Webb of Science gives fashion advice

19 Jun

Fashion is not normally my beat. But I’m a science writer who writes careers articles, the most recent one about dressing for job interviews. So, today anyway, I’m a writer who gives fashion advice to scientists.

Even though my workday fashion choices these days often remain within the home office, I do take pride in a looking professional (and fashionable) when I do head out for face time with clients and colleagues. One of my guilty pleasures in my Ph.D. student down-time was watching far too many episodes of What Not To Wear on TLC . (I saw the BBC version, too, but later, when I had better cable).

As an added bonus, here’s Clinton and Stacey’s take on job interview dress. Enjoy!

    I’ll admit to liking What’s Not to Wear too. At first, I thought it was the most horrible show I’d ever seen — who ARE these people to go through someone wardrobe & deem it unworthy? But the more I watched, the more I liked it. Liked the tips and liked the emphasis on clothes that fit and flatter. And liked their belief that anyone woman can be beautiful.
