So the economy is kind of in a free fall right now given the global pandemic happening (although I’m sure you don’t need to be reminded), but that doesn’t necessarily mean hiring is at a standstill. The whole interviewing and job hiring process might be a little different these days (i.e., it might be over Zoom or the phone rather than in person), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it your all in the fashion department. If you have an interview coming up—first of all, how exciting! Congrats!—consider these cute outfit ideas that’ll make you feel confident and impress all the right people. Of course, the outfit is just a first impression, but we know you’ll really blow ’em away with your smarts and thoughtful answers.
If it does happen to be through a video or phone call, I find that dressing up head-to-toe anyway puts me in the right headspace to feel prepared and answer any questions. And I’m sure whoever is conducting it will appreciate the effort. As for the actual job, there are different outfits you can wear depending on your career, so you can choose to stick with a classic button-up and pants for something more corporate or go out on a limb with something more bold if it’s for something in a creative field. Here, 18 cute interview outfit ideas for any kind of role.

A long-sleeve top, zip-up skirt, and ankle boots are surefire way to nail the interview.

Betty Pink Lily Print Silk Shirt
A pretty pink top and coordinating trousers is a great way to standout from the other applicants. Wear it with pumps or even fancy flats to complete it.

Rivera Shirt Dress
A flowy A-line number with a belt at the waist strikes the perfect balance of low-key and pulled together. Neutral ankle-strap sandals finish the look.
