What to Wear to a Job Interview

The job interview is one situation when the first impression is definitely the most important. But you don’t want what you’re wearing to take centre stage. You shouldn’t really wear a leather skirt to a corporate law firm, or a full-on suit to interview at a brand new start-up. With that in mind, I’ve posted below my thoughts on what to wear to a job interview — whether the interview is for a corporate, creative or start-up position.

Remember KISS— keep it streamlined and simple.

They’re likely looking for personality here, so go for something a little more fun and, well, you.

For this interview, best to tone down the fashion with a capital F and remind everyone you’re here because of what’s in your head, not on your shirt.

  • A cropped, sweater blazer
  • A pencil skirt
  • Textured pumps
  • A super-sized tote to carry your tablet, computer, hard drive and two phones. It helps if it’s reminiscent of a school bag—youth is key here, kids
