How to Dress for a Media Job

When your job is to get the scoop you never know where your day is going to take you. Making sure you are dressed to handle any situation is key when you work in the media. From a breaking story requiring a camera-ready look to last minute parties or interviews with a celebrity VIP, a woman in media never knows what her day might bring. The key challenge is finding an outfit that is comfortable enough to handle long days (and the occasional job to chase a story) but has enough polish to not look out of place at a chic soiree.

We recommend timeless silhouettes like a pencil skirt or a button down cardigan. Make them sparkle with unique textures like a jacquard lace skirt with a metallic finish. We are loving how our lurex Metallic Stripe Cardigan takes a classic day piece and makes it work through the evening. Having a pair of flats that has more personality than your average pump like our Michelle Lace Ballet Flat is the secret to comfort and style. And don’t forget a fun hair accessory. A headband is an easy way to “zhuzh” up messy up-do in a minute flat.
