WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

What to Wear

Whether you’re a college senior, junior, sophomore or even a bright-eyed freshman, it is never too early to start thinking about your future. While it may be scary deciding what to do when we leave the comfort of our college campuses, deadlines and interviews sneak up quickly, and you surely do not want to miss out on great internship opportunities. So when facing the daunting process of interviewing for your dream job, why not do it in style? This Fashionista proves that you can be both professional and fashionable while chatting with your future employer.

There may be a slightly different dress code from a business-related company to a more creative work environment; this Fashionista nailed the balance between being office-appropriate and showing off her personal style. Start with the basics. A good white silk blouse and a gray or navy pencil skirt go a long way. Be careful not to throw on a too-sheer shirt or a too-short skirt. Alternatives to these two staples could include a long-sleeved patterned button-down or a pair of slick black slacks, depending on what kind of job you’re pursuing.

I know that most Fashionistas believe the higher the height, the better when it comes to heels. But for an interview, stay sensible. Your favorite designers still make one- and two-inch pumps! Or if heels aren’t your favorite, a pair of pointed flats will do just the trick.

Now we get to the fun part: individual flair. This Fashionista added an oversized watch, a bright messenger bag and large studded earrings for pops of color and a cool topknot to the otherwise simple look. It’s these little touches that will set you apart from your competition.

One Simple Change: Every Fashionista should own a tailored blazer. Throw it on over your blouse for a professional yet chic top layer.
