What are the 4 best Colors to Wear to an Interview?

It’s not just about making a decision between blazer or no blazer, tie or no tie, chunky necklace or no chunky necklace. The color you choose to wear can have a powerful effect on an interviewer’s first impression of you.

Go to my LinkedIN page where I ask this same question and tell me the color(s) of that outfit you like to pick out for your interview. Even better: post a photo of you wearing it!

The answer to the question will be revealed on my next newsletter – and on my LinkedIN!

Some colors might convey professionalism, dependability, or a sense of authoritativeness. Other colors might convey something more negative, like immaturity or laziness.

Additionally, some colors work better for certain career types, according to Cornell University’s career center. For example, if you’re interviewing for a more traditional job in law, business, or banking, stick to neutral colors. If you’re interviewing in a more creative field, express yourself with a pop of green, purple, or yellow.Each color can elicit a different feeling or impression, which we know thanks to color psychology. The human brain is crazy, right?

Head to my LinkedIN page and tell us your color of choice for a job interview. I would love if you posted a photo wearing it!
