Celebrating St Nicholas Days over Zoom
Dressing up for a Zoom family meeting can be fun. Even if you’re alone at home, what to wear to a virtual St Nicholas toast should feel special. Make sure you look your best, at least from the waist up. You can choose a festive silk top, a blouse with statement sleeves in red hues for example. Also, many designers as Moschino, Paco Rabanne and Ganni, among others, are bringing back super cool t-shirts. They are the perfect option for a more relaxed look but still festive if you paired them with golden necklaces.
