The Best Outfits for Job Interviews

Internship / College Job Interview Attire

Less formal attire is acceptable when interviewing for campus jobs and more informal workplace jobs.  However, you still want to dress professionally for most positions, even if they are entry-level. Skip jeans, athleisure, or anything you’d wear to the beach, the gym, or a club.

Professional / Business Interview Attire

Generally, a job interview calls for you to wear professional, or business, attire.  This might mean: – A suit jacket and slacks with a button-down shirt and tie – A sweater and a button-down shirt – A blouse and dress pants – A statement dress

Non-Professional / Business Casual Interview Attire

If you have a job interview in a more informal work environment, you might wear a business casual outfit.  Business casual outfits are less formal than a suit, but they are also more professional and polished than, say, a T-shirt and shorts or a sundress and sandals.

Non-Professional / Business Casual Interview Attire

Always dress a bit more professionally than the average employee at the company.

Casual Interview Attire

If you have an interview at a startup, nix the head-to-toe formal business attire. You want to look appropriate and professional, but not too formal. Rather than showing up in a black suit and dress shoes, opt for something relaxed but still presentable: relaxed-fit khakis, dark-wash jeans, and a nice top, for example.
