WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

What to Wear

This is the prime time to be applying for internships and summer jobs. One of the best ways to go about finding them are at career fairs. It’s the perfect time to meet representatives from a wide variety of businesses and give them a great first impression. However, in order to fully win them over dressing to impress is key.

The Fashionista featured has on an ideal outfit to show off for any future employer. Her statement necklace from Francesca’s was what first drew my attention to her. Incorporating one bold accessory like this is always a smart choice because it works that eye catching magic. The second element of her ensemble that worked well for a career fair setting was her color coordination of the purple in the necklace with the purple stripped Old Navy shirt. It clearly shows that effort went into deciding what to wear and it’s not too over the top with the coloring. The black Macy’s pencil skirt is a an always sophisticated and professional look for the ever so serious business world. Although she takes a good spin off the simplicity of it by adding a pair of Lord & Taylor tights underneath and tan DSW Anne Klein riding boots for some individuality. In addition to that, she is wearing a Anne Klein Macy’s watch and an assortment of rings she got in Rome.

Needless to say, when trying to dress to impress simplicity is always something to keep in mind but adding a few fun elements of your own can never hurt. Statement jewelry pieces are a great go-to and it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with pencil skirts. With an outfit like this Fashionista’s, it’s going to be hard for a possible future employer to see you as anything short of successful, professional and all around awesome.

One Simple Change: By swapping out the pencil skirt for a pair of blue skinny jeans, this outfit can become a effortless what to wear to class one instead.
