To a Job Interview
"Your wardrobe should complement your skill set, never detract — or distract — from your assets," Garcia writes. "The smallest detail can set you apart from your competition. It's essential that you appear professional, capable, and confident without going overboard."
Suit Up: Garcia says a "chic, modern take on the classic suit" is the way to go for first-round interviews and recommends an eye-catching yet tactful touch of flair. "It's refreshing to see a woman who can artfully weave her individuality into an otherwise safe ensemble," notes Garcia, adding that loud jewelry, wild patterns, and heavy embellishments should be avoided. Sorry, sequins.
