What to Wear to an Interview: For a Financial Career

What to Wear to an Interview

Let’s face it: wearing the same black skirt suit to work everyday can get boring. Working in finance requires a different type of dress code – but that doesn’t mean sacrificing your personal style. While we love our power pieces – and think no woman should be without a perfect black blazer - knowing what to wear to an interview for a financial career is a balance between polish and personality.

1. Think menswear-inspired, not masculine. An ivy-league inspired skirt, printed dress, or tailored jacket are a great starting point to build your look. Don’t be afraid of prints when it comes to dressing for a financial interview.

2. Choose at least one power piece. Our pick? A pair of perfect pumps in a deep hue or a crisp white button down.

3. Tie together your look with a piece of statement jewelry. We love a bold necklace paired with an oxford shirt or sheath dress. It’s the perfect finishing touch to complete your look without distracting your interviewer.
