Get the Job: What to Wear for an Interview

When interviewing for a new job, it’s all about making sure that you look as polished as your resume to create that lasting first impression. If you are looking to take your career to the next level in the new year, here’s what you should wear to land the position of your dreams!

Dress Code: Business

What to wear on an interview1
In a conservative environment, make sure you dress as professionally as possible. Stick with clean lines, neutral colors and classic pieces like dresses, slacks, blazers and pumps. Your goal is to look buttoned-up and show how professional and put together you are in person and on paper.

If you’re interviewing in a casual environment, show how much you care about the role by making an effort with your outfit. A loose fitting blouse paired with a dark wash jean is the perfect casual chic choice for this type of interview. Opt for a cute flat or short heel to look polished without appearing too serious.

  1. Great outfits! But what would you recommend for those of us who need to dress for business or creative but would rather not bare our ankles/calves?

    • Hi CC! Try pairing tights and go for opaque if you’d like more coverage. Trousers will also work well if you feel more comfortable in pants. Hope this helps! XOXO

  3. I received the Dita Colorblock dress in my last fix. The colors in the dress are white, pink and blue. What color shoes would you recommend with the dress.

    • Hi there! The Dita dress in those colors would look great paired with a tan pump or flats. The tan shoe elongates the leg and keeps the emphasis on the dress. Happy styling!

Leave love!
