Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
Ive been filmed for lectures and its either even from the chest up or I've been behind a podium. Just make sure you are comfortable, don't wear black next to your face if it washes you out and make sure your makeup is very slightly bolder than usual.
A very practical note and apologies if obvious - If you will be (or if you don't know!) using a clip-on microphone with battery pack, rather than a podium microphone, then something you can clip them onto - v-neck top or cardigan for the mic, pocket in trousers for the battery pack. This has caught me out before! Whoever chooses tech for lecture rooms on my campus thinks all lecturers are men wearing suits and ties I think.
I'm a lecturer. Today I wore black skinny jeans, a cream blouse with a black print, and a black crew-neck jumper over the top, plus flat black Chelsea boots. At this time of year I pretty much wear a variation of this, or short-ish a-line skirt, crew-neck jumper, opaques and flat boots. I teach a creative subject so tend not to be particularly smart, whereas people who teach in more formal areas - eg, law - tend to be more suited and booted.
