Hello lovely Luuuxers!
This past week, I had a big moment in my life: I attended my first interview for medical school! In case you dont know, in order to be accepted into medical school in the United States, you must first be invited to have an interview. From there, they can use the feedback from your interview, paired with your application, to make a decision on acceptance. I received an invitation from my first-choice school, and I wa so excited that I was being seriously considered to join this schools class! I dont want to get my hopes up too high in the case that I dont get in, but in any case, I wanted to share my outfit for you guys, because professional attire is useful in many ways: school presentations, job interviews, speeches, and many other times!
I decided to go with the classic black skirt suit with sheer nylon pantyhose. It would have been acceptable for me to also wear pants, but I decided that a skirt would be more comfortable. My black suit jacket is from Calvin Klein, and I bought it at Macys. The satin pleated shell, in aqua green with black pin dots, was also from Macys, from the Jones New York brand. I was lucky to have stumbled across a black suit pencil skirt at TJ Maxx for only $17, and it matched my suit jacket perfectly! Finally, I accessorized the suit and shell with a faux-pearl necklace from Charter Club at Macys, and a pair of sensible closed-toe short heel shoes by Hush Puppies, bought at Marshalls.
I felt very confident and professional in my interview, which I think helped me to perform well! My tip for dressing professionally in these situations is to wear what makes you feel good about yourself, make sure your suit fits you well (and pay for a tailor if it doesnt), and always err on the side of conservatism. If you think your skirt is too short, it probably is! And try to express yourself appropriately while avoiding too many flashy statements, like bright colors or distracting jewelry. Let your professionalism and personality shine instead! :)
