Is there an interview coming soon? Do you know what clothes are you going to wear to your next interview? Even if this is not in your short-term list, it is good to have something in mind to avoid last minute struggle. No matter if this is going to be your first job/internship or just the next one, it is well known that the first impression is really important. Even before starting a conversation, you are already making the first impression.
These days there is no need to be in a black or navy blue suit. Especially if you are applying to a startup or a company where there is a more relaxed dress code. That is why it is a good idea to analyze the company a little bit.
Keep it simple
Keeping it simple is the safest way that will ensure you good looking. A shirt with blazer and dress pants is a classic and simple combination that you can freely go for. However, if you are bored of being that simple, you can be more creative. For example, with colors and textures. These days you can find so many different shirts of different fabrics and beautiful colors.
Another stylish and chic outfit is a business style dress. It is a great option if you want to avoid the classic suit and dress pants. Combine it with a blazer and you are ready to go. You should not forget that we are talking about a job interview and there are some things that you need to have in mind like the length of the dress.
You should not underestimate the pencil skirt as well. The advantage is that you can wear it with all the different shirts and blouses. The high waist skirts are so trendy nowadays. Great way to be stylish and fashionable at the same time. Going for a classic one-color skirt gives you the opportunity to experiment with the color of the top.
If you take time to think about your outfit and have it when the moment comes, this will help you to make a great first impression on your potential employer.
An important thing is that your clothes should not distract the interviewer. The same is with your hair and accessories. It is not an advantage and you may be disappointed by the final result.
It is understandable that after all the years in school/university, it could take you time to switch to that business look. However, it always depends on the company. If they don’t have a particular dress code, you can express your personality and style after you have been hired.
