Working mom outfit of the week: What to wear to a job interview at a creative workplace.

Yesterday we were talking about what to wear to a job interview at a creative workplace, like a design agency. One of the suggestions was to mix in unusual details with more standard interview pieces, like a pencil skirt.

From here, you could take the outfit in a more or less conservative direction, depending on your comfort level and where you were interviewing.

Add a blazer for a more suit-like appearance: dark brown if you want to go serious, or patterned or with contrasting stitching if you don’t.

Swap the pumps for cage sandals, booties or something equally on-trend to add another dose of creativity.

Whatever you choose, be sure it fits you and not just the place you’re interviewing at. Your outfit should be an outward reflection of the comfort you feel with who you are. That kind of confidence is a big part of any successful interview.
