Now you have finally nailed an interview all you need to worry about is how to dress.
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression”.
As we all know first impressions are everything. That’s why it’s important to give a remarkable first impression by nailing your interview outfit. If you’re wondering how to dress for an interview, you’ve come to the right place. You’ve already prepared as much as you possibly can on potential interview questions, practiced your speaking skills with your friends, and made sure you have all your documents handy.
Here are some standard guidelines on how to dress for an interview!
1. The Button-Down Shirt
The classic button-down shirt is the most basic piece of all professional dress codes. This is a must-have for general execution of ‘adulting’. Make sure it buttons all the way up and is nicely fitted! (The loose style is great for a lot of occasions, but for this situation, it can make you look untidy and sloppy.)
2. The Trousers
The trousers are very important! Jeans are a big no no. Having at least one or two pairs of quality trousers is essential. You can stick to black or neutral colors for a start.No employer wants to see baggy pants dusting the floor except they are palazzos!
3. The Right Shoes
Be practical with your shoe choices, it is hard to appear professional when you are uncomfortable. There are some broad norms for shoes: stay away from noisy, super high heels, particularly platforms, stilettos, and chunky heels. If you really want to, stick with short wedges or pumps. Closed-toe is best. Never show an open toe at an interview! You could rock mocassins, dressy loafers, oxfords, and the always-reliable flats. This is a great way to express your personal style and still be comfortable while at it.
