When it comes to that big job interview, you need to dress to impress, but what if your go-to outfits have seen better days? Career image consultant Lizandra Vega has some tips to spruce up that suit, and they’re all things you can do yourself! For instance, take this tip for updated old blazers:
“Got a stain on your favorite blazer that even your favorite dry cleaner can’t get out? That was Vega’s problem until she covered it with a cool patch she picked out at MJ Trimming in New York City. “It made the blazer look very designer,” Vega says. The cost? Just 50 cents. While she was there, she bought a large denim patch, with a big happy face and heart, which turned an otherwise unremarkable denim jacket she had into one that’s “boho chic.” Cost? Just $12. That’s the gist.”
