    Congrats on the interview! I voted for outfit B (because it looks great and you feel good in it), the wedges and honestly I didn’t notice the 3 fingernails had different polish on them, so whichever one you like best works!

    And good luck tomorrow!

    Congrats bee! Wedges for sure! I would also tuck the shirt in, you’ll look more polished 🙂 I agree with B but would add a blazer. I’m a lawyer so a blazer/suit is necessary in my field, but I think that they pull the look together and scream professional.

    Definitely b! Because it looks great and you like it the best! If you feel comfortable in your outfit, you’ll be more comfortable in the interview. And I’d say go with the wedges if you’re fine walking in them and either nail polish would be fine I think. Good luck!!

    babygrandmabee:  Another vote for B, wedge, and camoflauge. I’m just commenting to add that I would tuck in the teal shirt to make it a little more polished. Good luck!

    Vote for B and a wedge shoe. Also, could you try tucking the shirt into the the skirt, but keep the cardi untucked? I think tucked in shirts with skirts look more polished.

    babygrandmabee: I was liking option B until I saw option D, so voted that plus the wedge shoes and the Grey Suede nail varnish. Best of luck to you!

    DEFINATELY take the top without sleeves, and a fitted/semi fitted suit-jacket over that. And wedges, of course. And i’d choose the gray-ish nailcolor! (The first) the other two looks a bit unfresh? Good luck on the interview! 💐

    Now I read you latest update. Can’t you get a blazer? If you don’t have much money H&M has budget alternatives! And if the shirt is too small, buy a size larger. It doesn’t have to cost much but it will change the whole impression of you as a person. Please, just do this. it can make the difference. And if you get the job, you will get the money back in no time, and if you don’t, well, then you will need the shirt and blazer on your next interview anyway!

    B without the cardigan- the cardigan looks a bit unpolished.  But I loved the pop of color!  Wedges and any of those nail polishes.

    At least get a blazer! You’ll be fine with a 20-50 $ one! You would look great! And also, please, not outfit B? why is everyone saying that? It does not look “polished” at all, to be honest. I would hire you in the top+blazer+wedges! For sure! 🙂

     

    I’d rather see you wear outfit C on a interwiew at my company! That one is also a very good alternative!
