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.

CREATE A CHIC LOOK WITH SKATER SKIRTS

Hello friends! Today we are going to talk about cute skater skirts. For a stylish and chic look, skater skirts are there for you in trend. Usually skater skirts are found to be thigh length high waist skirts with a free hemline. It is a kind of A – line skirt which is getting very popular now a days. Let’s have a discussion that how to look fabulous with skater skirts in different ways.skater skirts

Pairing with skater skirts;

Pairing with a skater skirt is so easy. You can pick a simple t – shirt to wear with your skater skirt. In fact ordinary tops will work with a skater skirt but make sure if your top is not lengthy. Tank tops and ganji tops are perfect to pair with it.

The best way to wear the skater skirt is that you should pair a high waist skater skirt with a crop top. Well you will get a look like a mid riff outfit in this pairing.

Colors and prints for skater skirts;

You can try various colors and prints for skater skirts. But remember, if you are wearing a printed skater skirt then pair it with a plain top and if you are wearing a plain skirt then pair it with a printed top. Although, printed skirt with printed top or plain skirt with plain top will be nice.

You can try any kind of footwear and accessories with skater skirts. You can wear it in casual wears as well as for outings.

Skater skirts with thigh length are popular but you can give a try to knee length skater skirts also.

FLAUNT IN STYLE WITH MAXI SKIRT

Trendy and cool Maxi skirts! An ultimate approach to style with comfort! Here we are going to discuss about how to flaunt in maxi skirts. Before discussion I would mention that maxi skirts are one of the cool and classy fashion trends which are never outdated. Here are some styling ideas to try with maxi skirts. Have a look below;maxi skirts

Pairing with maxi skirts;

The one thing which I like most about maxi skirts is that we can style it in so many ways. You can pick a cami top, tank top, ganji top or even an ordinary top with your maxi skirt. But the best way to carry maxi skirt is to pair it with a crop top. Pair your crop top with a high waist maxi skirt to get a mid – riff outfit look. In fact mid – riff outfits are in trend now a day.

Prints and textures;

Although various animal prints are in trend but I would suggest you to choose floral print maxi skirt. In fact plain maxi skirt would be more classy and catchier than printed maxi skirt. Pastel colors are going to overcast this season. So go for plain pastel colored maxi skirts.

Accessories with maxi skirts;

It depends on the place and occasion for where you are wearing maxi skirt. Suppose if you are wearing maxi skirt then you do not need to wear accessories with it and you can keep it simple. But if you have chosen it for outing, then you can select any one kind of accessory such as a chunky neckpiece or a statement hand piece.

Carry a cross body small sleek bag with your max skirt look. That would really suit with the personality in maxi skirt. Tote bags or clutch bags with this look would not be that working.

You can select flat footwear, pencil heeled or wedge heeled footwear with it. But I think flat footwear would be more suitable and comfortable with this look

FRENCH DRESSES

Hello ladies! Today we are going to discuss about French dresses. French dresses are originated from French traditional dresses in which a dress which looks like a heavy gown and paired with a stylish French hat which is adapted as head piece now a day. The western fashion has a vast contribution by French dress patterns and attire trends.french dress

Basically a French dress contains a well fitted or sometimes a tight bust with a wide lower area. Usually in French dresses, the lower area or you can say the skirt portion is much wider than bust and is especially designed as a gown. In fact most of the western dresses such as one piece dresses and gowns are inspired from French fashion. The latest prom dresses are also inspired from French fashion apparels.

Lace and sheer is dramatically added to these dresses to make them look classy and appealing. Plain French dresses look more beautiful than printed French dresses. In an event organized in France, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen in a pretty French dress. She was wearing a peach French dress and paired it with a cute hat. She was stealing the show in her cute and descent look.

TEA LENGTH OUTFITS IN VOGUE

Tea length dresses are back again. It is one of the oldest western outfit trends. The trend of tea length dresses and skirts is being hugely popularized by Hollywood and Bollywood celebs. Tea length dresses are popular since the era of 50s and 60s. You can see veteran actresses wearing tea length dresses and skirts in movies of 50s and 60s. Then the trend suddenly disappeared after the decade of 90s. But this time the tea length dresses are again in vogue.

I must say that it is one of the most classic and elegant innovations of fashion and styling. A tea length outfit is a great balance between a thigh length/knee length outfit and floor length outfits. A tea length dress is perfect choice for an ultimate elegant and sophisticated look. Let’s have a brief discussion on styling tea length outfits.tea length outfits

Types and textures;

Tea length dresses are available in various textures such as tea length maxi dress and tea length pencil skirts. Tea length maxi dresses seem better then a floor length maxi gown. But a tea length pencil dress is my all time favorite because a pencil dress of any length is a big hit.

Pairing for style;

The styling of tea length outfits can be done in different ways. If you have picked a tea length skirt then make sure that the skirt is a high waist and pair it with a crop top or a tank top. The combo of crop top with a high waist skirt is usually called as midriff dress.

