WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

What to Wear

The main point of going to college is to come out of it with a job. In order for this to happen, you must attend many career fairs in order to land your first interviews. This being said, make sure you attend all your career fairs in style.

When attending a career fair, you must always look your best. It is a good idea to stick with the business casual look, which is exactly what this Fashionista did. When dressing business casual, be sure to look classy and polished, without being too dressy.

This Fashionista is wearing a perfect outfit for a career fair. First, she is wearing a black and white patterened blazer. Blazers are essential to have throughout your job searching process. Not only are they good for career fairs, but they are also great for a banquet, interview, presentation or internship. It is also a good idea to have a blazer in black and beige, since they match with everything. When dressing business casual, it is ideal to stick with basic colors such as black and gray. Dressing in bright colors is frowned upon when you are talking to business professionals.

This Fashionista is also wearing a pair of skinny ankle jeans from Urban Outfitters. Black jeans are the perfect alternative to dress pants and are suitable for business casual attire. If you do not have black jeans, you can also wear a pair of dress pants. Similar to a blazer, having dress pants in neutral colors is the best way to go, such as black and gray.

Finally, this Fashionista is wearing a pair of black patent leather flats from Nordstrom. Flats are the best shoe for business casual. Wearing flats in either nude or black for a career fair is the best option. If you do not want to wear flats, you also have the option to wear heels or high heel boots. Whatever you do, avoid wearing flip flops, sandals or sneakers.

When you are searching for the best career for you, make sure you do it in style!

One Simple Change: By wearing a pair dress pants and heels, this outfit could be perfect or an interview or big presentation.
