What Not to Wear on an Interview

By , About.com Guide


Flip-flops or sneakers.
  • Underwear (bras, bra straps, briefs, boxers, etc.) that is visible. Don't wear any underwear that shows - even if your bra straps match your top.
  • Shorts.
  • Jeans.
  • Skirts that are too short.
  • Pants that are too low-rise or too tight.
  • Blouses that are too low-cut or too short - don't show your cleavage or your belly.
  • More on underwear and low-rise pants - make sure the top of your thong, if you wear one, doesn't show above your pants.
Trendy vs. Classic
  • A classic interview suit that will last for years is a better investment than the latest trendy attire that will only last a season.
  • Your idea of trendy might not match the interviewer's perspective on what's fashionable, so err on the side of dressing conservatively when you interview.
  • Shop Wisely - Visit outlets, shop sales, shop online, and use coupons to get the most mileage out of your interview budget.
  • Plan Ahead - If you have that one classic interview suit in your closet, you'll be prepared for an unexpected interview, regardless of when it occurs.
Fashion T says: I concur,  I believe that your first impression sets the tone if a call back will be coming. Also, now that most corporations are doing phone interviews first, its even more important that your makeup & hair is on point.  I have an interesting job posting with tips coming shortly.  I am here to answer your questions on where to shop and what to wear..
