Clothing to not wear to an interview, so to speak, was one of the topics Clinton and Stacey love to talk about pretty often. And while I adore What Not to Wear and the way they turn frumpy people into fabulous success stories, I’d really love to see them doing an entire show on dressing up for an interview and making the best first impression. We’ll have to wait for that one, I guess, but that doesn’t mean we can’t trade both well and lesser known tips while we wait. Let me break the ice with a short list of clothing to not wear to an interview all job seekers could find extremely useful:
1. Black Suit
TLC’s dynamic duo, Clinton and Stacy do have a few things to say when it comes to clothing to not wear to an interview. And while Stacy advises you to go for a suit, Clinton believes it most definitely shouldn’t be a black one. Go for smart grey instead of a too traditional, too no-nonsense black, he says while Stacey follows right behind suggesting you pair it up with a nice feminine blouse.
