A job interview is stressful as is, so the last thing you want to have to worry about is what to wear. Everyone wants to make a good first impression, and the best way to do that is to dress appropriately for the interview.

The most important thing to keep in mind is creating a look that is both professional and neat, but you should also wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. Don’t overdress, but don’t underdress either! We will guide you to reach a good balance between the two.

Blazer

The blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit jacket, but cut more casually. You can either wear a blazer formally with trousers, or more casually if you combine it with a pair of dark jeans.

Power Suit

Another one of our favorite looks combines a blazer with matching trousers. This creates a very chic and professional look, and don't feel like you need to limit yourself to the traditional black, blue or grey.

Basic Blouse

Pair a blazer with a blouse in a neutral color for a professional, put together look. A white blouse always works well.

Turtleneck Pullover

A turtleneck is a chic and a classic choice. It is easy to wear under a blazer, and you can get it in many different colors. It's a true wardrobe essential.

Footwear

Depending on the type of interview, you can easily make your outfit more chic or more casual with different kinds of footwear. One way to make your outfit more chic is to add ankle boots to your outfit. There are thousands of ankle boot options; pointed toe or rounded toe, tall shaft or short shaft, suede or leather… They are also comfortable to wear and match almost every outfit! Adding platform shoes to your outfit will give you a more casual look.

Cher Horowitz approved plaid has taken over this fall. From coats to blouses, pants to skirts, every garment has gotten a serious boost in saturation. Let’s take a look and see how some different fashion bloggers are pulling off this colorful plaid trend!

Don't be afraid to be a little bit extra this fall with a head to toe plaid suit! If you want to be a low-key fashionista at work, you can choose a dark toned plaid like Allison McGevna's suit. But we must say, Kary Cuii really knows what is the hottest plaid pattern this fall and she is pulling it off!

The more colorful the better! Mirella Belle picked blue plaid wide leg trousers for a comfortable and stylish look, when Taylor (live.love.chardonnay) went for a bolder look with yellow plaid trousers.

If your self-described style falls somewhere between sophisticated and casual, try a plaid blazer and mix it with jean trousers or a skirt; it’s suitable for both officewear and street style.

A plaid skirt is perfect for a schoolgirl chic look. Sylvia styled her mixed plaid skirt with a simple striped blouse for her New York Fashion Week look and went for a Gossip Girl vibe. Both these pieces are just perfect for a fall wardrobe! And Gemma’s look is young and cute, especially when styled with a pair of classic Vans.

If you are still holding to your polka dot dress, then it’s time to let it go. Summer is over and the plaid dress is slowly replacing them as a wardrobe must-have!

Here are some similar styles we’ve found right here on Baopals. Make sure you have at least one of them in your wardrobe for this fall!
