A Polished, Preppy Look To Help Land Your Next Job

When hunting for your next gig, most of your efforts go into scouring job postings, networking, and determining if "Internet research" qualifies as a technical skill on your resume. But, when interview day arrives, what's on the outside counts, too. Luckily, we've pulled together an A+ outfit that takes just minutes to master, leaving you with more time to practice interview answers. Go get 'em, tiger!

The always-posh Elena of Classy and Fabulous nails the work-ready ensemble with her combo of a crisp blouse, navy blazer, and sleek white denim. (Depending on the setting of the interview, we'd swap in slim white trousers for an ultra-professional variation, or add a bright clutch for a fun pop of color.) We love the twist of a tunic top, which keeps the look from being too stuffy, and the ladylike black stilettos against the more masculine separates.
