Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What To Wear To An Interview

It’s back to business for today’s Style Inspiration. Dia_Zon writes, “I have been going to a few interviews and I’ve been wearing the basic black suit and white shirt and I HATE IT!! I saw this photo of Jhene Aiko on Instagram wearing all navy and didn’t know if wearing a solid navy suit with a navy shirt would be appropriate for an interview? Or if you could give some ideas…? But I have to wear a suit but if I have to go all out with formal attire, I want to look good.”

Whether you’re rocking a head to toe monochrome ensemble or mix up a neutral palette, the goal is to always keep you look professional and chic. Adding in subtle prints and posh accessories will revamp your interview wardrobe.

To compliment navy accents, forego a black suit and slip into a tailored jacket and matching pencil skirt in a grey hue.

Ditch the traditional white button down for a neck tie blouse or a striped blouse. Uplift this office-ready look with a pair of black buckle court shoes and a structured handbag to match.

Liven up your go-to black suit with a black and white striped shirt, Gianvito Rossi mesh paneled suede pumps, and an embellished satchel.

Add in a few accessories including a pair of vintage cluster pearl earrings and black and gold rimmed eyeglasses for a fashionable twist.

And if you want to perk up a navy jacket and trouser combo work in a few brighter pieces. A punchy pair of eyeglasses and a perky cap toe pump gives a little life to a navy on navy look.
