Sweaty palms, closed throat, jittery stomach—this is what most of us feel when faced with the task of a presentation. The night leading up to this you’ve gone over your PowerPoint, revised your flashcards and set your alarm for 6:00 a.m. so you can wake up extra early to review. Then it hits you, what are you going to wear? You swing open your closet doors and pull out every grandma sweater in your possession, pair it with some frumpy slacks and dash in front of a mirror to try everything on. You dance around trying to imagine yourself wearing this the next day and a frown appears. This isn’t you! You are not your mother! OK, maybe that was a bit dramatic, but nevertheless this Fashionista has the perfect outfit for you.
Dressed in a classic white button-down long sleeve shirt and satin skinny black pants, she layers with a neutral black and tan striped cropped sweater and completes the outfit with a pair of tall black boots. She keeps the accessories light with stud earrings, a simple rose gold watch and black and tan bracelets. Sophisticated and chic, this WHAT TO WEAR look is perfect for the Fashionista who wants to look presentable, while holding onto her sense of style. It is important to remember that although it is essential to look professional, it is just as important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing.
One Simple Change: Once you’ve aced the presentation, reuse this outfit for an interview by switching the boots with a pair of black heels. Good outfits such as this one tend to come in handy in more than one occasion.
