WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

After winter break, it is inevitably hard to get back into the swing of things. After winter break and an unanticipated snow week, motivation among Emory students has proven nonexistent, and the various papers, presentations and quizzes that our professors thought we would have due this week have been pushed back in a smart correlation with students’ increasing procrastination. Unfortunately, one thing that hasn’t been pushed back is the endless search for that perfect summer internship or job. For that, we are lucky to have career counselors constantly planning fairs, meetings and resumé workshops, but an important question still remains: “what do we wear?”

For that Fashionistas/os, I can happily provide an answer. This week’s style maven has a look that will take you from classes to career fairs without breaking a sweat. No one wants to be that girl walking around in her skirt suit in the 150 person Introduction to Human Biology lecture, but at the same time, it’s necessary to look put together and professional at a career fair. This Fashionista seamlessly transitions from a casual to a more formal setting in an “oh so trendy” light pink, wool blazer layered over a V-neck sweater and business-appropriate light yellow pants. Her cheetah print infinity scarf adds a playful touch and the brown combat boots are functional yet fashionable.

One Simple Change: Swap out the slightly casual pants for a tapered, wool trouser to transition into an interview setting. Switch out the boot for a cute D’Orsay flat and your look is perfect for a trendy entrance into the corporate world!
