Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.
As millions of people around the globe go into lockdown, we must spare some thought for how we are going to turn our daily routines digital. Not only this, but we must look for ways to stay motivated as we prepare to spend the next few months milling around the same four walls.
Aside from benefiting humanity at large, a hiatus from your long-list of social obligations brings with it fewer real-time opportunities for you to show off your new jawnz, and stunt on all your undeserving friends — undeserving of the fits you so carefully prepare for their viewing pleasure on a daily basis. Now however, stripped of your street side runway, you have to get creative and dress-to-impress from within the confines of your phone’s camera. What’s more, getting up and dressed is a great way to stay motivated, and an even better way to prove to your friends that you are really about that life.
Curator Noah Thomas believes the three pillars of any strong FaceTime Fit are its accessories, headwear, and printed tops. However, to avoid looking like you’re overdoing it, Noah advises picking a single category to hone in on. With that being said, we’ll let Noah take it away.
Click down below to shop a list of the best outfits to wear while on FaceTime to your friends.
adidas Tech Track Jacket
“A mock-neck is a nice move. It’s a subtle way to add some depth to the frame, and helps leave a little to the imagination, as it has your humble onlookers curious to know what the rest of the outfit is packing. This Tech Track Jacket from adidas model is ideal for building virtual suspense.”
Pleasures Andy Rayon Button Down
“Prints are a go-to when all you have to show are your shoulders. This shirt also flaunts a camp collar, which means you have a lot of real estate on which to rock a necklace. Knowing how to make the most of the space you have is a strong tool when you have so little of it.”
Stüssy Oversized Striped T-shirt
“Stüssy coming through with a cozy way of flexing on FaceTime while giving off pops of on-screen color. The oversized fit promises to be felt through video from how the shoulders fall over you. Perfect for letting everyone know you're playing with proportions in the crib, too.”
Vans Logo-Print Tie-Dyed Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt
“Make sure you’re pairing dark, simple items with this Vans T-shirt, and cement it as you fit’s the main source of color.”
Off-White™ Checker Box VA Cap
“Off-White™ is always guaranteed to spark excitement and conversation upon first sight. It's a piece to thrown on if you’ve been caught underprepared and need a quick hit flex move.”
'47 Los Angeles Dodgers Tie-Dye Baseball Hat
“Light wash tie-dye is a pretty underrated type of tie-dye compared to its vibrant counterparts. But that's what makes this hat have just the right amount of excitement for it to be noticed, without overpowering the entire conversation. Hit up Urban Outfitters for more great pieces like this.”
Sun Buddies Wesley Sunglasses
“You might be out on the patio, or in your backyard, and you might not have a shirt on... and you might need these Sun Buddies to complete the look. They have more than enough character to hold you down.”
Groover M & B Octagon
“If you want to pull off the whole sunglasses indoors thing, then make sure the lenses have a light-colored tint so they're not considered offensive. These Groovers are an ideal pair to base this logic off of.”
Martine Ali Silver Ant Choker
“The Silver Ant Choker from Martine Ali is the type of accessory you need to make a big statement with limited camera space. I would wear this with a scoop neck or tank so the focus is on the choker. Head over to SSENSE for more products like this, at a fraction of their original price.”
Alighieri the Lion and the Baroque Pearl Single Earring
“When you buy beautiful jewelry, it holds weight even if you are not physically with the people you are talking too. This single Alighieri pearl earring is a moment all the time.”
