I thought black jeans was like the creative interview uniform?

No.

I think as a creative you’re encouraged to have some personality. Not the same for some other positions like maybe SVP’s above. I would say your outfit choice sounds fine, maybe opt for a black or dark jean though!

like

Curious to know where SVP1 works and why this would be a hard ‘no’ for a creative. Because when you’re interviewing with people wearing sneakers and barely washed concert t-shirts (even at VP level and above), a nice top and heels with jeans is practically formalwear.

I wouldn’t. Even though I wear jeans to work frequently. The reason? Even based on threads like these you can see some % of people think it’s inappropriate. Even if it’s oh,80% say jeans are absolutely fine and 20% say No, I don’t like it. Why risk that your interviewer may include one of those 20%.?

You can still look creative, interesting, hip, cool, whatever you’re going for that’s still you with something else.

I’m also reminded of a boss I had eons ago who told me re: work attire: You can wear anything you want. Just realize people will judge you and make assumptions about you based on that.

So, for me, no I wouldn’t. I’d dress like I would for a client meeting.

You do you.

I tend to lean more formal, personally. But if they’re not cool with your 🔥 fashion sense, then maybe it’s not the right place for you!

I always dress up my jeans for interviews. Pretty good batting average for offers

This is an opportunity to show off your personality, use it. You can absolutely look interview appropriate even to the most stuffy execs and not wear business attire. Like others said, you will he judged on what you wear, use it to your advantage!

Yes

Yes with a blazer and a smile! Good luck! Also, heels? Wow. Wedges or platforms at least? Or we talking like SJP collection type heels? And if so, I hope you’re taking a cab.
