What NOT to Wear to a Job Interview

Flip-Flops, Sneakers, or Tennis Shoes

Wear professional footwear, such as:

For women:
  • Business flats 
  • Heels 
For men:
  • Dress shoes

Excessive, Overly Bright Colors

Wear neutral colors to an interview, such as navy, black, gray or brown. Don't be remembered as the bright, flashy green top lady, be remembered for your outstanding achievements and great interview etiquette.

Overdone Makeup

Use natural skin tones like colors when doing your make up for an interview - nude lip gloss, lighter eye shadow, and light bronzers are all good examples. The point here is to look professional.

Wrinkled Clothing

Be sure to iron your clothes. You can do so the night before so you don't have to worry about it the day of your interview.

Denim Jeans

This is one of the biggest interview no-nos. Do not wear jeans to an interview, wear nice slacks, khakis, or a nice, long dress.

Shorts or Short dresses and Skirts

Showing too much skin in a job interview in inappropriate, so avoid wearing these items.

Revealing blouses

Refrain from wearing blouses that show cleavage to an interview.
