We go to college for many reasons, but in the end, we hope that our education leads us to a job. This is why most universities offer so many programs and classes for learning how to interview. An interview gives a potential employer a first impression, and often, there aren’t second chances. Therefore, it can be pretty stressful deciding what to wear for an interview! However, this Fashionista nailed the look. It is cute, flattering and has personal style, but is still appropriate and classy.
I love how this outfit is all-black but not boring in the slightest. This Fashionista starts with a black, sleeveless blouse. The color and shape make it formal and business appropriate, but she dresses up the shirt with a statement necklace, adding interest and a quirky touch. She chooses a pair of black cropped trousers for pants. These pants have a slimmer fit, which balances well with the looser top. The cropped pant allows her to show off an awesome pair of ALDO boots. They have a modest heel which will make for easy walking, and the peep toe allows her to show off pretty nail polish.
For accessories, she picks a silver wrapped bracelet from a local designer. Her silver ring with multiple bands plays off of this wrapped look. Her large watch adds a masculine touch that contrasts with her other, more delicate jewelry. Finally, she finishes with a canvas tote that is eco-friendly and also endorses a local shop. This bag is practical yet roomy enough to carry a notepad, pens or whatever else she might need for the interview.
If you have an interview coming up, it is best to keep it simple and add interest with the smaller details. Sticking to all-black creates a streamlined and elegant look. A sleeveless top will allow you to not overheat from nerves, but is still modest and business friendly if it is a button-up. Cropped, narrow trousers are flattering and comfortable and will allow you to show off a great pair of boots. Keep accessories fairly minimal, and adding a watch will keep you punctual. Choose a tote for a bag to keep things practical, and to not distract from your amazing resumé.
