WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

As we begin to see spring weather finally creeping up, so is the daunting task of nailing down the perfect summer internship you’ve been losing sleep over. The dreaded question, “What are you doing this summer?” seems to be thrown at us almost daily. After hours of critiquing your resume until it looks so perfect it almost looks bad again, researching countless companies and attempting to practice for those curveball interview questions, you have enough to stress over this interview season—don’t let your outfit be another.

This Fashionista absolutely nailed this look for an interview. She looks extremely  professional and polished but still has an intriguing amount of style in her look. She has on cuffed, black pants with a pair of Rag & Bone heeled booties. These booties are a great way to look the part but still feel comfortable if you’re wearing them all day.

The top half of this outfit is what grabs my attention. She is wearing a fitted, black blazer with exposed gold zippers and leather detailing along the end of the sleeves. She paired the blazer with a Tibi blouse with just the right amount of detail in it. When dressing for an interview, color means more than you think. By sticking with this neutral palette and adding just a hint of color in the blouse, this Fashionista avoids any ideas of unprofessionalism based off something as simple as a color choice.

No matter what you are interviewing for, there is no denying that a first impression carries enormous weight. Whether it’s to be the next Hillary Clinton or the next Carrie Bradshaw, with the right outfit and a touch of your own personal style, you’re sure to get the professional attention you deserve.

One Simple Change: Heading out to dinner with friends after a day of interviewing? Trade the booties for a pair of black wedges. Throw on a pair of statement earrings and a bold lip and you’ll have a perfect outfit that is fit to work hard and play hard.
