Some Very Basic Tips on What Colors To Wear to a Job Interview and What To Wear
FIrst of all- you probably want to be wearing a suit, regardless of your gender. The color of the suit you wear to your interview should be either
- or black
You should also wear a watch to your interview, as this sends a subconcious or concious signal that you are a timely person (who respects deadlines, etc). So be early for the interview to make sure you are on time.
For shirts and tie colors to wear to a job interview , the following are the best options:
- Blue sends out the signal that you are honest and calm. If you could pair blue with yellow, the color combination suggests honest and cheerful.
- White sends out the signal of order. Red sends out the signal of power. A combination of the two suggests someone who is in charge and organized.
When wearing these colors, be subtle. A bold print won't work as well as a crisp white shirt and a red tie or a blue shirt with small gold (i.e: yellow) stud earrings. Understated when you are interviewing for a job.
