What to Wear: Work it!

Let's talk business. For the Office, an Interview, or Career Fair... What do you wear??

I was asked recently for some ideas on what to wear to an up coming career fair. I immediately went to work, thinking about this post from different angles. This one was a bit tricky for me and outside my little box. BUT that really made it fun! I hope you get some good ideas on what to wear, Renee! 

 The key is not to lose yourself in business attire. Especially if it is not something you would normally wear. You don’t want to be uncomfortable in a stuffy suit if you don’t absolutely have too. Think about your normal everyday style and then add a few key things to make it just a little more traditional. 
I love the look of pairing mis-matched blazer and pant with a light weight print top underneath. This first look is light and airy, but still very professional. Pairing this cream blazer with Gap’s Perfect Khaki wide leg is amazing. The muted leopard top is a great pop of personality without being too loud. I know I always say this, but don’t forget the accessories! Shoes, jewelry, a fun scarf, and a bag that looks amazing and is still functional enough for toting around your resume! 

On the surface this outfit look really predictable, but look a bit closer. I'm pairing these great black wide leg trousers with a super soft brushed silk top. Dressy enough for an interview, but also great tucked into a pair of skinnies with a belt and fun flats! I LOVE this navy and white striped blazer! I'm a rule breaker when it comes to fashion. You can wear navy and black. AND just to be crazy I threw in leopard pumps and a brown belt. PERSONALITY! I also added a chunky bracelet and pair of earrings to really glam it up! I think it really comes together great and flows so easily!

Praying for a VERY successful day for you Renee!  I'm sure they will all be fighting for you! :) You will do amazing (no matter what you wear)!
