Ok, I have a casual interview tomorrow morning and just remembered “Oh yeah, I should probably try to wear something nice!” So I went out today and shopped around, found this really cute dress (at least I think it’s cute :)) and thought it was missing something so I paired it with a belt. I’m wearing nude heels with it. So question… Belt or no belt??

Cute dress! I vote no belt, but I might be a little biased because I’m not a huge belt person and I think the dress looks good without it. The belt doesn’t look bad, though. Good luck!!

if you’re going to do no belt i would add a fitted blazer or something. it just looks frumpy without a belt to fit it to your body better.

Agree with Pp, do no belt and a solid color blazer. You can roll up the selves to make it less formal. Even casual interviews should be dressed for in a professional manner. its usually recommended to stay away from prints but you should be ok, esp if you out a blazer over.

My only question is the length. I know you mention that it’s casual, but I think dresses should be at or below the kneecap for interviews.

That is such a cute dress. I wouldn’t wear that particular belt with it. Don’t you have a very thin belt you could pair it with? If not, I vote no-belt

I would not wear the belt to the interview (although it looks cute with the dress) and add a blazer.
The length is just fine, especially without the belt.

What is the interview for? I agree that style dress is not what I would consider interview attire.

Well, I wore the dress, got tons of compliments and the woman who interviewed me said she had the same dress. 🙂 It was for a child development center where they were all in tennis shoes so I think I dressed appropriately. I’m 5’2″ so even “shorter” dresses are a bit longer on me.
Thanks for the advice! I did wear a little thin black belt. 🙂
Aaaaaaand… I got the job! So WOOHOOO!!!
