What to wear to a job interview
Hello everyone! It's been a long while since I've been on this sight. I just got back from basic training, and have been applying for jobs. Tomorrow I have a job interview to work at the department store Herberger's. I'd like to look sophisticated and professional, with a little touch of my own style. I'm 17, but don't want to go in their looking like everyother teenager, but I also don't want to look like a 30 year old boring business woman. Any help on what to wear would be great. I don't have much time to figure this out! Thanks a bunch.

Hey! Just joined and I'm in something of a bind. I'm 16 and I have an interview to goto pretty soon. The thing is the pants really shows off my small waist and I feel/look like a tool. Would it be okay if I got something a little bigger that sits a litle lower or do I have to suck it up and look ridiculous?

A tool? I'll tell you what, I'm feeling ignorant...

5. tool

someone who is a complete idiot /one who is used by other people, and usually dosen't even realize it/ someone who can't think for themselves/ an asshat.

The first definition works best.

Thanks for the definition. Pants that emphasise your waist sound perfectly fine to me. If it's the higher waist issue you're concerned about, high waists are apparently back in. I remember reading a bit ago that hip huggers are now passe (bad me) anyhow. Although... couldn't you just stick to a skirt instead if you're worried?

Hmm, a skirt might look awkward. Did I forget to mention that I'm a guy? Hehehe.

sounds fine formally informal...as a matter of fact, the high waist thing fits well into the current trend of dapper dressing popularized by stylish, well-tailored people like Andre 3000, no worries!

Well yes, you did. That might make a slight difference... I do think that the pants sound just fine though.

Can you wear a suit over the pants so that the waistline doesn't show? Anyways, you'll be sitting down most of the time and the employer will be looking at you from the waist up, so you should be fine. But if you're still uncomfortable with the pants, then wearing something more low-waisted will give the illusion of having a thicker waistline.

Good luck with the interview.

Fashion Emergency!
I'm not sure if this is the right place or not, but I need help fast! Tomorrow I am going to interview and tour at the University of Cincinnati's Fashion Program. I have no idea what to wear! Any ideas or suggestions would be more than welcome. Thank you so much, I'm nervous enough as it is...
