Over the summer, I attended a prestigious business/entrepreneurship summer program at the Wharton School of Business, where I received an introduction to top-notch undergraduate business education. Over the course of the month I spent on Penn’s campus, I learned about finance, accounting, marketing, entrepreneurship, and management through lectures from Wharton professors and guest speakers. Furthermore, the program entailed the production of a 20 page business plan which tested my ability to work in a team of 10 outstanding individuals. Together we explored the realities of entrepreneurship, communication, leadership, and teamwork before presenting our plan to venture capitalists, which resulted in winning the “Best Written Business Plan”.
We’ve all heard the adage, “look good, feel good, play good” regarding sports. I’m a firm believer that putting effort into your look plays a large role in your overall confidence and performance, whether on the field or in a business pitch competition.
I’ll be sharing a few of the outfits I wore that allowed ME to feel good as a female entrepreneur:
A typical business suit entails a matching blazer and pair of slacks, white button down blouse, and closed-toed shoes. Accordingly so, that is what I wore the day of the competition.
Blouse, Blazer, Slacks: Banana Republic (They have an amazing petite section!)
Heels: Nine West
If you know me, black and white aren’t really my cup of tea; I prefer loud, bold colors and prints which is why I love this outfit so much.
Blouse, Jacquard Skirt: J.Crew Factory
Flats: Tory Burch
3. Black & Red
Though I’m sporting a black blouse, the candy red pencil skirt speaks for itself. It’s aggressive, powerful, and loud (just like a powerful female entrepreneur), but balanced out with the hue less shade.
Blouse: Primark (Only $5!!)
Skirt: J.Crew Factory
Tote Bag: Longchamp
Flats: Tory Burch
