With September issues hitting newsstands, fall fashion trends are being revealed. It’s also time for those whose internships are ending, and they are trying to land their dream job. Dressing for an interview is a tricky game that isn’t necessarily everyone’s favorite to play. So breathe easy, take a look through the slideshow ahead, and go get ‘em.
For companies that have a business or business casual dress code, keep your look basic and conservative for the first interview. Think what you’d normally wear to work, dressed up a bit.
If you’re interviewing at a place where everyone comes to work in jeans and flannels, you don’t want to show up in a black suit—it will signal that you won’t fit in or don’t understand the company culture.
If you are interviewing at a place where the casual Friday options are just about every day but they don’t allow jeans. The best option is to wear khaki pants, loose fitted shirt or blouse with an added blazer to top the outfit off.
Finally, if you are interviewing in the afternoon and then planning to go out that same night, you will need a day to night dress. Something that isn’t over the top, but something that also signifies that keeps you chic around the clock.
Fall fashion is fun to look at, try on, and also put together your own style while using the season’s top colors. Here’s the color guide, courtesy of Pantone.com
