I bet after last week's blog, you guys wore your all-star converse with confidence! That's what I like to see! This week, I wanted to give you all advice on how to dress to an interview. What you wear to an interview is extremely important because just by the way you dress, can either seal the deal or break the deal.
First off, congratulations on getting a job interview! You're just that much closer to whatever your dreams and aspirations are. When getting ready for an interview, you want to remember the rules for attire, accessories, hair, and makeup. No worries if you don't remember what the rules are. I have them ready for you right here...
Just follow these rules and you are on the fast track to nailing this interview! Alright, enough about rules, now for the exciting part..fashion. If you don't want to wear a suit, that is totally fine; however, you need to make sure that if you wear a skirt to an interview, it is just above the knee in length. Anything higher, is too scandalous for a job interview. Let me show you that just because you're wearing a knee length skirt, doesn't mean you're going to look like a grandma.
See, I was right, wasn't I? A pencil skirt, a polka dot camisole, and a black blazer is very classy and will show the interviewers that you are professional and know how to dress well. Also, don't wear heals that will make you as tall as Shaquille O'Neal. Wear modest black shoes that you will be comfortable in and not falling on your face. That would not leave a very good first impression. To accessorize, you should wear pearl earrings and to add a pop of color, use a red handbag (or whatever color you choose).
Don't forget to match your hair to your outfit. You want to make sure your hair is brushed, straightened, put up (oh Lord, just do something with it). You don't want to look like you just rolled out of bed. A simple french twist will look super classy with this outfit. Here's a quick step by step...
Also, a great makeup tip for an interview is to make it appear as if you're not wearing any makeup. Keep it modest, sheer, and light. Here's an example of what your makeup should look like..
Alright fashionholics, it's time to let the baby bird out of the nest and let them fly on their own. Good luck at your job interview. You're going to do great. Remember to always have your confidence in your back pocket and that you're beautiful no matter what, don't you ever forget it.
