3 The right shoes are essential – at some point your interviewer will look you up and down and their gaze will ultimately finish on your shoes. A closed toe with a mid heel is probably the safest bet.

4 Black is sometimes boring – try adding a subtle splash of colour or a pattern to brighten up your look.

5 Jeans are a big no! Opt for a gorgeous pair of tailored pants instead.

7 If you’re not the adventurous type opt for the perfect combination of a white silk blouse and black fitted trousers.

8 The perfect pantsuit is a foolproof interview outfit – but if you don’t own one don’t improvise. Wait until you come across one that fits you perfectly and looks amazing.
