The Foundation—A neutral colored button-up or collared blouse is imperative for mixing and matching with other separates. Consider this your base to build upon!
Get Blazin'—Blazers lend a “I mean serious business” edge to any outfit. Regardless of how professional or casual the work environment is, you can't go wrong with a tailored, slim-fit jacket.
Length Game—Make sure your skirt reaches the knee at least, or just opt for chic trousers. Fit and fabric are key—don't skimp on these!
Accessorize Smartly—Play it safe in closed-toe heels, subtle accessories, and natural makeup. The interview is the time to let your personality shine through, not have your outfit and accessories steal the show.
