WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

What to Wear

Summer is the time to get your Steve Madden shoes in the door and explore the work world. It’s the perfect opportunity to see what jobs could potentially pave the way into a career path. Searching for that dream job also means countless interviews where you must dress to impress, because first impressions are important (and sometimes terrifying!)

Dressing for an interview can be slightly stressful, because each company follows a different dress code. Some interviews require business formal, business casual or sometimes the employer is just looking for someone that is creative and chic. When looking for a job, it is important to know about the company you are interviewing for. By understanding the company, you will have a better idea of what is appropriate attire for the interview.

This Fashionista provides the perfect example of how to be stylish, but also professional for a business casual interview. She chose a Banana Republic navy blue pantsuit with a fun, printed blouse. The shirt underneath makes this outfit more interesting, without losing the professional feel. By choosing a blouse that matches the blazer, but also has color makes this Fashionista’s outfit pop. This Fashionista also chose to roll her blazer sleeves to show her pinstriped cuffs. This adds a more personal touch.

The pictured Fashionista wore Lauren Ralph Lauren Shelbi Pumps that are comfortable/ These shoes really pull together the whole ensemble. The pumps are a dark navy color that can easily match and work with other outfits for other interviews. Choose a pair of heels that add height, but are also easy to slip into for long periods of time.

Finding the right job is just as important as finding the right outfit, so open up those closet doors and get started on the hunt.

One Simple Change: Want something a little more casual? Take off the blazer and let your hair down.  Need something that is more creative and chic? There are many colorful blazers with interesting cuffs to pick. However, if the blazer is a bright color or fun print, make sure the shirt underneath does not clash.
