Remember that you also need to look the part for the job you are applying to. The look in this example could be appropriate for a sales associate job at a high-end retailer, staff in an upscale hotel or restaurant, as well as any number of office jobs. Yet this same look would be regarded as badly underdressed for most jobs in law firms, large financial institutions, or government agencies. On the other hand, it would be gawkily stodgy for a no-collar job or tech startup environment.
Whatever you wear to an interview, it needs to be the look of a leader in the role you are applying to. And you need to feel physically comfortable in that look, so that your body language also projects confidence. In other words, don’t wear generic business casual to an interview as a default. Choose it because it is the look of success for the role you are applying to.
