1. Plan in advance
You don't want to wait until the D-day to choose an outfit because one of two things or even both are bound to happen - you either spend hours in front of your wardrobe looking for what to wear and end up going late. Or you don't spend enough time and end up with a rushed look.
Planning your outfit days ahead gives you enough time to experiment with different options so as to find the perfect dress.
2. Don't go too casual
While we may be in the era of remote working, dressing too casually for an interview -whether online or in-person - is strongly advised against.
It’s always better to be too smart than towards the casual end of the spectrum. Remember, your appearance is very important when going for an interview.
3. Wear practical shoes
The last thing you want to do is turn up for an interview with a limp or a funny walk.
This will not only affect your confidence but can mess up your thought process, therefore, affecting how well your interview goes.
If you're not a fan of ballet flats (which are equally as empowering), you can try a block or kitten heel to add height whilst remaining practical or opt for a smart loafer.
4. Avoid anything revealing
Button shirts are a top choice for interviews and it is not hard to see why. It gives a modest and formal look easily.
As well as low-cut blouses and dresses, avoid cut-out detailing and sheer fabrics, basically anything that may expose an unnecessary amount of skin.
5. Go for a sensible hemline length
Mid-length dresses are popular choices for job interview looks.
This length means you can sit down easily, without having to adjust and it’s not too long that you’ll be tripping over either.
You don't want to appear on the other end of the smart look spectrum nor do you want to have to bother with keeping your thighs covered in overly short outfits.
6. Bring a jacket
This important wardrobe essential won't just keep you warm but can help pull the whole look together too.
Adding a jacket to your outfit can take your look from 0 to 100 really quickly. It also has a way of adding edginess to an outfit.
With these aforementioned tips, looking chic and smart for that job interview will come easy to you like A, B, C!
