We've all heard the saying “never judge a book by its cover”, but in reality deep down we know that first impressions really do count. An ill-fitting suit just doesn't do you any favours and yet the solution is just round the corner.
First impressions are important. If you are attending that all-important job interview and have just half an hour to impress a potential employer, then it is crucial to make their first impression of you the best it can possibly be. Of course, attitude and experience that is appropriate to the role you are seeking are vital, but your appearance is also one of the main things by which first impressions are created, making it all the more important to make sure that you are dressed to impress.
In almost any circumstance connected with business, not just a job interview, it is always better to be overdressed for the occasion than it is to be underdressed. Buying and wearing a good quality suit is a major first step, but it is also vital for the suit to actually fit you when you put it on. Even a high quality, expensive suit can look cheap and tatty if it does not fit you correctly – and this tends to be the number one mistake that is made by people who are looking to buy a new suit. Different brands and styles of suit can vary dramatically, so it's a good idea to get advice from an experienced assistant while you're in the shop – and to be willing to spend more to ensure the suit is tailored specifically to the shape of your body.
