You’ve been job hunting and have finally bagged an interview. We’re happy for you. Now comes the hard part. Deciding what to wear. Your wardrobe is super crammed with clothes and you can hardly keep it shut—yet it still feels like you have nothing to wear. Ah nice life problems. The big mistake that most sisters make is feeling like you have to get a new outfit. And most of the time, it ends up being something you only wear to church or a funeral. Oh, that’s just me?! Okay.
‘It's so interesting to me how people dress when they come in for interviews,’ says Wintour in the video. ‘Sometimes you feel like they're wearing clothes that they just bought that morning or maybe the night before, and not something that in any way suits their personality and who they are. I think what everyone should remember, whether they're interviewing at Vogue or indeed anywhere, that we're not hiring your wardrobe. Your wardrobe is not going to be doing the job for you. It's who you are.’ Insert mic drop here.
Wintour goes on to give an example of a man that pulled a Billy Porter and rocked up to an interview in a dress and a handbag a few years ago. She hired him on the spot. Basically, dress for yourself. Do you boo. Unapologetically. All. The. Damn. Time.
