Interview Prep: What to wear

Justin Ling Updated by Justin Ling


This matters. The goal is to come across clean, professional and put together. The dress code for the interview is: "business formal."


One of the most important parts of your outfit is fit. You want to make sure your clothes fit your body almost perfectly. Not too tight, not too baggy. Take the time, and try out different outfits in search of the right fit.


For dress shirts & blouses: stick to white or a lighter blue.

For suits/jackets: stick to black, grey, and navy blue

Ties: You can show a little bit of personality here, and choose colours and patterns that stand out more.

You want to use a Windsor knot, learn to tie one here:

You don't need to spend a fortune on your clothes, but investing in at least one professional outfit is worth it. Put in the extra effort to iron your clothes, so you look crisp in your interview.
