Planning what to wear for an interview can always be a daunting task. You want to showcase your personality and stand out from the other applicants; however, you still want to look put together.
Wearing appropriate shoes can be the perfect way to maintain your professional edge, all the while adding a bit of pizzazz to your ensemble. Everyone knows the classic black pump is the go-to shoe of choice for an interview, but there are many other options that will make you stand out from the crowd. If you aren’t a heels girl, there are great flat options that are both cute, and practical. Typically, shoes for an interview should stick to a neutral colour palette, so that you don’t detract from your personality and skills. However, if you are looking to step away from the traditional black or nude, adding a metallic accent is an easy and professional way to add a spark of interest. If you are looking to wear heels, remember to keep them at a mid to low height.
Choosing the right pair of shoes is an important part of your interview outfit, but it is also imperative to remember to dress for the job you are applying for. If you are looking to go into a more creative field, you may be able to wear a pop of colour on your feet, whereas if you are applying to a law firm, you may need to tone your look down even more. After you have decided on your perfect ensemble and the right pair of shoes, you’ll be getting the job in no time.
