When it comes to going to a job interview, it’s important to be dressed up appropriately because your attire is the first thing which comes to notice when you enter the interview area.
Many industry sectors are becoming more flexible these days about the dress codes, and even encouraging a smart-casual look over the rigmarole of wearing a suit or western formals.
The following outfit ideas can help solving your dilemma about what to wear for an Interview –
Trousers All The Way!
You can team up the classic straight fit trousers with a light colour – collared shirt with low heel ballerinas. Pleated trousers are a rage these days which make you look classy as well as stylish. So you can even pair a pair of pleated trousers with a smartly fitted blouse tucked in with a leather belt and loafers.
Care to Wear A Dress Instead?
Opt for formal dresses which are not too short or revealing. Team up a knee length solid coloured or subtle printed dress with low heeled shoes and a smart bag which would make you look more confident.
Skirts Can Formal Too
Pencil skirts not only make one look slimmer and taller but are a perfect alternative to trousers for that feminine look. Make sure the skirt ends just below or just above the knees for a more appropriate look. Team up a formal pencil skirt with a collared shirt or a blouse and a blazer to make a sharp impression.
If you don’t feel comfortable enough in Western Formals, then Indian formal ethnic wear is the perfect choice for you. Go for a light coloured or subtle printed salwar kameez or a solid kurta with leggings and jodhpuri chappals for that sophisticated look.
- Make sure that you don’t apply very heavy Make-up: a Kajal and lip-gloss / lipstick would be enough.
- Keep the accessories minimal with a watch and pearl earrings. Carry a smart handbag which is big enough to keep your wallet and important documents.
Last but not the least- be confident, prepare for the possible interview questions in advance and do try on your outfit a couple of days in advance to make sure it’s right. On the morning of the interview you want to be focused on the job and your experience, not worrying about finding a more flattering skirt.
