WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

The spring semester has officially arrived and summer is just around the corner. Though summer time is the season of vacationing, long days and even longer nights, it is also a time where students look forward to taking on an internship of their choice. The winter months then become a very imperative for both upperclassmen and underclassmen as they apply for internships or even their first entry level position as a college graduate. No matter what job position you’re applying for, that perspective company will more than likely need to interview you before you’re hired. When interview attire comes to mind, many may think of a boring black suit with minimal accessories. For this interview season, let’s think out of the box.

With this occasion, you don’t necessarily need to cast away the traditional skirt and suit look. It’s more about dressing the look up to be trendy yet professional. This Fashionista was a great representation of this concept. She sported a black skirt, white button-down shirt and black tights. She created a hint of edginess to her ensemble by substituting a leather jacket for a plain blazer, studded black flats and a black scarf.

Interviews are all about standing out from the crowd and leaving an impression. Put your personality into your business professional ensemble by accessorizing with subtle edgy pieces. Knock your interviewers out with not only knockout answers, but a knockout ensemble as well. Trust me; they won’t be able to forget you.

One Simple Change: Heading to a girl’s night out afterwards to share the news about your successful interview with close friends? You’ll already have the accessories to create a cool casual look. Just throw on a pair of black jeans and within seconds, you’ll revert back to your casual, chic self.
