A Surprising Place to Find Your Next Interview Outfit
Whether you’ve finally applied for your dream job or re-entering the workforce, you want to make the perfect impression. Interviewing skills are vital and doing research sets you apart; but the right interview clothes are a make-or-break decision. Experts say you should avoid anything too bright, too tight or too casual. Of course, you have to know the culture of your industry:: wearing banker pinstripes to a creative-startup interview might not impress, and vice versa.
If you don’t have the time or money to splurge on an interview outfit, don’t be afraid to look in your own closet for ideas. Refinery 29 has some smart suggestions:
Despite how tempting it is to go out and buy a head-to-toe look that you swear will land you the job solely based on how much confident style you’re projecting, a fresh start to the year also means a strict start on your new budget. So instead of splurging on new duds, it’s time to go through your closet with a critical eye and create that dream interview look using what you already have.
