Q&A: What to Wear to an Engineering Interview for Women

Q:  Maybe you should give some suggestions on what female engineers should wear to an interview too.

Linen-Cotton Colette JacketA: 
We recently ran an article advising men what to wear to an engineering interview at a technology startup, and we got a request to give some advice to women engineers.

Like we said in the men’s article, the ideal interview outfit blends the professionalism required of a job interview with the casual spirit of a tech startup.

Here’s three foolproof interview outfits:

(1)  Button-down Shirt + Dark Rinse Jeans.
The women’s version of the men’s foolproof outfit.

(2)  Cardigan Twinset + High Waist Trousers.
On-trend trousers paired with a business casual classic.

(3) Cropped Jacket + Knit Shirt + Dark Rinse Jeans.
Mix it up with a standout structured jacket (like the one pictured at left) and the most formal of jeans.

Finish off each outfit with a structured handbag and a pair of low heels or flats.
