Deciding what to wear for a job interview
Dressing appropriately for an interview ranks high on the list of stressful dressing situations. It always comes down to striking a balance between looking professional whilst still showing your personality. Curating a look that aligns with this is not an easy task, and there's one major 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 every day in your job. So if you will be wearing business casual, we recommend you wear a suit to the interview. If you will be wearing jeans every day to your job, then dress pants and a nice blouse would be appropriate for the interview. 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, however, tend to take more liberties with their dress codes and welcome more relaxed threads.
