5. Keep the flash to a minimum.
Of course you can wear a statement necklace, but try not to wear anything too sparkly, shiny or noisy. Shiny fabrics, extra-contrasting lapel pins or tie clips can distract from your message as well. Let your words act as your shine!
6. Dress modern but still classic.
Unless you’re in the fashion world, you don’t need to go all out with something super trendy or fashion forward. After all, you don’t want the video of your TV appearance to look dated two years from now when people are still watching it on your website. Sticking to a fairly simple outfit (using always-stylish jewel tones) in modern-day proportions (think slim-cut trousers and two-button blazers) will help you achieve that classic look you won’t mind seeing on repeat.
