Some people may think that when going to an interview or work it is best to leave your unique style at home. However, with a little manipulation, you can create a perfect dress for an interview.
Depending on your line of work, your fashion will vary. For professional jobs maybe at a bank, or office it is important to look like a professional. Longer skirts such as a pencil skirt work great for this environment. Pair it with a nice blouse and even a blazer to add some pizazz and to show your individuality. If you are comfortable, you can wear high heels, but make sure they are a solid color to keep them professional. The same rule goes for flats, as well as clothing. If you like patterns, wear a patterned blouse, but make sure your slacks, skirt, or dress is solid to avoid conflicting patterns. Jewelry should also be kept simple, but if you are wearing mostly one color, do not be afraid to change up the color when it comes to your jewelry. Your handbag does not necessarily have to match your outfit but it is good to have a nice bag to complement it. Any solid colored bag will do the trick, but there is a bit more leniencies since you probably won’t be wearing it all day.
If you have a job where you are able to be more creative, your outfit can also show this. For example, if you are a hair stylist, writer, fashion designer, etc. you can afford to show your creative gifts on yourself. Your outfit can consist of more patterns and textures compared to someone working in an office, but you still want to match and look your best. Scarves and accessories are a great way to make a professional outfit more artistic. Play around with colors, even when it comes to your makeup, you can wear a colored eye shadow to accentuate your eye color without distracting from your purpose at work.
When it comes to interviewing for a job, the key is to keep it simple in order to avoid taking away from what you have to say. You do not want to create any distractions, but you do want to be noticed. The best outfit for an interview is generally one you could wear to the job you are interviewing for. Feeling confident in yourself and your outfit is the best way to look good for an interview as well as your daily duties. Pair that with these fashion tips and you are on your way to success.
