I had poor dressing sense during my early career start up days. I went to the interviews with some quite odd colors. Right now once i gained some exp working in the company i got to know How to Dress!

Nice Post :)

Planning ahead is essential. Once I could only find one black shoe and one white shoe. My job interview was minutes away.

I found out after I was hired that one person did not want to hire me because I had some large earrings on. They were dressy and I had worn them with my suit before, but they were more for church instead of a job interview.

I always buy the whole suit, which was paired up by the sales girl cause I am poor in choosing a fit clothes. The ideas you share are helpful, thank you.

It's important to dress for the type of job you are hoping to get, for example a fashion retail job will have a completely different dress code to a office business job. Stay true to your style but always dress smart and sophisticated. Team your outfit with classic accessories such as a timeless leather handbag and a pair of cream/black courts and you're on to a winner!
Thanks for the post.
