Going for a job interview soon? Don’t just prepare answers to questions that you think you might be asked. While it’s important to show that you’re well-prepared, making a good impression starts from the moment you walk into the room. You already know not to make a faux pas by being sloppy, but need to find a way to be memorable.
Here are five fail-safe types of outfits you can wear that will help you make your mark with the recruiters you’ll be meeting.
Sweater with smart trousers
If the job isn’t terribly formal, you can look smart in a sweater and tailored trousers. Choose soft, muted hues and pair with tasteful flats or black heels. Avoid wool sweaters — you wouldn’t want to be uncomfortable during the interview.
This is a staple for any interview. The catch: You don’t have to be sedate with the colour. If you’re going loud with this piece, though, tone it down with a blazer, and a classic skirt in dark colours. Do avoid showing cleavage, and don’t opt for light colours and sheer fabrics.
Navy blue blazers
Bold statement dresses
