What's appropriate in the real world??

Wondering what is appropriate to wear to an interview? First consider what type of job you are interviewing for. If you are interviewing for a place where you will have to dress business formal during the day make sure you dress business formal for your interview! You should not have any heavy make-up on (only the basics! that means no heavy eye-liner either!) and minimal jewelry. Try not to wear extremely bright outfits either that will make you stand out in the wrong way. You want to look neat and organized just like you should be for the position that you are interviewing for. Heels are a definite must with a business formal interview but no ridiculous heels. Sling-backs are perfect. I know you girls are smart and will wear something classy! Don't feel obligated to wear some sort of suit, you can wear a dress or a skirt and top just make sure they are not too short. Just remember to keep it simple. Less is definitely more!

Okay, now for you business casual dressers. If you are dressing business casual you can wear anything from a dress or skirt/shirt combo, to some type of khaki pants. You still want to follow the less is more. Don't wear a lot of jewelery, no crazy hair dos, and minimal on the make-up. You do have the option of wearing flats, which is good. Not sandals, but dressy flats. I would suggest to not wear anything with brand names on it because believe it or not, your interviewees will definitely be paying attention and judging you based on that. You are lucky, however, because you can be a little more creative and fun with your outfits!

For the rest of you, you have so many options but you have to remember not to look sloppy. You always want to look neat but you should dress for the job you are interviewing for. For example, I had an interview for a fashion position and I have a hot pink streak in my hair but I left it out because that shows some character and my style which is what those people are looking for. I would probably wear either a sundress or some type of skinny jeans/flowy shirt outfit.

Just make sure that you bring the best of your personalities out because that's the most important thing!
