WHAT TO WEAR: Meeting With A Professor

What to Wear

It’s that time of year where everything is picking up and the stress is starting to seep into every day a little more. This means a full class load, more activities you can count, and keeping your social life alive. With so much going on, you might feel yourself falling behind in a class or two, which typically necessitates meeting with your professors to ensure that you truly understand everything.

There’s no need to show your professor how stressed you might be with your appearance, though. Keep your impression positive with the perfect ensemble that shows how dedicated you are to your classes. This Fashionista’s look is perfect for almost anything that could be thrown at you during the course of a day, but especially great for when you need to talk to your professor. It is neat, not overdone with accessories, but still approachable and casual so that it will not make your meeting feel overly formal.

Putting your best foot forward without sacrificing your normal day-to-day style is key when going to meet with your professor. Keep in mind that both you and they are taking some time out of your day to help you be more successful. This Fashionista incorporates vintage elements, especially from the ’90s, into her outfits daily. She managed to make grunge feel polished, yet authentic. Layering a structured thrifted flannel jacket over a ladylike black polka-dot H&M dress is a great way to be stylish, but appropriate. Opaque black tights and black booties with buckles will give you a seamlessly presentable look that is anything but boring.

I especially love how this Fashionista went minimal when it came to her accessories. It keeps the focus on the subtle textures of her outfit instead of distracting with too many things going on. Take inspiration from Coco Chanel’s philosophy that “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” You’ll be left with a subtle, stylish outfit that makes just the right statement to start your meeting off right.

One Simple Change: For a night out, add some great accessories and a sequin jacket to give the outfit a touch of glitz and glamour. Some added sparkle is sure to make you shine.
