A recent CareerBuilder survey makes the connection between colors and employers’ impressions of them. Over 2,000 hiring managers and human resources professionals from a variety of industries and company sizes were surveyed.
They were asked to advise job applicants on the best color to wear to a job interview. Their top pick? Blue. (Although admittedly, blue received only 23% of the total vote.)
What made this ensemble sing? The blush shell (almost like the one shown but with no embellishments at the neckline) and a rose-gold Michael Kors chronograph watch worked to soften up the brown suit and were spot on compliments to her skin tone and hair color. The large tote (again, almost a match to the one she was carrying) was large enough to let her slip her laptop inside-she was our PowerPoint queen-eliminating the need to lug along a clunky and ugly company issued laptop bag.
