I'm all for wearing a dress to an interview as I think they can look very smart however this one is trying to be vintage and fails.it is not smart enough for a formal interview even if worn with thick tights and smart shoes.
Definitely not. And YY to wearing a jacket, whatever dress you end up with. No one ever complained that someone looked too professional at a job interview (assuming you are not going for a job as eg a nursery nurse and will need to play with kids!)
Fairly sure it's a no to the dress and definitely no, no, no to dress with no jacket! If the dress is knee length and demure looking with a jacket then maybe, providing you didn't take the jacket off. Can you post a pic?
I work in Recruitment (previously legal recruitment) and would say always wear either a trouser suit or a knee length dress with a smart blazer or cardigan. Some solicitors are very old fashioned and can put a lot of emphasis on being smart. Always better to be over dressed than under.
