When working from home started, many thought that they can go casual all the way, that is, be loungewear even wear pajamas during the 8-hour workday. Then meetings began to be held at Zoom, Skype and Facetime. And voila, the dual wardrobe of working from home was born!
With social distancing and shelter in place orders expected to last at the earliest April 30th and the latest till June 30th, we still have to plan what to wear to work while at home!
Thankfully, we don’t have to look far. Team Karl has got you covered. Brick & mortar stores might be closed, but karllagerfeldparis.com is open 24 hours and USPS continues to deliver.
For Video conferencing Days – Working from Home
Whether you’re using Zoom, Skype or Facetime, video conferencing days mean dressing up to the nines. Aside from the fact that your workmates will see you, there is also that inset screen in the video conference software that you can see yourself.
So, unless you want to stare at yourself not properly styled the whole duration of the meeting which can last for a few hours, it is a good move to dress up.
For video conferencing days, Karl Lagerfeld Paris recommends tweed! Yes, tweed, that icon of traditional Scottish and Irish clothing, being desirable for informal outerwear but has gained popularity through the years for office wear.
Why tweed? It’s because this look will make a statement – “I might be WFH but I am still serious about work.” Now, if you follow the adage of “don’t dress better than your boss,” chances are your boss can afford Chanel hence wearing a Karl Lagerfeld Paris is not competing with her just saying, “I look good in tweed too.”
