Job interviews are nerve-racking, to say the least. Aside from prepping answers for a myriad of potential questions, you’re also wondering what to wear to a job interview that will help leave that lasting impression. While the answer may seem clear for typically corporate office jobs, the options become a little more open-ended with creative and freelance occupations.
We may not be able to help you with your interview responses, but we can definitely aid you in the wardrobe department. We want to make sure your outfit is ready for battle, so we asked Style Panel to help inspire us with stylish, yet professional job interview outfit options.
One Chic Mom’s Iva Grbesic believes in knowing your industry before deciding what to wear. Though she chooses a classic suit, she plays with jewellery pieces to glam up her look. Both A Fashion’s Love Affair Cara McLeay and Suburban Faux-Pas’ Krystin Lee consider adding prints, textures and pops of colour like orange and yellow to your interview ensemble to showcase your personal style. And though we’re all striving to make a memorable impression, With Love Gabrielle‘s Marta Tryshak reminds us to always wear something you feel good in and true to your personality. No accessory beats confidence when it comes to meeting your future employer.
