    I've interviewed people wearing flat or just ridiculous shoes (black sneakers that "pass" for shoes anyone? or sequinned sandal stilettos?). All that does is make me think as a hiring manager "totally inappropriate or disrespectful." Remember, even men's dress shoes are usually heeled at 1.2 inches… This video is a winner!

    Hi Elle, I'm a long term viewer and have seen all these videos before but am rewatching them as I have my first interview for a law firm on Friday! I'm so nervous but rewatching your videos and remembering all your tips, as someone who's been here before, it's such a comfort and is really helping me to calm down. So thank you so much!

    Nude nail polish, natural makeup, nude stockings are still important…bare legs are still considered a no-no in certain positions, conservative purses, the more 'out there' your look, the fewer organizations are likely to appreciate your look- this advice is mainly for more conservative business positions. It always helps to look up as many LinkedIn profiles for that company as you can and check out their attire. Wear minimal jewelry or anything distracting. Never wear jewelry that makes noise-clanking sounds.

    I have an MBA from Wharton, 2 years of IB analyst experience at Goldman, 2 years of associate experience at KKR, just made VP last year and sit on the boards of multiple companies at the age of 28. I can just show up in jogging pants and no one can do anything about it.

    In your climate, that time of your, I would match the 2nd outfit with nearly black stockings, as it's a little unprofessional to wear no legwear with this very conservative outfit. Much as it would be a little uprofessional for a man to wear no tie with a very conservative suit in a colder climate.

    All 3 great looks btw!

    Thank you for sharing your experience on wearing outfits to workplace, that was very good for people who is confidence themselves and as i have observed your review it would be good if you can give the reason why you select this suite and what color or style it can go along with each one. Sometime, it will be good to give general ideas how to wear to workplace everyday. I always follow your review so, please please keep doing

    I've just watched several videos about interview outfits for young women, and yours is the FIRST that doesn't showcase clothes that are tacky, too tight, and inappropriate. Thank you for dressing for the real world!

    I don't think you are talking too much in this, people are just being rude. Anyways, thank you for being my lifeline now that I have started a job in which the dress code is "business formal".
