Be Dapper, a men’s fashion blog focused on timeless clothing and style, shares priceless advice on interview attire. The fundamentals of a great interview look are these: proper color, simple accessories, and thorough preparation. Check out our excerpt below.
Leave the Black Suit at Home
First off, always wear a suit. Always. Even if the workplace is casual or the job is not in an office environment, no interviewer is going to look down on the fact that you dressed well. However, showing up in slacks and a button up with no tie might send the wrong impression or not be appropriate for that position. Moving on: black suits are great, they are bold without even expressly being so and work with a variety of colors and patterns. However, your black suit is not your interview suit, not even your business suit. Save your black suit for evenings out or dinner parties. For an interview, you should be wearing a navy or charcoal suit. I recommend navy, as it displays a refined level of style sense and professionalism. Keep it single breasted, with a notch lapel and preferably two buttons. Patterns, if any, should be subtle.
