I have gone on 8 interviews in the Big Apple since I arrived in May. In 5/8 of those interviews I wore the same skirt and in 5/8 of those interviews I was offered the position. Although I have now grown tired of this go-to interview skirt, I know it gives off the appropriate vibe for this industry and I now consider it my lucky skirt. I feel confident when wearing it and feel as it reflects my true style. That is how you want to feel when you go into an interview. You want to stand out, fit the aesthetic of the position, company or industry you are trying to break into, and most importantly feel like yourself so you can shine!
An accountant and a fashion buyer are two different positions, hence they should not dress the same for an interview. Here are some of Few Moda's best interview picks for Corporate vs. Creative positions. I hope you find your lucky piece!
THE CORPORATE'S INTERVIEW:
•Pretty, Conservative Blouse
(Special Collar Design Plain Blouse, www.fewmoda.com)
Instead of a basic button down, pick a pretty blouse with a little statement (such as this special collar) to let your style shine through.
(We Love Stripes Blazer Coat, www.fewmoda.com)
Go for a fitted blazer which is chic and feminine unlike a boring, boxy one.
(100% Wool Two Pleats Skirt, www.fewmoda.com)
A simple, classic skirt is perfect for an interview and matches with just about anything.
THE CREATIVE'S INTERVIEW:
•Matching Top/Bottom Set
(Summer Gingham Print Suit, www.fewmoda.com)
Matching sets are in and always look very put together.
•Dress Shirt With A Twist
(Chevron and Gingham Splicing Shirt, www.fewmoda.com)
Don't go for the ordinary. This button down with unique detailing is still conservative and appropriate for an interview but shows a glimpse of your creativity.
