WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

July 31st, 2015 at 2:00am

There’s no denying it: interviews are terrifying. Whether you’re interviewing for a summer hostessing gig at a local restaurant or for your dream job in a highrise building, the process of sitting down to be evaluated isn’t exactly something that people look forward too. Luckily, there are some silver linings to the occasion. One such perk is getting to dress up.

Business attire is certainly one of the trickiest dress codes to style for, but that doesn’t mean we Fashionistas aren’t up for the challenge. The most important thing to keep in mind, besides the obvious appropriateness of the look, is personality. Adding some unique flair to your look can go a long way in a sea of applicants.

You certainly don’t have to print a list of your favorite things on a shirt to add this personal touch, though. Something simple, like this Fashionista’s watch, is more than sufficient. The noticeable gold details set such a practical piece apart, and its prominence on her wrist ensures it will be admired. Stand out jewelry is always a good way to show off your personality in a business setting, so long as it isn’t too flashy. If jewelry isn’t your thing, try a spiced up pair of black pumps. The layering effect of the two fabrics on this Fashionista’s heels is attention-grabbing and shows a delicate eye for detail.

One Simple Change: Have you wowed your interviewers so much that they decide to hire you on the spot, starting immediately? All you need to take this look from “searching” to “employed” is a bright pair of earrings to show off the confidence that got you the job.
