One of the biggest differences I felt going from high school to college, apart from the crazy overload of work and the amazing friends you make, is how you meet professors all the time. From presentations to work revisions, the fact is that helpful teachers make it a lot easier. This week I found a Fashionista on her way to a quite formal meeting and despite being very nervous she gave me the best tips on what to wear in these situations.
Starting from the bottom, she pointed out the importance of shoes. A great entrance in any room will leave a good impression on everyone. If you’re not too comfortable wearing heels you should have no problem choosing from the amazingly wide range of flats that can be found these days. Her favorites are the Melissa ones — always on the go whenever you need them.
The black skirt is a classic and if there is one piece you should always have in your closet, this is it. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that models vary a lot but you should always shop in accordance to your body type. A simple yet colorful top enriches the look. However, you should always make sure everything looks proper. Finally, and like in every situation where you need to feel powerful, the blazer is ever-present. I especially like the fact that it has a discreet pattern because it’s always good to see small changes from the basic black.
When it comes to accessories, this Fashionista reassured me that less is more. The black bag goes in line with the rest of the outfit. At the same time, the necklace gives it a feminine touch while the watch balances it as a stronger piece.
All in all, you’ll do as well as you feel. And with tips and inspiration like this I’m sure you’re set to get whatever you want.
One Simple Change: Going for a pair of jeans instead of a skirt will make this outfit ideal for a study group or even for running errands.
