Monday was never a day I was particularly fond of. With the exception of holidays, and the years my birthday falls on Monday of course, a regular Monday signals the start of another workweek. In other words, it’s goodbye Netflix and hello textbooks––for us students at least.
This past Monday, however, restored some of my faith in the once-dreaded weekday as I had the opportunity to interview with Harper’s Bazaar Australia. I am thrilled to share I will be interning in the fashion closet at Harper’s in Sydney!
While the days leading up to my interview consisted mostly of familiarizing myself with Australian fashion icons and designers and reading (and rereading) Harper’s Bazaar articles, the daunting question remained: what was I going to wear?
I settled for a neutral look, combining a bit of New York (a chic blazer and oversized sunnies) with Aussie style (linen pants and platform sandals).
Picking the perfect interview outfit can be intimidating for anyone; after all, first impressions are lasting impressions. Interview fashion varies across professions, but many of the core ‘rules,’ such as dressing in a classy and non-distracting way, remain the same. However, this does not mean you should sacrifice your style! I think two key elements in interview fashion are choosing a look that reflects your values and your confidence. Your outfit should be empowering so you feel ready to ‘wow’ the interviewer and land the job of your dreams!
