There's no official dress code for the Research Fair, but you should consider these suggestions when deciding what to wear:
- Choose clothing that is one or two levels dressier or more formal than what you'd regularly wear to class.
- Choose shoes that are comfortable. We'll have a chair at each presenter table, but you'll be standing for a majority of the fair time.
- Whatever wardrobe you choose, pick something that will boost your confidence! Avoid clothes that will distract you with constant adjusting or shifting.
- You can think professional - this is a great opportunity to test an "interview outfit." Pantsuits, skirted suits, or jacket-and-tie are all acceptable options... but are certainly not required.
- You can also think casual professional - trousers or khaki pants, button-up shirt, polo shirt, blouse, cardigan, sweater, knee-length skirt or dress, heels, dress flats, dress shoes.
- Probably not appropriate: ripped or distressed jeans, shorts, short skirts, workout clothes, flip-flops
If you have a wardrobe idea, but you're not sure about it, please check in with Research Fair coordinator Carrie Phillips, and she can advise.
