Wool suits. Linen wrinkles too badly.
Solids or pinstripe suits are acceptable.
Some plaid suit skirt combinations are acceptable.
Colors most suitable are charcoal, medium gray, steel gray, black and navy blue.
Cleanest and most professional is the simple solid navy or gray suit with a white blouse.
One-piece business dress with a matching jacket is very appropriate for an interview.
Attention to details like smooth seams, even hemlines, correctly hanging linings, and well-sewn buttons are essential.
Hemlines should be at or no more than 2 inches above the knee.
Long sleeves will project the authoritative, professional look you desire.
Never wear a sleeveless blouse to an interview.
Solid colors and natural fabrics (particularly cotton and silk) are the best selections for blouses.
White, cream, pale pink, soft yellow, or light blue can be worn but only if it fully blends into your overall look.
Women’s Neckwear: Scarves
A pure silk scarf will offer a conservative look, a good finish, and ease in tying.
Complement the outfit with the basics: solids, foulards, small polka dots, or paisleys.
Leather shoes that complement the outfit in brown, black, navy, burgundy, forest green or red.
Color of your shoes should always be the same or a darker tone than your skirt.
Heel height should not exceed 2 ½ inches.
The pump with closed toe and heel is the safest and most conservative look.
Stockings and Pantyhose
Neutral skin tones are the safest, most conservative choice.
