What to Wear to an Interview

The Interview Outfits Guaranteed to Get You the Job

Booked the big interview but racking your brain to figure out what to wear? We've got you covered, with three chic outfits to fit both your personality and the spot you're interviewing for! Keep it classic and (relatively) simple, but don't think you're stuck with the stuffy, matching suit look. Herewith are our favorite options for your rise to the corner office.

If You Want to Wear Pants . . .

Shop this outfit, and see other options below.

Skinny black trousers are a perennial office favorite. Add a little personality to yours with a colored top, but keep the rest buttoned-up. You'll never go wrong with a classic black pump and satchel.

Clockwise from top left: Helmut Lang blazer ($650), Lord & Taylor peplum top ($48, originally $68), BaubleBar studs ($26), Tibi wool pants ($325), Tory Burch Robinson tote ($575), Stuart Weitzman Nouveau pumps ($365-$385)


If You Want to Wear a Dress . . .

Play it safe in a solid color and a hem that falls below the knee. The length is trendy but also avoids the risk of being too short for your prospective boss. Neutral accessories are an easy addition to it all.

Clockwise from top left: VPL sweater tuxedo ($445), Topshop dress ($55), Kendra Scott stud earrings ($38), Nest cuff ($295), Steven Wrenn pumps ($119), Alexander Wang Large Marion bag ($825)

If You Want to Wear a Skirt . . .

We love a midi for life, but it looks especially proper for the office environment. A simple top feels special with a unique detail (in this case, strong shoulders).

Clockwise from top left: See by Chloé top ($320), Michael Kors stud earrings ($75), Dorothy Perkins midi skirt ($29), Kurt Geiger London pumps ($302), Marc by Marc Jacobs Diana briefcase ($646)
