Men and Women have it different requirements for dressing for an interview. It’s best to talk about what not to wear rather than what to wear. It gives a better guideline for both men and women. Here are a few examples:
Shoes: Women- open toed or sandal styled heels with an open back are not professional. Professionally dressed attire requires closed shoes that are no more than 3 inches high, usually in dark colors. Men- shoes should have laces and thin leather sole. Most importantly the shoes match the color of your belt.
Suits: This applies to both men and women. A crisp, clean and well-tailored suit. The basic colors to stick with are Black, Navy or Grey. Don’t pitch up to any event in jean and a casual t-shirt. Or a tie that’s loud or a skirt that’s too short. If you are doubting what you are wearing for an interview for example, that’s something you probably don’t want to and shouldn’t wear.
Jewelry: Women- Any facial piercings are not professional and should be hidden by invisible studs or simply taken out. Rings and necklaces should be to a minimum. One ring on each hand is allowed. Keep away from bold and big types of jewelry. Men- big shiny watches, earrings and necklaces are probably not the best option. Keep it clean and classy.
On the first day it’s always better to be over dressed than under dressed. A dress suit will always do the job stick to dark colors until you sass out the dress code. Keep it clean and classy. Have at least 2 pairs of black dress pants and blazers and pair them with different blouse colors. This way you have a new outfit for each day of the week.
