WHAT TO WEAR: Presentation

May 18th, 2016 at 2:00am

Before we can embrace summer vacation, we have to endure espresso-filled late nights and early mornings spent cramming for finals. On top of finals, this Fashionista had to prepare for a class presentation.

Class presentations are a common occurrence for students toward the end of the year, where everything they learned over the year comes together. They require practice, notecards and a killer outfit that boosts confidence. For this Fashionista, that outfit includes colorful jeans, a textured sweater, a bold necklace and ballet flats.

One thing to keep in mind when dressing for a presentation is comfort and mobility. Having to adjust a top or pull down a skirt can be distracting to the audience and disrupts your focus. The ability to reach out an arm or walk around is crucial when picking out your outfit.

Don’t be afraid to add bold accessories. Just because there’s a dress code doesn’t mean you have to avoid adding personal style or character. Places like Kendra Scott or Baublebar are my go-to online destinations for jewelry.

There’s something about dressing up and looking nice that enhances my performance and boosts my confidence. Why dress to impress others when you can dress for your own well being?

One Simple Change: Finished with your presentation and want to celebrate? Switch the ballet flats for strappy heels and wear a black tank top instead of the sweater for a perfect night on the town look! You’ve earned it after all those hours spent flipping through your presentation.
