Spin your sleeveless summer tank into an office-appropriate interview look by layering it under a tailored blazer. Forgo the expected pencil skirt for a piece with a little more personality, like this striped below-the-knee number. And keep it streamlined with subtle silver studs, closed-toe shoes, and a leather tote.

Your sleeveless summer dresses might not have been viable options for interviews in the warmer months, but now that things are cooling down, do not put those sleeveless numbers in storage. Instead, try layering with your favorite button-up, or turtleneck, and suddenly you have a creative and appropriate new 'fit for your interview, without spending a dime.

Suiting is en mode this fall, so we say milk it for all its worth. When it comes time to plan a killer interview outfit, pop a longline blazer over your go-to button-up and trousers combo. Special shout out to everyone working in more corporate spheres. This trend will literally suit your interview, and your new gig, quite well.
