It’s interview season. This statement shouldn’t incite fear but excite. It’s time to show all the great work you’ve been doing and get the job or internship that’ll get you closer to your dream career. There are few ways to show off your personality in the application process, but your look at the interview can speak volumes. This Fashionista is ready for a day of interviews, online or in-person. It’s about the details.
Start off with a classic combination of khaki slacks and a white button-down. Add some shine and sparkle with jewels on the collar. You can purchase a jeweled top or DIY this look. The classic navy blue peacoat is a perfect transition piece from winter to spring. Riding boots break up the khaki and are a versatile closet staple for college.
This Fashionista’s personality shines through her accessories. Her gold bow ring, watch and earrings are eye-catching but not distracting. Be wary of overwhelming pieces. You want your personality to shine, but your outfit shouldn’t be the focus of your interview. Frame your look with glasses. There are thousands of options for frames out there, it’s just about finding the one for you.
Don’t forget a bold lip. Red or orange, a bold lip is a confidence booster and looks great with a smile. Still worried it’s interview season? Just remember to be yourself– they’ll be blown away.
One Simple Change: Go from the interview to the internship by adding a blazer. With the basic color palette of this look, you can choose any color appropriate for your workplace. Also, leave the boots and rock either heels or ballet flats. Don’t forget to dress for the job you want, it will inspire you on your journey. Good luck!
