As the summer gets closer and the semester come to a close most students who live on campus head home. For most of them they will need to replace their on campus job that helped supply them with just enough money to go out with friends or order take out through out the week. Some may look for jobs at the mall working in food or retail, others may try and find corporate jobs. Wherever the place may be, you still need to be able to look the part.
This Fashionisto had just left our on campus career fair in his classic all-gray attire. He wore gray dress pants with a lightly striped blazer paired with a crisp white button-down shirt underneath. His tie is what sparked my interest in his look because most people say not to mix and match prints, but in his case it works. His striped neutral color tie looked very professional, but at the same time still showed his inner Fashionisto. Taking risks sometimes in fashion can end up a total failure, but not for him this time around.
New jobs can be exciting; meeting new people and learning new things, all while collecting a paycheck. But you have to remember to always look the part. Most jobs will have a dress code for you to follow and I recommend you do so. Adding your own personal touches to your work attire is usually encouraged but make sure to stay within the boundaries. Sometimes less really is more, and then other times more may possibly be better. I’ve personally learned that it is always better to be told you are overdressed than underdressed for any occasion. Besides when you feel your best, you are most likely to always be dressed to impress.
