So… I’ve done interviews a few times, but none of them were particularly professional. What I wore didn’t matter too much, so I wore some professional-looking things: button-up-ish shirt, blazer, high waisted pleated knee-length skirt, black tights, and some black patent peeptoe flats. Is this kind of outfit okay? I really need some Dos and Don’ts here…

Also, I really want to wear heels to an interview, but I don’t really like the black pointy-toe stilettos that everyone else seems to favor. Are black heeled oxfords or shoes with some color okay? Peeptoes? I wouldn’t want to look too crazy in a conservative environment…

a matching suit (either a skirt suit or a pant suit) and a power blouse. maybe try nude pumps instead of black stilettos. i would skip the peep toes.

I’d wear something like this (though not necessarily exactly in these styles or these colors, just an example):

blazer
shirt
skirt
shoes
or
dress
shoes

Tights are optional if it’s cold, and you can add a belt that goes with your shoes (not the exact same color, a different shade is probably nicer). Hope I was some help! (:

I think what you’ve listed as your usual interview wear sounds fine but just change the flats for heels. A round toe court shoe would be a good choice. Also maybe change the pleated skirt for a knee length pencil skirt, but only if you feel comfortable in pencil skirts.

The main thing is that you should be comfortable in what you’re wearing while looking smart at the same time. Discomfort in your outfit will show and it will take your attention off the interview itself, plus the employer will definetly notice.

A matching suit would be best, skirt or pant suit is fine but make sure they are tailored to your size, and a button up collared shirt in a neutral color. For shoes, almond toe shaped heels are safe bets and keep the heel at 2 in or less
