No matter what job you’ve applied to, a well-tailored suit is standard for any interview. I’m sure you’ve heard the interview-wear rules for as long as you can remember: black or blue suit, black or blue dress pants, white shirt. Where is the originality in that? I’ve come up with a way for you look sharp and put-together while also showing a bit of your creative side as well. And don’t worry if you don’t have one, I’m here to take care of that for you.
Where to play it safe
Slacks: Unless you’re applying to a job in the fashion arena, I wouldn’t go to crazy with your choice of pants. Keep it simple here so you can embellish more on top where most of the attention should be.
Shoes: Leather always. Black or brown. Don’t try anything otherwise.
Where to have some fun
Blazer: Details, details, details. There are ways to be bold without being brash. Focus on the little things like intricate buttons or patterned lining. For color, stick to darker tones. Colors like maroon, forest green, and navy blue give a pop of flare without causing a distraction.
Cuff-links: Any respectful man knows the importance of a good pair of cuff links. This is also where you can be the most creative. The quality ones can get expensive, so I would suggest splurging on two solid pairs to complete your wardrobe [one pair silver, one pair gold]. This way you can easily match them to any suit you choose to wear. Choose ones also that appeal to your personal sense of style. Whether they’re engraved, brightly colored, or shaped like bear claws, you can do whatever you like!
