How to dress for a Job Interview


…Without losing your personality.

Going to Job Interviews isn’t easy. That means that either you are unemployed or are unhappy with your current job. But you can add some fun to such a nerve racking moment by deciding what to wear. At least, it’s what I do!

Black&White is a flawless combination. You just can’t ever fail. You can add some color in your shoes or accessories, and it will be perfect. So my three suggestions are all in the same shade of color. It’s important to be memorable to your employer, but in a good way, so innovate though don’t forget common sense and sobriety.


Black pants. Everyone should have a pair. These are very simple, I tried to add the “me factor” by wearing this polka dot blouse and the black vest with a bow. Of course, the color block shoes finished the look. Actually, I never thought of mixing these garments before, especially the blouse+vest, but it turned out to be an excellent choice. Do you agree?

I cannot describe how much I love this skirt. In fact, the full midi-skirt trend is really amazing. Plain or printed, these skirts are so flattering and elegant that I simply cannot stop looking for another one, and another one! Actually, I only own this one from H&M and a dress that I bought a few years ago. And, what about that? I could never had imagined that the dress would be so IN after all this time! Fashion is really cyclic! It’s a polka dot retro dress, and I love it! I’m glad I didn’t give it away!

About this outfit specifically, I must say that it’s a powerful one. Its elegance may look through as arrogance. I have the confidence to wear it, but maybe on a second round interview. Are you with me on this?

Black pants. Oh, I have already talked about it. But, these are not only another black pair. It’s an envelope/baggy shape pants, from Benetton. My intention was to wear a more playful pair of black pants, in order to add originality to the B&W option. I opted by combining it with a loose sleeveless chiffon blouse that I bought at a local store. To tell you the truth, this was formerly a dress. But, I thought it would be of more use as a blouse. I guess I was right.

Basically, despite the pants might transmit the idea of a “relaxed” moment, the blouse and the heels make it more formal and fun at the same time.

I have to tell you that I only wore these two toned shoes once. It’s a size bigger and I just can’t walk properly. It’s a pitty. So, I am constantly thinking if ways to work around the problem. Any ideas?

Everything that you wear reveals your personality, but shoes tell more. Don’t you think? So, if the employer is not amazed by your qualities – shame on him/her – or your B&W choice, at least he can remember your shoes!

What do you think of these combinations? Would you wear? Do you like the Black&White? Tell me, I want to know!

And good luck. Some fantastic job is waiting for you! 😉
