Girls: What to wear for a job interview

 In Interview Tips, Student and Graduate Tips

Dressing for an important job interview is pretty daunting. It’s all about finding the perfect balance… too smart you’ll risk looking stuffy and corporate, too causal you might not be taken seriously. Making a good impression is vital, so scroll down for six interview essential items that’ll ensure you land your dream role. 

1. A Midi Heel


Heels that are too high and impossible to walk in are only going to make you more nervous and uncomfortable when heading to your interview. So play it safe in some stylish midi-heels. These suede mules are so on trend and will look great with practically everything.

2. A Silk Shirt 


You can’t go wrong with a silk shirt for the perfect balance of put-together-chic. This Reiss one has a cute print that’s a little more memorable than your standard white version.

3. A Hero Jacket


A chic, well-cut jacket will elevate any look. This French Connection one is a steal at £32 and its boxy fit will give you the instant cool factor whilst still looking professional.

4. Power Trousers


Never underestimate the power of a great pair of trousers. These khaki cigarette ones from ASOS will look the business with both flats or heels and a cute cami. Gold jewellery always works well with khaki greens too.

5. A Shirt Dress


A good shirt dress will really take you places. They’re the perfect balance of smart and fashionable and can easily be dressed up or down. This one has a tie waist that’ll stop it from looking too shapeless and will give you a flattering silhouette.

6. A Fits-Everything Tote
