Those who are interviewing for a job in business, banking and wealth management, politics, academia, engineering, or health sectors should dress business formal unless otherwise instructed.
If no clothing type is specified, and the company you're interviewing for is outside the sectors listed above, stick with business casual. Method 1 Quiz How can you determine your company's dress code? Ask your human resources representative. Wear what makes you feel most comfortable. Assume it is the same as your last job. Ask your friends and family. Remember that skirts and dresses are acceptable as long as the hem falls just above the knees.
As with men, black and grey are more formal, making for a safer bet. Avoid low-cut dresses or those with high slits. Avoid dresses especially and skirts that are more skin-tight. Opt for pants such as khakis, corduroy pants, linen pants or dress pants. No jeans, unless otherwise noted. If jeans are allowed by your employer, distressed jeans, jeans with holes, and "boyfriend" jeans are not desirable choices.
Neutral colors are best. Choose from a variety of shirts. Women have a few more options in this department than the men. Opt for conservative and not too revealing. Blouses, plain shirts, cotton shirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, vests, and sleeveless shirts are all acceptable. Tucked-in or untucked can both go, depending on the shirt.
Unusual patterns are acceptable, as long as they are not wild. The standard, however, is a monotone shirt. Use a collar for a more formal look, and collarless shirts for a less formal look. Try footwear such as leather shoes, flat trouser shoes, high heels; no open toed shoes. Avoid flip flops, sandals and sneakers. Heels are okay, so long as they aren't too conspicuous.
Complete the business casual look. Remember dress socks or pantyhose with skirts or dresses and tastefully accessorize with light jewelry and a simple purse. Ask yourself the following set of questions if you're still not sure whether your outfit is acceptable. The answer should be 'no.
Method 2 Quiz True or False: Low-cut dresses are acceptable business casual wear. For business casual, tie is optional. Unlike pants, all manner of shirt colors are acceptable: Purple, pink, yellow, blue, and red. Choose shirts and pants in "formal" fabric: Cotton is king, and comes in many different flavors. Wool is acceptable, if itchy. Silk, rayon, and linen are frowned upon. Choose shirts in "formal patterns: Oxford, plaid, and poplin are a little less formal, but perfectly acceptable.
Twill, herringbone, and broadcloth patterns are more formal and nice to use if sprucing up. Wear pants styles such as khakis, dress pants, trousers and corduroy pants. Jeans are not considered business casual. Pleated pants and dark colors are more formal, conservative choices. If you want to be on the safe side, over dressing is less frowned upon than under dressing. Pants should extend to the top of your shoe, or slightly longer.
Pants that don't reach down to your shoe are considered high-water pants; pants that fold and bunch up near the feet are considered too baggy. Avoid pants in loud colors such as red, yellow, and purple. Camouflage is not allowed, neither are white pants — they feel a little too informal for even business casual.
Stick with black, brown, grey, khaki, dark blue and dark green pants. Consider pairing your shirt with a sweater or sweater vest. V-neck sweaters work best if wearing a a collar. Turtlenecks can be worn in combination with a blazer for a sleek look and a little bit of novelty. If you want to wear a suit coat and still look business casual, dress it down with khakis instead of suit pants.
Stick to black, brown, or grey shoes. Oxfords, lace-ups, and loafers are all standards. Study the list of don'ts. Avoid the following items, which, fortunately or unfortunately, don't fall under the category of business casual: Sneakers, sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes. Sports shirts, sweatshirts, sport team jackets, and athletic socks. Very tight, and hence revealing, cuts of pants. Method 3 Quiz What is proper business casual attire for men? None of the above. Most companies consider a polo shirt part of the business-casual spectrum.
