How To Dress For a Job Interview

Trying to figure out the right outfit for your upcoming job interview? If yes, you're not alone. First off, congratulations! Scheduling an interview is a big step towards landing your dream job. But of course, you still need to prepare well enough to make it successful. As you probably guessed, it's super important to make a good impression on your potential employer. And of course, everything starts with your appearance — more like what you wear and how you carry yourself.

So what's the point? Well, it's pretty much what you think — the right outfit is key to making an awesome first impression. As you already know, a candidate wearing a suit and tie coupled with a pocket square is more likely to make a much better impression than someone wearing shabby jeans and a t-shirt. Professionalism is key!

With this in mind, here are few handy tips to keep in mind when choosing an outfit for your upcoming job interview.



Of course, the formal dress code never fails to top the list. This is the point where you'll want to dress in a way that's considered suitable for work. Can't figure out what to wear? Well, there's no doubt that a well-fitting suit (classic or three-piece) will work great. At this point, you won't be wrong to stick with neutral, dark colors like brown, black, grey and navy blue. It's also great to accessorize the suit with a good looking tie, tie clip and pocket square — the perfect trio! Don't hesitate to browse through our store if you're in need of classic ties and premium quality pocket squares — we got you covered! Finally, be sure to finish the look with black socks and neatly polished shoes. Now you're all set to win!



How about opting for something relaxed and presentable? As you probably guessed, the big idea is to replace your three-piece suit with some casual stuff (think khakis, dress pants, and a sweater). It's also an excellent idea to spice up your outfit with some nice accessories — rings and bracelets are sure to work great! It's however in your best interest not to go overboard here — just one ring and a couple bracelets should do. And finally, you won't be wrong to finish the look with a clean pair of well-fitting sneakers.



Looking to land a startup-type job? If yes, you'll be happy to hear that these companies are more into relaxed, easy-going outfits. If you're a bit familiar with start-ups, you'll relate when we say their jobs involve long days riddled with unforeseen tasks and responsibilities. In such a work environment, it's only normal to wear clothing that's super comfortable — think a well-fitting shirt and nice pair of jeans. It's also great to add a classy blazer to the outfit especially if you're unsure of the company's etiquette — better safe than sorry.


Final Words

To sum it up, stick to the outfit that truly works for you; more like one that looks and feels great. Of course, after doing your homework on the company, you should be able to dress to impress potential employers and storm your interview. Good luck!
