Portfolio - You Are What You Wear

  1. 1. WHAT COLOURS SAY ABOUT YOU INAJOB INTERVIEW
  2. 2. Black Leader: Sophistication, exclusivity Black can be seen as unapproachable, but if you wear it correctly, it can also "communicate glamour, sophistication and exclusivity," says branding expert Karen Haller Black is a colour that is taken seriously. Consider brands such as Chanel and Yves Saint Lauren using black to communicate that they are the leader in their industry Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
  3. 3. Grey Logical&Analytical:Trust and confidence Wearing grey communicates independence or isolation This doesn't have to be a bad thing, as long as you show that you're confident. Since grey is somewhat of a lonely colour, this may say to others that you're very much an individual, who is self-sufficient and capable of thinking on your own Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
  4. 4. Blue Team Player: Trust and confidence Blue is one of the best colours to wear on a job interview because it exudes trust and confidence Lisa Johnson Mandell at AOL Jobs writes: "Studies show that navy blue is the best colour for a suit to wear to a job interview, because it inspires confidence You are more likely to get the job when you wear navy blue to an interview than any other colour" Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
  5. 5. White Organiser: Dull, lackingself esteem Wearing white and beige is a safe bet, but you may be considered "dull and lacking in self confidence" Hiring managers think that white means you're "organized" since any chaos and you may find yourself with an unsightly coffee stain down that white shirt Mandell at AOL Jobs advises wearing white or beige for a job where everyone else wears loud colours Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
  6. 6. Brown Dependable: Warmth and reliability This earthy colour means warmth, safety, reliability, and dependability, says Haller Think of brands that use brown in their logo, such as UPS and the original M&Ms
  7. 7. Red Powerful: Passionand strong Red conveys passion and power and is the best colour to wear when you're trying to persuade or impress someone, says Kenny Frimpong, brand marketing and development manager at Italian menswear brand Eredi Pisano Red is also linked to courage, excitement, and energy Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
  8. 8. Green,Yellowand Purple Creative:Fun and attraction These louder colours communicate that you're fun and attract attention, but they don't necessarily elicit feelings of trust or commitment, which may not be the best message to send in a job interview However, wearing these colours would work great for happy hour gatherings or in-house meetings, says Frimpong Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/best-and-worst-colors-to-wear-to-job-interview-2013-11?IR=T
