HOW TO PICK AN INTERVIEW OUTFIT IN 2022
You must have heard that rule saying that a job candidate should always wear a grey suit to the job interview. And then again, you also heard about tech-guys wearing hoodies at their work and fashionistas wearing ripped jeans and combat boots at the advertisement agencies and media companies. Then there is also the new reality that made us wear a protective face mask whenever we go out.
With all this, I don’t wonder why no one knows what to wear to the job interview anymore. I mean, let’s be honest, the interview outfit rules have changed radically in the last few years. Months, really. The HR ladies in big corporations have become fashion averse. And prefer candidates who follow the latest trends, as this means they quickly adapt to the changes, are independent, creative and overall know how to solve problems. You know what I mean.
Finding out what is in fashion now and how to get it within your budget and later style them to suit the situation is a real struggle. Not mentioning finding the right face mask to wear with your winning job interview outfit.
On the other hand, small startup companies simply prefer to accept someone who shares their lifestyle. Meaning doesn’t show up to the job interview with a tie when they are rolling in the office in their hoodies all day. Yet, don’t want the candidates to look sloppy either.
Undoubtedly, dressing up for the job interview became challenging in the last three years. Even more now, when many job interviews are done online.

INTERVIEW OUTFITS FOR FASHION JOB AT VOGUE OR PR AGENCY
I guess picking an outfit for a job interview at Vogue or another fashion magazine must be even harder than picking a wedding dress. While your boy would marry you even if you came up dressed in a sack, a fashion editor might not give you a job if you show up wearing something boring and unfashionable.
You know, that famous quote from Anna Wintour, right? She once said she would prefer a job candidate to come up dressed in cool jeans than a boring suit. So here, just for you, Anna, some really cool job interview outfits. And yes, job interview outfits with jeans, too!

Anna would love this jeans job interview, for sure.
6 DOUBLE- BREASTED BLAZER WITH LEOPARD PANTS
If you really want to impress HR people in fashion, wear leopard print pants. Even though leopard print is the most fashionable print for 2022, it is still the slipperiest print to wear to work.

9 CROP TOP BLACK SUIT
The past year truly changed the way we dress now. The most fashionable interview outfit for a job interview in fashion is a black suit with a crop top. Indeed, a crop top black suit is the job interview outfit that will help you get an executive role in your favourite fashion office in 2022.
Ps. I believe you will feel the most confident if you show only one or two centimetres of your skin. Hence, I advise you to style the crop top with high waisted tailored pants.
CASUAL INTERVIEW OUTFIT FOR STARTUP
While a suit might be the job interview outfit that used to be the one and only outfit to wear for a job interview, a suit might not be the best possible outfit for the interview at the hooded or hipster startup office. Nor the high heels. The interview at the startup office might be more casual than you think.
My advice – if you don’t know how casual the interview could get, dress business casual. You know, to look approachable and match the geeks in a hoodie who you want to work with.
10 INTERVIEW OUTFIT WITH SNEAKERS
Here, this is a great casual interview outfit for a startup. Tell me, did you ever think an interview outfit with sneakers and jeans could look so good? Yes, it’s very casual, but hell, it’s hireable too. Ps. If you come dressed like this for a tech job in my company, I will, for sure, hire you.

11 CAMEL SWEATER WITH DARK DENIM AND HEELED LOAFERS
Yes, jeans again. But dark jeans, of course. Dark jeans are also great to wear for a job interview at school. Styled with a camel sweater, this outfit shows you are approachable and close to generation Z.
Nonetheless, the dark hue of the jeans will let the headmaster know you will be the one in control of the class.
12 CROPPED SWEATER WITH WIDE-LEG PANTS AND POINTY FLATS
