Dress for an Interview Do’s and Don’t



Generally, it’s best to look business-like and professional for an interview, you make an impression within the first few minutes of an interview, so it’s best to leave a good lasting impression.


Don’t go overboard with the makeup, and try minimising jewelries, heavy jewellery and make up can be distracting.  Ladies don’t go for low cleavage as well, remember you want to keep it very professional to keep a lasting impression. Professional means: No jeans, trainers and no T-shirts, even if you are allowed to wear Business casual. For guys don’t wear garish distracting ties, keep it smart and simple. Simple blouses and shirts, stripes or plain, no distracting patterns.


For women, you might want to pick a statement dress, a blouse, or a dress pants, and a blazer. If you go for a pair of skirt make sure it’s hemline, it should not be more than an inch above the knee. If you can’t make up your mind about colours, you can’t go wrong with black, you can also try navy and brown, It’s a safe choice. You can accessorise with a scarf to add a little colour.


Men will want to go with Slacks, tie, a nice crispy shirt and Suit Jackets or a Sweater. Dark and sober colours are good, and cotton material always work giving you that crispy and smart look.


Don’t forget the shoes, ladies can wear heels, but not too high and no fancy shoes, keep it smart, sensible and polished too.


Finally wear your best smile and wear your confidence! That’s the number one fashion tip for a winning interview, remember if you look good you will feel good.
