WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

With a grueling class schedule every semester, it’s hard to think of anything other than studying for the multiple exams your professors scheduled on the same day. But at some point, we are all going to have to put the information that we have hopefully learned during our college years to the real test—eventually, we’re going to have to go to a job interview. Personally, I’m terrified. I’m going to be worried about what to say and what to wear. Whether you’re trying to get an internship, summer job or start your actual career, your first impression is crucial. No one is going to want to hire someone that looks like they just got out of bed. In the wise words of Denis Waitley, “The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.”

This Fashionisto has definitely put in the effort that would, without a doubt, impress a future employer. His ensemble is full of Southern charm that will be sure to land him his dream job. His perfect interview outfit consists of a navy blue blazer, a white button-down and a pair of khaki pants. He adds his own personal flair with his accessories and shoes. His coral striped bow tie serves as a pop of color and really makes his outfit interesting and unique. When picking an outfit for an interview it is extremely important to look professional yet still stay true to your own style. You don’t want to look like everyone else that has walked through the door. Having a unique interview outfit will help the person that is hiring you remember who you are. He completes his look with a pair of tasseled loafers and a beautiful watch. Watches are important—even if you really don’t use them to tell the time.

This Fashionisto’s ensemble is the first step to getting the job. If you look good in your interview, you’ll feel good in your interview.

One Simple Change: His khaki pants are great for a formal interview. Swap them with a pair of dark wash jeans to transform this ensemble into a look for brunch.
