What to wear when presenting online

Updated: Mar 25

Not sure what to wear for an online meeting or presentation?

Whether you're presenting a webinar, a masterclass, an online course or just have an important meeting - the first thing people see is you, so it's important you look the part.

You want to make it as easy as possible for people to focus on your content and message as well as get a feel for who you are. 

Here's my top 10 styling tips to help you look and feel your best when presenting online.

1. Solid, block colours in medium/medium-high value look best.

They are easy for your audience to focus on and make you stand out. Think blues, reds, pinks, greens, purples, oranges, yellows etc. The green below is in a medium value and is enough so that I stand out without being overwhelming.

2. Prints can be too distracting and tiring to look at.

The below print was too busy for camera, so avoid these at all costs. They not only distract from what you are saying, they are also tiring for your audience to look at, especially if it's a 45 or 60 minute presentation. Subtle prints work can work but I recommend testing it first. You also want to avoid wearing pinstripes, houndstooth or any repetitive pattern because they will strobe on camera.
