08/06/2022

back to blog

Have an interview lined up and not sure what to wear? Then look no further! We have pulled together the perfect interview outfits, so you are dressed for success. We understand making a good first impression can be quite daunting, so wearing clothes that fit the style of the interviewing company and that make you feel comfortable can make all the difference!

To make a great impression at your next job interview, check out our guide to the best women’s interview outfits for both casual and formal settings.

Interview Attire Top Tips

  • Avoid wearing uncomfortable footwear or footwear that makes you unsteady on your feet. Make sure that your footwear is closed-toe. If you want to wear heels, do but only if you feel comfortable in them and the heel size is 8cms or less.
  • For more casual interviews, you can wear jeans but opt for a darker shade like black, with a more tailored fit and no rips or distressed detailing.
  • If you’re wearing a skirt or a dress, make sure the hem falls at your knees or below. Also, if you wear them with tights, make sure they don’t have any ladders in them.
  • Wear your hair in a hairstyle that’s comfortable and one that you aren’t going to play with, or keep pushing away from your face.

What To Wear To An Interview

Best Interview Outfits for A Casual Workplace

Whether you are applying for a position at a café, or a small start-up company, your casual interview outfit still needs to have thought and effort put into it. Even if the company you’re interviewing for has a ‘casual’ dress code. For the interview and the first week at least of working there (if you’re successful), you should dress semi-formally to give a good first impression. Always try to dress above the dress code in these circumstances.

White Stripe Polo Neck Jumper

This trend-led polo neck jumper ticks all the right boxes for a successful interview outfit. Made from a soft knitted fabric and ribbed texture, featuring a stunning stripe pattern, style this polo neck jumper with a darker shade of jeggings and ballerina pumps for an effortless interview outfit.
