Now in its 47th year, Consumer Electronics Show (CES) signals a start of the new year for the tech industry and is the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. This is the place where you are certain to find the next big thing.

At CES – there’s no doubt, you will be laser focused on the latest gadgets, networking, and, of course, educating yourself on what’s up and coming in the tech world. That last thing you want to be thinking about is what to wear.

After reviewing snapshots and video clips from prior CES events, it is clear attendees’ value comfort for the long days ahead at the same time as appreciating the fact that it is a business event. I also noticed lots of black pantsuits with white tops. For this year’s CES conference, try a fun and interesting take on your black and white repertoire by mixing different black & white patterns/prints in your outfits. This fashionable trend is a quick, fun and modern way to take your black pantsuit from drab to fab.

Here are two inspirational outfit ideas for you – each support your color preference as well as focus on feeling ultra comfortable yet still looking professional for CES.
