Stacey Coyne from Men's Wearhouse conducted a presentation for Mrs. Mahony's Fashion and Interior Design classes at High School East titled How to Dress for Success: Branding Yourself.
The presentation was very interactive and covered topics which included how to dress professionally for an interview, first impressions, interview tips, and resume tips.
Ms. Coyne brought in examples of professional attire and demonstrated how men should button a suit jacket properly, what color tie is appropriate, matching the shoes to the belt, and even what kind of socks are acceptable. She also discussed professional clothing for women which included skirt length, jacket fit, shoe heel height, nails, and make-up.
Ms. Coyne showed examples of dos and don'ts for interview dressing, and also discussed the small details that will make a difference.
The students enjoyed the presentation and were able to have a better understanding on how to put themselves together professionally for a job interview and working in a professional setting.
