OOTD | Interview outfit inspiration

Everyone knows what I mean when I say work wardrobe.

For some people it's a uniform. For others it's clothes you can't quite bring yourself to get rid of so they've been repurposed. Sometimes it's just a collection of items that aren't particularly special but oh-so-functional.

The ultimate interview outfit though... Not everyone has that hanging in their wardrobe. Right?
 
A week or so ago FarFetch.com got in touch with me with some awesome interview outfit inspiration images.

In the middle of my minimal wardrobe clear out I thought that this email couldn't have come at a better time. Knowing that I could have one perfect interview outfit in my new and improved streamlined clothing collection, that can be adapted as trends shift, would be a pretty savvy thing to do.

This interview outfit is for those seeking work in the creative industry. Slightly less formal than your typical interview get-up, but with a few items that stand out and make sure you won't be forgotten.

I mean... That bag? I need it in my life...
After a digging around in my own wardrobe I found my perfect interview outfit. Turns out it had been hidden in there all along.
 
Dress - ASOS
Shirt* - French Connection (You might recognise it from this post...)
Necklace - Pull and Bear
Shoes - Topshop

So this is my version. Something that's smart but with a few key pieces that will, hopefully, get me noticed for the right reasons.

Not only that but it's mega comfortable (very important in an interview) and can be updated with a different top or more low key shoes.
Not that I'm planning on leaving my job any time soon. I really do love what I'm doing now. It's just nice to know there's something useful in that endless wardrobe of mine.

Have you found your perfect interview outfit yet?

  4. I think it's tremendously hard to pick out the right outfit for a job interview. After all, the first impression is what counts and the wrong blouse can ruin everything. Or so I tell myself. I love your choice of garments, very classy!

  5. When i had to go in for my job interview I was so nervous, i didn't know what to wear I ended up taking the safe (aka boring) route and wearing black slacks and a pretty blouse but that was it. i got the job so i mean, it was okay haha but this outfit of yours is so lovely, I wish I had worn something like this! :)

  9. I love this look. I always struggle with interview outfits because I need something that is practical and formal at the same time. X

  10. I love this outfit! It's always tempting to dress too 'corporate' for an interview, but this is a great way to look smart and professional whilst still adding personality!
