Top 8 Towson interview suit stores

Never wear a scruffy t-shirt, ragged jeans, and dirty sneakers. Never wear a suit that is too tight, too big, or too ratty; so avoid getting a suit at the Salvation Army or thrift stores. Always dress a step up from the typical attire you'd wear daily at the office. A step up usually means a suit, so find one that fits. Ladies, watch out for wide shoulder pads. Guys, solid shirt colors are a safe bet to match your jacket.

Don't just open your closet and throw on some clothes. Invest in a suit that fits.

  • Conservative colors / fabric
  • Navy, dark gray (and black for women) — are safe.
  • Other color trends may come and go; avoid the extremes.
  • Solids or very subtle weave patterns or plaids (the type that look solid across a room) are safest.
  • Always choose a two-pieced suit. The paired skirt for women and silk tie for men should match.
