Every woman knows that the most stressful part of job interview is preparing, especially choosing what to wear. With many companies demanding business casual wear, it’s hard to know what exactly to wear for the interview.

Whether you like it or not, but it’s true that first impression is formed within first thirty seconds. Your appearance is the first what others notice about you, so how you dress for the job interview have to be more important than you think.

However, nowadays our society is less conservative about dress code than several decades ago; some companies in different industries still require dressing more conservatively. For others, it’s not a surprise to find colleges wearing T-shirts, shorts, and flip-flops.

To avoid making a poor first impression, let’s see some tips for any interview outfit, regardless of the industry.

  • Business professional (law, finance, marketing, consulting, business)

This field is most formal, so better to opt for a classic black or navy suit. Footwear should also be classical: a pair of nude or black pumps with strictly close-toe is a perfect choice. Skirt has to be knee length or below. For pencil skirt, it’s better to taper inward toward the knee. Otherwise, it will look disheveled. Don’t forget about nude or black pantyhose. To spice things up, you can still wear classic red lip, but avoid colors and load items in your clothes.

  • Business casual (PR, advertising, logistic, editorial, real estate)

First and foremost, ask your HR about the dress code, so you can better consider what to wear for a job interview. If you’re interviewing for the more casual work environment, choose a classic pullover over a button down combo with a pair of skinny pants. Working in an industry that is known for being casual is not a reason to cut yourself some slack and look inappropriate.

  • Fashion casual (fashion, PR, advertising, beauty, startup, design)

Fashion sphere is similar to casual, but a bit more trendy and creative. In this case, try a bit more pizzazz. This attractive combination of glamor and vitality helps your personality shine through. For instance, it might be a classic combination of black and white, but with the stylish pattern. Keep in mind, knee-length skirts are still encouraged. But, on the other hand, feel free to add bright shoes and sparkly necklace.

General tips to avoid making bad first impression:

  • Find out the company’s culture and typical dress code.
  • Invest in “winning outfit”. Buy a few outfits that are comfortable for you and work-appropriate for the company. Also, invest in comfortable shoes. Don’t disregard your feet! Low and conservative heels or power flats can be the best option.
  • Don’t use perfumes and pay attention to accessories.
  • Make sure your outfit is suitable for comfortable sitting and working.
  • Pay attention to your grooming: look nicely from head to toe.
