Dress For The Job
We’ve heard you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have, and that’s never more true than when you’re choosing an outfit for an interview for that coveted job. We were inspired by the slick, chic look from 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Fall runway for a job interview look that is both polished and professional, and still has personality.
Tips For Interview Dressing
Whether your interview is for a job that will require you to dress professionally, wear a uniform, or even don your pj’s (home offices are becoming more and more common), it’s important to dress up for the interview process. This look works for most job interview scenarios, but keep in mind that a more creative environment like a fashion or marketing job would allow you to pack a bit more punch with brighter hues or prints. For all other jobs, this is the ideal way to dress, wearing tailored pieces that don’t show skin, but evoke confidence and aptitude with chic high pumps and spot-on accessories.
Get The Phillip Lim Look
Show the world (and the boss) that you’re ahead of the game of fashion by wearing fall’s biggest shade, bordeaux, in these wine coloured Y’s trousers paired with a nude high-necked blouse, like our DKNY one, with a feminine silky texture. Top your subdued-colour blocked look with an easy black jersey blazer like this T By Alexander Wang one. Finish the serious look with touches of fun in glam patent pumps like these Pour La Victoire showstoppers, and this affordable Asos bow belt.
