11 accessories to up your Zoom game
So you might be sitting down for this one – that’s not going to stop you from standing out...

The fridge-freezer is in shot, last night’s leftovers still strewn across the kitchen counters, but sitting on the other side of the camera – I’m sorry but I can’t help but notice – is you.
And no, this is no Joe from Netflix’s ‘YOU’ moment. Only you look so, well, where is that accessory from? How did you style that?
Whether it be to impress your boss on your work call, dressing up for girls’ night or making an effort for that hot Zoom date you have, with the serious accessory skills you have on camera, nobody will even think to notice the fleecy PJ bottoms you have going on under the table.
The Work Call
Let’s start with the sparkly hairclip, which will make the big boss look your way for sure. But don’t fret – keep your cool by pairing it with a matching chunky hoop earring and you’re looking sophisticatedly understated enough to shine just around the time it’s your turn to chip into the convo.
Tie these accessories together with a poplin collar – a favourite often worn by This Morning’s Holly Willoughby – over a blouse with a nice neckline, and leave all your colleagues asking: ‘Hey, who’s the new girl?’
Staying in with a Zoom quiz is the new going out, so you’re gonna wanna make a statement before those first few glasses of Chardonnay start making everything a little hazy.
Totally on-trend, try a statement earring like these mini heart lollipops – if you look online I can promise you can find anything hanging from a hook. You want mini Actimel’s as earrings? You got it.
Woo the gals by then pairing the colour of your earrings with a few matching hair clips, splashing dashes of colour all over the camera. Don’t stop there either, and match an understated shirt with an over-cute neckline. Finally, give your eyes a little pop with a couple of falsies, and be certain that at least these lashes won’t end up on the middle of the dancefloor as per-usual.

This time you really don’t want to be blending into the background. Don’t worry, we’ve got you.
Sit back and start off with a layered, chunky necklace which is sure to deck out your decolletage. Don’t wear glasses? That doesn’t matter – go for the Dierdre Barlow look with a pair of fashion glasses that any Corrie viewer is sure to praise.
Lastly, tie up a cute headscarf/headband for that boho chic look. And if the date doesn’t go as planned? At least you can switch the headband into a cute mask to run to the store and grab a bottle of wine for one – yes please!
