Sounds perfect. Smart but comfortable.

Good luck!

Personally, I wouldn't wear black from top to bottom. Looks a bit closed and forbidding.

Otherwise, wear what you are comfortable in and be yourself.

Good Luck!

Sally S.
Wear what you are comfortable in. It's not a job interview, and you will not be judged on your appearance. On the other hand, you will make a good impression if you appear clean, tidy, smart and organised.
Good luck.

OK, I'm going to sound like Trinny and Susannah now - how about a coloured shirt underneath or a chiffon scarf to break the black up a bit and "draw the eye away from" areas you don't like?

Are they both black?

I think I would go for the one with the collar because it breaks up the black. If you got the other v-neck in pink wear that.

On my interview day everyone was in such a mix of clothes, someone even came in very scruffy jeans and a tee!

Good luck!!

Shirt and jersey defo. Shoes sound perfect to me, point toes are de rigeur in the City so should do for a uni interview!

Do you have a smart bag? And no dangly earrings!

I really wouldn't worry too much, people going for university interviews wear anything from suits to full goth regalia!! As long as you feel comfortable and confident you will be able to represent yourself well.

I was interviewing prospective postgrads yesterday and the best by far still had his iPod headphones round his neck throughout the interview if that's any comfort (we gave him the studentship)

Your outfit sounds fine, good luck! Hope it goes really well for you. As you say, if you feel comfy it will work. Have a couple of good questions of your own to ask at the end, it helps to make you feel it's more of a dialogue than an interview. Enjoy it!

sally, all your outfits look very professional

Good Luck!
