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