Ace the interview

Office/ work clothing 2012

First impressions always count when going for a job interview, audition or business meeting. Here I bring you some hints and tips on how to impress your potential bosses without breaking the bank.

The Dress

Dresses are always one of the top choices to wear to an interview. When it comes to length, always try to go for something that either hits right above or below the knees (you can go longer if you would like), but never go shorter. When it comes to colour, dark neutrals like black, navy, or gray usually work best. If the dress is a basic colour, pair it with fun items like a printed bag or bright shoes to make you stand out from the rest.

The Top 
Tops can be paired with either a smart pair of trousers or a smart pencil skirt. I would however recommend wearing a suit blazer or jacket. This will add more elegance and polish to your appearance.

Tweed Biker jacket £60 ASOS, Pinstriped Jacket £39.99 H&M, Burgundy Blazer £65 Topshop, Tuxedo Blazer £49.99 Zara


Why not be a little daring and add a little colour to your outfit via your shoes. They will make you stand out from the crowd especially if you are applying for a job in fashion.
