Recently, Jem decided to share with the internet her hilarious fashion experiment using the platform TikTok. In a series of clips, the 33-year-old showed off a blue Hawaiian shirt with flowers and pineapples, claiming she had rocked it for hundreds of Zoom meetings in the past 15months.
Jem, 33, wore a Gap shirt she purchased in 2018 to all of her Zoom meetings which started on April 2, 2020.
The intern rocked the shirt for meetings with her internal team and the board of directors.
The American woman admitted that no one ever commented on her outfit repeats, adding that when she finally spilled the tea to her team on her last day of work, they were utterly stunned. Who wouldn’t have been? “When I told my team that I had been wearing the same shirt, they didn’t know what I was talking about. They hadn’t noticed.” Jem said in the clip.
Wearing it, again and again, meeting after meeting, it totaled 264 meetings.

Jem had purchased the shirt from Gap in 2018 and had worn it to her first pandemic video meeting on April 2nd, 2020. She went on to wear it again and again, meeting upon meeting, and so far, it has totaled 264 video meetings. Since she wore it over and over, Jem revealed there were occasions where someone would sight her in the same shirt days in a row and still said nothing.
“When I told my team that I had been wearing the same shirt, they didn’t know what I was talking about.”

Jem, who had worked as an Intern, added: “Literally wore this shirt to every single meeting with my internal team, external folks, and the board of directors. I recorded webinars posted on our website, and no one knew what I was talking about. They truly had no idea.” Her clips have gone viral and garnered incredible responses from other TikTokers. A few people have dubbed Jem’s action as epic and hilarious.
Jem’s team truly had no idea.

“Now, this is performance art! Well done!” One user commented. Some TikTokers pointed out that it should serve as a lesson to people who worry that people care about what they wear to work. “Well, I’m not gonna stress anymore about my expansive seven shirts/5day rotation.” Another added. In your opinion, how do you see Jem’s single-item work wardrobe?
