What do I wear to an interview?

I am about to start applying for jobs in HR (getting back into my previous industry). I feel out of the loop with business style for women after working in a casual work environment for 5 years and Trainer for 2 years.

What is the best way to dress for a professional role? Skirt suit and heels? Jumper and flats? Where do you typically shop for work clothing?

Any inspiration you can offer is greatly appreciated!

Suit+ heels should be good for interviews, a lot companies are business casual but for interviews it is safer to over dress than under.

Agreed with EY 1! My general rule is to go one step above the company dress code for interviews.

If the dress code is casual, dress business casual.
If business casual, dress business, etc.
