5 Accessories To Spice Up Your Interview Outfit



Need a little help adding some pizzazz to your interview outfit? Take advice from our fashion obsessed Events intern, Anna!

Hey guys! My name is Anna Davis and I am an events intern at Bloguettes! Through this internship, I have learned the importance of presentation and portrayal, but that doesn’t only apply to events!

When it comes to what to wear for an interview, all we seem to hear is, “Neutral, neutral, neutral.” While neutrals are in fact an attractive, professional and practical go-to, it does not always show your unique personality. I believe fashion is one of the best ways to express yourself. Here are five ways to spice up your interview outfit!


Accessories are always a great way to express yourself. Whether it is through earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc., choose wisely in what accessories you wear to your interview. Larger, chunky jewelry can be distracting, so opt for something simple, yet elegant. Accessories don’t just have to be jewelry either! Personally, my favorite thing to accessorize with is a neck scarf.

Strut Your Stuff

Shoes are the best part! Wear something you feel comfortable in, but always remember to keep it professional. Loafers and pointed toed heels are a conservative choice while still managing to look poised and chic.

Don’t Forget Hair and Makeup

Doing hair and makeup can be easily forgotten in the stress of picking out what to wear. I like to tone down my makeup for interviews, with a neutral palette and pink blush. As for hair, it is always good to not look like you just rolled out of bed. Opt for a sleek and stylish up-do or loose curls to look as primed as possible.

Say “Yes!” to Different Colors

Using one overall color in your outfit can be boring, and you are far from boring. Incorporate different colors into your outfit for a little more pizazz! Whether it is completely different colors or different shades of a color, this will contrast you from the rest.

The Perfect Bag

Never neglect the bag–you need to bring your resume in something! Purses and bags complement an outfit very well, helping you look more put together and prepared for anything (or any question) that may come your way.
