Believe it or not, your appearance actually goes a long in determining if you get a job or not. The first impression you make on a potential employer is incredibly important. When you meet a potential employer for the first time they immediately form an opinion of you based on what you’re wearing and how you carry yourself.
A lot of people know this and so they get very nervous dressing up for interviews. I used to spend hours just trying to pick out the right outfit for my interviews and subsequent meetings. This was before I figured it out. I’ll share with you my “template” for always looking perfect for my interviews and meetings.
Here are the safest and best looks you can go for.
Black Dress and Tights
A tasteful “little black dress” is the hallmark of a simple yet refined business wardrobe. Invest in a quality dress that skims the knee. A dress with a structured fit and nice details is professional yet still modern.
To give your outfit some life, pair the dress with simple textured tights. Anything that resembles outright fishnets is not work-place appropriate. Finish your outfit with a pair of black heels and a brown handbag for a classic, timeless business formal look.

Although it’s important that your interview attire is professional and conservative, that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with color. A tasteful dress in an interesting color, such as a muted turquoise or deep red, is a good addition to your interview wardrobe.
You can forget about adding jewellery. Maybe just simple stud earring.
With a bright-colored dress, it is more important than ever that the piece covers you appropriately. All you need to round off a dress like this is a pair of black heels or black ballet flats.
The Blazer Look
A navy blue blazer is a great addition to your interview wardrobe. Not only can you wear a blazer on numerous occasions, but it works well with many different outfits – over a button down, with a blouse, and even with a dress, for example. The grey collarless jacket with three-quarter length sleeves is a less formal look.
