Seasonal fabrics are the next piece of your “this job is mine” outfit. After you know the style of outfit you are looking for, the next step is determining the articles of clothing that fit the current season you are in. The fall and winter seasons call for darker colored fabrics that keep you warmer. A few examples include cashmere, wool, and thick cotton. Interviews that are held in the spring and summer months call for lighter colors and fabrics that keep you cool, like thinner cotton, linen, and blended fabrics. Choosing the right fabric is very important, imagine being in an interview in the middle of December with a linen suit on; your focus could shift from the interview questions to how cold you are in that suit. It would be quite distracting to regret your outfit choice amidst an interview. If ever in doubt of what type of fabrics to wear, try wearing something similar a few days before your interview. Thus, allowing you to to get a feel for what you could to wear and adjust any changes that need to be made prior to the interview and not at the last-minute.
