WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

Raise your hand if you absolutely love prepping for an interview? I didn’t think so. With summer approaching, and graduation right around the corner for most seniors, it is time to start thinking about jobs and internships. Preparing for an interview is sometimes more terrifying than a first date. It is very easy to overanalyze every little detail, and dressing the part just goes along with that package. Your appearance is the first impression you are making on the employer. It speaks before you do. So when you’ve finally secured that interview, take it as the perfect opportunity to dress to impress.

After doing some research on the company you are interviewing with, you should always try to dress to reflect the their aesthetic. Professional attire varies depending on the company you’re interviewing with. People always say you could never go wrong with black, and while that is true, you shouldn’t always have to limit yourself to a simple black suit.

A midi pencil skirt is an easy way to check “safe” off of the list. Tuck in your favorite blouse, throw on a pair of heels and you’re just about done! This fashionista paired a multi-color tweed skirt with a simple white blouse to start. She added a powder blue long-line vest over it to give a corporate touch to the ensemble. The long-line vest is not only good for the professional look, but it can suit any style you’re looking to rock. She is decked out in pastels, and I absolutely love it. She also decided to add nude accessories to the outfit, such as her satchel and flats as finishing touches.

One Simple Change: Embrace the spring and summer temperatures by switching out the pencil skirt for a pair of white shorts or boyfriend jeans. Instead of the nude flats, wear a pair of espadrilles or flat sandals! This will give you that effortless spring/summer look that is perfect for a brunch or happy hour with friends.
