Serious About Suits

erez1The gurus running the New York Times Style section tell us that interview suits are back. Skirts, pants, blouses, the works. I definitely wore a jacket to my last interview, but it was a swingy, plaid 60’s style paired with black wide-leg trousers and black ankle boots. I did get the job (and the HR rep told me she had the same jacket). But that was the generally creatively dressed publishing industry, and it was almost a year ago.
With the current unemployment rate at a 14-year high (over half a million jobs have been lost in the past three months), job seekers are going for serious, solemn and rock solid.
So how can the job seekers among us still ensure maximum memorability? Blouses and jewelry in rich colors, and, of course, memorable shoes. I can’t take my eyes off the Isabella pumps, on sale now at JCrew. At $170, they’re still a little pricey, but think of it as a career investment.
