Avoid these fashion faux pas when interviewing for a job


Not sure what to wear if you land a job interview? You're not alone. Many job hunters are confused about the proper attire for interviewing because it's not uncommon to see people walking around in flip flops, sundresses and T-shirts in many offices. But if you want to make a good impression on potential employers, save the casual wear until after you land a job.

In most cases men and women can't go wrong with a suit. "As a job hunter you are vying for a position. Your current 'job' is to dress to impress your potential employer, says Mona Ashley, an image and style consultant at Magnet Image Consulting. For women "wearing a crisp suit, a neat hairstyle, moderately applied makeup and a fresh manicure will surely impress your potential employer."
