Dress for success and dress for the job you want, not the job you have. These popular axioms are worth their weight in gold when it comes to job interviews. Knowing how to dress professionally for an interview can make the difference between getting the job and getting a “we’ll keep you in mind.” Here at Pepi Bertini, we’ve taught many people how to dress for a job interview. The following are some style tips for men that go a long way towards impressing potential employers.
Research Corporate Culture
Start by researching the corporate culture. Make sure the suit you wear to the interview fits the corporate color scheme whether it’s black, blue, grey or white. For banks, law firms and trade offices, a conservative look tends to go a long way. However, that is not always the case, and it is always best to find out if the office is all business or business casual.
Prepare Ahead of Time
Make sure the fit is modern and not dated. Getting tailored for custom suits in Miami before an interview is scheduled, ensures that you have a couple of suits ready to go when the call comes in. After all, knowing how to dress for a job interview does no good if you don’t have a suit for the occasion.
A bespoke suit is always the best option and can take two to three weeks to complete. When ready, it will fit better and provide a more flattering appearance than a suit from the rack. It is sure to be noticed and will help you convey an air of confidence and dignity. The suit should be crafted from high-quality fabrics and cut to the most current fashion trends.
Don’t Forget Shirts and Accessories
In addition to a bespoke suit, it is also advisable to wear a custom-tailored shirt. While it’s always a good idea to have a white shirt, you may want to convey a touch of personality in your color choice, pocket styles, and cuffs. Similarly, choosing the cut of the shirt comes down to personal preference and the style that most flatters your body shape. For instance, a modern contemporary cut gives you the slimming effect of a slim cut combined with the comfortable feel of a classic cut. The right cut can make you look taller, healthier and more professional in the eyes of the interviewer.
Finally, be sure to accessorize properly. Regarding style tips for men, this means making sure the tie, belt, shoes, and bag come together to create an impressive ensemble.
