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.
