What Not to Wear on an Interview
By Alison Doyle, About.com Guide
Flip-flops or sneakers.
- Underwear (bras, bra straps, briefs, boxers, etc.) that is visible. Don't wear any underwear that shows - even if your bra straps match your top.
Skirtsthat are too short.
- Pants that are too low-rise or too tight.
- Blouses that are too low-cut or too short - don't show your cleavage or your belly.
- More on underwear and low-rise pants - make sure the top of your thong, if you wear one, doesn't show above your pants.
- A classic interview suit that will last for years is a better investment than the latest trendy attire that will only last a season.
- Your idea of trendy might not match the interviewer's perspective on what's fashionable, so err on the side of dressing conservatively when you interview.
- Shop Wisely - Visit outlets, shop sales, shop online, and use coupons to get the most mileage out of your interview budget.
- Plan Ahead - If you have that one classic interview suit in your closet, you'll be prepared for an unexpected interview, regardless of when it occurs.
