With the university year over, there will be loads of you out there, fresh graduates and looking for jobs and although I'm not yet in that situation, I can imagine the stress is there and one thing I can definitely empathise is the stress of job interviews. I've experienced my fair share and there is nothing like the sweaty palms and hammering heart but most seriously, what should I wear?
Regardless of the type of job, dressing smart for the interview is essential and one of the big questions is making your outfit a little more exciting than a standard suit which don't always do females the most justice. So here are my top tips.
- Think outside the box, instead of fitted skirts, try a midi one. It's the type of material that makes it classier and paired with a polo neck jumper, they can look so classy. For summer, try a polo neck knit vest.
- In Winter it's all about dark colours, but nudes and blush tones are back in a big way. Instead of a black blazer, try a white. It will freshen up your look and make you stand out!
- A pair of court heels will transform any outfit but if you're applying for a job in the fashion industry, why not try a lace up pair of heels which are so fashionable.
- Bright pin striped trousers are another way to jazz up a standard suit. Tuck in a classic white shirt for a feminine yet put together outfit.
