Attending a job interview can be a daunting and nerve racking experience - however if you give thought to what you are going to wear in advance and plan your dress attire, this will help you feel good/in control, give you extra confidence and self-esteem and hopefully help you to give your best .
The first thing to do is to research the organisation beforehand. Take note of their culture, dress code, the role you are applying for, the image you want to present and ensure that your outfit is suitably appropriate.
KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER
See links below for items above.
Remember necklines and hemlines – neither should be too revealing. Best to avoid showing lots of cleavage and the ideal length for dress/skirt is just on or below the knee.
Team with a pencil skirt or a tailored trouser. Again, not showing off too much flesh but perhaps having a patterned style. If suits wear a belt to add an accessory.
Not too flashy but would work teamed with neutrals to keep the look simple yet stylish.
If going for black, navy, grey etc then consider adding a pop of colour under jacket and a coloured bag. The shoes can be the same colour as the suit.
A classic leather bag gives you the edge (remember to always take care of your leather goods – cleaning them often.
Shoe height ideally moderate heel – and make sure that they feel comfortable.
Jewellery should be kept simple yet stylish.
Flesh coloured tights look best, although depending on the outfit and the season a patterned/opaque tight would work – no fishnets!
