When you are preparing for a job interview it is important to give careful thought to what you are wearing so you make the best possible first impression. Although they say you can’t judge a book by its cover when it comes to job interviews this simply is not the case. Here are a few tips to make sure you are putting your best foot forward at your next job interview.

Suit a Must

Many men think they can get away with a shirt and tie when going to a job interview, especially in the summer. However you must always wear a suit. It is important not to be too fashion forward unless you are going for a job in fashion, entertainment or the creative industry. Go for a neutral color such as gray which is also very fashionable right now. Ensure you have a good fit with the arm length as well as a comfortable fit with the suit buttons closed. Double breasted suits are in for 2014 and showing up with your suit buttoned will give a neat and trim appearance. Never wear a suit that looks like it is too big or too small as it will appear messy.

Fitted Dress Shirts

Fitted dress shirts are available in many styles but when it comes to a job interview going for a solid color is best. Crisp white is always in style and goes with any suit style or color. However if you do not have your shirts cleaned professionally a white shirt can really ruin your overall look. For a job interview it is not a bad idea to have a brand new shirt as it will give a sharper impression.


A tie is another must although some more casual jobs might find a tie a little overkill. You will know your own industry best and can make the call when it comes to the tie. When choosing your tie go for something conservative to be safe. Look at colors that will work nicely with your suit.


Black shoes are always a safe bet. There are many styles to choose from including loafer style slip ons or cap toed lace ups. Just avoid any kind of sneaker and you are certain to make a lasting impression.
