– [Woman] So you just landed an interview. Do you know what to wear? Dressing professionally is expected, but what does that mean? Here are some examples. You can always customize your
selections in your own way, as long as you follow a few general norms for professional dress. For your top, neutral
colors and nice material and basic patterns are always a good idea. A blazer or suit jacket
is the most common form of professional top. A jacket is not always necessary if your top is long sleeved. A short sleeve or sleeveless shirt needs to be paired with a
matching blazer or suit jacket. T shirts, tank tops, and other
casual items don’t work here. Be careful with bold
colors and loud patterns. Draw attention to yourself
through your experiences and personality instead. Pants and skirts should match
appropriately with your top. The same color, pattern and
material rules also apply. Capri pants are generally
less accepted than long pants. Skirts and dresses should be no shorter than two inches above the knee. Any kind of denim or shorts are never considered professional. Closed toe heels, flats,
loafers and dress shoes are the suggested options for foot wear. Make sure the colors are neutral and match your top and bottom. Always avoid flip flops, sneakers, high heels and most sandals. Keep your hair well groomed,
including facial hair. Long hair styles should be
kept away from your face. Do not wear a hat of any kind. A tie turns your business
casual suit professional. It is strongly recommended. All of these rules apply to
any career related event, including the career expo. If you don’t have any of these items, stop by the Knights Pantry. Still have more specific questions? Come see Career Services. (upbeat music)
