WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

With summer coming to a close, real life is back in season – and so are homework assignments, sleepless nights and the somewhat dreadful job search. Finding a job or internship as a full-time student is not easy! That being said, finding an affordable and confident interview look can be another added stress to an already tenuous process. This chic and sassy Fashionista knows how to keep her office-appropriate style fun and classy while keeping her pockets happy.

First impressions are incredibly important in regards to a professional environment. However, it is important to look appropriate while remaining yourself! Professionals interview multiple people in one day and standing out is key. This Fashionista is one example of how you can look professional, but also show off your personal style. Interview wear should not be boring! Solid colors mixed with funky shapes and bold prints can be a great alternative to the classic white button-down and pencil skirt look.

Because this Fashionista pairs classic business attire with vibrant colors and prints, her outfit is both appropriate and fun! Combining a structured top with a loose bottom is another great trick to pulling off prints and bright colors in one look. By putting together a blazer with a silky harem pant, the print of the bottom does not overwhelm, but rather compliments the outfit while balancing out the jacket’s pop of color. But how does one know if the outfit is dressy? Fabrics and choice of material goes a long way in making something go from casual to formal! Because this Fashionista’s blouse and pant are made of a soft and silky fabric, the outfit is brought to a new level of sophistication.

Last but never least, don’t forget accessories! This Fashionista added a funky necklace, some colorful wedges and a classic black tote to bring this unique and impressive business-casual look together.

One Simple Change: By switching out the blazer with your favorite leather jacket, adding a pop of color with a bold lipstick and removing the large piece of jewelry with something a bit more delicate, this outfit becomes sassy, remains classy and is ready to wear for a casual night out.
