In the fashion world, dressing for the job is half of it. Even if you have an amazing product to promote, if you are always dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, you will never make it in the fashion world. It doesn’t mean you have to wear Chanel, wear heels everywhere you go, or wear ALL the latest trends, but you have to keep your wardrobe up-to-date and look like you have your own style. If you do not have your own, how are you supposed to sell another’s? Here are some tips on how to style yourself for every occasion if you specialize in fashion in the world of public relations.
MORNING MEETING/PROFESSIONAL OUTFIT
You don’t want to wear anything too distracting, but you still need to make a statement. The key to that is to wear a striking color or subtle pattern. Add a few accessories to kick it up a notch.

AFTERNOON PRIVATE LUNCH WITH AN EDITOR OR BLOGGER
You can have a little more fun with a lunch meeting, especially if you are going to a cafe instead of a fancy restaurant. And if you need to dress it up a bit, wear a cream-colored blazer over them.

This is when you can dress up and have a little more fun. And with these dresses, you don’t really need accessories because they are already embellished. Sure you can throw in a ring or long earrings, but the dress and shoes do most of the work for you already.
