WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

July 6th, 2015 at 2:00am

As college students, we often have to prepare ourselves for interviews. Whether it is for a new job for the summer or for the internship you have always wanted, having a good interview outfit is a must. Sometimes it can be hard to dress professionally and appropriately while also still being stylish. Toeing the line between cool and casual can be tough depending on where you are applying.

This Fashionisto exhibits the perfect interview look. His pressed white shirt, dark slacks and tied oxfords create classy, clean lines, reminiscent of the Mods of the ’50s and ’60s. But his vintage glasses and the rolled hem on his slacks keep him looking fresh. His vintage-inspired look has enough flair to make him stand out amongst his peers but keeps him looking office ready. While the outfit is on-trend, it isn’t too flashy, making it perfect for an interview. Some jobs and interviewers can be lenient with how they expect people to dress, but it’s always best to keep it simple and make a good first impression, just like this Fashionisto does!

One Simple Change: Want to head out with friends to celebrate your successful interview? Whether you are hitting a new place for dinner or going to catch a show, you could easily switch this look from professional to casual for weekend wear with friends. All you would need to do is simply switch the shoes from tied oxfords to a pair of Vans or slip-ons and you’re ready for a comfy night out. You could also add a bomber or jean jacket to throw over and dress down the look a bit more.
