WHAT TO WEAR: Meeting With A Professor

What to Wear

Although classes just began a few days ago, as studious Mohos many of us are already worrying about our grades. Becoming familiar and friendly with your professors is step number one on the path to achieving your best GPA yet this semester. Plus, with over a dozen of our professors on Princeton Review’s list of “The Best 300 Professors,” why wouldn’t you want to spend some quality time with our amazing faculty?

While your brain is the main way to impress your professors, having a professional and stylish outfit will help distinguish you as a serious student. This Fashionista knows exactly what it means to put your best self forward. I caught senior Zanna McKay chatting with her professor after an Italian class. They say Italians know fashion and Zanna definitely came prepared.

Mixing neutral colors with brighter ones portrays the image of someone who is professional and studious but still fresh and youthful. Teachers want to know that you are eager to learn; adding some more playful elements like colorful tights shows them that you have the energy and optimism to work for your grade. Pairing this outfit with subtler accessories will create a balance that won’t push it over-the-top. Try a cute pair of studs or a brooch like Zanna.

If you’re going to wear a sweater or sweater dress, throw a collared shirt underneath to add a classy touch. This look is cleaner and more put together. Plus, when you’re standing next to the girl in sweatpants with the bed head, you’ll be happy to have ironed your button-down that morning.

One Simple Change: If you’re running to meet your friends for a lunch date or much needed retail therapy, ditch the collared shirt and subtle accessories for a trendy pair of dangling earrings and a high ponytail.
