Used to live in nyc and miss dressing like all of the above. In Austin now, interview clothes are “does it smell?” People here dress, how do I put this nicely, comfortably. Your surroundings and interview environment matters. Wear what fits the bill and makes you”look” part of a team. Even if that’s ripped jeans, sneakers, and an oversized sweater 🙄

Oh I hear you! I worked in London UK and now live in a city where people also like being comfortable. And I have to fit in, so I basically feel sad for not being able to dress up well like before because I’ll stand out too much.
