If you’re not sure what to wear, we’re here to help with a few great ideas that’ll make you feel more than capable–no matter the role. One important thing to remember when dressing for an interview is that you can still be stylish when you have to wear business casual outfits! Find something that displays both your personality and your professionalism while also making you feel confident and competent.
Perfect Plus Size Interview Blouses
Pair any of these chic plus size blouses with a pair of tailored work pants in black or navy for an interview look that looks flawless but also feels comfortable and effortless. All of these professional tops would work great with a pair of crisp, white slacks, too, especially if you’re going for a lighter look during the warmer seasons. To dress things up, add a pair of cute booties and some dainty jewelry to your look.
Guess Who’s Back Blouse, Burgundy—According to color psychologists, burgundy signifies sophistication and power, so it’s basically the perfect color for a big interview. We’re crazy about this flattering blouse because it’s understated and professional yet shows your trend-forward side in a subtle manner.
Spiced Cider Blouse, Olive—Got a bit of a boho soul? Your interviewers will be totally charmed by this cute embroidered blouse featuring full front button detailing and hippie-inspired bell sleeves. The floral embroidery and dressy silhouette take it up a few notches to make it appropriate for your big debut in the interview room!
Peace and Love Blouse, Mauve—Featuring a figure-flattering silhouette with a sharp V-neckline, button sleeves and some feminine gathering at the shoulders, this cute-as-can-be blouse brings the personality but doesn’t go over the top. It can be worn as a show-stopping topper or as a layer beneath a chic jacket or blazer, depending on the weather and what you’re aiming for with your look.
Morning Meetings Blouse, Mauve—Pretty, bright and flattering to boot, this mauve blouse brings a feminine capability to your ensemble. It looks absolutely perfect when paired with some faux suede booties and a leather tote bag that screams “boss lady.” We also love this blouse for interviews because it’s comfortable, so you won’t feel like you need to adjust anything while you’re crushing the tough questions.
Polished Plus Size Interview Dresses
Dresses are always a good choice when you’re facing a panel of tough critics, especially if they look polished. Again, you totally don’t have to sacrifice your personal sense of style to show that you’re the best person for the role. Just choose something that makes you feel relaxed and confident. We’re big fans of our plus size midi dresses because they tend to do just that!
Cider in Aspen Dress, Red—If you’re heading toan interview in the fall or winter, infuse a little seasonal spirit with this cute dress featuring cozy fabric and a flattering silhouette. The buffalo plaid gives it a pop of personality and lets everyone know you’d be a fun, relaxed co-worker (AKA the best kind), while the black dress element shows professional polish. Paired with some knee-high boots, this look is an easy win.
Nice Views Dress, Ivory—For something a bit flirtier and more feminine—yet totally put-together—rock this classic shift-fit dress featuring hues of ivory, pink and navy. The relaxed long sleeves and curved neckline gives it a dressier feel, while the above-the-knee hem helps to show some personality. We love this look with some chic heels or booties to tie it all together. It can also be paired with a tailored jacket or blazer to give it more of a traditional 9-to-5 style.
Dress to Impress (Like the Boss You Are)
We hope we’ve given you some great ideas for your next interview outfit, but as long as you focus on keeping it professional without compromising your sense of style, you can totally count on nabbing yourself an offer. And remember: Comfort equals confidence, so don’t force yourself to wear something that doesn’t feel right!
