While some roles require different fashion requirements, there are a few basics that will always be winners no matter what. Some classic and key items, such as a black blazer or classic pants, can help any woman feel strong and empowered and keep the focus on your skills, talent, and personality. Block-coloured jumpers and a pair of classic black boots will always get you through too. Remember to stay away from anything silk or sheer, and definitely no baring midriffs and ripped clothing.
It's also a good idea to add pops of colour with accessories or depending on the job, go for a colourful dress or skirt that is bound to steal attention. If you’re being interviewed for a creative job, make sure you show off your personality through playful and personal touches, think jewellery.
A cardinal rule, too. Dress as you normally would. Don't wear something you bought the day before out of nerves (or excitement) but rather something you feel comfortable and confident in. Job interview dressing isn’t exactly easy, but it is a good way of setting your goals and intentions via your wardrobe — and there’s nothing we like better than letting your clothes give you the power you need to win at life.
