Today I had the honor of presenting to a classroom of Marietta College students on what is appropriate to wear during an interview. It inspired me to write about this topic for a few reasons:
1. Show an appropriate interview look.
2. Demonstrate how to transform your interview look into your own style for a later purpose.
The first image shows an appropriate outfit for an interview. Many people think you have to wear a matching suit but that’s not necessarily the case. I kept my accessories minimal and the colors more toned down. I love this Chanel-inspired tweed jacket from Talbots, but this is not my typical style. So I put together a look that is more me so that I have multi-use.
I love this jumpsuit I acquired last summer from Peyton & Peppy. I love the mix of something classic with something edgy. I also included a warm tone with my shoe to add some interest.
And you know how I can never get enough of Lynne and Lucille jewelry. These earrings are made of hair-on-hide and I found them at Wit & Whimzy. I love the texture it adds to the tweed jacket without competing with it.
Lastly, in honor of speaking at Marietta College, I used one of their tee shirts to show a semi-professional way to show team spirit. You can tie something professional with an item that’s more casual.
If you have any questions about what to wear on interviews or how to make business wear more your style, please feel free to hit me up!
