It’s an age-old question – what to wear to a job interview? As first impressions are so important the key is to look smart and stylish, with women’s blazers an essential to pull your look together.
While some companies may specify a dress code, for many what is appropriate to wear is open to interpretation, and depends largely on the type of job.
If you’re working in a creative industry for example they may be more relaxed about dress code, whereas other industries prefer smart business dress. Of course, regardless of the job you’ll want to make a good impression at the interview, so a chic blazer is the perfect thing.
You can’t go wrong with a classic black blazer – it’s a key addition to any woman’s wardrobe. Subtle details like a PU collar put a subtle fashion-forward spin on the simple style that may still be appropriate for an interview.
Wear yours with a simple white blouse or shirt and pencil skirt for a typically smart look. Again subtle style details can update these – think peplum waists, dogtooth prints or collar tips.
To complete the look heels are an essential – steer clear of too high platforms and strappy shoes but stick to a mid-heel court shoe that you can walk confidently in without struggling!
