When your diary begins to fill up with assignments and you’re pulling an all-nighter, writing up cue cards, the last thing you’ll want eating up your study time is fretting over what to wear for you big class presentation tomorrow. Although a presentation for your class or lecturer can be daunting, it shouldn’t be daunting to pick the right outfit.
My advice is to go for a classic silhouette, just like this Fashionisto, who dressed smartly in a navy blue and chocolate brown ensemble, which was both polished and professional, yet not too formal. When you have to give a presentation, first impressions count, so if you can entice the audience to pay attention to you–be it with a witty opening line or a stylish outfit–then you are in a good position for the rest of your speech.
If public speaking isn’t your strong point, or it makes you break out in a nervous cold sweat, put yourself at ease with an outfit that not only makes you look good, but makes you feel good, too. When you’re in front of your class, the confidence boost is knowing that you’ve dressed to impress, which will help make your presentation successful.
This Fashionisto looked comfortable, confident and ready to deliver a presentation with ease. I loved that he’s kept his look business-like, with a touch of prep-school-inspired style that keeps his outfit fresh. His collared shirt, peeking out from underneath a cozy V-neck knit, made his outfit smart-casual, the perfect balance between casual and formal for a presentation. This Fashionisto’s pair of brown denim pants went wonderfully with his navy jumper, and I loved that he boldly chose a colour other than the standard dark wash denim. I would definitely give his presentation an A+ with his finishing touch: a pair of crisp white Converse All Stars.
