What to Wear to a Job Interview

Job interviews are daunting enough as it is without having to worry about what to wear. The general rule of thumb is to dress professionally – it is far better to show up overdressed than under-dressed.
For a never fail option, opt for a dark coloured suit – but ensure it is a good fit. If buying a suit and you fall in-between sizes, you can always buy the larger size and visit your tailor to have them alter it. If a suit is not quite your style, follow our tips and you’re sure to impress!

Tips on dressing for job interviews

If you wear make-up, opt for a fresh, natural look and minimal perfume
Avoid short hemlines and low cut tops, it’s best to dress conservatively
To give yourself an extra boost of confidence, consider getting a fresh haircut a few days prior to your interview
If there is time, give yourself a manicure to ensure your nails are clean and tidy. To keep your look conservative, paint your nails with either a clear coat, or go for a classic french manicure
Opt for closed-toe shoes and remember to give them a good polish
Iron your clothing the night before and hang it up straight away to avoid creasing
Details matter – check your clothing for stray threads, missing buttons, pet hair, rips and stains
Don’t be afraid to wear a splash of colour – a bright scarf, belt or handbag will really pop against your neutrals!
It could be worth investing in a second interview outfit, as many jobs require more than one interview
Whatever outfit you choose, make sure you feel confident and happy in what you are wearing – confidence shows.
