Interviews are nerve-racking experiences, especially when it involves the internship of your dreams. First impressions are crucial, and what you wear can either make or break your chances of getting the job. When you have your eye on a once in a lifetime opportunity, nothing should keep you from putting your best foot forward. For many, this means wearing a great pair of shoes, just ask this week’s Fashionista.
This Fashionista’s outfit was both stylish and professional. Instead of going for the usual grey and black office attire, she rocked a daring red dress. Remember, an interview outfit should reflect your best self. Professional attire doesn’t mean sacrificing your own style, you should wear clothes that make feel you confident. This, however, does not mean your outfit should overpower you.
When interviewing, it’s very important to dress conservatively. You want your resume and work to be the main focus, not your outfit. This Fashionista’s dress is great because the neckline is a higher cut and hides any exposure incidents (remember Beyoncé at the Grammys?). The conservative neckline makes her look put together and modest. Her dress on the other hand, accentuates her waistline. To create a more polished look, she paired the dress with black tights and a black blazer.
She accessorized with a chunky statement necklace. Accessories are a great way to add your own personality to your outfits. But don’t accessorize with anything too flashy, keep it classic and simple. To complete her ensemble, she wore a pair of lace-up booties. These shoes are dressy and comfortable. They make a great shoe for any interview. Remember, there’s nothing less professional than trying to walk in uncomfortable heels.
