I always used to wear a suit to interviews but I found in the last couple of years before I had Poppy that this was becoming a dated notion. As part of my job I used to facilitate a lot of interviews and ladies interview wear seemed to be steering more towards smart separates and shift dresses.

I decided to wear a lovely patterned blouse from Dorothy Perkins, I think its important to wear a splash of colour, or an interesting pattern to an interview to make a visual impression, obviously in the right way, probably best to stay away from neons and such like!!
I love the look of blouses tucked into high waisted skirts and trousers, thought it was important to add a contrasting belt to break it up though. I sized up to a 24 in these particular trousers, felt with the style they may have given me the unfortunate "camel toe" if I'd have stayed true to size!!!
I finished the outfit off with my favourite work shoes, my Kurt Geiger T straps. I've had these about 8 years, they are such a great shoe, classic but with enough interest not to be boring. Sorry about the picture though, I'm not feeling too good and its come out a bit shaky!!!
Find out what Claire, Rebecca, Nicole and Gina would wear to an interview....
Do you agree? has there been a shift from suits for interviews, or are you a traditionalist?
