What are people wearing these days to job interviews? Here is some helpful advice:
From The Return of the Interview Suit, NY Times:
“… go with a pantsuit because that gives a better silhouette.” — Simon Kneen, creative director of Banana Republic.
“I’m really against pants. They look too casual in most situations.” — Designer Nicole Miller.
“… clean and simple lines — anything that doesn’t distract the interviewer from understanding the qualities you bring to the table.” — Karen Harvey, a recruiter for top fashion and retail jobs.
“ … give people something to remember. … pick a color, as opposed to wearing all gray.” — Jenna Lyons Mazeau, the creative director of J. Crew. “”
“I’m a big fan of sticking with navy or gray pinstripes.” — former designer James Purcell, who now works as an image strategist for executives and politicians.
Cost of all this?
