Good luck! I like Reiss for trousers and silky tops (although the tops can be a bit see through) and I wouldn't wear a full suit now - although they do seem to be back 'in'. (Work in the city - lawyer.). I'd wear a tweedy jacket with the trousers and silky shirt for an interview - lots around - Zara or LK Bennet.
The Fold is lovely but (a) very expensive and (b) formal. The dresses are well cut on me though...
Whistles worth a look too for silky tops. And Jigsaw - depending what colours suit you. It's a bit sludgy for me generally.
Thanks bleughhh, will have look in Reiss as I used to buy work stuff there.
Everyone seems to say no suits! But a few years ago I would wear a suit at least 50% of the time to work, and men would every day. The interview is with a man so i’m sure he’ll be in a suit. So I guess I need a suit??
I'm in mc and most women tend to wear a jacket and dress or coordinating jacket to trousers. There are still lots of people wearing full suits so I don't think you'd look out of place if that's what you wanted to go for? I personally think you can never be too dressed up for an interview, even if in practice in the work place things are less smart. I would focus on tidy hair, clean nails, good shoes and a handbag you can balance sensibly while hand shaking. Good luck
