What to Wear: The Dapper Man's Guide to Fashion PR Interview Attire

Whether you are up for a coveted spring 2012 fashion PR internship or well on your way to landing the c-suite dream job you are destined for, make the right impression with the following fashion advice from Michael Shane:

It's easy to get lost in the crowd with the rest of the suits. In fashion PR, it is imperative that your style  stands out - unlike other professions, in fashion PR, you are what you wear. At least when it comes to making a first impression. When dressing for an interview, think tailoring. Everything on a man should be tailored to fit your body. Invest in a well tailored suit. If you're on a budget, honestly, H&M Slim Fit suits work perfectly, and at around $250, are a great option. If you're going out for a senior level position, you should already own at least one well tailored, wool italian suit. The suit color is not as important as your shirt, tie, shoes and other accessories. We know how hard it is for men to accessorize, but it can be done. The shirt should pop, as it, along with the tie, is your pièce de résistance. Go for bold colors and textures, gingham, check, or stripes will do the trick. Offset this with an opposite colored/patterned tie or simply go solid. Or vice versa... a solid colorful shirt with a bold patterned, skinny tie. And finally, the shoes. Again, go the distance and invest in something that will get noticed such as a nice pair of wingtips. You won't think so but the tinniest details do get noticed. If you can pull it off, throw on a bow-tie. A real one, NOT a clip on. This is the ultimate men's fashion accessory. Add a tie bar and a pocket square and your interviewer will know that you mean business... Fashion business! Good luck.

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, the founder of PR Couture and a fashion brand strategist. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixer sessions or shoot me a note.
