WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

What to Wear

The beginning of April means lots of things – sunny days, longer nights, the end of the semester and, oh yeah, the need for a summer job. No one needs to be reminded of the importance of the outfit you choose to present yourself in, but this Fashionista excelled in looking polished, graceful and upbeat.

This look is extremely versatile for any type of interview. It is clearly modest enough for an office job but also fun enough for a position at your favorite retail store. Not only do you want to look the part, but you want to look like yourself. Dark colors are universally flattering and generally interview appropriate, but if this Fashionista caught my eye in the quad just imagine how she would look walking into an interview amongst a sea of black and blue. First impressions are key and the combination of her vivid top and brilliant smile radiated only the best.

A pretty silk tank like this one from Anthropologie is the ideal key piece for a summer job interview. It is both suitable and fun and by showcasing a personality it enforces that you are more than just another applicant. Another option for styling this type of top includes dressing it up by tucking it into a pencil skirt. The nude flats and cuffed jeans this Fashionista opted for are sleek and professional and allow for endless outfit combinations in the future.

So put your best foot forward and turn heads any day in the office or on the street by replicating a look similar to this Fashionista’s simply elegant ensemble.

One Simple Change: Although this look is interview appropriate, it could be dressed down for a weekend getaway by sliding into a black maxi skirt and some T-strap sandals and carrying a casual satchel.
