Deciding what to wear for a job interview
Dressing appropriately for an interview ranks high in stressful dressing situations. It always comes down to balancing looking professional and showing your personality. Curating a look that aligns with this is not easy, and there's one central question worth considering before you begin. Are you interviewing at a corporate company or a startup? If it's the former, you may want to play it safe and show up in formal business attire (think: blazers, suits, trousers, pencil skirts, etc.).
We recommend dressing one step above what you would typically wear daily in your job. So if you wear business casual, we recommend you wear a suit to the interview. If you wear jeans daily to your job, then dress pants, and a nice blouse would be appropriate for the discussion. However, we always say it's better to overdress than underdress for an interview. You tend to feel your best when you look your best!
Millennial-led startup companies tend to take more liberties with their dress codes and welcome more open threads.
