Dress For Success

Time to step it up for success!

Adulting means jobs and grown-up stuff, and success is near. As they get closer to graduation, one of the greatest changes our students are about to experience is abandoning their shorts, t-shirts, and yoga pants, as they begin to dress for success in their new roles, or as my older daughter stated, for adulting. Dressing for success can be daunting in different ways, but the one that stands out most may very well be its cost.

Starting with the career and internship fairs students should be attending, students need to look professional. For the young men, this may mean a suit and tie and for the young women, while they have more options, it may mean a suit, pantsuit, skirt, and blouse, or dress. That’s not to mention shoes. For students who may not have the means to go and purchase a new outfit, some schools find ways to help.

Students need to research the companies they will be interviewing with and eventually working for. Some companies are very conservative in their dress policies and require business attire, while others are more business casual. Trends change, but the basics still require that their look should be polished. Most department stores will have suit(able) options.

As they begin to upgrade their wardrobe, they will be happy to know some stores provide discounts to students. We recommend students sign up online and download the app for Student Beans which will give them discounts for many categories including fashion. Even students going on to study in the health sciences will find discounts on lab coats, scrubs, and clogs.
