How to Dress for an Interview


There are a few simple rules of thumb to keep in mind when it comes to selecting the right clothes for that all-important job interview. Let's face it-People make all kinds of instinctive judgments about others based on first impressions, and the potential boss interviewing job candidate is no different. With so much riding on the first impression you present to a prospective employer, the question, "what to wear?" takes on greater significance than usual in a job interview.

When it comes time to pick a suit for the interview, here's the rule: Think conservative. A traditional dark blue or a dark gray suit with pinstripes is a great way to present an air of confidence and aptitude, without straying at all from the bounds of good taste. For upper- and middle-level executive positions, an accompany vest may very well be in order. Also, when picking a suit, consider the image you wish to present. According to men's fashion experts, a pinstripe suit makes you seem more authoritative, while a solid suit will make you more likable.

When it comes time to pick out a shirt, here's the rule: You can't go wrong with white. This is especially true if you are unsure about the personality of the person with whom you will be interviewing, as most candidates usually are. A white shirt makes sure you look properly business-like, without over dressing. If you feel you know you prospective employer well-enough that it would be appropriate to wear a shirt of light blue, or off-white, or even a shade of light green or pink, then you can certainly do so. Just remember to stick with solid-colors.

Finally, the tie you choose will help cement your image in the mind of the interviewer, so here's the rule on ties: No cartoons. Hopefully, you already have a good selection of ties and among that collection a variety of ties that would be appropriate for a job interview, and unless your interview is in the fashion or music industry, you'll want to select a tie in a conservative color with a traditional pattern. And it is usually best to stay away from ties decorated with your favorite logo. Just imagine showing up at the job interview with your Red Sox tie around your neck only to see the signed Derek Jeter jersey on the office wall during the interview.

The most important thing during any job interview is presenting your self as a capable person, worthy of the job. The clothes you choose to wear go a long way in helping you get that pointy across.
