Wearing a pantsuit is no longer required at a job interview. But, that doesn’t mean jeans and a tee shirt will make the cut either. Here are some fool proof looks to try for your next interview.
The Dress Pant
Dress pants have changed a lot today. A skinny, tapered pant leg is a chic, modern take on the traditional straight-leg, black dress pant. Depending on the company, you could also try a subtle pattern to add some personality to your look while remaining professional. Vince’s Tapered Ankle Trousers are perfect job interview material.
The Statement Dress
A work dress doesn’t have to be black, and it doesn’t have to fit like a brown bag. The Tahari Bi-Stretch Sheath dress is sophisticated and professional, but comes in bright colors and has a flattering structure.
The Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts are often associated with librarians. But pairing a good quality skirt with a casual top or modern blouse can completely change your look. Textured skirts like Vince Camuto’s Cable Jacquard Pencil Skirt and ruffled skirts like Ted Baker’s Derosa Oversize Ruffle Pencil Skirt are a great way to add interesting detail.
You can never go wrong with a nice, fitted blazer. Whether it’s a bright color, pattern or simply black, a blazer will add an element of sophistication to any outfit. For a more casual company, a blazer is a nice way to dress up a more relaxed look. Theory’s Admiral Crepe Power Jacket is the perfect sleek and sophisticated blazer with a touch of personality.
The Chic Shoe
When it comes to a work shoe, we no longer have to wear a heel! Flat dress shoes are so popular and so chic right now. I love the Cole Haan Tali Bow Loafer! From loafers to traditional ballet flats, there are so many ways to step up your flat-shoe game.
