From Zzz… to Zoom: Our Day to Night Outfit Staples

For the days when all you want to do is nap to the days when Zoom meetings take over, you need a comfortable dress or jumpsuit. 

Having comfortably chic 24/7 essentials ready to go makes getting dressed quick and easy. And we love that. 

But sometimes it’s hard to know what dresses and jumpsuits can swing both ways. When shopping online, there’s no way to tell how a certain fabric will feel on your body. And the number one essential for dresses that can go from day to night, ZZZ to Zoom is...softness. 


So, we asked our regular size fit model, Terri, if there were any dresses she instantly knew were going to fit the bill during her fittings. Afterall, she has tried on every single dress and jumpsuit we’ve ever made here at Connected Apparel! 


Read on to find out which comfortable dresses and jumpsuits Terri suggests and why!


For Becoming a Zoom Masterchef

"Wearing a comfortable jumpsuit is exactly what you need for what I like to call Kitchen Gymnastics."


“The Margot jumpsuit would be perfect for multitasking in the kitchen. Over the past year, I’ve done a lot of zoom cooking classes and found that I bend over a lot or am reaching in high cabinets, etc. So wearing a comfortable jumpsuit is exactly what you need for what I like to call Kitchen Gymnastics. It’s also a great day to night piece.”


For Tidying the House

"The pockets are so handy because I can carry my phone around instead of forgetting it in another room."


“I don’t know about you, but after a full day of tidying up the house (I live with my husband, daughter and 3 pets), I’m exhausted. And all I want to do afterward is lay on the couch in loungewear and watch TV. The new Raven dress is perfect for both things. The midi length is great because I don’t have to worry about bending over. And the pockets are so handy because I can carry my phone around instead of forgetting it in another room. Then when it comes to lounging, I feel so comfortable!”

For Leading An Important Work Meeting

"Gone are the days of needing to wear a smart, just-ironed work dress."


“Since so many people are working from home, I think the appropriate dress code for important video calls has changed. Gone are the days of needing to wear a smart, just-ironed work dress. I think a lot of women can get away with wearing a comfortable dress and adding eye-catching jewelry to style it. One thing that you definitely still need to do is have your shoulders covered and an appropriate sleeve length. So I think our Quinn dress with half sleeves is perfect! It’s buttery soft and can also go from day to night, desk to dinner!”


For Zoom Happy Hour with your Girlfriends

"I always find myself reaching for something bright and airy — like how I feel at that very moment!"


“When I think about upcoming plans to Zoom with my girlfriends, it always brings a smile to my face. It’s so nice to have technology that allows us to stay connected. So when I’m getting dressed up for these video calls, I always find myself reaching for something bright and airy — like how I feel at that very moment! Angela’s textured knit, loose fitting silhouette and floral print are everything I look for for these occasions.”

For Getting That Beauty Sleep 

"I could tell immediately that this was going to be a casual dress that our customers could wear year-round."


“What I love about this dress is that the a-line silhouette isn’t just flattering for so many different body shapes and sizes. But it also makes this casual dress roomy enough to be a nap dress too! I could tell immediately that this was going to be a casual dress that our customers could wear year-round.”


No matter how you spend your days, it’s important that you feel comfortable from AM to PM. We designed these Spring 2021 dresses and jumpsuits to be multifunctional, 24/7 essentials. 


Shop styles you can wear them from desk to dinner, day to night, awake time to nap time.
