Your palms are sweaty, your voice is shaky and every minute that passes by feels like an hour. No, I am not talking about your first awkward middle school kiss. I’m describing the just as terrifying experience of giving a presentation. Okay, maybe I exaggerated the description a little bit, but we all can admit that giving a presentation can be scary. There’s something about a group of people staring at you that just makes you feel uncomfortable, no matter how many times someone has told you to picture the audience in their underwear. (Who came up with that awful solution anyway?) The key to acing any presentation is confidence. You need to be confident in not only how you are presenting the material but also in how you are presenting yourself. This means dress for the part in a way that will allow others to want to hear what you’re saying.
Without a doubt, this Fashionisto’s outfit will impress an audience. He’s even wearing jeans! When worn the right way denim can look professional. Yves Saint Laurent once said, “I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity–all I hope for in my clothes.” I believe Saint Laurent is right and I am completely obsessed with this Fashionisto’s ensemble because he is wearing denim on denim. Contrary to popular belief, this works! I am loving the all over denim look. Well, I love the denim on denim look when it doesn’t resemble the outfits Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore to the 2001 American Music Awards—if you don’t know what I’m talking about, stop reading now and Google this image before you continue. This Fashionisto’s outfit works because he pairs a lighter-wash denim top with a dark-wash jean. This all over denim trend is a fashion risk that everyone should try!
He pairs his denim ensemble with a watch, simple brown belt and to-die-for leather oxfords. Men, take notes—you need these shoes. This Fashionisto is definitely dressed to impress anyone during a presentation.
One Simple Change: His oxfords are great for looking professional during a presentation. Swap the shoes for a pair of printed sneakers to transform this outfit into an ensemble that can be worn while out with friends.
