    2. This cult-favourite dry shampoo from Living Proof that'll help jazz up your locks when someone wants to video chat and you haven't had a shower yet. Just a few spritzes of this baby will actually clean your hair and give it some bodacious volume.

    Get it at Sephora Canada for $19+ (available in three sizes and ten shades).

    7. This multi-strand choker with teeny silver droplets that makes achieving that layered look easier than ever. Struggle no more choosing the right necklaces — this one has three strands and an adjustable length, so it's perfect every time.

    Mejuri / Via

    I'm obsessed with this necklace. It looks just as good when it's fastened close to the neck, as it does when you let it sit nearer to the collarbone.

    Get it at Mejuri for $95 (also available in gold).

    8. This luxe split-hem top that's made specifically to keep you comfortable, no matter what you're doing. It's perfectly sleek for that big Zoom meeting, but also quickly adapts to your fave exercise class. It's soft and breathable, too, so you can wear it all day long.

    Lululemon / Via

    You can also knot the front if it's getting in the way.

    Get it at Lululemon for $98 (available in sizes 0-12 and in two colours).

    9. These skinny silk scrunchies that'll turn even the messiest bun into a sleek updo. They won't pull or snag, and are extra gentle on hair, too! And you can also say goodbye to those annoying kinks you get after wearing your hair up all day.

    @slipsilkpillowcase / Via

    TBH, they're one of the only things that could convince me to grow out my pixie cut.

    Get it at Skinstore for $55.77 (available in three colour combinations).

    10. This blemish-banishing treatment that'll help bust breakouts in time for your Google Hangouts call. It's so effective that some reviewers have noticed results in as little as one hour. It even helps prevent future pesky pimples from happening!

    11. This Fenty Beauty setting powder that's like a blurring filter in makeup form. It'll reduce shine, and cloak almost all imperfections, so you can look video-chat-ready in mere moments. Thanks to its silky texture, you'll never look cake-y or dull, either!

    @fentybeauty / Via

    Get it at Sephora Canada for $24+ (available in two sizes and in eight shades).

    12. This buttery-soft long sleeve crop that's expertly tailored and light as air for easy layering. It hits right at the natural waistline, so it's incredibly flattering on all body types, and pairs well with this season's high-waisted bottoms (or your fave pair of sweatpants).

    Lou & Grey / Via

    It's so comfortable, you'll never want to take it off.

    Get it at Lou & Grey for $39.50 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in four colours).

    13. This pearl bar cuff that adds an unexpected dimension to your earring game. Like other cuffs, this one doesn't require any piercings, but still looks incredible. It's as easy as slipping it onto the top of your ear. It doesn't clip or cuff on, so it won't crush 'em.

    http://@adinas.jewels / Via

    Since it's made of imitation pearl, you won't have to worry about wearing it all day either (real pearls can collect skin's oils and get murky). You can shop the rest of the pictured look here.

    Get it at Nordstrom for $76.06.

    14. This fleecy vest that can be worn with literally every outfit. Reviewers say it's the perfect piece to pull together just about any look, and keeps them comfortable and warm (without overheating).

    Anthropologie / Via

    The drapey fabric means you can also wrap it around your neck.

    Get it at Anthropologie for $59.95 (available in eight colours).

    15. This dermaplaning tool that'll help eliminate peach fuzz and remove rogue eyebrow hairs. You'll looking camera-ready in no time — and since there's no hot wax, tweezing, or threading involved, your skin won't be red or irritated, either!

    @hollywoodbrowzer / Via

    Dermaplaning is also a great way to exfoliate your skin, leaving you with a smooth, radiant complexion. It also makes short work of upper lip hair, too, if that's part of your routine.

    Get a set of two at Skinstore for $28.60 (also available individually).

    16. This luminous sheer blur stick that creates a perfect canvas for all your makeup. But it's fantastic solo, too — just one swipe can drastically diminish the appearance of large pores. You're left with a glowing, soft-matte finish that'll translate beautifully on camera.

    @milkmakeup / Via, Sephora Canada / Via

    And since it's in solid form, application is a breeze!

    Get it at Sephora Canada for $24+ (available in two sizes).

    17. An oversized knit blazer that'll amp up any look. Looking for a chic topper for that tee you've been wearing all week? Done. Want something to pair with your fave joggers? Done. Belt it, roll up the sleeves, dress it up with chunky jewellery — this baby does it all.

    Dynamite / Via

    It's made of a flexible, stretchy knit that won't pull at the elbows and will give you plenty of room to move (even if it's just from the couch to the kitchen).

    Get it at Dynamite for $35.97 (available in sizes XXS-XL).

    18. This ear hook stud that's basically a beautiful optical illusion. The slim hook doesn't crowd your ear lobe, either, so it won't interfere with your other piercings. It's a simple, elegant way to upgrade your ear stack.

    Mejuri / Via

    Plus, it's mounted on a simple post — no more fiddling with complicated earring designs.

    Get it at Mejuri for $60 (also available in gold).

    19. This fermented green tea face mist that'll quench your parched skin faster than you can say, "Holy cow, that's refreshing!" I keep a bottle of it in my nightstand, AND a bottle in my purse so I can keep that K-beauty glow going all day long.

    Victoria Kuglin / Via BuzzFeed

    I adore this spray — it has an ultra-fine mist that feels fantastic and refreshing, without feeling like you're hosing yourself down.

    Get it at Skinstore for $18.59.

    20. This NARS lip balm in cult-fave shade Orgasm, that not only nourishes your pout (thanks, antioxidants!), but also imparts a subtle, soft wash of colour.

    @narsissist / Via, @narsissist / Via

    Each of the seven shades is designed to be universally flattering, too, so go ahead and experiment.

    Get it at Sephora Canada for $37 (available in seven shades).

    21. This slouchy thermal that's gently distressed and oh-so comfortable — but don't fret, because it still has plenty of video conference clout! The neckline is flattering without being too revealing, and slightly baggier sleeves help keep you comfy when you've been chained to your computer all day.

    Free People / Via

    It tucks easily into your jeans for a smart casual outfit, and makes a great lightweight sweater in the summer. Wrap it around your shoulders to achieve a cute, preppy look!

    Get it at Free People for $96.56 (available in sizes XS-L and in two colours).

    22. These oversized hoops that are entirely office-appropriate (while still looking cool as hell). It's time to upgrade your favourite high school look to something a bit more polished — and these disc-like earrings are just the ticket!

    Jenny Bird / Via

    The high-shine finish is extremely eye-catching, too, so prepare for plenty of compliments when everyone logs on.

    Get a pair at Jenny Bird for $86.25 (also available in gold).

    23. And lastly, these rose gold aviators that are so sleek and chic, I'm adding them to my cart as we speak. You'll look studious, polished, AND professional. Plus, statement frames can help you feel put-together, even if you're feeling anything but.

    @warbyparker / Via

    Aviators are a classic for a reason, and these gilded ones bring the style into 2020.

    Get them at Warby Parker for $225+ (available in two colours).
