Hello I am going for an internal post for which i am 99.99 recurring sure i'd get an interview for - my plan is to wear a black jersey shift/pont(?!) type dress knee length and a cropped black and white tweed jacket (no buttons hard to describe) What on earth do I wear on my feet I usually wear ballet pumps... and should I wear tights seeing as it will be summer. I was also planning to wear my pearl earrings (v simple) and a y drop pearl & chrystal necklace (for luck really).
I am known for my leggings and dress style at work but would leggings be too informal under the dress - also feel the need to inject some colour in to the outfit as its all a bit boring - fuschia ballet pumps??? The job is as a Research Administrator at a Uni if that helps . I will also have a train commute on the day.
I think im just really lacking confidence as my last interview was internal within my own department sideways move - I didnt get it :-( I have been in the same job for the last 8 years - I want to feel comfortable and like myself.
Oh and one last thing - I have a Mumsnet haircut with side swept fringe usually wear a low side pony - or shoudl I wear it straight and ghd'd to an inch of its life (when i feel most confident )
that means tights doesn't it :-( - I have suitable (boring) shoes I can wear black suede , block heals round toes. I am mixed race so can't really wear flesh coloured tights - I really fancy a pair of those sheer tights with little dots on them would that be ok??
Kitten heels = good maybe a different colour though - I do love red but I never wear it with black/ white (a bit too corporate for me) , still unsure about the bare legs bit really though especially as my knees are quite dark ( mixed race thing).
Re: Kitten heels are we saying that colour is ok ? ( this is the bit where I am veering towards Fuschia again)
No to leggings! Yes to tights, and the hairstyle you feel most comforatbale with. I would not worry about making a statement with your clothes - just shoes you can walk in, not totally flat with a dress, kitten heels you can walk in souds good, and a big bright, confident, happy smile!!! Best of luck!!!!
