What to wear for a Networking Event

As many students are graduating and beginning their job and intern search, they are also networking. With my experience in the fashion world, a lot of my younger friends have asked for advice on what to wear to a networking event.  So I decided to write to post to give some ideas.  


Networking 1

I have a thing for dresses when it comes to events and interviews.  It not only shows the feminity of a woman but it is also a cclassy style with and twist of chic.  I love the bold color which makes an individual stand out of the crowd of dark colors (which for some reason is the standard style at networking events).  Styling bold colors with neutral accessories also helps makes a statement to your ensemble.

The sophisticated office look is another one of my favorite styles.  A tweed high waisted skirt paired with a bold color top helps brighten up your style and bring out your personality.  Matching this ensemble with a wide waist belt and a bold statement jewelry brings together the outfit.  Don't forget the appropriate heels to complete the look. 

So what do you think?  What are some of your networking looks?
