There are situations where first impression is important, such as a job interview, and you can make sure you leave a good one with a proper outfit.
Anna Wintour, a long-time editor of Vogue, is the right person to ask about this.
“It’s so interesting to me how people dress when they come in for interviews,” Wintour says. “Sometimes you feel they’re wearing clothes that they just bought that morning, or maybe the night before, and not something that in any way suits their personality and who they are. And I think what everybody should remember, whether they’re interviewing at Vogue or indeed anywhere, [is] that we’re not hiring your wardrobe; your wardrobe is not going to be doing the job for you. It’s who you are.”
One time, she hired a guy who came to an interview wearing a dress and a handbag. She loved that he didn’t pretend to be someone he wasn’t.
