How to dress for an interview
What you wear to an interview can play a crucial role in determining the final outcome. First impressions count and your choice of attire can be viewed as an indicator of how serious you are about getting the job. Here’s how to choose the best outfit for a successful interview.
As a general rule, it is better to look too formal than too casual. Men can’t go wrong with a suit, and a dark two-piece is the best option for a corporate company. A plain white tailored shirt is an interview staple. Understated accessories will complete your outfit but avoid ties with garish patterns which can potentially distract the interviewer. Details are important so make sure your shoes are polished.
For women, a cotton shirt looks exceedingly sharp with trousers or a skirt. Our Executive shirt collection combines clean, feminine cuts with flattering tailoring to deliver shirts that exude power and professionalism. Avoid patterns and opt for a plain blouse or one with subtle stripes. Add a splash of colour with a silk scarf and complete the look with elegant cufflinks.
