How you dress for an interview is very important to the employer you are trying to sell yourself to. You want to sell the best of your best skills, this includes dressing to show how professional you are. Employers like the professional look, they want to make sure you are someone they can count on and dressing like a slob is not going to help the situation.
When it comes to dressing for an interview you want to dress appropriately and be comfortable. You need to show that you breath confidence and you can not do that in clothes you are not comfortable in. So make sure look is appealing and comfortable.
How to Dress for a Job Interview – For women
For women, there are two different type of women, girly and not girly. If you see yourself as more girly I would go with a nice skirt and matching blouse. I think white and black are perfect combination; black skirt and white shirt. Make sure you wear your hair up so no distractions occur. This is a mistake I have made in my own interviews. The employer said my hair was distracting, so just a tip for you. If you are comfortable wearing heals by all means go for it, but if you want to be comfortable it would be just fine to wear flats.
If you see yourself as more of a tomboy or a girl that doesn’t dress up often I would go with some nice business pants. The ones that are black with white linings running down are perfect, very classy and comfortable. Make sure to have a nice top like I mentioned before I would go with white but if you like more color by all means go for it. Black and white just give off a business vibe. When it comes to the shoes don’t wear heals if you are not comfortable walking in them. Remember you want to show your confidence. Wear some nice flats and your outfit is complete.

How to Dress for a Job Interview – For men
Being a man and dressing for an interview is very simple. The perfect attire would be a suit or business pants with a shirt and tie. Make sure you don’t dress to classy. If the company isn’t high glass you probably don’t need a suit so a nice shirt and tie will do the trick. When it comes to shoes men usually wear loafers and I would stick with black, keep it simple. Don’t over dress but don’t under dress either. You need to find the perfect balance, and you won’t fail if you dress from Jos.A.Bank
