What to Wear to an Interview – Four Essential Style Tips for Women


There are a lot of necessary steps when preparing for a job interview: researching the company, looking up the profiles of the people you will be meeting with, and picking the appropriate outfit. But if you’re a woman, you’re probably also stressing about your attire. Instead of spending hours stressing about what to wear to an interview, use these helpful tips to select your perfect interview outfit:

  1. Dress Code: If you aren’t sure what to wear to the interview ask the HR manager or recruiter what the dress code is like at the office and dress accordingly. If the job is as at a skateboarding company, a suit probably won’t go over well. If you know the office wears business attire, you can be sure to avoid mistakes like open toed shoes. When in doubt, err on the side of conservative.
  2. Minimal: Job interviews are not the place to show off your impressive collection of neon bracelets, instead aim for minimalist fashion statements that won’t distract the interviewer. Of course if you are being interview to be a fashion designer, this may not apply, but you get the picture.
  3. Comfortable for Sitting: Remember that the majority of the interview will probably be done with you in a chair, so consider the length of your skirt, how your pants feel after sitting in them for an hour, and how your top or jacket looks when bent at the waist. The last thing you want to do is focus on how uncomfortable you are instead of the interview questions.
  4. Prepared: It is always important to be prepared! Have an extra copy of your resume in a folder, and if you have an iPad keep your portfolio queued up to illustrate the type of work that you can do.

Here are a few outfit ideas to inspire your next interview outfit:

Modern Suit:

They will be the perfect accessories to this more formal look. {Shop the rest of the look on Polyvore}

Business Casual:

Instead opt for a pair of dress pants and a nice top that isn’t a button down. Don’t go all out on the jewelry, stick with simple yet fashionable pieces like these gold and black teardrop earrings and hammered gold pendant. {Shop the rest of the look on Polyvore}

Outfit Ideas: What to Wear on a First Date


First dates can be nerve wracking, but picking the right outfit can go a long way in quelling first date jitters. Of course picking the outfit has its own challenges, especially if you aren’t sure where you going, or what you will be doing. Here are a few rules for selecting just the right look:

  1. Dress up: Skip the jeans on a first date, there will be plenty of chances to dress down in the future, so bring your fashion A game. Wear something that makes you feel special and attractive, but don’t go overboard, you don’t want to come off as high maintenance. 
  2. Be comfortable: While a first date might feel like the right occasion to buy a new dress, avoid the urge! The last thing you need is an outfit that is untested, otherwise you might discover your dress sleeves keep falling or your new top pinches you. 
  3. Wear the right shoes: Part of the fun of a first date is not knowing what might happen! You could end up at a venue with no seating or change venues at some point, and you should select footwear that allows for that kind of flexibility. Now that doesn’t mean you have to abandon heels, but maybe scrap the really high stilletos that will make you teeter and totter or have aching feet. Instead opt for wedges or a ballet flats to stay comfortable and cute all night.
  4. Arrive prepared: Make sure to plan ahead for your date, get a pack of gum, a small container of perfume, a pack of tissues, anything to avoid that “whoops” moment when you realize you left unprepared.

Here are a few first date looks that are fun, fresh, and flirty:

Cocktails:

Happy Hour is always a winning date option, low lights, drink specials, and lovely little booths to site in and stare at your date over your favorite cocktail. Don’t be afraid to wear a nice dress and throw in a green purse, some gorgeous black wedges, and just the right shade of lipstick.

Cute Outfit Ideas on What to Wear with Sweatpants


It used to be that the only people caught outdoors in sweats were college students, but that is no longer the case, after all, who says that you have to sacrifice comfort to be fashionable? Sure, you probably won’t see anyone wearing them to a cocktail party, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look chic wearing sweats while running errands, getting brunch, or even hitting up a happy hour. However, there are some simple rules to follow in order to pull this look off:

  • Get updated: Ditch the baggy, stretched out, holey sweaters from 1995. Instead, invest in some more fitted, colorful, and modern sweats. You don’t want to look like Rocky Balboa after he leaves the gym.
  • Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize: Grab a hat, scarf, sun glasses, earrings, bracelets, etc., adding little details will show that you are wearing an outfit rather than last night’s pajamas.
