WHAT TO WEAR: Presentation

Whether it’s a speech, group presentation or interview, presenting is the most dreaded yet unavoidable college experience. Wearing an outfit you feel confident in can help ease your nerves. In this Fashionista’s case, as the president of an honor society, she just finished leading the first meeting. Looking professional and prestigious was her goal and should be yours as well.

In order to look presentable as well as fashionable, this Fashionista put a modern spin on a classic business casual look. She chooses a traditional striped button-down and navy Sperry Top-Siders that scream preppy. However, she adds a pop of pink to brighten up the outfit and leaves the shirt unbuttoned to show it off. To enhance the color scheme, she added gold statement jewelry, like the drop pearl necklace and chunky Michael Kors watch. This combination of preppy and chic is a unique way to take an outfit from drab to fab.

It’s important to feel your best in order to do your best. Keep this in mind the next time your picking out an outfit for a serious occasion. Professional and business casual don’t have to mean boring. After all, you’re not trying to put your audience to sleep, so the right outfit can definitely set you up for success!

One Simple Change: Grabbing dinner with friends after your presentation or going out that night to relax and celebrate? Simply take off the button-down and throw on a black leather jacket. Now, you’re all ready for a girl’s night out!
