WHAT TO WEAR: Presentation

What to Wear

For many, giving presentations in front of a class or a professor is nerve-wracking. And, while preparing your speech or slideshow, the last thing you need to worry about is also being self conscious about what you’re wearing.

To avoid a major fashion faux paus in front of a large group of people, prepare a stylish but professional outfit for your presentation. If you’re struggling for ideas, don’t hesitate to look to this Fashionisto for inspiration. His outfit is trendy but understated, and would be absolutely perfect for any type of formal presentation or speech.

His dark, heathered blazer is a fashion staple for both men and women. It is a versatile piece that works for presentations, job interviews, a day at an internship or just to dress up an outfit for class. He adds a little flare and personality to his blazer with a pale pink pocket square, adding a stylish edge and a pop of color.

He smartly paired his classic blazer with a chambray shirt – another wardrobe staple. The slightly worn look of the shirt contrasts nicely with his blazer and makes the outfit look fashion-forward instead of too stuffy. His muted coral pants, paired with the light blue of the chambray, creates an interesting color palette that is on-trend, but won’t be distracting to the audience during a presentation.

This Fashionisto really bumps up his look with his colored socks and stylish shoes. The navy socks tie nicely back to the color combination of the chambray shirt and his blazer – this helps the look stay uniform while still adding another personal touch. The socks and  his red-hued wingtips look professional while adding individuality.

This overall look, with professional qualities but touches of personality, will be sure to give anyone confidence and help them nail their next class presentation or speech.

One Simple Change: Swap the colored pants for khakis or dress pants and you’re set for a more formal event, like a date or an interview.
