What To Wear To a Job Interview

Since first impression on an interview counts so much, and you don’t want to look out of the race before the interview even begins. Style must meet professionalism so don’t dare to wear anything too fashion forward or better suited for a night of cocktails with your friends than a serious job interview.

You should be aspiring to dress one notch above what you would normally consider suitable for work. Suits never go out of fashion and you have the choice to pair it with a dress, trousers, or skirt. My outfit today is created by a suit and a pair of white trousers.

Limit your accessories like jewelry and no dangling earrings or arms full of bracelets. It’s not the time to show off your statement accessories though may have a structured bag, scarf, and sunglasses. But, do not be too adventurous with the shoes. Since shoes can be the female equivalent of the shiny suit, keep heels at a sensible height and go for a neutral one in closed-style.

When choosing colors, neutrals are a great selection.Speaking of neutrals, black, gray, and white are great. White sends the message that you’re organized and detail-oriented while black conveys leadership that is great for management positions.

If you look great, you’ll feel great and there will be a much higher chance of you storming your job interview. So, whatever you wish to wear, start with a fairly safe, uncomplicated canvas, and add a splash of your own personality with strong confidence and optimism.
