      The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The first judgment an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That's why, in many cases, it is still important to dress professionally for a job interview, regardless of the work environment.
What's the appropriate dress code for an interview? You'll want that first impression to be not just a good one, but, a great one. In general, the candidate dressed in a suit and tie is going to make a much better impression than the candidate dressed in scruffy jeans and a t-shirt.

      Choose between closed-toe shoes, pumps and loafers. If you are wearing a skirt, nylons are a must.

      Avoid miniskirts, tight sweaters, sloppy overalls and sandals with straps.

      Tone down the use of makeup, hair spray, perfume and jewelry. One nose ring is one too many and may cost you the job of your dreams.

      Inspect your hair, nails, hems and the shine on your shoes.

      Wear a silk scarf and carry a nice briefcase or portfolio. Leave the oversized, disorganized handbag at home. and
