Job interviews can be stressful. Period. Why waste time stressing about your attire when you can work towards bettering your interview. Job interviews are when you want to be taken seriously, appear bold and confident. A well-dressed person not only makes a good first impression but surely gives a lasting impression. When it comes to guys there's just one perfect garment that gives a confident and powerful look, A Suit.
Basic colours and patterns are always the safest option
When choosing a colour, try going with rich colours like navy blue or deep grey which comes under formal. In case you have multiple round of interviews, for the first round, go with the navy suit keeping it formal but not as cliché as black. If there is a second more important round with the CEO for instance, go all out in formal fashion- the timeless deep grey never fails to make an impression.
When it comes to colour of the shirt, go with a plain white or the light blue collared shirt. Recent surveys suggest that, employers mostly prefer a person in a simple collared white shirt under a suit or otherwise.
Things to Avoid
Avoid the double-breasted suit if you’re an amateur at suits. If in doubt, stay single breasted and in trend. Two button suits with no pinstripes are the professional standards. Venture into three buttons and single button suits when the closet requires variety.
The material and the fit:
The material of the suit must be chosen according to season. Summers show a definite green light for linen and cotton blend suits despite their tendency to crease easy.
