Bag The Job Of Your Dreams With This Guide To Interview Fashion


Do you always spend ages agonizing about what you will wear each morning? Well, if you have an interview, you might spend even more time contemplating your outfit for the day. The clothes we choose to wear for interviews are extremely important, as they can tell the interviewers about the types of people we are and our levels of professionalism. It is often said that many interviewers base their final decision on the first few minutes of the outfit. That means first impressions count, and there is nothing that can make or break the first impression that you give off more than the clothes you are wearing! Not sure what you should wear to try and bag the clothes of your dreams? Here are some great tips.

Find Out About The Company’s Dress Code

Just a few years ago, it would have been very safe to turn up to a job interview in a very formal trouser suit. However, these days, many companies are eager to move away from a stuffy and formal work environment and are embracing much more relaxed dress codes for their staff. You will find that a lot of businesses now say that their dress code is ‘smart casual’. So you don’t have to wear some clothes that are extremely formal and uncomfortable. However, you should still make sure that you are dressed smartly. So leave your jeans and trainers at home! Instead, go with a pencil skirt and blouse or a shirt dress.

Choose An Up To Date Outfit

Many companies will want to give their open position to a candidate up is a very up to date and forward thinking person. The best way to show off this part of your personality is to choose an outfit that is very now. There is nothing worse than turning up to an interview in some clothes that are noticeably a few years outdated. So if you have some clothes in your wardrobe that are older than five years, don’t wear them. Pick something that will make you look like you have stepped out of the pages of a glossy magazine!

Stay Comfortable

The interviewers will be able to spot if you are nervous and uncomfortable a mile off. As you will probably have to deal with your nerves in the interview, you need to make sure that your outfit doesn’t also become a problem by being too uncomfortable. For this reason, it isn’t a good idea to wear shoes that you bought the day before the interview. They might be quite painful and cause you blisters. Instead, pick shoes and clothes that you know you will feel comfortable in, and won’t cause you any pain or discomfort. If you do end up buying a shirt or skirt especially for the interview, one great tip is to ensure that you always cut the tags off them. That way, they won’t be scratching you during the interview!

Hopefully, your clothes won’t ever cost you your chance at the new job!
