Presentations can definitely be nerve-wracking. Sure, you can prepare for what you’re going to say, but when your actual words only account for a mere seven percent of how your audience perceives you, you know that what you wear must be important. In fact, 55 percent of your audience’s opinion is formed based on your appearance and body language, so it’s no wonder that Fashionistas and Fashionistos might stress while picking out an outfit for a presentation.
This Fashionista nailed the perfect presentation outfit, looking polished and professional in her classic button-up and bootcut dress pants. Her cream Vince silk shirt looked crisp and proper, and the cream was a classic and safe color for any formal presentation. Paired with her Calvin Klein black pants, the shirt looked put together, and her sleek booties added a more sophisticated and modern edge. The Stuart Weitzman “Scooped” pointed toe booties had a two and three-quarter heel, which was the perfect height for the office or for a presentation. Remember that when giving a presentation, choosing an outfit that makes you feel both comfortable and confident is key.
Finally, this Fashionista topped off her outfit with a nude chevron watch. With nude leather and gold accents, the watch was perfect feminine accessory to keep track of her presentation timing.
One Simple Change: While meeting with a professor, it’s always important to make a good impression. Swap out the dress pants for a pair of dark wash stretch denim, like this pair from FRAME denim, for a polished, but more relaxed look.
