Dress to Impress & Walk With Confidence
Los Angeles is notoriously known for the immense competitive element of the city. Now along with the recession competition has reached a hiatus. Recent graduates, unemployed parents, and the experienced working person are competing for the same positions in many career fields. Any advantage is useful and certainly needed. Fashion can become an avenue to gain the attention of a future employer, or has the ability to enhance your ability to leave a good standing impression with the hiring manger. Three things are key this season to accompany an interviewee. First off, stick to the old school rules and invest in a closed toe pair of heels, preferably black. Not only are heels stylish but for many women it increases their confidence and that's a plus! Next, get a two button-down fierce blazer and if the measurements don't have a desired fit get it tailored. That small investment will result in a custom-fit and a new versatile addition to your clothing repertoire . It can now be utilized for professional use and paired up with causal outfits. Finally, bring back the pencil skirt, or a similar cut, that falls right below the knees. Standout and try different fabrics. Stick to what compliments your body type and it will become evident when you try a skirt on and you can't stop checking yourself out in the changing room mirror. Try to stick to black but some of you can pull off gray or navy blue. Always be comfortable, after all you're interviewing for a future position you don't want to add stress to the nervousness that typically accompanies the occasion. Good luck and stay stylish.
