Natty Nittany: Fall Career Days

It’s that time of year again: Students reluctantly print out their résumés, pull on the only business formal attire they own, and trek down to the BJC. Though we’re only three weeks into the school year, Fall Career Days are already upon us. The career fair is the perfect opportunity for students to dress their best. We found some of the most stylish students while they were searching for employment.

I first spotted Kiera and Gianna looking polished and professional, smiling after a successful day at the career fair. Kiera mastered the sophisticated look wearing a Calvin Klein blazer and black pants from Macy’s. Gianna was prepared for the weather in a pencil skirt and fitted Clavin Klein blazer from Lorde and Taylor.


The next student that caught my eye was Andrew, shamelessly wearing the same suit he wore to junior prom. With a simple blue tie and white shirt, Andrew pulled off the young professional look with ease.


Rachel walked out ot of the Bryce Jordan Center in her formal wear with a pop of color. In a TJ Maxx blazer and heels from Kohl’s, she managed to save money while looking professional. She loves to find looks that are “not too expensive but still look professional.” Keep up the smart shopping, Rachel.


Jack was ready to make an impression on the job scouts in his well-tailored suit from Men’s Wearhouse.


Sarah and Katrina looked lovely in their simple and sleek matching outfits. Sarah shopped for her pencil skirt at J. Crew and Katrina snagged her skirt and heels from her mom’s closet.


Ali was nothing short of a fashionista in her feminine blouse, pants, and flats from Express. Comfortable and stylish, Ali made a bold statement today at the BJC.


As I made my way into the crowded job fair, Liz’s outfit stood out to me. In a beautiful blouse from Macy’s and a unique skirt, Liz looked classy and ready to make a great first impression.


Alan was one of the most clean-cut looking men at the career fair in old school shoes from Clarks and a matching belt. The tie clip and pocket square were the perfect accessories to pulled his look together nicely.

Penn State students certainly know how to dress to impress.
