men, this is your hall pass to wear those shorts, casual slacks, cargo pants or the denim pieces you love, which you’re not allowed to wear during the usual Monday – Friday grind.

Do pay attention to fabric composition – cotton is always one of the most wearable fabrics – it’s a natural fibre which means it’s breathable and feels comfy to wear all day. This classic white tee from Superdry is perfect – not only does it feel super soft against the skin, it also looks ultra smart & put together and works well with any pair of pants or skirt.

Do invest in clothes that you are going to want to actually wear in the future – whilst “loungewear” is one fashion niche which will experience a boon over the next few months, don’t go overboard! Remember that to make the most out of any style purchases, you need to be smart by investing in pieces you actually love, which can be worn for seasons to come. These Frankie wide leg jeans are the perfect option as they hit the mark for comfort and will be a style staple you’ll reach for time & time again.