A one piece tea length dress can be styled with a ribbon belt or a sleek belt having dark color of belt and light color of the dress. That would be a very pretty look.

Prints and colors;

Various kinds of prints are in trend but for a tea length dress, two prints are most suitable; floral prints and graphic prints. For a casual look, floral printed tea length dress would be better than a graphic print tea length dress.

Footwear for tea length outfits;

Footwear with a tea length dress needs to be catchy and classy. Usually wedges and pencil heels are supposed to be great to wear with tea length dresses but the most suitable foot wears are kitten heels.

THE ELEGANT HALTER NECK DRESSES

Hello ladies! Today we are going to talk about halter neck dresses. Halter neck dresses are in vogue but if you think that it is a new trend then you are wrong because the trend of halter neckline is very old and been used in dresses and blouses from a very long time. The halter neckline is used in western dresses and as well as in blouses. Here I am going to talk about the grace of halter neck dresses.halter neck dresses

One thing in halter neckline that I like most is that it hides the cleavage which I would say is a plus point of this neckline as some women are not so sure or confident to show off their cleavage.

But it is not compulsory about halter neckline that it hides cleavage because different dresses are designed with different halter neck patterns so it is easy to look sexy in a halter neck dress.

Where and how;

Beautiful halter neck dresses are perfect choice for a prom night and night –outs. Marvelous designer halter neck gowns should be chosen for evening parties and cocktail parties. In fact lots of celebs are seen wearing halter neck gowns on red carpet.

Colors and prints for halter neck dresses;

Although various print designs and patterns are in trend but I would suggest you to pick plain halter neck dresses instead of printed halter neck dresses. Printed halter neck dresses are better for casual wears. But if you are going to choose a halter neck maxi dress then it should be printed because printed maxi dresses look much pretty than plain maxi dresses.

And now is time to discuss about colors for a halter neck dress. Neon colors and pastel colors both are in trend but I would prefer pastel colors like turquoise, peach, baby blue colors etc.

HIGH WAIST SKIRTS IN TREND

Many women just love to wear the skirts and for those women, now a day a new trend has been started about skirt, which is high waist skirts trend. The high waist skirts are in vogue. High waist skirts trend is one of the oldest fashions so you can say that it is revival of old fashion.

High waist skirts look nice and hide your belly and tummy. Basically high waist skirts are of different types such as high waist maxi skirts and high waist pencil skirts or high waist miniskirts. You can select your favorite texture but you should understand that how to wear a high waist skirt. Here I will give you some tips to carry a high waist skirt in a right way;high waist skirts

  • Crop top with high waist skirt this is very important to notice that no long tops or no tunics should be worn with a high waist skirt. The most suitable type of upper wears with a high waist skirt is crop top. You can show off your midriff with this combo.
  • Tuck in top or shirt with high waist skirt if you do not want to pick a crop top with a high waist skirt or you are not comfortable of wearing crop tops, then ordinary tops and shirts are useful alternatives for you. But tuck in top or tuck in shirt is better and much suitable with such skirt.
  • Similar color of top and skirt – if you want a fashionable and classy look, then choose a top which matches with the color of skirt but remember that it is not compulsory and different colors for top and skirt respectively would be working.
  • Avoid flat foot wears – I will never suggest you to go for flat footwear when you are going to wear high waist skirt. High heels and wedge heels are better options.

 

TANK DRESS – FOR SUMMER WARDROBE

Hello friends. Here I have brought a cool and stylish idea for your summer wardrobe. What do you think about fabulous tank dresses for this summer season? This dress is a great option for you if you love tank tops and want to have a one piece dress instead of jeans or shorts. I would say that this should be one of the must haves in girl’s wardrobe. Here I we are going to talk about the cool tank dress.tank dress

Why tank dresses?

First of all let me tell you that why you should own a tank dress. No doubt, tank tops are stylish, cool, comfortable and easy to wear. You can style the tank tops in your own way. The tank dresses can be considered as a fusion of tank top with one piece dress. I just love this fashionable innovation.

Color and prints for tank dresses;

This summer season, pastel colors are going to overcast. So obviously, I would suggest you to choose pastel colored tank dresses of your favorite shades. Well, I am going to get a light grey tank dress for me in this season. What do you think about a metallic tank dress and a sequin tank dress?

Although plain and colorful tank dresses are good option but you can experiment with printed tank dresses. Graphic printed tank dress is good but make sure that it would be good for you because graphic prints are hitting the trend.

Accessories and footwear;

For accessories and footwear you should see that where are you wearing it. If you are wearing it as a casual wear, then keep it simple and sober. A thick Kadha of color matching with dress is enough. And if you have picked a designer tank dress for a party, then go for chunky jewellary.

Now is the turn for footwear. Flip flops and sneakers are enough for casual wear with your tank dress. But if it is about a party, then I would suggest you to select fashionable heels. Gladiator sandals is a nice idea for footwear with tank dress.
