How to Dress for an Interview: Dress For Success

How to dress for an interview is a question that people often have when preparing for a job interview that they really want to win.
The interview dress code is fairly straight forward especially for “office” or professional-type jobs.
You really can’t go wrong with wearing business attire.

For a man, this means a business suit. Not a blazer and different color pants, a two-piece suit. Choose an appropriate and matching tie. You really can’t go wrong with a good suit (think neutral or business colors like navy blue, black or dark gray).
For a woman, this can also mean a business suit or perhaps other business attire i.e. a tailored business outfit. Think conservative colors and also consider the time of year i.e. you probably don’t want to wear wool during the summer.

It really depends on the position and company you are applying for but a lot of it is common sense.

Don’t forget your shoes either! Make sure your shoes are nicely shined and are clean. Nothing is worse than wearing a nice suit but forgetting what’s below your ankles!
That includes your socks, too. No white socks with dress shoes, guys!

Finally, don’t forget hygiene. It’s best to avoid strong smelling cologne or perfume on the day of an interview. Men, don’t forget to shave.

At the end of the day, dress for success and use common sense. If you have trouble figuring out what to wear, ask someone you know who can offer correct advice.

Your dress style is certainly somewhat dependent on your industry and level of position but you really can’t go wrong with wearing business attire.

Remember that it’s better to overdress than underdress. A business suit whether you’re male or female is best for office/professional positions and helps to present a great first impression.
