WHAT TO WEAR: Interviews

It is safe to say this spring semester has flown by and now as the time is winding down, it is time to start preparing for the summer. Preparation for the summer is code for a variety of things. First, we must take advantage of any glimmer of sun because it’s prime tanning time (well… almost). Second, when the weather finally decides what season it’s in, it will be time to start putting away our fall and winter clothes and pulling out those jean cut-offs and flip flops. Lastly, it’s time to start preparing for a summer job and the interviews that come along with it.

When it comes to preparing for an interview, it is true what they say: practice makes perfect. It is also true that dressing the part makes for a perfect interview. As a full time student, it is difficult to not want to dress like one—i.e. jeans, an oversized sweatshirt, leggings, etc. However those types of clothing options are not appropriate for interviews. This Fashionista demonstrates the perfect interview attire, while also staying comfortable. Instead of jeans, she opts for a pair of skinny corduroy pants. Corduroys are just as comfortable as jeans, but they give off a more professional feel. To continue the professional attire, this Fashionista is rocking a layered look on top. The layers begin with a light, crisp blue button-down and a simple gray fitted crewneck sweater. Fitted crewneck sweaters are timeless pieces that can be worn alone and over another layer—professionally or casually.

Her nude lace oxford shoes add a bit of flair and personality to the interview look. Even though they are a neutral color, the lace detail adds a playfulness to the look. Replicate this Fashionista’s classic, professional look and you are sure to get your dream job!

One Simple Change: The interview process went so well that you are ready for your first night out with your co-workers? Simply throw on a pair of dangling earrings to add some funkiness and color to your work attire.
