You might be the most talented, experienced, and brilliant applicant your potential employer has ever met, but there’s a chance those factors won’t be enough to land your dream job. Even if you’re perfectly qualified for a position and nail every interview question, you might not get the job if you’re not dressed right for the occasion.

To dress for success, wear a neutral-colored suit with a white button-up and tie. Or, you could wear a pencil skirt with a white or light-colored blouse. Alternatively, if you’re going for a business casual look, wear khakis and a button-up shirt or a knee-length dress.

1. Choose a Solid Color That Isn’t Distracting

2. Invest in a Bespoke Suit

3. Show Sophistication With ‘Smart Casual’ Style

4. Play It Safe With Ink, Piercings, and Facial Hair

5. Pay Attention to the Details

Your choice of clothing might seem like a small factor in the larger scheme of landing a job, but making a winning impression with your wardrobe is more important than you think.
