What to wear at interview


Career: Job interviews are scary enough as it is! When it comes to dressing for them, make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear. If you feel great in your interview attire, you're more likely to be yourself and nail that interview. Dressing for a job interview can be daunting.

The key is to strike the right balance between looking professional and staying true to your own personal sense of style. Above all, make sure that you are comfortable in what you are wearing.

Blue is the ultimate safe choice

Navy blue is the best color for a suit to wear to a job interview, because it inspires confidence. You are more likely to get the job when you wear navy blue to an interview than any other color. Be wary, though, of choosing navy for more creative job interviews, where you could come off looking too conservative.

Black is boring

If black is your comfort blanket when it comes to clothes, don't shy away from it, but add a splash of colour or a print to stop you blending in with other candidates. Just avoid wearing a black dress under a black jacket teamed with black shoes.

Shoes they matter

When your interviewer glances up and down at you as you arrive, their gaze will finish on your shoes. Make sure they are clean. Never ever choose heels that you have trouble walking in you don't know how far you'll have to walk through the building to the meeting room. A closed-toe mid-heel is the safest option.

White sends the message that you’re organized and detail-oriented

Send the message that you’re organized, impartial, and looking to make a clean start wearing white. While wearing a white suit is probably too big of a statement for a job interview, opt for a white blazer over a black shift dress, or a white button-down paired with a pencil skirt to get the benefits of wearing the shade.

Save purple and yellow for interview in creative field

For the most part, experts suggest playing it safe with neutrals for job interviews in most fields, but if you’re interviewing for a job in a creative field, don’t be afraid to wear certain colors. Purple sends the message of being artistic and unique, white yellow projects optimism and creativity.
