I have an interview next week. Thoughts on this outfit? I wanna stand out but not too much.

I think the color alone (love that blue) would make you stand out. I don’t like the trousers for an interview because of the length (would absolutely wear them to the office or client). I’d steer clear of trendy cuts for an interview and play it up with the color alone IMHO.

Where are you interviewing? If it’s in Fashion, Advertising or someplace trendy, that could work! If a candidate showed up to a Consulting interview with cropped pants and light blue suit in the middle of winter, as an interviewer I would be distracted and contemplate their clothing choices. It could also give the impression that you care more to be trendy then appropriately dressed for an interview.

Would not fly in fashion because it’s really not in style right now. Too many items going on at once which were trendy but don’t work together (shawl collar, cropped pants, button-less, boxy). And don’t get me started on a professional wearing a polyester suit to an interview. Also, you are spot-on, I would question her judgement as well.

1. Depends on the company 2. The color is spring/summer so you will stand out for sure since it’s not in season yet.

Unless you are interviewing for a job in hospitality in Palm Beach, I would choose another outfit. The crop pants, the shoes and the color look more resort than office. Which may be appropriate for where you are interviewing 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Nooooooooooooo really no. You never want your outfit to be the primary focal point of your interview in consulting.

I would opt for a bright shirt/top to stand out but stick to boring/dark color suit to be safe. Also longer pants.
