What to Wear on Your First Interview

It’s always important to dress for success!

We all know how important it is to make good first impressions but this especially holds true when it comes to interviews. Navigating the world of interview attire can be difficult but definitely worth it. You want to make sure you stay true to your style, but you also want to make sure you’re dressed for the job you want.

Before you head off to that interview make sure to keep these few things in mind!

Step 1: Do your research! 

I can’t stress this point enough! Of course it’s important to know the beliefs and policies of the company you want to be employed with but it will also give you a leg up to know their office attire. If the company has a business casual dress code you would seem kind of silly to show up to an interview wearing a three-piece suit. You want to show that you’d fit it perfectly with the rest of the employees.

Step 2: Establish some staple pieces

It’s important to understand the company you’re interviewing for, but there are some key pieces you can never go wrong with. For example, some great staple pieces are a classic button down, a pair of slacks, and a simple dress.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Button-Up Shirt from j.crew, $59.99

I love how the ruffles on this top give it a little personality while still keeping it professional.

Logan-Fit Tailored Trouser from Banana Republic, $98.00

These pants are such great quality and work perfectly with heels!

Sleeveless Dress, H&M, $34.99

I like wearing dark colors but try to stay away from black (lint becomes very visible and after a couple of washings it can start to look dull) so this dress is perfect!

Step 3: Go for comfort

How are you going to make a good impression when your heels are pinching you and you can feel pink lipstick on your teeth? Keep things simple so your look can be as stress free as possible.

When it comes to shoes, you can never go wrong with a sensible heel (closed toe, with a relatively low heel) . As for makeup, a natural look is a great go to!

BCBGeneration Levonne Pump, $49.95

This bone heel is a great one to have in your collection simply because it works well with so many outifts.

ColourPop, A Boo, $6.00
