I figured loads of my readers to be in the same predicament as me (job hunting, inexperienced and insecure) so I thought you would benefit from me sharing my thoughts on what to wear for a job interview! :-D For me personally, it helps BUNDLES if I’m wearing something that makes me feel chique. Major confidence boost. And confidence is (almost) everything when trying to convince someone of your abilities, at least for me.
I wanted to wear a blazer, since blazers are like professional dressing 101. I have exactly two proper blazers, a white one and a black one. And since I ended up wearing this dress (printed yet not too in-your-face, summer appropriate, not too revealing), the white one seemed the obvious choice. Also, white just looks really great on me. And my boyfriend once bought me the white blazer (+ matching pants) and keeps insisting I wear it because he thinks it’s dead sexy, so I did! Sometimes one needs to dress sexily to keep the manpanion happy, or so I was told.
Another conundrum I had to face was whether or not to wear sandals. Sandals aren’t exactly work appropriate in my book, but the function I was interviewing for was quite relaxed and youthful and shiz so I thought they would soften the blazer a bit. The watch was also a conscious choice to keep the outfit young: it’s my new Swatch Chrono Plastic, and I L.O.V.E. how clean and white it looks. This one’s actually waterproof! PERFECT TO WITHSTAND THE TEARS THAT YOU’LL SHED WHEN YOU DON’T GET HIRED
