When you’re preparing for an interview, you must always dress the part. The saying, “You dress for the job you want,” is spot on. The way you dress says a lot about you. This is especially true when it comes to first impressions.
This Fashionisto was on his way to an interview with a recruiter. He had explained to me this interview was with one of his top companies that he would like to intern for. He dressed for the occasion; for this prestigious interview he wore a tailored black suit by Hugo Boss and he also wore a yellow tie. The tie is essential to completing this sleek and neat look. His attire and etiquette are factors that will contribute to display the fact that he is highly qualified for the job. It is important to find a balance between the suit itself and the accessories accompanying the outfit. The tie stands out because its against a white dress shirt, and the watch helps complete the outfit. His outfit was sharp, clean and sophisticated.
His watch is an accessory that completes the look. You should invest in a watch that will go great with any outfit, as it speaks to who you are. This Fashionisto liked the look put together and found it appropriate for this very important interview.
One Simple Change: If you are going to a more informal interview, lose the jacket and the tie. It creates a more relaxed and approachable look, while still maintaining a polished image. You could also swap the black dress shoes for loafers.
