WHAT TO WEAR: Meeting With A Professor

What to Wear

Meeting with a professor is one of those things in your university career that is quite nerve-wracking. You want to be sure you do the right thing, say the right thing and ultimately wear the right thing so that you leave a good impression on him/her. What you wear and how you present yourself is one of the first things your professor will notice when approaching them, so it’s important to dress the right part.

This Fashionista is well put together yet casual for her meeting with her professor. One key element about her outfit is that she is casual while remaining very student-like in her look, enabling her to avoid coming across as too eager and keen of a student. Her outfit has the right balance to show her professor that she is serious with her studies, but that she is still a regular, everyday student looking for some extra help.

Standing out among the sea of jeans and tights that flood campus in the winter months, this Fashionista opted for a skirt to wear to her meeting. With its floral print and loose shape, like this one from Forever 21, it’s fun and casual. Pairing it with a black nylons creates a look that is a little more professional and appropriate. Along with the skirt, she opted for a simple black tee and cardigan, two articles of clothing that are also appropriate for this type of appointment. Finally, her statement bubble necklace, like this one on Etsy, also mixes both fun and professionalism. It’s a piece that brings the entire look together.

One Simple Change: An outfit like this is great because it’s versatile enough for any occasion. Swap the lace-up boots with a pair of flats or heels and switch the skirt for something a little fancier and you have the perfect outfit to wear during a night out with friends or on a date.
