Round Three Interview attire

Who would have thought I would need so many professional attire outfits before I even landed a job? For a third round interview, I knew I wanted something that spoke to my more creative side, while still coming off as completely professional. My dad, who works in human resources, would probably be mortified to know I wore a red skirt to an interview! He’s of the old-school mentality that interview outfits should be the classic black suit, safe black pumps and button-up silk blouse.

I think, depending upon the job, that might be the right outfit to wear. But since my interviewer knew I have a fashion blog I figured the black suit wasn’t mandatory. The red pencil skirt is still professional. The blazer keeps the classic structure of a suit while being on trend with the stripes. The scarf was due to the weather being chilly but I ended up just leaving it on even after the commute.

Tip: When interviewing, find out about the company and make sure to dress professionally while remaining you.

    I’ve been saying for some time now that depending on the job, the classic black skirt suit might be too boring, and that wearing a non-suit and still dressing professionally may be the way to go. So I agree with you 100%! If the job, or your field, calls for it, being more creative with your style, and showing your personality in how you dress, is definitely ok! And I think you nailed it here. You look professional and put together, but still like a creative, fun person to have in the office.

    Fantastic outfit! Certainly in my industry this would be a great interview option for sure. I think more creative positions allow you to have a bit more flair so they can see your personality or style. Love it!
