Let’s Talk About Interview Dress Code

You’ve scored an interview: Hooray! Now time to think about the clothes you will wear to exude professionalism.  The key is to feel comfortable and confident!
Regardless of the job you are interviewing for, it is important to dress appropriately. You will never regret feeling overdressed but I guarantee you will regret feeling underdressed
Basic tips
* No shorts ~ even if you are interviewing to be a raft guide, I strongly recommend wearing khaki pants and a collared shirt
* Hygiene is paramount: shower the morning of
* Go easy on the perfume and cologne ~ I once had to excuse myself from an interview to get water because the candidate’s perfume was causing that tickle in your throat you can’t stop!
* The length of a skirt or dress should allow you to sit comfortably without the need to feel that you should tug it down
Easy: Find a nice pair of black slacks, a solid color top (blue is a universally flattering color )and a black blazer, sports coat or sweater. Add a pair of plain black dress shoes and you have a polished look. ***Depending on the job, a coat may not be required. If not, be mindful of how your top fits when standing, walking and sitting
Step It Up: Most major department stores have a suit section. Find a suit that you can wear for multiple occasions to get more bang for your buck ????
If you do not already have that go-to interview outfit hanging in your closet, it’s time to shop.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on an outfit. Thrift stores are a great place to find individual pieces to put together a strong look.
Has it been awhile since you tried your go-to on? I recommend taking it out for a spin. Does it still fit? Are you comfortable and confident in it? If not, try the suggestions above.
