WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

What to Wear

The clock is ticking towards the summer, and the internship and job search is in full swing. Career fairs are incredibly abundant, and they’re easily one of the best ways to land your dream job. While working a career fair with my current internship last week, I was able to notice students outfits from the employers point of view. When I spotted this Fashionista, I loved that her business look embodied exactly what I was loving to see.

At the top of the career fair to-do list is to stand out amongst all of the other candidates. With her bright but professional outfit, this networking queen definitely made an impression. She started her look with a crisp black and white dress. Her patterned frock stood out from the stereotypical black suit. Being the perfect cut for the work place, you’ll still look like a great potential intern, without sacrificing your style.

Easily, this style maven’s blazer was her most eye-catching piece. The bright blue made her pop in a crowd, and didn’t sacrifice her professional look. Her colored jacket didn’t sacrifice the polished vibe she was portraying, but definitely brought out her personality. The bubbly color made her seem extremely approachable, which only brings her one step closer to the goal of landing a job.

This Fashionista finished off her look with a great Betsey Johnson watch and a classic pair of simple heels. Keeping her accessories simple kept her outfit job appropriate, and kept the focus on her stellar resume!

One Simple Change: This Fashionista’s dress is a fabulous option for day to night also! Take this similar dress from Banana Republic, and change out her blazer for an edgy leather jacket, and you’re ready for a night on the town.
