The most important thing that can distinguish a successful job interview from a less successful one is how you dress. People pick up on visual cues when they are trying to decide on what a person is like. Interviewers will assume a lot of information about you by what you wear to a job interview. You want to pick clothes that not only make a good impression, but that are appropriate for the job you are being interviewed for. Here are some pointers on accessories you should wear to job interviews.
You probably already knew about this one. Neckties are the most versatile of fashion accessories. You can wear neckties to any job interview you are going to and it will be a pretty safe choice. If you are doing an interview in the fields of business, then you may want to consider wearing a silk necktie.
While neckties are the most popular choice accessory to wear to a job interview, there are other neckwear articles you may want to wear instead.
If you are going to a job interview that has a more business casual dress code, or maybe for something in the fashion industry, you may want to consider wearing a fashionable scarf in place of a necktie. Wearing a scarf is an easy way of making your outfit look better, whether you dress casually or wear a suit.
3. Bow Ties
Bow ties can be appropriate accessories to wear for specific interviews, but few. Reserve bow ties for job interviews with quirky businesses or a position related to the arts.
4. Pocket Squares
Pocket squares are another fashion accessory that you should only wear for certain job interviews. In this case, if you are going to an interview that is formal or where the dress code is business formal or professional, you may want to consider adding a pocket square to your suit jacket.
5. Face Masks
During the COVID-19 pandemic, you may want to wear a face mask as an accessory that is unique and fashionable to a job interview.
Other Clothing You Should Wear to a Job Interview
There's a few more things you will want to wear with your outfit before going to you job interview. First, you want to wear slacks that are darker than your dress shirt. You may also want to wear and outer layer over your dress shirt, though in some cases it may not be necessary. For an outer layer, wear a suit jacket or, if the dress code is particularly casual, you can wear a sweater with the collar of your dress shirt over the collar of your sweater.
