CREATIVE

If you plan to work in a creative field, there’s more opportunity to play around with your favorite prints and show off your creativity. It’s important to pair your favorite pattern with minimal statement pieces to create a nice balance to avoid distraction. Even though the job may have a more casual vibe, it’s important to make the right impression during your interview. Show you’re personality, but remain professional!

TECH/START-UP

Whether you’re coding behind a screen or presenting in front of a crowd, this might be the most cut-throat of interview processes. But here’s the catch – your interviewers may be rocking a hoodie with jeans. This doesn’t mean you should dress down your interview outfit in this field, but you can dress a little more comfortably. Instead of heels or ballet flats, opt for your coolest, comfiest boots or sleek sneaks. Keep the jewelry to a minimum since you may not want any unnecessary distractions during your interview. Especially if you’ll be interacting with a computer or a whiteboard. Skip the contacts and wear your glasses today! Overall, looking put-together but casual is your best bet.

CORPORATE

Nothing says “confident” like a fitted blazer and an all-black ensemble. The boldness, yet appropriateness, will accentuate your professionalism. I recommend minimal jewelry if you choose for this look since bold-colors can be a bit off-putting in a monochromatic outfit. Pop on your favorite kitten heels or if you’re on the go, a pair of ballet flats like the classic Tory Burch Reva with a simple watch to finish the look. The key to dressing for a corporate environment is all about the fit. In order to achieve a #bossbabe look, every piece should hug your body in all the right places with nothing being too long, too short, too tight, or too loose.

FASHION

Not everyone in the fashion industry wears Prada but rocking some designer wear wouldn’t hurt. You want to show your interviewers your killer sense of fashion though, so if that means rocking your awesome thrifted ware, that’s cool, too. Make sure you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing and if you plan on doing a lot of walking before and/or after, bring a pair of comfy shoes in your bag!

 

When you dress to impress and put your best foot forward, you’re sure to accomplish anything. Always bring a few extra copies of your resume and band-aids if your shoes are giving you a hard time. No matter what you wear or what the end result is, you’re going to rock this interview!
