  • A classic black suit is a great choice for a first purchase.
  • Under your suit, a nice button-up collared shirt in white or other neutral colors is recommended.
  • It is best to keep your tie simple. Wear a solid color or one with a basic striped pattern.
  • Coordinate your shoes and belt to match. Wear black shoes with a black belt.
  • Match your socks to your suit. A few nice pairs of black dress socks are a worth while investment. 
  • It is best to cover up all tattoos and to remove any facial piercings.
  • If you have ear piercings considering wearing simple studded earrings.
  • Avoid wearing heavy cologne as this may affect some people's allergies.

  • Consider wearing a suit in black, brown, dark grey, or navy blue.
  • Avoid bright color and distracting patterns.
  • Make sure that your entire outfit is clean and wrinkle free.
  • Plan ahead and make sure your suit has enough time to be dry cleaned before your interview.
