Visitors: 415

You've fine-tuned your resume and landed that important interview for the perfect job. Now, you need to figure out what plus size suits will make you look professional and stylish. There are many options for plus size suits, but let's narrow down the search to what will give you the sharp image that you need to impress your interviewers.

What Type Of Job Are You Interviewing For?

When you begin searching through the racks of plus size suits, keep in mind the position for which you are interviewing. If you are hoping for a job in a creative field such as advertising, art, fashion, or entertainment, you will want to choose more colorful fabrics and trendy styles in suits. Potential accountants, bankers, and financial planners should stick to conservative colors, styles, and fabrics. And, if you are hoping to land a sales position, look for tailored suits in assertive colors.

Consider Your Body Type

No two bodies are alike, but here are some general guidelines that will help you select the best style for your figure. If you are top heavy, your best suit options will be single breasted with narrow lapels. Ample hips and thighs can look slimmer with a duster or fingertip-length coat. If you have a shapely waist, peplums or jackets with fitted waists can play up your curves without looking too suggestive for an interview. Tall, leggy women always look great in pantsuits.

What To Wear Under The Jacket

If you have found the perfect interview suit, you will need to select a coordinating shell, blouse, or sweater for under the jacket. This is where you can add some pizzazz with a bright color or interesting pattern. Stay away from frills, lace, or ruffles though. The goal is to look streamlined and professional, not fussy or overtly sexy. As well, make sure that you are not showing cleavage. This is an absolute no-no for an interview.

Accessorize Carefully

Like it or not, you will be sized up during an interview. Too much jewelry and makeup, or scuffed, cheap looking shoes will give the wrong impression. Take the time to refine your look by selecting one tasteful piece of jewelry. Keep your makeup and hairstyle simple. Polish your shoes and carry a professional looking handbag or attaché.

With these tips you will be well on your way to landing your new job. Make sure that you feel comfortable with what you are wearing, and don't forget the most important thing that you can wear to any interview is a confident, friendly smile.
