Interviewing? Look Like You Know What You're Talking About

A NY Times article brought about some conversation here at the Shefinds water cooler. With so many of us out there interviewing, what does one wear to make the best impression against multiple other job applicants? As someone who worked in corporate HR, I know you don’t have to wear pinstripes to get your point across. We showed you one option a few months back, but here are a few other looks to try out:

The Suit: Make it the best you can afford and purchase pieces that coordinate to make your life easier. J.Crew is a fantastic go-to resource for classic suiting at reasonable prices.

Their Wool Gabardine Two-Button Jacket ($165) with corresponding City Fit Wool Gabardine Trousers ($95) makes a great pantsuit. Or switch out the pants for the Wool Gabardine Pencil Skirt ($78). I would suggest against wearing a black suit to the interview – dandruff or lint shows up like a neon sign.

The Blouse: Finance and law can stick with the standard J.Crew Kelly Shirt ($54), but If you wear a white shirt, make it brand new or completely spotless.

Less conservative atmospheres can utilize this season’s purple to set off a great complexion, like this BR Silk Charmeuse Quilted Blouse ($79).  Creative types? Show your personality with this cute Fred Flare Emerald Bow Sheer Blouse ($40).

Remember to show personality through accessories but keep all your personal expression below the line of your eyes so interviewers are listening to you speak, not staring at your loud, jangling earrings.
