You may also have several years of experience in a particular field and are looking to make a career change, but haven’t touched up on what is appropriate to wear to that interview.
It’s no secret the times have changed and in large part, thanks to our generation. We are bold, fearless, and determined.

Just decades ago jeans were more common for a relaxing Saturday morning or a night out at the local country club. Today they are found in many workplaces due to the comfort, diverse style changes, and revised fashion trends.

For this reason, the infographic below was created as a fashion guide specifically for the modern woman to follow so that the simple part of an interview is taken care of.
