So, you nailed that resume and you were called in for the interview.
Now, what to wear to the interview?
Naturally, a suit is the answer! But what color?
You have two choices.
What are my choices?
1) Navy or 2) Charcoal.
That's it. Easy rule to remember.
No black. Black suits are for funerals and mob members. And although a little bit of your soul might die every time you're faced with another interview, you're not dead yet. If you're in the mob, you don't have to interview anyway.
No pinstripes. I love pinstripes when done well, but they connote power. You are not powerful, yet. Save them for when you're hiring new recruits and can call the shots. Leave contrast collared shirts at home. You are not Gordon Gekko.
No 3 pieces. No double-breasted suits.
See "No Pinstripes."
No more than 3 buttons on your suit. You are not a football player or a rapper.
No plaids. Unless your suit is a very-very subtle glen plaid in charcoal or navy.
Did I say no black?
The goal of an interview suit is to keep it simple and show that you can look presentable. If the interviewing attorney goes back to the office and cracks some jokes about what you were wearing, it's not a bonus for your employment prospects.
Once you get the job you want, wear that crazy red zoot suit you're dying to break out. Or better yet, don't. Set it on fire to keep you warm during the cold winder months!
