1. It's ok to mix textures. Fashion is a way of self expression- there's no need to sacrifice your creativity for professionalism. You can look refined and put together, while still having fun with your work wardrobe. Break away from the traditional interview uniform by mixing different textures- cashmere, wool, tweed, and plaid- with your sophisticated blazer and pencil skirt.
2. Wearing a hint of color can be warm and inviting- BUT don't go over the top with busy prints or colors that are too bold. Wear a monochromatic outfit with one contrasting element, like colored pants or a colored blazer.
3. Look approachable. Success in an interview is about your relatability, as much as it is about your skills. You want to look approachable and easy to work with- not intimidating and expensive. Play with prints that are dialed in and appropriate, but that show you have some character.
4. Try to wear a conversation starter, like a vintage chain belt or a statement necklace or silk scarf.
5. Don't stick to just black pumps. Try a burgundy, beige, navy, or tweed pump in a muted hue for a style that is just as neutral as basic black.
6. Mix and match separates already in your wardrobe. Forget the antiquated rules that you must wear only a matching black and navy skirt or pant suit. Pair that black blazer with a charcoal tweed A-line dress or that orange pencil skirt with a cropped navy blazer and ivory silk ruffle blouse.
7. Go with whatever styles fits you best and makes you feel most comfortable and confident. How you carry yourself is the true key to success- what you have on only adds to and compliments the complete package that is you!
