WHAT TO WEAR: Meeting With A Professor

What to Wear

Meeting with a professor can be daunting. It can be anxiety-inducing, trying to figure out what to say, what to do and how to make a good influence. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a memorable outfit must be worth something. It is true that dressing with confidence can help make you more confident overall. Choosing to dress up and put your best foot forward also looks good to others around you. And that is just what you need when you’re meeting with the person who will determine your final grade in a course.

This Fashionista is wearing a bright red blazer, which exhibits a lot of confidence and creates a lasting impression. Your professor is likely to remember your spunky sense of style when you choose a bright color. It shows that you are bold, willing to take risks and also care about dressing up for your professor. This Fashionista’s simple black shirt and tights match, which create a sense of professionalism. Neutrals are a perfect go-to for a meeting in which you need to make a good impression. Her dark gray skirt complements these black pieces and rounds out the outfit without making it too immature or busy.

As for this Fashionista’s accessories, her bag, which she purchased at Urban Outfitters, completes the ensemble. The neutrals are perfect for maintaining professionalism. The beige color of the bag adds warmth, as does the red blazer, and the black part of the bag matches the black part of her ensemble. This Fashionista’s Steve Madden flats are also perfect for meeting with someone important. The metallic back exhibits creativity and fun, but maintains that sense of proficiency. Flats are efficient and are good for walkways that may still be icy or for long walks.

One Simple Change: If you switch out the bright red blazer for a black blazer and switch out the flats for black pumps, this ensemble becomes perfect for a job interview.
