Internship Interview?

Q. I am a Social Work major at a local university and I am doing a senior internship starting in the fall of 2010. The question I have is that I have to go in for an interview for the Internship and I don't know what I should wear. I have never gone for an interview before and I am really nervous.

A. I have no idea if you are a woman or a man, so I'll describe both genders briefly.

If you have a suit, that would be the best option, but you might not. That's understandable. They know you are a student.

If possible, go for a long-sleeved button-up top in a conservative color and pair it with a neutral-colored pair of dress pants (black, gray or navy, preferably.) If you don't have a long-sleeved shirt, go with 3/4 length. I wouldn't go any shorter than that. Absolutely no jeans, even if they are dark wash.

Wear a pair of conservative low-heeled pumps that match. (No overly trendy shoes and try not to wear anything that's too "strappy" or that shows off too much of the foot.) If you don't have the heels, go for whichever flat you have that is cleanest and simple.

You can also substitute the pants for a similar colored skirt, as long as the skirt is long enough so that your thighs are covered when you sit.

If you carry a purse, don't carry one that's wild looking. Switch to a plain colored structured one, if you have that. Or, leave it in the car and carry your resume and other important items in a briefcase (that's often what women prefer to do).

If you're a man, it's a lot of the same stuff. The long-sleeved shirt, the pants...but, obviously, you can skip the pumps and purse and add a conservative tie that coordinates well with the rest of your outfit. :O)

Most importantly, make sure everything is pressed and cleaned and fits well in key areas.

Ladies what kind of clothes do you like on men? Like styles, brands, stores ect.?
Q. Im a 20 year old slim male. I feel like im starting to grow out of the clothing stores I used to shop at as a teenager, maybe this is a sign of me becoming more mature! Haha but anyways I'd be helpful to hear some girls opinion on what looks good on a guy my age, what syles they like, and any good stores I should shop at. Thanks :)

A. My heart always skips a couple beats when I see a man in Burberry.

As far as styling goes, I'm head over heels for guys who channel their inner trendy professor- slightly disheveled but also very dapper. Bonus points for argyle, elbow patches, sneakers, and geeky glasses. For a more casual look, go for premium denim and a James Perse v-neck, paired with a high end hoodie, if climate control is necessary. Make sure you wear good shoes. Women are obsessed with shoes.

On to brands. Designer clothing is king. Once again, I love Burberry. Marc Jacobs is another one of my favorites. Ralph Lauren, Dolce and Gabbana, and basically anything from Barneys are all good bets. If those are out your range, try perusing their look books for inspiration and then book it to H&M or Urban Outfitters.

My favorite store for men by far is J.Crew. The style/cost/quality ratio is perfect, and they are always willing to help. If you have a large budget make the sales associates at Saks, Neimans, and Nordstrom your new bff. Otherwise, go for well made store brands for basics, and supplement them with trendier pieces from Urban Outfitters, Forever 21.

All that being said, be true to yourself. Trust me, women will notice.


Happy Shopping!
