Be honest: have you been wearing pants lately?

As we embrace the Great Indoors and are staying home to practice social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s no denying that our style has significantly changed.

Most of us are wearing a lot more loungewear. Many of us are wearing a lot less makeup. And some of us have called it quits on certain items of clothing completely. This gallery is kind of for all three types of people.

Designed for those occasions when you do have to get social and show your face on Line, Zoom, Teams, or Skype, there’s an art to dressing from the waist up. After all, people can only see half of you on the screen. You could be a business discussion on the top and a not-so-much-business party on the bottom. Hey, at least you put on a shirt?

Jokingly and not really jokingly, here we’ve put together our cheekiest selections for half-dressing for that next big video call. Proceed at your own naked risk.
