Hi TKO, I like the striped white shirt. It's a little softer than just a white button-down. Good luck on your interview!

I think the white shirt with a dark tie works better.

^ I agree... that LOOKS best... but sometimes it's hard to read interviewers. You think... should I go with a conventional look... or go a bit against the flow, wear a piece that stands out... It's tough guessing sometimes.

I think tie-wise, as long it's not a silly tie, or an eye sore, you are fine. A solid dark tie is a little concierge looking for me, but it certainly won't hurt you.

But . . . for dental/med school interviews, all you need is a suit that fits. They just want to make sure you're not a nutter.:p

Dressing for an interview?
I'm so sorry for this post...please merge it if it's suitable.
I have an interview with a fashion designer on Saturday, for a possible internship. I've been told by many people to wear an all black suit, or at least not wear jeans (not even dark jeans).
I'm only 16 and I don't exactly know if I should go to this fashion designer (who's a lot like me...girly, lots of lace and satinm etc) in a black suit.
I had an outfit picked out with a nice blazer, flats, subtle gold jewelry, and a nice leather bag but it was with jeans. I can technically wear black pants with it...but is it too much black?
How dressy/formal should I be as a 16 year old?
Thanks!

i just went on interviews for a much more conservative field which required that i wear a dark-colored suit.
i'm pretty sure that if you are applying into fashion that you'd have a lot more room to experiment. you probably don't need to wear all that black. i would definitely accessorize more since you do want to show your fashion know-how. hopefully someone who IS in fashion answers your post.
good luck on your interview!!

In my opinion, head to toe black is very, very corporate and probably more suited to an interview for, say, a job in business or at least something serious .

I think you should wear something that reflects on your own personality and style. Since you say your style is similar to that of the designer's, then wearing something that is 'you' should come as a good sign to them . Maybe you could go for something like a really pretty blouse with smart trousers or a high-waisted skirt (tulip, pencil, etc), heels and simple jewellery or even a simple, pretty dress .

Hope that helps!

You should wear something that reflects your style and personality but make sure that it's conservative.
- A highwaisted pencil skirt with a belt if you wanna add accessories to it.
- A white cotton blouse
- Heels

So if I wore dressy wedges with a nice skirt...would the wedges be too casual =x? I'm looking at this designer's collections and they're based on a garden party with a lot of pastel colors and little flowered hats. Should I dress summery?

Totally agree. If you want to sway away from black, go with navy blue or dark gray - both colors are extremely corporate-friendly, as well.

Pictures from the collections, or my shoes?
The collections can be found here: http://erinmahoney.com/gallery.html
As for my shoes, they're just wedge heels similar to these: http://www.style.com/images/trends/t...10706/img5.jpg
but much less chunky looking.

If your shoes are similar to those they are quite nice if you're sure they won't look too casual and as for the outfit, I would go for something a little more business-like but not too serious looking.

Hi was just wondering...is it fine to wear a robert rodriguez black cotton jacket and skirt to a job interview (for example a flight attendant interview)...the cotton makes the jacket a bit casual so Im not sure and it has a black bow belt at the middle which is removal. Im liking it because the jacket fits great and I can never find one thats my size. thanks

it looks a bit like this but the material is a bit more casual
