For Women

  1. Clothes should fit well, not too tight. Hemline length should be decided upon by what works for you and what you will look like to those in the audience, especially if you are sitting up on a stage. Generally, longer sleeves are recommended to maintain a more businesslike appearance.

  2. Find two or three colors that work well with your complexion and hair color. You might wish to consult one of the many books on the subject or contact a “color consultant.” You can then combine complimentary accessories with your basic outfits to provide variety. Find good fabrics and make sure that they don’t make noise when you move! Generally, avoid very bright reds and oranges and blacks and whites since these colors are harsher and tend to draw attention away from the face.

  3. Avoid jewelry that sparkles, dangles or makes noise. Subtle accessories are more appropriate when you are the presenter. Earrings, broaches and bracelets that distract will annoy the audience and draw attention away from your presentation.

  4. Makeup should be simple and compliment the wearer. Overdone makeup can become the focus of negative, and unwanted, attention. Makeup that is well done can control oily areas of the face that might reflect light, enhance natural features and help you look more relaxed even in the most difficult presentation situations.

  5. Hair, like other aspects of our appearance, should add to a positive overall impression of our appearance. While styles are highly individual they should not be the dominate feature of the face. Hair that falls below about 1/2 inch above the eyebrow seriously interferes with the audience’s ability to read your face since a lot of information is communicated from this area.
