Whether it is to get help with your work, figure out what classes to take next semester or just to have some time with a mentor, meeting with one of your professors can be nerve-wrecking. It is important to make a good impression and show up as if you are ready to exceed. The idea is to dress for success, but do not look like you are trying too hard. Incorporate your personal style and dress it up a bit and you will be good to go.
This Fashionisto’s outfit definitely will allow him to make a professional impression. His outfit starts with a blue collared shirt and red tie. He pairs this combo with a simple pair of khakis. The combination is a go-to look for any guy who needs to dress up. However, he also tops his dress shirt with a sweater from American Eagle. His sweater not only keeps him warm in the crisp fall weather, but also keeps him from looking too dressed up.
He finishes off his outfit with a pair of comfortable Sperry Top-Siders and his glasses. All in all, his outfit is simple and put together without giving the “trying too hard” attitude, but also comfortable enough to show his personal style. It’s perfect for a meeting with any professor.
One Simple Change: If you have a more formal event to attend, just remove the sweater to let the collared shirt and tie show more. If it is a very formal event, switch out the Sperry’s for a pair of dressier shoes.
