How to Dress: Fashion Interview 💼

Interviews are already daunting, but fashion interviews may seem even more daunting! How does one put together an outfit for themselves for a fashion interview? What’s important to remember is that your appearance will be an impressionable aspect of your interview. With this in mind, you might feel the additional pressure of ditching your normal business professional clothes and finding the perfect fit for your dream job. Now before you go ravage through your closet, let’s walk through some important things to keep in mind when dressing for a fashion interview.


Tip 1: Keep your look fashion-forward and professional. If you can find a way to incorporate the brand you’re interviewing for into your outfit, definitely do so! Make yourself still seem professional by incorporating subtle statements of the brand into your outfit. While you want to express yourself, you also want to appear polished and professional.

Tip 2: You can express yourself with your outfit during your interview-- but it depends on your role. If you’re looking to work in the creative side of fashion (e.g. fashion design, costume design, etc) an outstanding choice in clothes would leave a definite impression on your interviewer. However, if you’re trying to work in a corporate setting (supply chain roles, marketing roles, etc) a professional look would fit best for your interview.


Tip 3: Don’t be afraid to show a little bit of your personality! Although it may not be the best idea to go totally extreme, remember that your outfit should still represent a part of your personality. You can do this through color, accessories, and more!

Tip 4: Don’t forget your confidence. What makes fashion so great is that it isn’t the clothes that make the look, but the people wearing them. You can wear the most lavish pieces, but the most important thing that will stick with your interviewer is how you wear those pieces. Confidence will shine through whichever outfit you wear, so remember to bring that important accessory when you go for your interview!
