How to Dress Flawlessly For That Important Job Interview

You only have one chance to leave a good first impression; with people you spend time with there are chances to change that. However, when it comes to a job interview, you only have one shot, so you should do your best and avoid any mistakes, because even the smallest thing can contribute to your potential employers choosing someone else over you.

Depending on what you look and feel good while wearing, you may choose to wear a skirt suit or a pant suit, but as far as the colour is concerned, don’t experiment too much: gray, navy or black is probably the safest bet so go for that. There will be time to experiment once you get the job, but at the interview better not to take any chances, especially if it is a conservative company.

Classic never dies
Whenever in doubt – opt for a classic outfit that never goes old. Black pants and a white shirt may sound too dull to you, but there is nothing simpler and better than that. In addition, you can choose whether you want your pants to be shorter and tighter, or longer and wide-legged, not to mention thousands of different variations of white shirts. Put on red lipstick, and wear heels or flats, whatever makes you feel more comfortable.

Professional and responsible vibe
The impression you are striving for is exactly that: professional and responsible, so it might be wise if you don’t chose something too dressy. A simple white shirt and a black sweater over it, combined with dark grey pants and nice shoes will send the right message out. Tie your hair in a high ponytail, put on some red lipstick and you will be ready to go.

Add some color to it
Black, white, and grey may be the safest choices for a job interview, but adding a bit colour here and there is not such a bad idea. For example, you can combine a beige pencil skirt with a polka dot shirt, and wear a pink sweater on top of that. Pink statement necklace may or may not be too much, as you see fitting, but a nice tote bag and some pointy toe flats do look professional but not too serious at the same time.

Don’t hide your femininity
This doesn’t mean that you should show up wearing a way to revealing dress, but a subtle emphasis of your curves is not a bad idea. Wear a form-fitting black dress with a delicate gold necklace and a wrist watch, and combine it with a brighter colour of your bag and shoes, such as nude, beige, or even brown.

Bossy is not always bad
Dressing for a job you want is always a good choice, so if you show up dressed like a successful businesswoman, you will surely be noticed. Simple black pumps, black pants and a well fitted blazer go well with a shirt with a subtle pattern and a long necklace. Make sure your hair is nice and shiny, but if you didn’t have time to style it, simply tie it in a ponytail and decorate it with a nice little bow.

When it comes to job interviews, there are some general rules and guidelines you should keep in mind when choosing your perfect outfit. It is important to leave a good impression, but it is also important to feel good while wearing your chosen clothes, sweating  in too tight pants will only make you more nervous, so try to relax and choose wisely.
