Overdressed, for sure. I wouldn’t want to risk a potential employer thinking I’m not taking the interview seriously.

If there is ever a situation where you have to ask this question, the answer is always over!

Might want to create a poll, OP.

To be honest, it would depend on the job!  If it were for a construction/manual labour-type job, I would opt to be slightly underdressed.  It might give them the impression that I am handy, comfortable, & competent and not too high strung.

* By the way, I’m NOT actually handy in real life, this is just an example why I can see why some people might choose underdressed from these two options.
