WHAT TO WEAR: Presentation

May 4th, 2015 at 2:10am

College is filled with both amazing and challenging experiences. From stepping outside our comfort zones to having the time of our lives, this period of life definitely has its ups and downs. If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing more horrifying than seeing the word “presentation” printed on your syllabus. Although I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m a shy person, there’s just something so terrifying about having to stand up in front of a room full of people and speak. Since these moments are inevitable, I’ve found that the secret to boosting your confidence and easing your nerves can be found in your closet.

This Fashionista’s look is a perfect example of chic presentation wear. Since these occasions typically require that you dress in business casual, that means short hemlines and comfortable clothes are definitely out of the question! If you’re a little uncertain as to how to keep your personal style in tact when dressing for a class presentation, take a few notes from this Fashionista and opt for a classic pencil skirt. Although technically business casual, a pencil skirt is the perfect piece for any Fashionista looking to stay true to her style aesthetic.

As for the rest of the ensemble, follow in the manner of this Fashionista and test out a printed blouse. If you’re going to opt for a sleeveless top, make sure to pair it with a cardigan or blazer for a more refined look. In terms of footwear, as this Fashionista demonstrates, you truly can’t go wrong with a pair of kitten heels.

For your next presentation, although those nerves you’ll be feeling are unavoidable, put on your sharpest wardrobe staples for an instant confidence boost that will surely get you through your time in front of your classmates.

One Simple Change: If your presentation went so well that you decide to have a girl’s night out after, fear no more! This look can transition perfectly for a night out on the town with the addition of a pair of strappy sandals and a sparkly clutch.
