^Thanks that exactly what I thought! I just want to give off the style, and want it to fit with their image.

You could peice togther a suit, but make sure it's done with a fashion forward twist so they can see that you have a sense of style. I interviewed for a boutque one time and was coming from my full time job and they were looking me up and down to see if I had the chops to put an outfit together. They even asked who I was wearing; like it was red carpet or something
Good luck!

I have an interview with a leading brands here and wondering what to wear ? thinking about a neat cut black shirt+black woolen short jacket+ black jeans +white converse sneaker, is that fine ?

i know i can do the job well,qualification and experience are all fit, but i really hate the interview, always way too nervous. and take about 20minutes to cool down which i probably already lost the chance.

I'd go more formal-ditch the sneakers and the jeans, unless it's a denim brand.

it's not a denim brand, they r a bit like CK,doing casual stuff in high quality and nice touch.

I never felt comfort. inside suit ... and i don't think it's necessary to dress too formal, after all, i'm not interviewing for super manager or CEO .

Have some good suggestion?

It all depends on the brand and what they wear day to day ... you did not give us any info to go on.

I always say, take a cue from what the managers and staff are wearing, and make it something similar. And take a cue from what they sell ... if it's dressy stuff, you should be dressy ... if it's super casual, then you may dress down a bit. If they sell jeans as a major part of their stock and the other employees wear them, then I think that dressy jeans would be OK. The Converse shoes ... not sure. A dressier shoe might be safer .... unless, they sell really casual, funky/cool stuff and their employees and the managers dress this way. Better to overdress a tad than underdress, IMO.

A suit is not necessary ... unless the employees are required to wear them. I like the idea of a casual, well fitting jacket ... it can dress up a look without being stuffy. Consider nice pants and the jacket you mentioned ... or pop a cute skirt under it with good looking shoes.

You always want to dress for the job you want, just a little bit better ... so keep that in mind.

Thanks alot for your commens BetteT.

yes,today i went to few of their shop and had a look around,and i regret for the idea of sneaker,considering it\s bit way down.

And i find pair of black flats,really simple with sophisticate workmanship,and it goes really good with the outfit though they are all in black.

So wish me good luck,guys,nerviousing....

I have an interview at French Connection next week... what do I wear?
In the e-mail it said something about 'London chic'
I was thinking anything involving...
black pants, with a skinny, tapered ankle
vintage mens blazer?
black double breasted black jacket with large buttons
pointy-toed black four inch heels

Help? I'm just confused, I don't want to wear the stereotypical jacket/blouse/pencil skirt/dress pant combination, and want to show some flair, but I don't want to look underdressed... all while looking 'French Connection'.

What to wear to top fashion magazine internship interview??
Hi!!

I'm going in for interviews next week for 4 of the top fashion magazines. I can't decide whether to take the more understated chic route or the more business route. Any ideas? My current thought it a black pencil skirt, a grey chloe top with beige accents, brown Louboutins, a bold pink stone necklace, and my tan Miu Miu bag. Also- open toed shoes...acceptable for an interview or not? I know they're fine once you work there, but I don't want to look too relaxed.

HELP.

xxoo

@CloFashion: Welcome to tFS! For your interview, I'd say 'understated chic'., definitely let them get a sense of your style. Given the position you're applying for, it seems you don't have to be very conservative with your choice of shoes; however I'd say no to the open toed just to stay on the safe side, and as you said, once you work there it'll be alright
