Back to (Online) School Wardrobe Essentials 2020

McMaster students might not physically be going to campus this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get dressed up for class! Keep reading to be in the know about all the must-haves so you can attend your Zoom classes in style and comfort...and impress that cutie in your History lecture while you’re at it.

  1. 1. The two piece set that is the ultimate catfish

    As dull as Zoom classes are, they can have their perks. The fact that the professor and your classmates will only see your upper half on camera is a huge one! Take advantage of this and opt for the comfiest DIY two piece set you will ever wear – a blouse on top, and your favourite pajama bottoms. This set is the epitome of class and comfort. Wake up late for a class? No worries! Quickly throw on a nice top and keep those pajama bottoms on to save time. Not to mention, you’ll feel warm and comfy all day long, and your professor will be none the wiser. You could be wearing jeans for all anyone knows.

  2. 2. The classic comfort outfit

    Sweatpants Against A Wall

    This ensemble is something many of us are all too familiar with, even when in-person classes are in session. We’ve all thrown on the sweatpants and sweatshirt when we just don’t feel like getting dressed up to go to class. It’s fitting that this will now be an acceptable outfit every day of the week. You might just have to restock the sweatpants section of your wardrobe!

  3. 3. The “Suit-jamas”

    If you’re accustomed to dressing up every day to go to class and you need to add that extra something to your outfits to stay motivated, this is just the ensemble for you. Channel your inner Barney Stinson and buy yourself a pair of these legendary suit-jamas (for all you non-How I Met Your Mother fans out there, Barney refuses to step foot anywhere without being “suited up”). These silk pajamas look just like a suit!  It might be time to invest in a pair of these...they’ll even come in handy when attending your online office meetings in the future. 

  4. 4. This comfortable trend

    One of the greatest things about current fashion is that a lot of trend-setters are opting for more comfortable pieces – no complaints here! One of the biggest trends lately has been oversized graphic tees, so if you already have a collection of them, you’re in luck. This comfy trend is perfect to wear to your online classes. If you don’t own many graphic tees, not to worry. Check out the men’s section at any thrift store and you’re bound to find the perfect oversized tee.

It’s definitely disappointing that the 2020-21 school year is online, but don’t let that get in the way of your shopping fun. Don’t forget – there are no dress codes when it comes to a Zoom class!
