If you have been reading my blog in the last few days then you may be aware that I am participating in a style challege with Marks & Spencer. The challenge is to decide how I would style my M&S suit based on an interview scenario I am told about each week by the brand’s PR team. Last week it was all about dressing for an interview at a fashion house. This time I have been set the task of choosing what I would wear for an interview for a more senior role at a corporate firm.
So I decided to go for a formal look.
I chose to wear a button down shirt this time, along with a striped tie. I love the trench coat – it’s such a classic and makes a perfect companion for the suit. The coat is perfect for this season when we are enduring days of rain – after all, you don’t want marks from raindrops all along the shoulders and sleeves of your suit jacket.
Instead of wearing a pair of Converses, this week I went along with a good pair of black Oxford lace-ups. You should always ensure your formal shoes are clean and carefully polished as your entire outfit should look professional, and it always helps to look immaculate.
