For a video call, you only have to worry about dressing from the waist up, which is fantastic! I'd recommend wearing a top that's consistent with what you wear to the office. For ladies, I suggest slipping on a blouse, sweater, or cardigan and no cleavage. Men should throw on a button-down shirt or sweater.

Outfits to look good on video calls while working remotely amid Coronavirus

Neutral colors are best for video conference calls because you are being seen in such a small space. So stick to solid, soft colors, and pastels. Folks should steer clear of busy patterns, bright colors, and black because they give a weird optical effect on-camera. That also includes pure white because it appears very bright on camera.
