What to Pair from WITwear

Watch as Kristen Eckman, Operations Coordinator and Lauren Rodolakis, Marketing Intern at CO-OPS + CAREERS share examples of what to match from our WITwear professional clothes borrowing closet.


“Welcome to WITwear, CO-OPS + CAREERS Professional Clothes Sharing Closet. We picked out some fantastic outfits and wanted to share with you this first option:

We picked this lovely collared shirt to be paired with a matching pantsuit, or you can switch it up and really mix and match with a nice pair of gray slacks.

Next, we have this nice orange checkered shirt which is from our WIT Free Rack. Clothes form this rack can be borrowed temporarily or permanently – all for free! We just paired this shirt with some nice casual tan pants. You don’t always need a blazer or sweater to go over your shirt but feel free to add one. We would also recommend dressing it up with a tie if you’d like.

We have a great selection of accessories: ties, belts, gender-neutral scarves, handbags, and really anything you need.

We have nice sweater here, paired with a black blazer, very simple and we added some great texture with a black corduroy pant. You could dress it up with a scarf or something else from our accessories.

This next option is a real staple. We have a simple white collared shirt paired with a nice textured gray and white pants which is gender-neutral. We did add a nice simple gold necklace that is not too distracting.

Keep in mind: at professional events, especially career fairs, you do want to look professional and standout, but your resume and your personality will do that for you, rather than your outfit.

We have a very seasonal outfit for the spring career fair as we have a nice floral blouse and we paired it with a simple Navy pencil skirt.

Here was last option we’ve paired a dress a nice peach dress with this blue it’s actually a blazer almost looks like a sweater you could definitely do both and don’t forget about shoes! We have a great selection of shoes right behind Lauren for both genders all of these styles are available during our WITwear hours which are:
