Wearing the perfect outfit can make you feel unstoppable. That confidence is the best accessory and a great way to make an excellent first impression. Because let's be real, an inappropriate outfit is sure to hurt your chances of getting hired.
To help you get started, we put together three boss interview outfits, inspired by a few ladies we love. Oh and did we mention, you can find each of these looks for $50 or less.
This outfit is a classic look inspired by former first lady Michelle Obama. This understated style is all about keeping it simple and getting down to business. Start by pairing a simple dress with your favorite jewelry and a fun bag--perfect for carrying extra copies of your resume. And don't forget to wear shoes that are stylish and comfortable so you can focus on the interview and not your aching feet.
If your style is more trendy than classic, add a fun pop of color to your interview look as the perfect way to show off your style for a retail gig. Grab a tote bag to carry extra forms, a bottle of water and any last-minute makeup basics you may need before wowing the interviewer. And fInish off your look with a slight heel that'll make you feel taller and more confident.
This outfit is a perfect look for an hourly job interview. It's a fun professional style that doesn’t come off as too stuffy. A blazer paired with a pencil skirt is a versatile style that and can be worn with flats or heels. Add in your favorite watch as a subtle way to show that you care about time and punctuality (just make sure you're on time to the interview).
