Happy Holidays Captains! As the holidays are around the corner, do you have your wish list completed or have your shopping for others finished? For any of your friends and others that will be starting their careers soon, consider buying them some basic necessities to add to their wardrobe. They will be thankful for this and realize the importance when that first interview occurs!
For the ladies on your list, you can buy them some “everyday” type jewelry. This can be a neutral color that can be matched with many different outfits and can help to dress up a more casual outfit. Another option is buying a scarf, which can be great to add a bit more personality and style to any outfit. If she isn’t into accessorizing, consider buying a plain cardigan or blouse. This will be a great basic that can go a long way and worn with almost any outfit.
For the gentlemen still left on your list, consider buying a belt or dress socks. When they wear black pants, but then wear a brown belt and white athletic socks, this can look tacky. If you don’t know what size waist he exactly is, buy a braided belt. A third option is buying him a tie. Eventually he will need to wear a tie, whether it is for that first interview or that first day on the job.
Hopefully these last minute shopping ideas help you check everyone off your list, including yourself! And even better, many stores are having sales, so hurry while it lasts!
