Put away those wool Chanel skirts and cashmere sweaters. It’s time for tees and jeans, right? Sure, but if you’re on the hunt for employment, you better be wearing something a bit more polished upon entering that  highly desired interview. Continue reading for some pieces completely appropriate for a job interview that won’t leave you overheated in the waiting room.

Rachel Roy designs strong pieces that work in the interview and for the lunch date after. Pick up this Rachel Rachel Roy “Illusion” wrap dress ($119) with a bold shot of color sure to grab the interviewers attention.

It is always acceptable to wear a traditional button down. Try this Banana Republic linen boyfriend shirt ($69.50) to balance the line of traditional and seasonal.

This Elie Tahari “Whitney” pant ($198) manages to be professional and casual with its perfect summer khaki shade. Wear it with heels for the interview and slip into some flats to run errands after.

Browns and grays are fantastic colors for warmer weather clothing and the same can be said for shoes. This Steve Madden lace-up oxford ($99.95) in a cognac will help you stand out in the interview and everywhere else.

Calvin Klein’s “Christine” pump ($97.95) in a light gray has a sexy cut-out detail to help you show a sense of style without going overboard.
