In choosing my look of the week I went for professional business attire, mainly because it’s about time for me to graduate. Since I want to work in the corporate world, I need to look more professional. There’s something about being professional and unique that stands out to me. Going in to the corporate side of things, you mainly see the traditional type of suits, but I feel it’s important that you are able to include your unique style with a professional look. This is why I chose the blue dress pants, with the red button up, and a neutral. 
I started out as an advertising major, but I’ve always worked with fashion – teaching myself how to sew, doing little DIY projects, and styling my friends from time to time. It was basically like a calling because I love what I do and I have a lot of passion for it.
So doing something I love is how I got into this field. My tip for those who are interested in fashion: Always have your style but know how to be professional with it. It’s important that you are able to do what you love while looking great doing it.
Follow your dreams, do little projects, create mood boards, and inspirational boards. This helps enhance your knowledge of the fashion industry. Remember that you can choose to be in fashion, but what you do with fashion is completely up to you.
Each of the looks featured in this article can be found in the Career Clothes Closet, located on the second floor of Horace Mann.  The Look of the Week is brought to you by the partnership between the Office of Career Services, the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences Fashion Merchandising program, and the Collegio.
