Dress to Impress
Good morning everyone!
This week, since some people have already returned to school and I'm heading back to university as well, I thought I'd talk about the importance of making a good first impression.
Especially when it comes to going to a job or internship interview, making a good first impression is extremely important. According to MindTools, a first impression can be nearly impossible to reverse or undo.
What you wear is a huge part of a first impression.
Here are a few tips on dressing to impress:
- Throw on a blazer: A blazer can pull together nearly every outfit, so if nothing else pop one on for a more polished look.
- Keep it comfortable: Don't wear anything you don't feel comfortable in. It will show if you're fidgeting and uncomfortable. So stay polished, but be comfortable too.
- Be memorable: Stand out a little! This will help people remember you and think of you as more of an individual.
- Simplicity always works: Keep it simple. Wearing something too crazy will be distracting to both you and the potential employer.
- Be yourself: Stay true to yourself and your personal style. People want to see and appreciate the real you.
- Smile: A positive attitude can make or break a first impression. Don't forget the most simple thing you can do to come across well to a future friend, employer, etc. is to just smile!
Hopefully, these tips will help you nail your next first impression.
To start my professional look, I chose a sleek pair of pink frames from Polette. Polette has some amazingly beautiful style for your eyes.
I chose a striped crop top to match the color of the glasses and a classic pair of white mom jeans. Remember not to wear jeans with rips or scuffs on them for any kind of interview. This can come off as unkempt or untidy.
I popped on an army green blazer from Banana Republic. For a great blazer, I recommend checking Banana Republic or J. Crew. I also recommend investing in a blazer because a well-made, classic blazer will last through the coming and going of years of other fashion trends. A blazer like this is definitely worth paying a little extra.
For my feet, I chose my rose gold flats. I like to chose shoes I'm comfortable in, for interviews. This way I'm not awkwardly trying to balance in shoes that are too high. Choose a pair of shoes you can walk comfortably and feel confident in!
