According to a business etiquette expert, Jacqueline Whitmore, “a winning digital image has become a professional imperative” and you should always “dress your best.”
Looking professional (at least from the waist up) for those important calls is crucial and professionally pressed shirts, ties, sportscoats, and blouses are a must.
“Your attire should be similar to (what you would wear) at an in-office meeting,” says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs, “Your appearance should still be professional and reflect the organization you work for”
