WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

Many of us will have to face the real world one day and try to land the job of our dreams. Hearing that you got an interview can be nerve-racking, but can also be one of the most exciting moments for any college student. Knowing that all those long hours spent focusing on school paid off. Through all the nerves of prepping for the amazing opportunity to get to do what you love, you blank out on what to wear. They say first impressions are everything and in times like these, you want to make sure you make the right one. However, have no fear because I’m here to guide you towards the right direction.

We all have the same question in our head: “where do I start?” The best place to start is to pick a suit. There are many ways you could go about this, but the simplest way to look classy and clean is to be consistent with color. For example, if you’re planning on wearing a black blazer, match it with black slacks. This Fashionisto decided to wear an all navy fitted blue suit. This monochromatic suit from Men’s Wearhouse gives any stylish Fashionisto a classic look. What makes this suit fashionable is the fitted, tailored look. It shows that he took the time to get it personalized to fit him just right. Men’s Wearhouse is the place to get a suit perfected to your liking.

Ties can be a real struggle when trying to figure out how to tie them and how to pair them with your suit. Ties should always contrast your dress shirt. This Fashionisto did just that by pairing a darker blue tie against a light blue dress shirt. Your tie should be a statement on your suit, but not too overwhelming where it becomes a distraction during your interview. This is why resorting to a simple look is always best. As for tying your tie, go for a simple option. Complex ties like a trinity knot or wearing bright, flashy patterned ties will take away the focus of the interview. Let fashion express who you are, but don’t let it talk for you. After all, the interviewer is interviewing you, not your outfit. To top of this fifty shades of stylish suit, he wore a light brown leather belt to match his shoes. This ties in the whole outfit, keeping it consistent with color.

This Fashionisto has followed all these tips and is ready to dominate that job interview!

One Simple Change: Hopefully, these helpful tips will help you land the job of a lifetime or the internship you’re wanting! You can simply change this decked out look by losing the blazer and changing those fancy dress shoes into Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes for a presentation.
