What is your hubby wearing? If he is wearing a suit and tie, I would wear slacks and a button down or fancier blouse with a sweater over it.

I would wear what you’d wear if it was your interview.

Dress like you’re going for an interview! But make sure you guys match as in one of you isn’t way dressier or way more casual than the other

It depends on the formality of the interview, though I wouldn’t wear jeans or anything to short/revealing even if it is casual.

@bread71:  Off course but….

Whaaaaaa?  Why would you have to be part of the interview?  Does that sound mildly sexist to anyone else?  What if your husband was a single man?  Would they judge him on that?

@mchitt329:  It sounds super sexist to me actually. I would honestly refuse to go if I were the OP. There is no reason a spouse needs to be present for an interview. Sure, maybe if there is a special dinner or event, but not the actual interview. What are they looking for, to see if she looks like a trophy wife for the publicity pictures? Try and figure out if they want kids? Sounds like they are finding a polite way to access information that is illegal for them to ask on a job interview.

Just pretend you are Michelle Obama and rock an awesome dress that compliments what your husband is wearing.

@ChemistryBride:  I was thinking the same thing. I mean, I get where they are coming from I suppose. I just hope they ask the  women who interview for positions which are in the public eye to bring their husbands along. I seriously doubt that they do, however.

My husband comes from a family of college coaches (two of which were just (today!) invited to a hall of fame. (and comes from a family of D1 atheletes, including himself)

Anyway, he says it depends on the school. A southern school for example will expect more of a traditional female role and will want an appropriate length skirt and not tight blouse. A New England school pants will be fine.

Either way, you do not want to over dress your husband.

@ThreeMeers:  Holy sexist.  How is this LEGAL?

@bread71: I think you considering all of those things is between you and your husband.  But if you’re fine with it that’s all that matters.  

I would throw a fit and tell Darling Husband he’s not working for such a company!

@ChemistryBride:  I know it sounds horrible, and probably is, but its not unusual. Being a coach is a family affair.  Your family is involved at all levels, especially the the higher divisions. Kind of like the wife of a polititcian campaiging for her husband.

@mchitt329:  How is what legal? People’s expectations?  If I were interviewing for a design firm I would dress differently then if i were interviewing for a law firm?. Right is not always fair. Fair is not always equal.

Also its not a company, a college so he is a public figure technically. Like a politician. Different rules apply.
