Is this dress appropriate for a job interview?

Tell me if it's not! I'm really clueless and find it difficult to dress for anything because I'm a short size 20.

The job is Civil Service management.

I think it's absolutely fine. I assume you already own it?

Yes, fine.

I work in the civil service and it's spot on for either interview or wearing on a meeting day. Good luck

Phewf! I thought it might not look smart enough.

I don't own it yet Swedish, the interview's not for a couple of weeks and I'm on a hunt for something to wear.

Thanks for the quick responses x

I work with the civil service a lot and it looks great to me!

Only concern is that you'd be a bit warm in July/August?

That's really cute! I work in the civil service and it's definitely the right level of dressy for an interview. If your department is anything like mine though, it's more relaxed day to day at all grades for women.

Civil service manager here - absolutely fine. Good luck!

It's great! Thanks for the link to the site there's lots I like on it too and will try and narrow down what I like to pick a dress for work myself (primary school office)
