I’m starting a new series called What to Wear to Work Now. Partly because I myself am curious. What passes as work appropriate? What does casual Friday even mean anymore if denim is acceptable 5 days a week? And how far can you push the boundaries into personal style without looking unprofessional?
First up… The Interview…
Stick to the sensible colors, black, navy, and grey. Throw in a tan if you must. I won’t be doing that.
Focus on personal details like your favorite jewelry, or an interesting top but be prepared to answer questions about them.
If you’re confident you won’t be eating mustard anytime soon, go for something white. Make sure it doesn’t wrinkle.
It’s okay to look slightly disheveled as long as it also looks intentional. That is all about confidence.And if you must wear outerwear, take it off before you arrive and hold it in your hand like a bag.
