What To Wear To A Formal Interview

  • You want to dress to impress, but for a formal interview it’s best to stay safe and stick to neutral tones like black or grey with a pop of subtle colour.
  • Stick to the classics, a blazer and smart trousers. These straight leg trousers will flatter your curves, whilst bringing you in at the waist to create a professional look. Pop a patterned blouse on under your blazer to allow your personality to shine through, we’re loving this dalmatian print blouse ATM.
  • If two pieces aren’t your vibe, opt for a dress. This floral wrap dress is an appropriate length for a formal environment and will have you feeling comfortable and professional at the same time!

What To Wear For A Smart-Casual Interview

  • Lots of companies now have a ‘smart-casual’ dress code, make sure you research the company you are interviewing at to get a sense of their company culture – tailor your outfit to this. If you’re interviewing at a more creative company, don’t be afraid to inject some personality into your look.
  • We love these tapered trousers as a more casual alternative, they’re flattering and fashionable, giving you the confidence to ace your interview. A more floaty option is a pair of cropped culottes (a staple for any work wardrobe FYI).
  • Pair with a colourful blouse to add a splash of colour to your look, add a finishing touch to your outfit with a smart coat/jacket. A belted jacket will bring you in at the waist, creating an hourglass figure and will polish off your outfit perfectly,

  • If you’ve got an interview in retail, particularly fashion retail you have more opportunity to show your own personal style. Retail companies tend to have a more relaxed dress code (don’t forget to do your research!).
  • Put the suit away and get out a plus size patterned shirt dress. This brush stroke print looks effortlessly smart and will leave you feeling comfortable and confident.
  • Not feeling a dress? These check trousers are perfect for a more casual interview. They’re bang on trend, yet they still add a professional edge to your outfit. Paired with a simple roll neck top or a more statement smock blouse, you’ll be good to go!
