What To Wear To An Interview (That Isn’t A White Shirt And Black Trousers)


Picture the scene: you’ve filed your application and bagged an interview. So far, so good. But now you know that you’re a contender, you want to look like one too.

We’ll level with you, injecting personality into an interview outfit is no mean feat. There are multiple factors to consider, from the nature of the job (corporate or creative?) to practical concerns like your journey (do you really want to arrive footsore from those box-fresh heels?).

But don’t sweat it, because with the right components, you can strike a balance between professional polish and your individual style. That might mean mixing smart culottes with a flash of animal print, or a plush polka blouse with matte-look skinnies.

So, fold away those tired trousers, hang up that white shirt, and have a little scroll for some outside-the-box interview outfits.

Hear Me Roar

Contrasting a crisp shirt with animal print creates a work-ready look with an on-trend twist. Try pairing these comfy belted Leopard Print Trousers with a black jumper, blouse or polo, plus court shoes or flats. Fresh, fierce and ready to sign on the dotted line.

Smooth Talker

A chic high-neck blouse in a playful print hits the sweet spot between smart and casual. Tuck the spotted Cream Ambre Blouse into matte-look skinnies or cigarette cut trousers for a subtly stylish outfit that makes all the right impressions.

Trail Blazer

There’s something about the structure of a blazer that instantly makes you feel put-together. Think boardroom hustle but without the shoulder boulders and big 80s hair. Add a black fitted body and skinnies to the classic Blake Gingham Jacket for a leading candidate look.
