If you can do it for the ’gram, you can certainly elevate your look for your video calls.
Layne Postilion is probably your best source for lively pieces for your body and home. The owner of Endora Bohemian in Douglas stocks her shop with jewelry, rugs and kimonos that will have everyone tricked into believing you picked them up during far-off travels. Her well-curated storefront has a host of eccentric and rare pieces — ideal for grabbing the spotlight during work Zoom sessions.
Besides, your style should deliver confidence and make you come alive, in person and on the screen.
“It’s about feeling good about something that’s on you,” Postilion said, explaining how that decision to wear feel-good items brings you energy. “One thing begets another, so clothes that feel like pajamas and are comfortable can be a cute and feel-good win.”
As we work from home, video calls like Zoom are the new norm. Postilion knows “you still want to be seen and validated, and earrings can visually remind people that you’re creative or that you have an opinion.” From bold necklaces and earrings to sparkling snake barrettes, Postilion has Zoom-worthy accessories that make you stand out.
Endora Bohemian has adult headbands with a ’50s vibe to them that are wider, with fun prints — which will draw attention to your face. Speaking of your face: The shop has an all-natural skincare line created by a woman who’s a cancer survivor, so you know she’s picky about ingredients.
“When I’m on Zoom, I don’t want to look tired or puffy,” Postillon said. The Violets are Blue line is a great self-care item.”

Another way to look instantly pulled together is with a trendy topknot hairstyle. This over-the-top bun is chic — and Christina Oropeza from Curate & Co. in Kalamazoo has just the thing to spice it up:
Hair bows in summery silk, chiffon, and linen can fit into a topknot for a cute and professional visual. The solid colors and tiny floral print bows allow you to “show personality and a sense of style virtually. It’s a way to put in a personal touch.”
In a major pinch because you’ve just been added to a last-minute Zoom? Bring color into the picture by wearing a bold red lipstick shade or a feminine pink hue. It delivers a brightness and keeps all eyes on what you’re saying.
