Hey Stags!

On Thursday, Feb. 26, Fairfield is hosting its Spring 2015 Career & Internship Fair. While this event does cater to business students, it still features a variety of companies looking to hire students from many different majors. There’s a lot that goes into making a good first impression, but what you wear is arguably the most important factor. Here are some tips on looking professional, yet not boring.

Mixing patterns is a great way to be fashion-forward. The tip is to stay in the same color family, and make sure the pieces are tailored. Pair a black and white floral blouse with a black and white chevron blouse. Unexpected, stylish, yet also totally appropriate

Black is many people’s go-to when it comes to looking classy, and with good reason. (Seriously, all black makes everyone look better.) But if you don’t want to look too funeral-esque, a bright colored blazer is the perfect way to accent an otherwise neutral blouse and dress pants.

As all Fairfield girls know, statement necklaces are outfit game-changers. Even a basic T-shirt can look business casual with the right necklace, granted that the rest of your ensemble is tailored.

The right outfit can make the right impression, and make you feel totally confident. So, proofread those resumes, dry clean those blazers and get ready to network!

Happy job hunting!
