Would this be OK for an interview, or too much do you think?

It looks more raspberry than pink in the photo, but is it OTT. I want to me memorable, but not for all the wrong reasons. What do you reckon?

With sombre accessories I think it would be just fine, although it depends on the profession to some extent...

It's already got the black belt so with black shoes and other accessories I think it would look very smart. Like Amber says though it very much depends what the job is.

Public sector, so not restrictive, but not too flamboyant either.

I was looking at a navy blue suit and my daughter accused me of being old, boring and predictable, so I think I may be reacting to that. Is she right, or would I regret it in the morning?

I love it - very Joan from Mad Men

I like it. I work for a housing association and would happily wear that, although it is dressier than what my colleagues tend to wear.

I think that it's fab. I wish it was in my size!

Make sure you present an really confident image to go with the suit though - not an outfit to be shy in!

I just hope its my size also - 14 seems to vary a bit. I'm not Joan from Mad Men slim, so I hope it will still be OK on curves.

Its a confident image I'm trying to portray, but without being brash.

It's definitely not brash imo - very stylish!

Thanks all. I think it very much depends on the actual colour, if its pink or raspberry. Think I'll risk it on the grounds that I can always send it back if its no good.
