STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dress For Success

Eventually every college student has to trade in his or her novelty sweats and T-shirt for business casual attire. This doesn’t have to be the end of the world. As you get older, you realize that you can’t wear your favorite T-shirt forever, but you can save them for the weekends. As a college student aiming for the real world, jobs and internships become part of your daily life. This calls for an appealing, appropriate and stylish ensemble.

When a first impression is naturally based off appearances, the challenges of self-promotion are sometimes harder than the actual job. However, this Fashionista took a simple look and genuinely made it her own. From far away, the outfit looks like typical business casual attire, but if you get closer you will be able to see detail that heightens the look. Her flats, which were a steal from Target, have a high-class look without the expensive price. She paired her classic, black pant with a pretty, embellished top. The beading on the collar really gives a subtle uniqueness to her style. To top off the look and really make it her own, she added a bright red kate spade new york bag and a rose gold watch. Remember that accessories can make or break an outfit. These pieces definitely made this outfit.

Your style is one of the biggest ways to truly show who you are, so take advantage of that. Going to work doesn’t mean that it is all work and no play. Have some fun with it!
