WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

What to Wear

I know I’m not alone when it comes to being anxious and uncertain about what the future holds. These past undergraduate years have flown by and graduation will be knocking at my door at any moment. Yikes! I am constantly pondering if I will achieve my lifelong aspirations or if I will be inspired by something completely different down the road. Lucky for me and those of you who are struggling with a little thing called “life,” career fairs were created to inspire and guide us to our ultimate professional goals.

This Fashionista instantly struck me as a woman confident in the workplace. Her classy demeanor combined with her business like attire mastered a look fully prepared for attending a career fair. Her sheer navy striped blouse perfectly accomplished the balance of playful and polished. Instead of choosing a conventional button-down, this Fashionista opted to show personality opposed to being stuffy and uninteresting. At a career fair it is important to be professional, but showing a little individuality and personality helps to remain memorable in the minds of potential employers. The sheer and feminine material is dressed up with a structured collar and glamorous edgy gold buttons. The combination represents a hint of her unique personal style intertwined with more traditional business attire.

This style maven’s accessories are left simple and professional making sure to not distract from the real reason she is attending the career fair. Instead, the focus is on her skills at hand, and perhaps her gorgeous Louis Vuitton bag encasing all of her business essentials. Every young professional can benefit from a classic black tote. Along with the responsibility of graduation and finding a job, comes building a new wardrobe that is essential for the business world. Not only does a black tote match absolutely everything, it can instantly dress up all outfits preparing you for any job interview or internship.

Next time your school hosts a career fair, take some tips from this Fashionista and command all the attention in the room. Create a business look with a little flair that will have you one step closer to accomplishing your professional dreams.
