WHAT TO WEAR: Interview

February 3rd, 2016 at 2:00am

This look is fashionable and modern day work attire. This Fashionista chose to shop at H&M because the store has “business clothes for a decent price.” When interviewing for a possible job, Fashionista’s need to have all their bases covered. Heels are a must and wearing tights makes the look appropriate and conservative. This Fashionista considers heels “sophisticated” and wore sheer tights, “because it is winter and they tied in with the black top and accents the skirt.”

This Fashionista wore a light amount of jewelry. When getting dressed for an interview, it’s important to have the outfit pre planned and business ready. Interviews aren’t something to skimp on.

Appropriate jewelry is a simple necklace, a few rings and stud earrings. This outfit isn’t meant to invoke too much attention. This look is fashionable because the looks tie in together and accent one another. The general color scheme is black, grey and white.

The black coat, shirt and skirt are from H&M, the tights are from Kohl’s and the black heels are Jessica Simpson from Lord & Taylor.

This style is perfectly young professional. In all of the photos this Fashionista is smiling, which is a key accessory for a positive interview. Your mood should always be eager and excited while remaining calm and collected.

If preparing for an interview, this is a possible style to replicate. The outfit is a part of the crucial first impression. I suggest looking on Pinterest and the internet or getting LinkedIn Premium for further advice. Other factors that show preparation are cover letters, resumes, how you answer questions and what is expected of you and what you should expect. It pays to show that you have done your research.

This Fashionista was carrying a small black handbag, which looked fantastic with the outfit. However, for an interview I would suggest a bigger bag, such as a Micheal Kors tote. A bigger bag can contain a folder with your printed resume and cover letter.

One Simple Change: This look is perfect for an interview and could be worn for another occasion, like an internship. Just add a blazer and you’re set!
