Working from home has its pros and cons. A considerable advantage is that you can wear pretty much whatever you want and be as comfortable as possible. On the other hand, you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed to take that Zoom call, so something in between is the perfect style compromise.
The innate informality of a video conference may have you skip the suit and tie, but a casual shirt will do wonders for your on-screen appearance.

For those unfortunate hair days – or those days where you just haven’t hot the shower yet – a good cap will save the day without looking too informal.
