Traditional Vs Modern Interview Attire!

One of the biggest debates while choosing the attire for your interview is whether you need to go conservative or modern. The answer to this question depends on the type of firm you’re interviewing for. Let’s just say that you are interviewing at a well-established law firm or a bank, whose motto is to conduct things in a very conventional manner. In such cases, it’s always advisable to go with a traditional suit in basic colors; Black, grey or navy blue. Stick to the textbook version of a suit and go for a classic cut. Also, ensure that you’ve a clean-pressed crisp white shirt to go with your suit. Now with all this said and done, your “interview outfit” will never be complete without a nice pair of lace-up shoes. Make sure you have a pair in hand and polish it really well before your big day.

For a modern firm, like a start-up advertising firm which thrives on a creative atmosphere, it’s always good to go with a slightly laid-back style. That being said, you cannot show up to the interview wearing a pair of jeans and a graphic tee. It simply means that you can go for a nice striped or checked shirt with a pair of khaki pants and a vest. Unlike conservative office atmospheres, modern firms recognize the need for individuality while hiring candidates and really appreciate a guy who can cut a class above the rest.
