So you’re going to be interviewed at the prestigious London motorcycle show, perhaps even for a job at one of the top Japanese bike brands? Or maybe the interviewer will just want to thank you for your time and offer you an espresso. Either way, preparing for the big day can be a lot of fun.
Dressing for an interview is not as easy as it might seem. You’ll want to look your best, of course, but you also want to avoid making a complete fool of yourself in front of a large audience. People who work at prestigious companies often have very high standards and may not appreciate you wasting their time with sloppy or ill-fitting clothes. So how can you dress for an interview to give the best possible representation of yourself? Let’s have a look.
The Traditional Way
The most prestigious companies will certainly want to keep the vintage look as much as possible, and for some reason, the two go well together. Nobody says dress code more explicitly than traditional suits and striped ties. If this sounds like your kind of thing, you can find good-quality replica clothing that will make you look like a million bucks. Just remember that the silhouette is more important than the details, so be sure to check out a few styles before committing. You don’t want to look too trendy or flashy.
Obviously, you won’t need to dress according to what’s trending in order to look great. Just take a look at some of the most fashionable men in the business, and you’ll see what we mean. As for the women, well, you can pull off whatever you want, but we would advise against baggy clothes. These are what is known as the safe option. The silhouette is a way of life that never goes out of fashion.
The Classic Look
Many people still want to keep the vintage look as well but want to dress a little more modern and creative. For these individuals, the safe option is slim-fit or fit-and- flare clothing with a classic look. Be careful when choosing these items because they can end up looking like a cheap copy of the original if you’re not careful enough. The trick is in the fit. You want to be able to pull off a unique look but also ensure that your clothes look good together. Fit is extremely important in making a good impression, and you can achieve this by trying on different sizes and finding one that fits you perfectly.
Again, you don’t need to choose what’s trendy to keep the classic look. Check out the works of Alexander McQueen for women to see what we mean. You can draw inspiration from his collection to create a look that will make you unforgettable.
If none of the above sounds like something you’d like to wear for an interview, then you can go for a casual look that will make you look like a million bucks. The key to making a good impression is in the fit, so you want to be sure that you get the most out of your clothing. The most luxurious look for men is the casual wear with a fitted shirt and tie. This is what is known as the “executive” look, and it can easily be made into a sharp-looking casual outfit with the right accessories. Be careful not to overdo it and go for too much color or pattern, as this could make you look like a mess.
When it comes to women, the luxurious look is very similar, but instead of a tie, a watch is what is needed for the accessory. The watch becomes the focal point, drawing the eye to the outfit and making it stand out. For a more elegant look, you can wear a suit jacket with the collar and lapels turned, along with a high-waisted skirt or a colorful dress that becomes a focal point.
If you’re a fan of the ‘golden era’ of Hollywood, you might want to avoid anything too flashy or loud. These will surely make the HR manager laugh out loud, but they probably won’t make you look like a suitable candidate for the job. The trick here is in the fit. You want to make sure that your clothes look good together and that you achieve the right balance between form and fashion.
As for the men, the above suggestions still apply, but instead of a tie, a watch is what is needed for the accessory. The watch becomes the focal point, drawing the eye to the outfit and making it stand out. The clean-cut look is ideal for the above suggestions because it incorporates the best of both worlds: fashion and functionality. Be careful not to overdo it and go for too much pattern or color, as this could make you look like a mess.
The unexpected, or ‘casual-unexpected’, look is ideal for those of you who don’t want to stick too close to the fashion stereotype. You want to make sure that you stand out from the crowd but don’t want to go too far from what’s fashionable either. This is where you come in; we’re sure that you can pull off something amazing that will make the interviewers say “Oh my God, how did he/she get into such a good fashion company?”

We hope that the above suggestions will help you choose your outfits for the big day. Fashion is subjective, so you can be sure that you’re going to look great for the interview, regardless of what anybody else thinks. Just make sure that your shirt, tie, and suit jacket are all of good quality, and you’ll be good to go.
