If you’re planning on going to the Career Expo tomorrow, you might be wondering how to look your professional best without having to sacrifice your personal style to a boring old pantsuit. Read on for the four pieces that are the major keys for ensuring you make a good first impression on recruiters while maintaining your sense of style!
Go for a classic collared blouse in an understated but on-trend print, like vertical stripes, or a solid-colored silky chiffon blouse. Stick to a solid color if you’re wearing printed pants to avoid the circus clown look, and vice versa.
2. Tailored Pants
You can’t go wrong with slim cigarette pants, either in a solid dark color or a mono print. High waisted wide leg pants are another trendy option that pair especially well with a comfortable and neutral pair of heels. Tuck in your blouse and add a belt for a more polished look.
3. A Well-Fitting Blazer
A well-fitting blazer is the ultimate way to bring together a professional outfit, whether its tailored, longline, textured, slightly cropped, or lightweight crepe. Whichever style you choose, a good fit is key.
4. A Statement Accessory
Think a bold statement necklace peeking out from the collar of your blouse or a classic metal watch accentuated by rolled back sleeves. If you add earrings, simple studs are perfect.
