What To Wear To: Nail The Interview
March 1, 2009
If you're one of the millions of Americans competing for jobs right now, you'll want to look extra sharp for your next face-to-face. And what you'll need more than anything in the coming months–aside from that stellar job offer–is the outfit to catch your future employer's eye. Here are two looks that are sure to impress, depending on the type of job you're seeking.
Corporate: The business world requires you to be conservative, but that doesn't mean you have to wear a boring, buttoned-up suit to the interview.
Show some semblance of a personality with a colorful silk twill blouse ($69) paired with classic black trousers ($55.30, were $79) and a crisp white blazer ($395). Opt for a burgundy patent bag ($190, was $350) big enough to fit your impressive resume, and wear comfortable, attractive pumps ($140, $295) that give you some commanding height.
Creative: For a more creative job, try a fashion-forward approach to display your artistic side.
This graphic shift dress ($150) is an ideal choice when worn with matte black tights ($14) and black booties ($198). Add some modern jewelry like a gold cuff ($23) and beaded necklace ($32), and finally, grab your most professional roomy bag ($237, was $525).
