Graduates: What to wear to an Interview

‘Dress to make an impression’, the phrase makes sense for every dressing but holds a lot more significance when it comes to graduates going in for an interview. It is important for a graduate to dress smart, as you want the people on the other side of the table to take you seriously and not consider you a kid just out of college.

While being fashionable and trendy is one thing, it is important to not let fashion take over the better part of you as the objective for an interview is the interviewer should remember you and not your attire. Smart and crisp fashion are the keywords to remember when it comes to interviewing fashion for graduates or anyone for that matter. While what you present as your achievements is one part of the interview, one needs to ensure that how you look and dress works in your favor by presenting you in the best possible light.

There are some checks that a graduate should bear in mind so as to not wrong with the interview dressing.

1.How to dress:

You have seen people wearing serious business suits when they go for business meetings, this should be your foundation when you start thinking of your interview attire. An interview is not the place or time to experiment with clothes, accessories or perfumes. Avoid stark and bold patterns, funky jewelry, contrasting colors and an overdose of your favorite perfume. Look neat and tidy. While every industry dressing demands are different interview basics remain the same. Being creative is okay but being formal is a must.

2.What to wear:

For the boys, it’s okay if you don’t want to wear a formal suit but a smart formal shirt with well-fitted trousers is a must. Jeans is a no whether it is for the boys or the girls. Accessorize with a smart belt and matching shoes and ensure you wear your formal socks and leave the funky ones in your wardrobe.

For the girls, formal skirts, button shirts, formal trousers are all great to go with for interviews. Be careful on the colors and be subtle. Another important point to remember is to completely avoid tight, ill fitted or too short dresses when going for an interview. Ensure your clothes are well ironed. Accessorize with comfortable formal shoes and keep the jewelry simple and minimal. Avoid wearing accessories that make a lot of sound as that can be very irritating and distracting at an interview.

3.Hair and Makeup:

For the men it is best to avoid goatees, stubble, long hair and beards. It is best to go with a clean look well shaved, short hair neatly gelled and combed. For the ladies, again hair should be neatly combed avoiding open hair. Women tend to fiddle with their hair and hence pulling them back into a ponytail is the best hairdo for an interview. Go easy with the makeup. You are just a graduate and young, stick to minimal makeup that makes your natural shine. The dark smoky eyes are not for an interview. Energetic eyes with a simple dash of kohl and eyeliner and well-defined lips with neutral or formal lip colors are the only makeup that you would need for an interview. However nervous you may be, get a good sleep previous night as you don’t want to carry puff eye bags with you at the interview.

What you wear at the interview will be interviewer’s first impression of you and your personality and hence take time and effort to get it right. Most importantly, wear your confidence and a bright smile which will be your biggest winner at the interview.

Shaving tips;men skin care

  • Shaving is one of the essential activities for men’s skin. Be careful during shaving. Never make haste and shave in the direction of the hair growth.

  • Never go for cheap razors.
  • Aftershave products are good but I would suggest you to choose any oil free moisturizer after shaving.

Basic skin care;

  • Exfoliating – exfoliating is essential to remove all the dirt which is stuck into the skin pores. Some men avoid it because they do not find it necessary but it is important to keep skin clean and dirt free.
  • CTM (cleansing, toning, moisturizing) for men – CTM skin care is one of the important basic skin cares which help to keep the skin not only clean but healthy and much well also.
  • Sun protection – UV rays coming from sun are very harmful for skin and cause skin tanning which is very common in summer season. For men, a sunscreen suitable with the skin type is great but having SPF 30 is a better choice.

If it is a bachelor party, then a tweed suit is there for you to wear with an elegant dress shirt. In fact tweed suits are worn in weddings and pre wedding functions. The choga and achkan would be more stylish if the embroidery work is done on these apparels with traditional touch.

Usually men do not accessorize there outfit as much but for wedding and other pre – wedding functions, designer turban accessories are very popular among men. You can choose a designer patch like accessory for your turban to look like a king.

Now a day, sherwani shoes with curved tips are very much in trend. So you should definitely have a trial of these shoes to get a royal look in a traditional way.

CUFFLINKS FOR MEN

CUFFLINKS FOR MENThe options of accessories for men and boys are very rare and in this short list a new thing is added which is known as “cufflink”. As the name depicts, cuff links are like studs and are used to link the cuffs of shirt. The cufflinks are used from a long time in foreign countries and now a day becoming popular in India also. Basically cuffs were linked by the buttons which is a very old style. It is becoming very popular and men use cufflinks even in professional attires.

The trend of cufflinks is in vogue and is used mostly with dress shirts. You may see many famous business personalities and even celebs use cufflinks with their shirts. Usually a button on the cuffs is visible and when it is replaced by stylish stud like cufflinks it can add more appeal to a man’s look.

SUITS AND SHIRTS FOR MEN

SUITS AND SHIRTS FOR MENSuits and shorts for men are one of the latest fashion trends for men. A set of shorts with suit is called a short suit. The fashion of short suit is a very unique and innovative invention and is admired by fashion lovers. For some men, it may be little tricky to carry the shorts with suit but let me inform you that it is in vogue and definitely it is going to be an essential part of summer fashion attire.

A short suit is a great choice for summers and a much cooler fashion for summer. In fact most of the men would like it because in summers, men usually used to wear shorts. The most suitable colors for short suits are light gray and navy blue colors, if you are making a start to wear these suits. Color matching is not so good idea in case of short suits. If you are carrying a short suit and want to appeal through your looks, then a color mismatch is a great option for you. I would suggest the color of shirt different from the suit top for an attractive look.

As I have suggested you above about the color mismatch so you can try different color variations according to your favorite look. The set of shirt and shorts with typical suit top is not compulsory, as you can try the short with vest coat over the shirt and a tie to emphasize your style in a professional way.

Fashion is all about variations and versatility, so experiments in fashion are very natural. Keep trying new things with confidence and raise yourself among the crowd. Good luck guys.
