A little dressy for class? Maybe…but not for a job interview! When trying to impress your future employers, keeping your outfit classy and conservative is key. Throwing in some subtle trends to accent your interview outfit will make you stand out in the sea of black blazers and trousers. When I saw this Fashionista on campus I thought her outfit would not only suit a job interview, but could be worn on a date, to a lunch event or to “meet the parents.”
Her swingy skirt is perfect to take her outfit into the spring, and the micropleats and color blocking keep it current. You may think pleats are only suitable on a school uniform skirt, but that trend made a comeback on the fall 2012 runways. Pleats can be made casual, too, in the form of a maxi dress that will be perfect for your spring break getaway! Her shirt alludes to the classic white button-down that you commonly see on an interviewee without seeming stuffy. I love a good white shirt because it can be worn with cutoff denim shorts, sandals and a felt hat for a daytime look, or taken out on the town underneath a fur vest, a pair of printed jeans and some pumps. A white shirt is something I would definitely splurge on because it can be worn with so many different pieces in your wardrobe. Also, you can style it so it never looks the same.
The details in this Fashionista’s outfit really make the look complete. From her nude pumps that make her legs appear longer, her dainty arm candy and her bold necklace, everything seems well calculated, but effortless. A nude pump is a must-have for any woman’s wardrobe. Her watch and thin bangle are not distracting from the outfit, but look very ladylike. And like any girl from the South, turquoise is something that can be incorporated into any outfit and is the perfect POC (pop of color) to make the outfit her own. I would wear this Fashionista’s outfit to any function. It is a classic outfit while being trendy. It is perfect for the next few months of winter while being able to move seamlessly into the spring season.
