today’s question: “what would you wear to an interview? “
it all depends on the company and the weather. i thinks it’s important that no matter where you interview you feel like yourself. you want to feel confident and comfortable. the outfits below below are based on my personal style and the fact that it’s winter and i live in nyc. i chose one fashionable and one laid back company to dress for.
kate spade new york: they are all about the bright colors and fun shapes. i would wear this red ponte dress from uniqlo (maybe with a bow belt), these black heels (love the stripe!) from kate spade, uniqlo’s heat tech tights, a hot pink coat, big leather bag and a cool ring.
kinfolk magazine: they are uncomplicated, down to earth and easy going. i would wear dark denim (jcrew’s toothpick jeans fits so well), a heeled boot, a striped shirt, army green jacket (i’ll take a cab) and this jack spade bag would be perfect to hold my ipad and papers.
here’s what i would wear if i had an interview with, let’s say…anthropogie! first, study what colors that brand is drawn to. loosely base your outfit on something that would be seen in their store (i know anthro likes texture, pattern, layers, color). but most importantly, wear something you love and that tells a story about you!
i think it’s a little obvious to wear a decked out anthropologie outfit to the interview, so i would probably wear something with a similar vibe and then pair it with some accessories from their store. and remember, a manicure is a must.
shop these items: Urban Outfitters asymmetrical coat, Marc by Marc Jacobs striped dress, Anthropologie shiny mini-wedges, American Apparel bright pink tights, Baggu canvas ipad case, Candystore Collective wolf ring.
