Style/Stalk Does Interview Season: Dress the Part, On Your Budget|
Hello Levo Ladies,
We here at Style/Stalk are so proud to be part of Levo’s exciting new launch (congrats to the team!), and to share with you some fresh ideas and tips on dressing for your upcoming interviews. Whether you’re aiming for a quick wardrobe refresh or need to start from scratch and invest in the foundational pieces, we hope we’ve surfaced some key items that speak to your personal style and work with your budget.
Under $200 | Wardrobe Refresh
As you know, we’ve always been fans of whites at work - but with the new Fall season in tow our moods have started to reflect a more seasonally appropriate color palette. To complement the workwear separates you already own, we recommend updating your outfit by selecting subtle, sophisticated add-ons like a dark snakeskin watch, shoes and bags with mixed textures like leather and felt, and simple silver jewelry. And just in case you find yourself in a last minute pinch (like an unexpected interview or informational meeting), we’re also fans of re-stocking on the basics like this easy, non-iron fitted dress shirt.
Under $500 | Set The Foundation
For those of you who have yet to secure the full head-to-toe, we’ve also found two easy options – one more obviously traditional and another a bit more daring. With this fantastically well-fitting suit, we’d pair its separates with an easy tee or more formal colorblocked sweater, with an oversized menswear-inspired watch and feminine pumps. For the more playful types (and perhaps more relaxed or creative-oriented interviews), we love the idea of a luxe, flowing shirt dress topped with a bright statement coat on top, as well as easy finishings like black tights and a structured leather bag.
With these shopping and styling tips in mind, we wish you the best of luck in your upcoming interviews. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or email us at hi [at] stylestalk [dot] com.
P.S. In addition to guest blogging for Levo, STYLE/STALK is gearing up for a launch of our own! Over the last few months, we’ve been building a platform that turns STYLE/STALK into your own real-time, personal style stream that lets you follow your favorite style sources and influencers in one place.
We’ll be opening up our site in just a few weeks – to reserve your spot, please request an invite and we’ll be in touch shortly!
