There are so many occasions in life that require a great first impression: meeting your significant other’s family, starting an internship and interviewing for a new job or position. With events like these, it is necessary to dress your best.
These events are nerve-racking alone that it is, so there should be no reason to worry about your outfit too. I suggest keeping it simple. Don’t incorporate too many elements that you’ll have to worry about during the interview, you’ll have enough on your mind. Start with pieces you feel comfortable with and accessorize from there.
I caught this stylish lady in the perfect interview attire. She chose a sophisticated look to make a great first impression with limited pieces to worry about. She paired a black and white striped skirt, like this one from Ruche, with a royal blue top. The blue gave her ensemble a pop, but my favorite part of the tank was the jeweled collar. While not all Fashionistas can score a killer top like she did, they can tailor their wardrobes to get the same look. I suggest using this essential short sleeved tee from Gap to tuck into the skirt for a polished feel. It offers the same pop of color that hers did, but without the jeweled feature. Then, for a little sparkle, find a statement necklace. The Translucent Flower Necklace from J.Crew in crystal would be a great option and could serve as a versatile piece for future occasions. She finished off her ensemble with a pair of tan wedges to keep the outfit perfect for a summery daytime event.
One Simple Change: To make this outfit perfect for an evening out, swap the tan wedges for a classic black pump. By pulling on the Michael Antonio Lydia Pump from DSW this Fashionista could be ready for a fancy date night.
