10 Things NOT to Wear to an Interview

Posted on: June 3, 2013


What you wear says something about you. And while there are many right things to wear to an interview, there are a few wrong things, too. Check out Monster.com’s 10 fashion no-no’s for a job interview.

  1. Crazy nails. Wild nail polish or nails that are too long can give the wrong impression. Even men should trim and file.
  2.  Jangly jewelry. Wear only one earring per ear and no more than two rings per hand. And no face jewelry.
  3. Open-toed or backless shoes. Remember, it’s an interview, not a cocktail party.
  4. Bare legs. Sorry ladies, this applies even if it’s warm.
  5. Out-of-date-suit. Make sure your suit fits correctly and check your lapels. If needed, take the suit to a dry cleaner for a quick fix.
  6. Short skirt. Keep the hemline no higher than two inches above the knee. And no Capri pants or leggings.
  7. Leather jackets/blazers. For men or women, leave the leather at home.
  8. Turtlenecks (for men). At least for the first interview, wear a collared shirt and give strong thought to a tie.
  9. Trendy or sassy handbags. Choose a purse that’s conservative and inconspicuous.
  10. Brightly colored briefcases. If you bring a briefcase, make sure it’s black or brown and in good condition.
