Back to school season is a time full of firsts for the upcoming year—first day of school, first essay and the dreaded first presentation. Putting your best footwear forward for the first presentation of the year is a surefire way to gain confidence and potentially better grades. This Fashionista was aware of the power of her outfit and stepped out for her presentation with a look that is stylish and professional.
When I noticed her walking out of the campus library, I was immediately smitten with her outfit. From top the bottom, this Fashionista got an A+ in her outfit presentation. The simple but effective use of color blocking is a unique way to utilize professional pieces in a wardrobe without looking messy or mismatched. By focusing on key pieces with minimal patterns, this effect is maximized.
The Fashionista’s red peplum top is eye-catching and trendy, and by choosing a black skirt and belt, makes the top the focal piece of the outfit. The peplum top also adds an element of class, as it is a trend showcased by many a royal lady. The simple choice of a watch adds an air of professionalism, and the belt emphasizes her slender waist. The simple white bag is practically big enough for carrying binders and laptops, but sleek enough to conceal them well.
What really makes this outfit not just a good presentation outfit, but a great one is the Fashionista’s shoes. The unique black webbed pattern over the gold makes them stand out. By keeping the rest of the outfit relatively basic, this Fashionista is able to pull off the unique heels. By adding this element to the look, she comes across as both accomplished and accessory-wise.
One Simple Change: Switch up the black skirt for a pair of black jeggings to make this outfit just right for an afternoon coffee date or night out with the girls.
