What to wear for an INTERVIEW?

Updated: Oct 18, 2018

Isn't this the big and first question we ask ourselves as soon as we have an interview coming?

Let me tell you something Ladies and let's be real. Unfortunately, we still live in 2018 in a world where men have it easier than women in the job field.

It is even sadder that as soon as something happens, they always try or tend to put the blame on women first.

Have you noticed that the first thing they would tend say is "how was she dressed?"...

It's not fair that women still have to defend themselves so hard in 2018, but I guess that's what we get for living in a world predominantly run by men.

Of course you guys can feel free to jump in and let me know what you think and what type of outfit you would rock.

By the way, if you want to spend on a new outfit for an interview without spending too much, I think H&M and Zara are good stores, especially H&M.

I had the chance to work in the retail business and know that some type of fabrics might look good from far away, but are a big "NO NO" for the corporate world once you try them on. If you know that you have some curves going on, go with something either flowy or a tight fabric other than something that will accentuate your curves.

And avoid those plunging V-Neck that are really on trend right now. Leave for a night out.

I'd rather wear plain and basics colors for an interview. Cause you never know who is interviewing you.

If it's hot outside, and I don't feel like wearing a blazer, I would wear a pair of pants (usually black or navy blue) with a shirt either light blue, light pink or white. Light grey would be fine too.

If it's a little chilly, I would defintely had a little blazer...but you don't need the blazer to be all matchy matchy with the pants you have on. If I wear black pants, I can wear a whie blouse and then even put a light grey blazer.

Also, I understand that all those see-through tops are really on trend in fashion right now, but for an interview, you might wanna "let Victoria keep that Secret" if I may express myself that way. For me, that's a NO.

I am tall. So a dress or a skirt that would look long on an average-height person, will tend to be short on me. So, if I want to wear a dress, I have to make sure that it's really long (meaning at least at my knees level).

Lastly, of course you can wear makeup, but just don't wear the whole store on your face, especially on your interview day....I mean, I've seen some girls out there and in my mind, I was like "what are you doing?"

What do you think guys? I really want to hear from you on this.
