What To Wear To A Job Interview

21 October


Deciding what to wear to a job interview is always a challenge, especially when it's a  role you're desperate to land. You want to dress smartly while still allowing your personal style to shine through.
A good rule of thumb is to dress formally, even if you’re interviewing for a job with a casual dress code. It proves that you’re taking the interview seriously and have made an effort. Remember, this will be the first time your interviewer will meet you, so they will be looking for signs that you’re going to do well in the job. Making an effort to dress smartly will give the impression that you will put effort in at work, too.
Don’t wear clothes that are too revealing. If you’re not sure whether something is too revealing or not, just remember that your clothes shouldn’t show your cleavage, bottom or underwear. Skirts should be mid-thigh at the shortest and remember to wear a nude bra/camisole if you’re planning on wearing a white top. 
Accessories and makeup can be a minefield, as sometimes an eye-catching piece of jewellery can mean that an interviewer remembers you. However, statement pieces can sometimes be too loud and distract from what you’re saying. For this reason, it can be best to keep it simple. Makeup is a very personal aspect of your look, but it’s a good idea to go for what you wear on a casual day rather than a night out.
The most important thing is to be comfortable, so no shoes you can't walk in or trousers that cut into you when you sit down. This way, you can focus on what’s important – showing that you’re the best person for the job!
