It is now that time in the semester when keeping up with our professors becomes as important as keeping up with Vogue or even Perez. With projects, presentations, and infinite waves of midterms, making sure the professor knows where we stand as students has never been more crucial. We all know the heart-in-your-throat feeling too well. Walking up ten flights of stairs with a sweat-dampened list of questions in you hands, hoping there is some way to attain the grade during the blink of an eye known as“office hours”. It’s a daunting experience, to say the least. But if you wear the right outfit, you can carry yourself assuredly and make a long-lasting impression.
This Fashionista did a fabulous job of mixing personality with professionalism. Her tie-dye skinnies are the focal point of the outfit. While usually, the instinctive choice would be to pair this a bold statement with casual pieces for a day with friends, this Fashionista fabulously went the other way. She added a soft ruffled blouse and balanced it with denim jacket. Underneath, a layer of tweed peeks out to add some texture,and fashion bloggers everywhere would approve this classy detail. But what really brings out the studiousness in this outfit is the thick belt. It has enough structure to synch the layers together and make the assortment of textures more deliberate and put-together. This is great for meeting with a professor because not only do they get to visually see your personality in this canvas of details, it also makes you memorable to them.
Comfort contributes to confidence, and this Fashionista’s floral flats exude ease. Many Fashionistas make it a point to stay away from mixing patterns. But the key here, to make the outfit cohesive, is to choose patterns with a similar color scheme. It will help create to a put-together look. A professor will not only see you as a student with a vibrant personality, but the details of the outfit will be sure to make you stand out the rest of the day as well.
Another important idea to keep in mind when dressing to meet with a professor is one that Fashionistas often overlook. It’s so much easier to slap on a top-knot and jet to class, but taking some time to create a neatly styled “down-do” can really make an impression. The goal is to look as organized and studious as you know you are inside. With a clean and curled hair-do like this Fashionista’s, that goal can definitely be achieved.
This is the time in the semester when making a up close and personal impact on a professor is what really matters. So be sure to show off your individuality and bring plenty paper of good vibes along with you. The fate of this semester is in your hands and just like any outfit, can simply be pulled off with confidence!
One Simple Change: This Fashionista cleverly layered her top with tweed and denim. But for no-hassle night out with friends, she could swap those out for a lacy lapelled jacket.
