I was wondering if I could wear a brown pencil skirt, with burgundy shirt, some heels, and add a tight like this one:Pattern tights from Best Sock Drawer to an interview (notice the interview is at a fashion store). Is it ok to dress a little more fun/free since it's for a fashion company? Or maybe would this clothes look too "matchy" and boring? What's your suggestions? Tks!

Do you mind sharing more info on what the position is? If you are going to be a sales clerk then by all means this is fine. If you are going to be management I would stay away from it and err on the side of professional (i.e. no polka dot stockings). They always say dress for the job you want. What do you think the person in the job you want wears on a daily basis? Think about that and that could help.

For me the polka dot tights are okay, as long as the heels are low heels. Conservative is always better for first encounters, interview or otherwise. If you insist on wearing those heels thenn wear brown or black tights.

You should make an outfit post on Chictopia so we can get a better idea of what your outfit looks like! :)

When I interview people I notice that a lot of younger girls tend to wear what they think is business casual, but it usually comes across as cheap and tacky. If you are interviewing for a fashion job make that your clothing choices are tasteful with a funky flair that represents your own personal style.

If we were you, we would give the polka dots a miss. The way you have described the outfit, it just doesn't sound right and yes a bit matchy-matchy. If you have to make a statement, we would suggest you go with a necklace or a nice bag. Speak it with your accessories, and maybe even your hairstyle. 

 

Though what lizolsen2011 said about dressing the part is a gem!

I find it's always a good idea to dress a little bit more conservately on the first encounter. However, a few funky acessories that express your personal style are a good way to give your outfit a little bit of an edge. (Especially if the postition is fashion-related!)

I don't think it is a good idea to wear patterned tights to a job interview.

Usually it's not a good idea to wear patterned tights, but you can push the envelope just a bit since you're trying to get work at a clothing store, as you also need to illustrate that you do understand color, styling and fashion.  

I would advise that you to make absolutely sure that the entire outfit is professional, if the tights stand out too much then it's wrong...

Keep your jewelry small and minimal (meaning small and in small amounts), make sure that you're hair is somewhat "corporate" (meaning buns or neat ponytails with minimal styling) and your accessories are appropriately sized for what you need (meaning stylish tote for documents and other needs or stylish yet professional handbag if you just need your phone etc).  Good luck
