We are less than a week away from eWomenNetwork’s 2021 ICON, so it’s crunch time to find yourself some iconic outfits. Our conference will have you moving around quite a bit, engaging and interacting with others, so dress for comfort. However, keep in mind there will be several photo opps and when networking, you always want to dress to impress! If you don’t know what you’re wearing to ICON yet, don’t worry, our digital advantage team has curated fashion tips specifically for our event.
- Lean Towards More Modest Choices - Short dresses or skirts and deep-cut tops can be challenging for females to wear to conferences depending on the viewing angle of the audience. Many women’s outfits are made of delicate material that is often see-through, keep that in mind when putting on your conference outfits - you definitely don’t want your bra strap showing through your shirt.
- Extra Clothes For Your Personal Goals - The social media frontier is changing, and they are more opportunities for you to get in on. Our creative director Briana Dai will be teaching our members all about creating Instagram Reels for your business and why they are so important. If you bring extra clothes, you can utilize any free time at the conference to just go for it to start creating your videos. Also, if you are from out of town and you want to explore the area you’ll want to bring extra clothes as it will be quite hot here in the DFW metroplex.
- Be Aware of Accessories - Stay conscious of any accessories you are wearing or thinking of including in your conference outfits. For example, you don’t want to wear big, shiny jewelry that will reflect light or squeaky shoes that will create a distraction for your audience’s attention. Of course, stay true to your style but also be aware of wearing patterns that could potentially be distracting. Before you go on stage, empty your pockets of keys, wallet, or anything else that may be distracting to the eye. When you do a soundcheck, wear the outfit you are planning to wear so you can test any physical activity you may do while giving your speech and to make sure your audience is listening to you and not your noisy shoes. When picking accessories to wear, focus on subtle additions that can add to your outfit and are still in line with being professional, such as simple earrings that add a pop of color.
