Hi Lauren and Sam!
I have an important job interview next Wednesday and need to dress to visually highlight these qualities:
Some of these are ideas that suggest a type of character or outstanding characteristics of a candidate who will stand out. Please help me to find outfits that are interesting, edgy, smart, business professional but not boring, nerdy, dowdy, or rigid.
Thanks so much!
This was a tough one! After mulling over several options, I decided to create an outfit with a very professional silhouette, adding creativity by way of bold colors, patterns, and details. This look, with its pencil skirt, blouse, and blazer, is essentially a suit. And while the word suit probably strikes fear into the hearts of creative types, by selecting individual pieces with fun, interesting details, a suit can be a lot more stylish than your standard-issue pinstriped version.
Since your interview is coming up very soon, I'm assuming you won't have time to go out and buy (or order) these specific pieces, which is why I had a formula in mind while shopping for this look. Patterned pencil skirt + colorful blouse + sleek blazer + bold (but not over-the-top) accessories = creative professional. Knock 'em dead!
