When you head in for a job interview, the way you present yourself is paramount. It can say a lot about you - do you care about your personal presentation? Does your professionalism align with your clothing choices? Will you fit in with the company dynamic? So it's all the more important that you hit all the right notes in your attire, from top to bottom.
This guide will not only help you nail the interview look, but also give you some handy hints and tricks to boost your confidence heading in - not to mention where you can find all the items!
A collared blouse is an easy go-to choice for a job interview - it’s classy, elegant and just formal enough to elevate the look.
If you want to showcase your personality, you can get some cute printed blouses with subtle but fun designs to brighten things up.
We’re talking cacti, palm trees, cats - the lot!
There are very few things as equally flattering and professional as a pair of tailored pants.
Whether you want to opt for a high waist or stick to a conventional pair of straight leg slacks, this option is definitely a reliable look for a job interview no matter where you’re applying.
And don’t feel like you’ve got to stick to black either - be brave with colour!
If you don’t have the tailored pants and you’re in a bind, black jeans are a great way to make your outfit a bit more casual without sacrificing your professionalism.
Plus, they’re comfortable to boot!
If you opt for black jeans, dress them up with a more business-like top or with a few boldly coloured accessories to give it some personality.
A tailored dress allows you to express a bit of femininity while still remaining professional and fun.
You can stick to traditional black or if you feel like being bold you can go big with a print or bright colour.
And if your print is a bit much for an interview, you can always tone it down with a black blazer and shoes.
A pencil skirt is an absolute staple piece when it comes to job-seeking.
If you like to wear skirts, this is the most professional option you can go for, especially if you pair it with a collared blouse or even a sixties-inspired cardigan.
This is a particularly good option if you’re going to an interview in summer where it’s too hot for pants.
Blazers are the easiest way to make any outfit look just that hint more professional.
You wouldn’t think that one jacket would have that power, but it’s true.
There’s something about the tailoring and structure of a blazer that oozes confidence and success, so make sure you rock one at your next job interview.
If you’re comfortable in heels (though it’s totally okay if you aren’t), then they’re a really good option if you want to add a touch of fanciness to your outfit.
Now, that doesn’t mean that you can go crazy with some sky-high stilettos or see-through platforms, but a good pair of medium to high heels can dress up a look instantly.
Say it’s winter and you still want to achieve the look of heels for your interview, but there’s no way your poor toes can handle the cold.
Well, there’s an easy solution here.
Pointed boots still have the elegance and style of heels but the comfort and warmth of a boot, so really it’s the best of both worlds for you.
If you’re not a heels kind of person, you’re still going to want to make sure your footwear is fancy enough to get you to the interview comfortably AND in style.
Flats are pretty impressive nowadays, with different straps, shapes and designs to look really put-together without any semblance of heel elevation.
Just because you’re rocking a more corporate look than normal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your own personal style and attitude.
Let your personality come through with your accessories, incorporating statement pieces made of bright colours and patterns.
Choose something that complements your clothing choices but is just different enough to help the interviewers remember your name.
Different offices have different dress codes, but it’s a good bet that the interview should see you wearing business casual - but what does that even mean? Business casual is essentially just clothes that are structured and appropriate for a corporate office, but still with a sense of flair and personality. You don’t need to go all out on rigid suits or uncomfortable shoes, but you do need to make an effort.
Believe it or not, your hair and makeup make up a significant portion of the first impression you give. It’s important to be well groomed, and unless you’re applying for a job at an actual makeup counter you’ll probably want to cool it a bit on the ultra-glam looks. Opt for something relatively natural, but don’t be afraid to rock some bold brows or a brighter lipstick to make it pop.
