I know I've been missing in action, but since my assignment ended last week I have been ridiculously popular with employers (not that I'm complaining!). So preparing for interviews and getting my elevator pitch together has been my complete focus for the past week.
I realized belatedly that I've rarely had formal interviews in depths of sloppy winter. It's not just cold here (it was bitterly cold last week). It's messy with salt and slush.
So before I get into what I wore I am curious about the forum's take on what to wear to a professional conservative interview when temps are subzero with even colder wind chills. Do you favor warmth over style or do you have a strategy for getting the best of both worlds? I'd love to get your thoughts on combining the best of both worlds.
So I am wearing layers today and they were warm (no long johns needed) . I did not need to worry too much today because it was in the tolerable 20's today which was a major improvement. However it was slushy and sloppy -- so there were tall boots to protect my pant hems that were worn to my destination and promptly left in the car. I'm wearing:
- Le Suit jacket in black
- Talbot's button down shirt in white
- Old Navy cardigan in cerulean
- Apt. 9 long length trousers in black
- Nickel's patent heels in black
