Choosing The Right Color For A Job Interview

There are lots of necessary steps to take when preparing for a job interview: researching the company, looking up on the profiles of the people you'll meet, picking the appropriate outfit, and finally wearing the right color. Wearing the right color to a job interview will help convey your confidence and ability to fit into an organization's environment and most certainly land you your dream job.

Here are a few tips on choosing the right colors for your interview attire:

Choose Solids Over Patterns:
An important rule in preparing for an interview is to try not to be remembered for your attire; you need to wear outfits that allows the interviewer to focus on your skills rather than your wacky style. Wearing solid colors helps ensure that your clothes will not distract. Colors like; navy, dark gray, black suits and plain colored dresses in particular look professional without being distracting. Small patterns, like thin pinstripes, are okay as well.

Choose Neutrals Over Brights:
If you wear a very brightly colored suit or dress, you will almost certainly be remembered for your outfit (rather than your job qualifications or skills). Neutral colors - navy, gray, black, and brown - are the best colors for a job interview. White is also an excellent color for a blouse or button-down shirt. You can certainly add a pop of color to an interview outfit. Pale or pastel colors are a great way to add color without appearing too authoritative, and are great for people-friendly jobs such as service or creative positions. For example, a splash of bright, bold color (such as a red bag, scarf or tie) conveys authority, and can be great for managerial positions. However, limit the number of brightly colored items to one, and make sure it is not the dominant color of your outfit.

Know the Office Environment:
If you are applying for a job in fashion, or a sales job at a unique clothing store, you might feel free to be a bit more creative in your coloring to show your sense of style. But in a job market where employers must decide between numerous qualified candidates, the right outfit with the right colors can set you apart from the pack.
