There’s nothing worse than turning up for an interview and you’ve missed the attire ‘memo’. You may as well have turned up naked, and that reoccurring dream that haunted you since you were a child has just materialized. But of course, help is at hand here at MyTights.com! Here’s some guidance on how to ace that interview, and as we are judged within the first 7 seconds of meeting someone, the appearance is a pretty good place to start…
94% of interviewers have a negative impression on a candidate if they show up bare-legged*
Unfortunately we aren’t all blessed with naturally slender or blemish free legs, (or hot weather all year round!), and so this may not apply to many- if Miranda Kerr and Beyoncé still invest in sheers then there’s no reason why we shouldn’t!
Years ago the debate on whether women should or shouldn’t wear tights to the workplace was unheard of, and pantyhose were a woman’s best friend. Many women still live by this, and this is something candidates need to consider! Your potential employers are probably not your age so wearing tights is a must for them, and as a potential newbie you don’t want to give any of the senior team a reason to dislike you! After you’ve been hired, you can then get a feel for the company to then decided whether going bare-legged can be accepted.
You may be asked to dress in business casual and if so then fretting whether you should or shouldn’t wear tights won’t be an issue. BUT don’t assume that all businesses dress this way; make sure to ask and get a full brief policy description.
“For women, the more skin you show, the less influence you have.”
So, now we’ve discovered that tights are a BIG deal in an interview (who knew?!) now all you have to do is CHOOSE a pair…
Colours are limited, as although coloured and patterned tights are ‘in’, wearing the newest AW14 trend to an interview for a financial position in a bank may not be appreciated; so for ultimate safety stick to Nude or Black tights.
These 50 denier suede matt opaque tights are an essential to the winter wardrobe this season, super soft and smooth against your legs they can be worn with any fabric skirt and perfect for an interview!
These sheers have been around since 1937 (with a few tweaks to keep them up to date with hosiery innovation, of course), so we are pretty certain that they are a good catch. These 10 denier tights are cherished for their ultra-glossy finish, and with high durability and wear you can’t go wrong!
With a broad selection of dark colours to choose from, these glossy Wolfords will have any interviewer wishing they’ve got a pair!
