Do you have any suggestions what a young lady like myself should wear for an interview? The way I was dressed for my only successful design interview, I feel, was rather inappropriate, and I don’t think the messy look with a portfolio under sweaty armpit will work the next time.
I don’t have an interview tomorrow, it’s just a bunch of questions about what not to wear inspired by some previous thread. All of my teachers are men, and when they gave us advices on how to dress for an interview…they kind of concentrated on tie/ no tie aspect of it, which was probably helpful for all of the boys in my class, but not exactly for me.
So, here we go…I tend to wear a lot of color, how much should I tone it down for an interview? I’m asking that because women are generally “allowed” to wear more vibrant stuff than men.
In my opinion, suits look stooopid on young ladies, so should I invest in a suit for an interview? Or something matching will suffice? Pants or skirt? Or it doesn’t matter?
If I must wear something rather conservative, can I go funky with accessories?…like lime stockings, and such?
And the main question, make-up, no make-up…I rarely wear make-up in social situations, but I’ve heard somewhere before that wearing no make-up at all for an interview is mauvais ton in the USA, there should be some tasteful, natural looking, light layer of powdered pigments on the women’s face. But I do feel more comfortable and confident a-la naturel…I really need some help on this one.
Also, would one dress differently for an interview somewhere in EU than in the US?
…I think that’s it for now.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions from women, men, boys, and girls…
