The first steps of selection are behind you. You passed the tests, the cases studies and your application went forward. Now it’s time to meet your next boss face to face. Regardless of your immaculate curriculum vitae, we need to bring back this old saying: You will never get a second opportunity to make a good first impression. So finding what to wear for a job interview is crucial. The way you dress reflects on the way people react to you. And more important, if you look good, you feel good!

Be yourself

At this moment is essential that you wear something that you feel comfortable in and that demonstrates your personality. Just don’t try to be someone you’re not. For example, if you never wear heels or skirts, don’t wear them to the interview, even if you think you would look fab. But of course, if being yourself means wearing tracksuit pants, an old T-shirt and flip-flops, then dismiss this advice and go directly to our next one!

Look polished

Whatever you decide to wear, make sure you look polished. A nice coat, beautiful shoes and bag and good quality clothes that fit you perfectly are a must. If I would choose what to wear for a job interview, it would be this look: a modern and relaxed way to wear a suit. An oversized blazer paired with tailored trousers. Add some lovely jewellery that shows your personality, and you’re ready to conquer the world!

Look smart

Whether you’re applying for a position at a formal office or a more casual one, it never hurts to look smart. Pantsuits are very on-trend right now so you will find plenty of great options in the stores. We love this all-white styling, it just a smart new approach to the good and old office-look.

Look confident

Are you still asking what to wear for a job interview? Maybe, this is your look. This satin midi skirt paired with a simple but beautiful striped sweater will make you look fabulous. Midi heels are the right complement here because you want to show some modesty in an interview.

Look classic

Prefer classic tailoring for your job interview. You can adapt the classic look to your personality with trendy accessories that will give an edge to your outfit while still look chic and professional. Remember to choose your outfit in advance so you won’t have any last-minute surprise or stress. Your job interview outfit will cause the first impression before you even open your mouth so you must look impeccable.
