How To Dress For A Job Interview


When it comes to job interviews, there are lot of things to consider that often times we forget to pay attention to. And the most important one is "Our first impression".

Your first impression in any job interview is key and what will determine your becoming a potential employee in that establisment- As you walk into a room, portfolio under your outstretched arm, ready to shake hands with your future boss, they will instantly form an impression that will last the interview and beyond.


However, most first impressions are based on how you look because your appearance gives your interviewer a scope into the kind of person you are. He/she would make the first judgment based on your outward appearance before considering what you have to offer.

Therefore I'll give you some tips on how to make a good first impression and land your dream job. Be inspired...



Plan Ahead: To avoid being overly stressed while looking for what to wear for your interview, it’s best you plan it the night before. This helps you make a good match and also saves you the stress of running around the next day.


Dress To Suit The Work Environ: The kind of job you apply for should determine the way you should appear. If you are going for an interview in a creative work setting, you might want to consider a more fashionable outfit. But keep in mind that it should still be formal and decent. However, if you are applying for a job in a formal work environ, it’s best to suit up!


Maintain Your Personal Style: Dressing for a job interview can be intimidating and frightening so the key is to strike the balance between looking professional and staying true to your own unique sense of style.


Be Comfortable: Job interviews are scary enough as it is! So when it comes to preparing for them, make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear. If you feel great in your interview attire, then you’re more likely to be yourself and nail that job.


Your Shoes Speaks Volume: The interviewer checks the entirety of your looks so if you think your shoe’s are not important, then think again because as you arrive, the interviewer glances up and down at you and their glance will end on your shoes.


So make sure your shoes are always clean and never choose heels that you have trouble walking in-a closed-toe mid-heel or 2 inch heel is the safest option. Avoid too bright colors and stick to print or pastel style if you want to add a touch to your outfit.


Wear Less Jewelry: Stay away from too much jewelry. Too many earrings, chains, necklaces or bangles can cause uneccessary noise and distractions.


Proper Fittings: Wear clothes that fits you properly and steer clear of revealing clothes. It's great to "show off what you got", but there is a time and place for this and the interview room is not the place.


Color Matters: You shouldn’t use more than three colors including your handbag for an interview. The most acceptable colors for an interview according to research is; gray, blue (navy), white, black, deep purple and brown (when paired with other solid colors).


Smile: There is no better accessory than putting a smile on your face throughout the interview. Always start your interview with a big smile no matter how nervous you feel. It will make them instantly warm to you and start things off on a good note. Smile and nod at your interviewer as they talk to you and you'll definitely keep the energy of the interviewer positive.


The most important thing is to stay confident and poised in whatever attire you choose to wear and act like you've already landed the job. Don't forget to share this article to your friends...xoxo
