During your college experience, there are only a few things that have the potential to make you a nervous wreck. While exams you forgot to study for definitely make the list, job interviews have always ranked a little higher in my book. Between bracing yourself for all the questions you might be asked and selecting the ultimate outfit, landing your dream job is quite an experience. While a little bit of anxiety is inevitable, I’ve found that with a few wardrobe tweaks here and there, prepping for a job interview doesn’t have to be so stressful.
Although looking polished and professional should be one of your top priorities when selecting a look for your next job interview, you should always stay true to your personal style. Whether a great pair of leather trousers or a killer pair of earrings is your favorite wardrobe staple of the moment, injecting a bit of what you love into your ensemble is the perfect cure for those nerves.
This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect example of how to blend your personal tastes with professional attire. Instead of opting for a basic blazer, this Fashionista sports a sequined jacket for a twist on the traditional business look. While slacks are always a good option, this Fashionista took a chance and went for an edgy pair of leather pants instead. She ties her look together with a polished pair of black flats and some intricate jewelry.
No matter how nervous you might feel before your next interview, keep in mind that the outfit you choose can make all the difference.
One Simple Change: If you’re in need of a cocktail after your interview, you’re in luck. Ditch the flats for a pair of heels and give the jacket a rest for a look that’s perfect for a night out on the town.
