So you have a big interview and you’re thinking of wearing your go-to grey pantsuit. Ladies, you don’t have to settle for the typical, boring interview attire. You can maintain your individual sense of style without being unprofessional.
Check out three ways to stay on trend and ace any interview in style.
Sheath dresses are an easy way to present yourself professionally. Accessorize with a statement necklace, reasonable pumps and a blazer and you’ll look ready to tackle whatever position you’re interviewing for! TJ Maxx always has a great and affordable variety of frocks to choose from. And now, you can even shop TJ Maxx online.
Another way to go is a midi skirt. This is a classic cut that’s reminiscent of the skirts from the 50s and 60s. Options range from feminine pleats to bold prints. If you’re worried about a print being too “loud,” choose one in a darker hue. Balance out the full skirt with a fitted top and a strappy heel or pointy pumps.
Finally, ankle length pants are on trend this spring and a really adorable way to present yourself if your style is more casual. Try it with your favorite pair of pumps and a lightweight top. This head to toe look from LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s is an effortless fashion hit.
How do you show off your style but remain professional during an interview? What pieces do you shy away from?
