Hi Liz and Sarah!
I just listened to this episode and the idea of Zoom meeting fashion got me thinking that we should turn to people who have a lot of experience dressing for sitting down – wheelchair users! I did a little googling and found the following tips that would apply to folks who do not use wheelchairs, as well:
-Try to wear something fitted in the waist. Sitting lends itself to looking frumpy, this can help mitigate that effect.
-Go for tops that are longer in the front. I would have guessed the opposite since that means more material over your tummy, but the bloggers I found say it helps smooth out any areas you don’t love in your midsection!
-Maintain good posture. Not exactly a fashion tip, but certainly effects how you look!
I do not use a wheelchair, so please take this light research with a grain of salt and talk to people with real life experience if you get the chance!
Here’s a couplearticles I found if you would like to learn more:
