Your team is showing up a little too comfortable with what they wear when working from home.
If you’ve noticed that your team is:
- Not dressing as professionally as they used to,
- Showing up to web meetings in baseball hats, tank tops (or worse),
- Not as productive or focused as they used to be, and/or
- Prioritizing comfort vs. dressing for the job …
It’s affecting your bottom line.
And that’s just what you see.
Inside your team is likely bored with what they’re wearing, aren’t sure if they should dress professionally at home, are making comfort a priority, don’t feel as polished as they used to, and are second guessing their outfit choices. That affects how they show up for the job each day - whether it’s in person or virtually.
Showing up professionally still matters, and it influences how your teams present themselves, whether they’ll be focused for the day or not, and of course is a critical part of a first impression.
Even when working from home.
This was not as important before as being physically in the office created the framework for your team to focus in. And it created the environment for them to dress appropriately.
Because they were seen in person, it created the expectation that they need to dress for work. When that framework is no longer present, something else needs to take its place; therefore dressing professionally matters more now than before.
Your team can be empowered to create and design their own professional style that reflects who they are as individuals, whether working from home or in the office, and it doesn’t involve a corporate work-from-home dress code.
Having a polished style is not elusive or available only to certain people. Everyone can learn how to embody their style within the framework of a professional setting.
You definitely met my expectations.
"The most valuable part of the presentation was when you discussed the importance of dressing the part even when working from home."

Welcome to The Strategy of Style
This workshop provides the strategy for attendees to create a style for themselves so they can wear, with absolute confidence, more of what they own, build a wardrobe that authentically represents them and have a strategy they can apply to all areas of their lives - personal and professional. Confidence in any area of life shows up at work.
When your team dresses for the job, their performance improves, they are more focused, attentive, creative and more - all because they embody and become what they’re dressed to do.
This corporate style training teaches your team how to develop a work appropriate personal style that reflects individuality AND that doesn’t involve a formulaic approach to force them into the confines of specific dress codes.
This is an eye opening workshop as I’m integrating sustainability and style so they will learn why it matters that they wear more of what they own and how doing what’s right for the planet is also what’s great for their style.
She had a great personality for the group - Kept it light, but still seen as an authority.
“I hired Loren to speak to my team of 70 young professionals in a corporate setting. Not only did she bring important tips and link confidence to style - which is very important in business - but the team was much more engaged during her presentation than usual. Loren is a great speaker on top of being an incredible stylist.”

This workshop is gender agnostic and teaches universal guidance for menswear and womenswear.

Praise for the workshop
"Great reminder with intentional shopping and changing my view on second hand stores!"
"I'm totally in the mood to go to a thrift store right now. 🙂 I will create a Pinterest board and dig a little deeper about knowing myself. Thanks for the helpful tips and tricks!"
"I really enjoyed the class! I learned how to shop mindfully! I can hardly wait to put the ideas into practice!"
"Had no idea clothes are filling up our landfills, that was good information to keep in mind while shopping, great information, organizing my closet would be very helpful, overall a very good presentation with lots of information"
"I truly enjoyed the presentation. I wasn't sure what to expect, however, after the presentation, it opened my eyes to look at my clothes differently. Sort them by work, weekend, play, as opposed to shirts, jackets, sweaters, etc. Very informative and interactive."
- Sandra (attendee)
"My biggest take away is focusing on quality vs quantity as well as using the available secondhand shopping resources. It can be hard to commit to spending more money on something up front, but it really is worth it for pieces that will stay with me as my core pieces for quite some time instead of going for those cheaper items that will wear out quickly. I found the whole presentation really helpful. I have been guilty of not dressing fully for my work from home days so that is something that I am going to try to change. Thank you!"
