hmm. president wore a dress shirt and dress pants with no tie? like, he took off the tie during the day?

i'd say....the best piece of advice i ever got was that you can never be over-dressed. sure, you might come off as trying too hard or whatever. but it's better to turn up in a suit in a casual environment than to look like a surfer at a bank.

but here's the thing....if you're dressed well and qualified? they'll over-look being over-dressed. they aren't stupid, they know you're interviewing. pay less attention to what everyone is wearing, dress the way people should dress for an interview, and be your fabulous self!

go with dress pants, dress shirt, and wear a tie.

it'll show respect and you won't risk being under-dressed.

all the best!

I think I'd go with the jacket but no tie too. Obviously make sure it's a dress shirt you would normally wear with a tie, but the jacket dresses it up enough on its own. At least that's my humble opinion.

And like Deb said, it's better to err on the side of overdressed.

Deb - thanks for reading and for sharing your perspective. Love your recent posting on the abundance of technology upgrades we are confronted with!

Kelly - thanks for stopping by to comment. I looked at your typepad profile and it looks like you are connected with some interesting blogs but I couldn't find anything you've written - can you send me a link or two?

I hope Jason's interview went well. I personally would err on the side of being over-dressed. Deb's comment "if you're dressed well and qualified?" made me think she was going to mention the flip side--if you're qualified but not well dressed, they might think twice.

My real comment is a side-note about your reference to Nordstrom's Smartcare shirts for men. Why hasn't women's clothing caught up with the wrinkle-free technology? Do the maker's of clothes think I ought to be elated that I don't have to iron hubby's shirt, but I still enjoy wasting time ironing my own?

Congratulations on that very difficult decision. I encourage you to stay in that realm of being you, remember there is no competition there.
Make your uniqueness non-negotiable. Realize that when you enter the “competition phase” it is because you abandon your uniqueness and that you will compromise other areas in order to “win“or prove yourself a success.
