In for the Kill: How to Dress for a Killer Interview

Getting dressed for an interview sounds simple, but there can be a few complexities that come along with it. You want to impress, feel confident and also look your best.

Here are some simple tips from our Style Expert, Sophie Hart, to make it easier for you to go in for the kill!

Dress for the job you want: If you're going for a job as a personal trainer, it probably won't be appropriate to turn up sporting a suit, and vice versa. If the work environment is corporate and formal, present yourself in a similar fashion. I'm not recommending your stifle your personality, but do dress appropriately - you want to impress by making the interviewer feel that you will reflect the brand and business appropriately. 

Nothing too sexy: This is key. Stay away from sheer fabric, anything too fitted and definitely no short skirts. Keep it classy. 

When pairing heels with your outfit, try something mid-sized. Avoid stilettos and don't even think about turning up in your thongs! If you have to wear a flat, try a nice sandal or ballet flats. 

Accessories should be simple and understated. Make sure you have clean hair and nails - from top to toe and keep your makeup on the natural side. Don't forget to make sure your foundation is blended correctly and it matches your skin tone!
