There is not many men who dress appropriately for a Sumer interview and this needs to be corrected. What do we mean by that? Mainly that no matter what type of job they are having an interview for, men tend to stick with either wearing a two piece suit or a combination of suit pants with a tucked in dress shirt. While there is nothing particularly wrong with this style, we believe that a summer interview outfit should actually reflect the summer season. Meaning light colourful fabrics should be embraced.
In this article will be discussing the best way how men can dress for a summer interview and look great. Also, we will share some tips that men can remember that will make their outfit stand out to potential employers. Ok, let’s take a look.
When it comes to the best type of shirt to wear for a summer interview, some questions have to first be answered. Questions such as will this be a job primarily in an office setting or is this workplace a variation and more laid back. If you are heading to an interview for a professional office workplace, it is best to wear a white or light blue dress shirt. While if you will be having an interview for a position that is a bit more informal, it is best to wear an Oxford shirt or a plain polo shirt.
The best type of pants to wear for a summer interview will be either suit pants or cotton chinos. Wear a light colour suit pants such as light grey or beige to a professional office interview and beige chinos to a more informal workplace interview. Either way, it is imperative that you wear your shirt tucked in for a professional and confident appearance.
There are really only two type of footwear that men should wear to a summer with that being derby shoes or loafers. Wear a pair of leather derby shoes to a summer interview when wearing suit pants and leather loafers when wearing any colour chinos. The best colour to wear in the summer will be dark brown.
While you will mostly wear a blazer as part of a formal workplace office setting, that does not mean hat you are obliged to wear it to an interview. Many men make the mistake of just showing up to a summer interview wearing a black two piece suit. This is actually not the way to go about it because wearing a blazer to a summer interview should be strategic. Opt to wear a light colour blazer with white dress shirt and suit pants. The key is to not match colours as this will create a more summer look. Wearing a tie is also optional and should be only reserved when you want to spruce up your dress shirt paired with suit pants outfit.
